CZ Scorpion Evo3 Carbine

Colion Noir got his hands on two new Scorpion rifles. They will come in two versions. A muzzle comped version and one with a faux suppressor made by Silencer Co.

Evo Carbine 1


According to Colion, the rifles variants of the Scorpion Evo3 MSRP price is near $1000. When you factor the stock 922R kit, for the pistol, costs $200 from CZ-USA and then add a $200 tax stamp, the SBR will cost a bit more than the Carbine. So if you don’t need a short barrel, then the Carbine may be for you. I am very interested in the faux suppressor version and wonder if CZ-USA will be selling the new extended forends separately to retrofit the Evo pistols? I do like MLOK slots.

    Are the forearms plastic? I’m just curious, because for the time being, I’m without an NFA option. But if I bought the rifle version, could that be SBR’d and remove some of the forearm with it? Or in that case would it be cheaper to go with the pistol version + the $400?

    Stupid laws make my head hurt.

      There appear to be very faint molding lines so yes they are polymer (or at least the ones in the video are). The current Evo has polymer handguard and it is very sturdy.

      No NFA fun here in Iowa either.

        Hey fellow Iowan 🙂 I’m not putting much stock in the 2016 session either, but I suppose we’ll play the game again.

  • Evil13RT

    Not sure about the forearms, but if you were to SBR+Suppress it then that would fit under the longer housing and would look quite sexy.

    If only we could get NFA in the Virgin Islands…. >_<
    Just getting a coupon for this is going to take me months.

    • hking

      Exactly what I am counting on for my SBR with a can. That would look dope tittys if it only sticks out a inch or so from the end of the handguard.

      • kipy

        I always try to achieve “dope tittys” level of excellence when kitting out a rifle lol

    • Anonymoose

      If Silencerco put an actual suppressor on there that is permanently part of the barrel, making it over 16″ from the factory, it would only need one tax stamp and be allowed over state lines without waiting for ATF approval.

      • iksnilol

        But mah modularity.


      • nobody

        Or one could weld a tube to the barrel that would bring it to 16″ that the suppressor would fit inside. I’ve seen pictures of people doing this with AR-15s.

    • Jack

      Take my NFA…. PLEASE!!

  • thedonn007

    I want to like it, but I already have a 9 mm AR-15.

  • Jambo

    Already own a scorpion, and while the carbines look sexy, my main attraction to it is that it fits in a backpack. The carbines look like nice toys, though. Wondering if I should get one.

  • Kyle

    Out of curiosity how modular are these scorpions? Every time I see one I kinda want it but I’m not sure I I want to take the plunge or just go SBR with my AR and pay for the tax stamp on a new upper.

    • Dracon1201

      Pretty damn modular. One benefit to the Scorpion over an AR is the lack of a buffer tube. The aftermarket has really taken hold of the Scorpion. It will only get better.

      • Kyle

        Well I am probably gonna have to buy one of these soon. After Christmas. Damn family eating up all my fun money lol. Tough choice between the pistol or carbine though.

  • DAN V.

    Anyone else thinking XM8?

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    No ETA?

    Or are we waiting on SHOT for that?

    • Nicholas Chen

      Probably Shot Show.

  • MrEllis

    How was this not the obvious choice CZ… Now give us a BREN semi!

  • USMC03Vet

    Make it in 7.62×39 and we got a deal, CZ.

    • Squirreltakular

      I was thinking the same, but for 5.56. Either way, it would probably be the sexiest rifle out there.

  • FarmerB

    Well, I’d hate a “pistol calibre carbine” as well if the only two options were no stock or 16″ barrel. Obviously, if you have to have a 16″ barrel, why not use it with a real calibre? Makes sense.
    But that’s the fault of the silly US laws, not the platform.
    One of these with an approx. 8″ barrel just has a lot going for it.

  • MrWuffles

    Call me narrow-minded, but I feel like the whole point of this platform is to be an SBR. Also, are we ever going to see the Bren in a rifle configuration stateside?

  • Christopher Edward Penta

    Pistol weighs 7.75 lbs.

    Carbine is gonna end up weighing, what, 8.5? For a 9mm carbine? No thanks.
