CZ’s Scorpion EVO 3, a large format 9 mm pistol, turned heads when it was released back in 2009, and the company’s new Scorpion 3+ (MSRP: $1,299) builds on the original by adding customer-requested upgrades. Boasting improved ergonomics and operation, the new CZ Scorpion 3+ also incorporates advanced materials in its design.

Overall length of the CZ Scorpion 3+ Micro is 14.63 inches, overall heigh is 8.9 inches and the width is 2.4 inches. Weight is 4.7 pounds.

 

Ambidextrous controls are increasingly found in modern firearms. Building on the ambidextrous safety already found on the EVO 3, the Scorpion 3+ adds an ambi bolt catch. And the new AR-style mag release is accessible on both sides.

The new grip design should make for a more comfortable shooting experience. Additionally, the M-LOK handguard has been upgraded from aluminum to polymer, which CZ says will reduce heat transfer.

The polymer grips are adjustable for reach to trigger.

 

A slimmed-down upper receiver accommodates more options when attaching different accessories to replace the end cap. A redesigned magazine well has been 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 capabilities with popular red-dot optics.

The CZ Scorpion 3+ micro also includes a 4.2-inch cold hammer-forged barrel that is threaded 1/2×28 and comes equipped with a removable flash can.

CZ added recessed texture to the Scorpion 3+ magazine for positive purchase during reloads. Shooters will also notice a locking window on the magazine body that accommodates the new AR-style mag release. New Scorpion 3+ magazines are also compatible with previous generations of the Scorpion.
