CZ Scorpion EVO 3 submachine gun fireproof testing

CZ Scorpion EVO 3 survives a 30 second trial by fire. Shoots flawlessly right after.

The CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1 is a compact submachine gun in 9mm Luger. With a blowback-operated action, the Scorpion can empty its magazine in a hair over 1 1/2 seconds. Equipped with a folding, adjustable LOP stock, accuracy can be had out to 250 yards. The stock can be removed completely to create a surprisingly controllable machine pistol.

To make the Scorpion user-customizable, the grip radius is adjustable for different hand sizes, the charging handle is reversible and the mag release is ambidextrous.

The Evo’s frame and trigger guard assembly are made of a lightweight polymer with monolithic top rail and accessory rails on sides and bottom. Field strip is made simple with two captured pins that allow the removal of the trigger guard assembly, enabling easy removal of the bolt and all moving parts.
