I have always enjoyed CZ-USA firearms. In the past I had two pistols and my dad had many throughout the years. Through trading, we both had parted with our CZ-USA firearms, but we have had overall great experiences with them. Then I found out about a fairly new firearm from CZ-USA: the CZ-USA Scorpion EVO. Ever since hearing about this firearm I knew I wanted one and since owning one for about a year now, I can say that I won’t be parting with this firearm.
The CZ-USA Scorpion EVO was introduced to the American marketplace as a pistol but the original design was a sub machine gun. It is chambered in 9mm. The CZ-USA Scorpion EVO pistol is a light weight pistol, made with several polymer features to reduce weight. The overall length is 16 inches and it came with two 20 round magazines, but you can buy 30 round magazines. The MSRP of the CZ-USA Scorpion EVO pistol is $849 but I was able to acquire mine for a little less than that. I’m not going to go into all the features and the specifications of the pistol as I want to give you my impressions and experience with it.
Before taking the firearm out to the range, I attached a Sig Sauer red dot sight, buffer tube and Shockwave Technologies’ stabilizing pistol blade to add stability making firing the firearm easier. The blade rests on your forearm as you operate the firearm. I shot the firearm from 15 yards to 50 yards and it was a joy to shoot. Out to 15 yards I was shooting a steel tree target and I was ringing the target. Even out to 50 yards, the pistol still performed great. With the red dot, the pistol is very accurate. Not taking anything away from the iron sights as they are very good and the sight radius can be adjusted. I shot my father’s CZ-USA Scorpion EVO at 20 yards with just the iron sights and I was very accurate and able to acquire the target fast. The firearm did not have any failures since I have owned it. I have put at least 500 rounds through it.
I do want to mention that this firearm would be an excellent short barrel rifle. My father loved my CZ-USA Scorpion EVO pistol so much he brought one himself and was able to turn the pistol into a short barrel rifle by going through the proper ATF registration. If you are interested in this firearm, you will enjoy it. I shot different types of 9mm ammo and it functioned flawlessly through the firearm. Because of the light weight versatility, light recoil, and ability to accessorize it, the CZ-USA Scorpion EVO is my home defense pistol. This is a great firearm for close quarters.
