CZ Scorpion Evo3 2015 Import

According to Gunners Vault, rumor has it that Česká zbrojovka (CZ-USA) will be importing the Scorpion Evo3 next year. Currently it is only available as a SBR for MIL/LE. I wait with bated breath to see one at Shot Show 2015.

MSRP will supposedly be $850 and will be released as a Pistol without the stock. Hopefully this happens and someone clever makes an adapter to use a SB15 Sig Brace on it.

I got a chance to shoot one last July when I was in the Czech Republic. I could not stop grinning while shooting it. The Evo3 is a really fun gun to shoot. Half way into the video below is where I shoot the Evo3.


Update: CZ-USA sent us the correct MSRP which is $850. Much better than the previously thought $1850.

    Interesting. It really looks like a pistol-caliber G36. What caliber(s) does CZ plan to offer it in?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      There is definitely HK influence there, esp in the selector. 9 means 40 and potentially .357sig (lol), but just from the latest photos I’m not sure anyone could determine if it would fit 45acp or not, doesn’t look like it.

      • Zachary marrs

        I have to admit, if it came in .357 sig, id buy it for the wtf factor

  • echelon

    If it doesn’t beat the new Sig on price it’s going to have some tough competition…especially if it isn’t brace compatible right outta the box…

    Meh, $1800 Direct blowback gun. 1980’s tech in a 2014 shell.

  • Andrew

    $1,800 blowback…LOL

    I’m going to guess you have never owned a 9mm AR. Because while they have some commonality uses, they aren’t exactly a replacement for a MPX or EVO.

      tnw asr is got me hot and bothered, at 500 smackers, but havent got one yet…

      • Cymond

        I thought the TNW ASR was more like $800. If they’re available for $500, that moves it up a few notches on my shopping list! I don’t really like Glocks, so maybe I’ll trade my G34.

  • hydepark

    Just wondering what the problem with blowback is? Sorry if this is common knowledge but I don’t remember people knocking the Kriss for being blowback.

    Personally I love the looks of the CZ much better and Sig has a lot of making up to do for me to ever consider purchasing another one of their products.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      90% of it is people talking about alternatives as if they are better because they read the same on the internet. Blowback is apparently inferior to delayed locking in all cases. While it’s true in some cases (9mm ARs do suck), it’s definitely not always. One example, the simple blowback Uzi is a beast when it comes to just working, the non-blowback B&T TP9 I had blew hard when suppressed or with hot ammo. I love my MP5 fullsize, but I’d take a CZ EVO or a UMP over one if I knew I could never buy factory parts and really had to use it hard.

      Blowback is old, as old as semi-auto firearms, but there isn’t anything inherently wrong with that. It has a lot of advantages in complexity, cost, and reliability. But…. If you remember, for quite some time some of these people mocking blowback think Piston ARs are naturally superior to DI ARs.

      IMO, a huge advantage for CZ could be that the EVO is blowback. If they exploit those advantages. Compared to the SIG MPX where each barrel has it’s own gas system attached to it, that’ll drive up cost, parts count, potential issues without question.

  • salty

    i dont care which is better or mudular, i care only about the name on the side, “if it says CZ, its for ME!”

    1800 is a chunk, but its sexy.

  • Anonymoose

    I’ve heard some disparaging remarks about the Evo3 from a couple former Czech soldiers. It might be just that they consider inferior to an assault rifle, but it’s still got to be better than a Vz61 or just a CZ75 for a personal defense weapon.

  • Dr. Daniel Jackson

    Personally I would rather have this Skorpion vz 61 instead.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    $850 MSRP seems exceptionally low. Like that’s closer to the code of those Hipoint carbines 😉

    If that’s true, they’ll have a einner on their hands. I remeber HK claiming the cost on the UMP would be “disposable” around $650. Lol at the $3000 people regularly pay for them.

    If it’s $850 retail, it’ll be real competition to SIG. Which is awesome. The next two years are going to be fantastic for market selections SN availability.

    • hydepark

      This is what I’m hoping too.

  • totenglocke

    If the NFA were repealed, this would be my first purchase. Second purchase would be a silencer for it.

  • ThomasD

    Rather see a stocked carbine version in 10mm or .45 acp.

  • Nick is doing a follow up with the correct price the company gave me today.

  • Ethan

    For $850?!? And its a CZ??

    Shut up and take my money.
