What Is A CZ Scorpion?

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

The CZ Scorpion Evo 3 is a semi-automatic carbine that is chambered in 9mm. There are a few different variations of this firearm and different configurations.

Out of all of them, the most common is the pistol version.

The upgrades, parts, and accessories mentioned in this article will work for all of the different variants.

The CZ Scorpion Evo 3 uses polymer as its primary material in the construction which offers a lot of benefits. Mainly decreasing the weight, excellent ergonomics, high accuracy, comfortable handling, and ease of disassembly.

This gun is popular because of how versatile and modular the platform is. Also, it is less expensive compared to some of the similar types of firearms from other manufacturers.

CZ Scorpion Stock Upgrade

There are 2 stock setups that are the best for the CZ Scorpion.

You are limited to what style of stock or pistol brace you can have to depend on your barrel length.

Both of these setups will be for a CZ Scorpion pistol.

F5 MFG Modular Stock System with CZ Scorpion Adapter

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This is the best option in my opinion for a stock upgrade. It functions great and looks amazing on the firearm.

The F5 MFG Modular Stock System w/ Adaptor looks like something you would see on a Scar 17.

It truly gives this gun a whole new feel.

For this accessory to work correctly you will need the folding stock adapter which is included.

The installation is very easy and this offers a lot of adjustment that can be fine-tuned for any shooter.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

You will also need the Gear Head Works Tail Hook Mod 1 for this upgrade.

It will keep your pistol from being considered a short barrel rifle and it also functions great as its intended purpose.

This mod is easy to install and works great.

Keep in mind that you will need both the F5 MFG Modular Stock System with CZ Scorpion Adapter and the Gear Head Works Tail Hook Mod 1 for this stock setup to work correctly.

SB Tactical SBT Evo Pistol Brace

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This is another good option for the CZ Scorpion but I recommend the previous setup more.

The SB Tactical SBT Evo Pistol Brace is easier and simpler to attach to your firearm though.

It works great and the folding mechanism is rock solid. There is no adjustment on this brace though and the length of pull is fixed.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

That is why I prefer the previous setup and these braces are becoming harder to find and purchase.

Also, SB Tactical is always being threatened by the ATF so this is why they are becoming more difficult to find.

Best CZ Scorpion Trigger

One of the best upgrades you can do to your CZ Scorpion is a trigger upgrade.

There are 2 different trigger upgrades that I recommend. There first is a traditional drop-in-style trigger system that will greatly improve the pull which will help increase accuracy.

The second is a binary trigger system if you want to get spicy.

Timney Triggers CZ Scorpion Trigger

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

If you haven’t used a Timney Trigger in the past, then you must try one of them. I love these triggers.

The Timney Scorpion Trigger is excellent and one of the best upgrades you can do to your firearm and give it a completely different feel when shooting.

It will change the trigger pull to 2 – 3 lbs and will have a crisp break.

The difference when adding this trigger is night and day.

Franklin Armory BFSIII CZ Scorpion Binary Firing System

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Want to shoot fast? The Franklin Armory BFSIII CZ Scorpion Binary Firing System will let you do exactly that.

This is a binary trigger system that will fire 2 rounds with a single trigger pull and release.

With a fast enough trigger finger, you can simulate full-auto firing. Keep in mind you will definitely burn through way more ammo with this trigger.

It is a drop-in-style trigger system and easy to install.

This might not be for everyone but I recommend this upgrade if you have not yet owned a binary trigger system because soon you might not be able to own them.

My opinion is to get it while you can.

We currently live in the golden era of firearms technology so why not take advantage.

Best CZ Scorpion Optics

No setup is complete without a high-quality optic. There are a lot of different options when it comes to an optic for the CZ Scorpion.

These are the best CZ Scorpion optic setups that I recommend:

  1. Trijicon MRO HD
  2. EOTech EXPS3
  3. Aimpoint T2

Trijicon MRO HD

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

The Trijicon MRO HD is an upgraded version of the original. They have improved the emitter and the dot is much more clear and crisp.

The battery life is great and it has a sharp 2 MOA dot with a 68 MOA ring. Users can choose between reticles also.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Lots of brightness settings and also night vision modes.

It is built using a completely aluminum housing which is 25mm. So it is larger compared to other optics.

This gives the user a wider field of view and is preferred by a lot of people.

The adjustments are in 1/2 MOA increments. When zeroing this optic, you can get extremely precise.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

It is lightweight and very reliable. Waterproof down to 100 FT and runs on a single 2032 style battery.

You can purchase this optic with different mounting options, however, I recommend an aftermarket mount made by Gessiele.

Geissele Super Precision MRO Series Scope Mount

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This is the absolute best mount you can get for the Trijicon MRO HD. They also make the same mount for the Aimpoint T2 which I will talk about later.

The Geissele Super Precision MRO Mount is my go-to mounting system.

It is simple and strong and will hold zero no problem. I tend to keep whatever optic I have mounted on a particular firearm there for a while and do like changing optics to different platforms constantly.

For this reason, I do not like quick change mounts. I prefer solid and permanent setups.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This thing is completely rock solid and I use this mount on all of my setups. (if Geissele makes it for that specific optic)

I believe this is truly the best mount available on the market and many other people agree.

Geissele makes this in two different colors also, the desert dirt color looks great in my opinion.

They make different heights too. Absolute co-witness, lower 1/3rd co-witness, and no co-witness.

I recommend going with the lower 1/3rd co-witness due to the fact it is the most comfortable height when shouldering the firearm and you will not have to adjust your head too much searching for the dot.

This mount will work with both versions of the Trijicon MRO. It will also work if you decide to add a magnifier and will not obstruct operation.

EOTech EXPS3

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

The EOTech EXPS3 has been around for a while and is still one of the best options when adding a red dot.

Technically it is not a red dot and actually a holographic weapon sight.

This major difference is why I recommend this style of an optic to anyone who has astigmatism.

It will still appear very clear and crisp if you have one.

A circle with a dot in the center is what the EOTech EXPS3 uses. I like the single dot for a 9mm firearm. This style of sight is lightning fast for target acquisition and also when transitioning from multiple targets.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

The EOTech EXPS3’s have been battle-tested and used by militaries and police departments all across the globe.

The battery life isn’t as good as the Trijicon or the Aimpoint but the huge field of view and the reliability outweighs this.

You do not have to buy a mount separate because the EOTech EXPS3 has the mounting system integrated.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

They are heavier compared to most other similar sights, but because the CZ Scorpion Evo 3 is light to start, the EOTech EXPS3 is a perfect upgrade.

This is one of the best accessories you can add to your CZ Scorpion.

Aimpoint T2

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

The gold standard for the best micro red dot is the Aimpoint T2.

This is the absolute best micro red dot that money can buy. It is perfect for the CZ Scorpion Evo 3 because of how light the optic is.

It comes with 2 lens covers that are now transparent and flip-up.

The glass is of outstanding quality and the clarity of the dot itself is stunning.

The Aimpoint T2 is compatible with all generations of night vision goggles and the popular PVS-14.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

The objective tube is on the smaller end and is only 18mm, so people that are used to EOTech-style holographic sights may find this too small.

Aimpoints are known for their insanely long battery life. This optic is no exception with 50,000 hrs of operating time on a single battery.

The dot is a 2 MOA size dot which is perfect for a pistol caliber carbine.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This optic is robust and reliable. It is quick and does exactly what a red dot should do but you can rest easy knowing it will not fail.

The Aimpoint T2 is battle-proven and bomb-proof.

Geissele Super Precision T2 Mount

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Just like the Trijicon MRO, Geissele makes a mount for the Aimpoint T2.

The Geissele Super Precision T2 Mount is the best option for mounting an Aimpoint T2.

It is made from type III hard anodized 7075-T6 aluminum, so it is light and strong. With a clamping force of 1,400 lbs.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Geissele is one of my personal favorite companies in the firearms industry, and their quality is second to none.

When searching for aftermarket parts and accessories, the first place I check is Geissele to see if they make the part I’m looking for.

Again, these are produced in 3 different heights. Lower 1/3rd is what I recommend.

Midwest Industries MLOK Handguard Cz Scorpion

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Changing out the stock CZ Scorpion Evo 3 handguard is something that you must do in order to build the ultimate firearm.

The Midwest Industries MLOK Handguard is perfect for this.

It is rock solid and is a very strong handguard. This one is 6.75″ so it works perfectly for the 8″ barrel version of the CZ Scorpion.

MLOK is the best mounting option compared to Keymod. It isn’t as strong as a qual rail but for most accessories on the market, they are becoming more and more MLOK compatible.

For mounting a weapon flashlight, tape switch, and an angled foregrip or hand stop, this is the best solution. A vertical grip is not allowed on pistols.

Best CZ Scorpion Weapon Flashlight

Being able to properly identify your target is vital in a self-defense situation. That is why every serious defense weapon must be equipped with a good flashlight.

The best flashlight to accomplish this is the Surefire M600. The next best option is the Surefire ProTac HL.

Both of these will work great.

Surefire M600

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This is the preferred setup but it is an expensive setup as well. I like adding this flashlight because of how bright and reliable it is.

The Surefire M600 is the best flashlight on the market today.

These lights are military grade and are also battle-proven.

The beam is extremely bright and can be mounted very close to the center of the bore. An optional Tail Cap Tape Switch can be added for a better tactical setup with momentary on and off.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

I recommend mounting this flashlight to your rail with an Arisaka Defense Inline Mount. It is simple and keeps the flashlight very close to the rail reducing the risk of snagging.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

If you decide to add the tape switch with the weapon light you will need a mount for the switch as well. The best mount to achieve this is the Cloud Defensive LCS Mount.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

It is low profile and has the ability to route the wire under the mount for good cable management.

Streamlight ProTac HL

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This light is very good and definitely more affordable than the previous light mentioned. I own a few of the Streamlight ProTac HL flashlights and they have never failed me.

This flashlight is insanely bright and reliable. To add this to your handguard you only need to remove the pocket clip that it comes with and add it to a standard 1″ weapon light mount.

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

This AIM Sports MLOK Mount works great and it is also a 45 degree offset mount. This will give you more options when mounting your flashlight while keeping it close to the center of the bore.

Again, this will keep your setup clean and prevent snagging.

Best CZ Scorpion Pistol Grip

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Upgrading the pistol grip on the CZ Scorpion Evo 3 is also something that I recommend doing to complete your setup.

The standard grip that comes from the factory leaves much to be desired in a pistol grip.

The Magpul CZ Scorpion EVO Grip is a big improvement over the factory grip. The grip angle is more vertical and comfortable when firing.

On the Magpul, the grip texture is better and is more ergonomic. This is an inexpensive upgrade and really does complete the build.

ETS CZ Scorpion EVO 3 9mm 40-Round Magazine

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Also, you will need some extra magazines. Why not get the 40 round mags.

ETS Clear 40 RD Scorpion Mags work great and look awesome. I personally like being able to see the rounds through the clear plastic.

They make 30 round ones too but like I said, why not pick up a couple of the 40 round mags.

These can be picked up for a very fair price.

Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Sling

Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades & Accessories

Finally, a good firearm setup is not complete without a good sling. My preferred sling for all my setups is the Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Sling.

It is a traditional nylon webbed sling but this one offers quick adjustment. I actually own a few of these and they work great.

There are a lot of different color options and camo patterns available.

Final Considerations

If you want to make your firearm more enjoyable and fun when shooting then the accessories and upgrades I mentioned in this article are a must. Not only will it be more fun to shoot, but it will also be a more effective firearm. Even if you are just a firearms enthusiast.

Adding even only a few of these to your kit will upgrade the features. The OEM firearm is awesome and a great platform to build on. OEM parts have a history of not being that great.

Manticore Arms also make some good parts that were not mentioned in this post. Manticore Arms parts have been hard to find, so I left them out, and until Manticore Arms parts become more easily available, I won’t list any.

An extended magazine release and a better charging handle might want to be added for some people. I don’t mind the standard magazine release and I honestly believe how I set this gun up is perfect for home defense as well.

Most people use a pistol for a home defense weapon already so why not have a pistol caliber carbine.

CZ Scorpion FAQ

Is the CZ Scorpion worth it?

The CZ Scorpion is an excellent platform and makes a great self-defense weapon and home defense gun. It is compact, and with all of the different configurations, it makes the perfect truck gun as well.

Is the CZ Scorpion better than the Sig MPX?

If you are looking at price alone, the CZ Scorpion is a better deal than the Sig MPX, but when it comes to features and customization, the MPX is better.

Is the CZ Scorpion an SBR?

If you add a stock to the CZ Scorpion pistol it then becomes an SBR. You can get a pistol brace or get a longer barrel if you do not want it to be classified as an SBR.
