The CZ Scorpion EVO 3 set the standard for large format 9mm pistols. The new CZ Scorpion 3+ builds on those proven features, adding customer-requested upgrades. The fully redesigned pistol not only improves the Scorpion’s ergonomics and user-friendly operation, but it incorporates advanced materials that are tougher and lighter than before.
Ambidextrous AR-style Controls
Ambidextrous controls are the gold standard in modern firearm design. In addition to the ambi safety found on the EVO 3, the Scorpion 3+ includes an ambidextrous bolt catch allowing for the user to operate it left or right-handed. Furthermore, the new AR-style mag release is accessible on both sides. The operation of the 3+ is now super intuitive – essential in high-stress situations! In fact, you can check out the review of the Scorpion 3+ on Ballistic to see just how easy it is to shoot.
The new ergonomic grip design makes it a more comfortable shooting experience for the user. For example, the M-LOK® handguard is now upgraded from aluminum to polymer to reduce heat transfer.
Lightweight and Functional Upper Receiver
A slimmed-down upper receiver accommodates more options when attaching different accessories to replace the end cap. Additionally, the redesigned magwell is resized, adding more purchase on the handguard for large or gloved hands. The adjustable four aperture aluminum sights are updated to deliver lower 1/3 co-witness because when you’re using popular red dots, it provides a better sight picture and reliable backup.
CZ added recessed texture to the magazine for positive purchase during reloads. Users will also notice a locking window on the mag body that accommodates the new AR-style mag release. New Scorpion 3+ magazines are also compatible with previous generations of the Scorpion.
Ready for Anything
Lastly, the micro features a 4.2-inch cold hammer-forged barrel is threaded 1/2×28 and comes equipped with a removable flash can. Equally important, the micro is an extremely compact pistol for maneuverability in tight quarters. The newly redesigned CZ Scorpion 3+ pistols build on the success of the original’s proven features with enhancements throughout the gun. It’s also compatible with the same types of pistol braces on early Scorpion pistols. Additionally, the Scorpion 3+ will be compatible with the new drum magazine from Magpul when that mag is available.
