Manticore Arms 15 M-LOK Handguard for CZ Scorpion EVO (1)

Manticore Arms has announced that their new 15″ M-LOK handguard for CZ Scorpion EVO 3 PCCs is now available. According to the company, this handguard “will fit all models of Scorpion EVO including the carbine, pistol, S2 Micro, and EVO’s using the Bullpup Conversion Kit“.

The Manticore Arms handguard continues the lines of the upper receiver of Scorpion EVO 3. When installed, it almost looks like a single piece with the receiver.

The Manticore Arms new CZ Scorpion handguard is made of 6061 aluminum and has a Type III mil-spec hard coat anodized finish. With 9 rows of M-LOK slots (two on each side, one at the bottom and four rows at intermediate 45-degree positions) this handguard provides 44 M-LOK slots in total. It also features a top Picatinny rail and two built-in QD sling swivel sockets at its rear portion. The mounting system of this handguard also allows to free float the barrel.

The overall weight (including the mounting block) of the handguard is 19.4 oz. The company points out that it is only two ounces heavier than the 12″ original polymer handguard yet provides three inches of added handguard length. Such a long handguard will be a useful feature for those of you who prefer mounting accessories, such as weapon lights, far forward on the handguard or for those who practice the “C-clamp” grip or just prefer to fully extend the support hand. Another benefit of a longer handguard is that it will provide more cover for the suppressor and depending on the length of the can and barrel, may even fully enclose the silencer. Manticore Arms mentions that suppressors with an outside diameter of up to 1.5″ will fit inside this handguard.

The Manticore Arms 15″ Scorpion EVO 3 handguard is listed on the company’s website at an MSRP of $179. The handguard ships with its mounting block and all the hardware necessary to install it on the weapon.

    Judging by the amount of aftermarket growth in the recent years incl Magpul mags, It seems that pretty soon the scorpion will be the standard that other pcc are measured by.

      @Biff Thanks! I got the case for like $40 or $50 at Harbor Freight. Once I settle on the final configuration of the gun I'm gonna spray the pick-apart foam with Plast-Dip to give it longevity, somebody else tipped me to that but it'll be my first time doing it.

    Im not quite sure what the point of this is over the factory CZ long handguard, it looks bigger and heavier, hardly cheap, and do you really need that many more mlok points? Particularly for a gun that should be lighter and smaller than an intermediate cartridge rifle?
