NRA Gun of the Week: CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 Pistol

The third iteration of the CZ Scorpion submachine gun was unveiled in 2009 as the EVO 3 A1, and this year the Czech gunmaker introduced a semi-automatic pistol version of that selective-fire carbine—the EVO 3 S1. Featuring simple blowback operation and chambered for the prevalent 9 mm Luger cartridge, the pistol is essentially identical to its rifle brother, just without the buttstock and the capacity for fully-automatic fire.

Constructed of polymer and steel, the S1 has an overall length of just over 16” and weighs roughly 5 lbs. The gun features numerous Picatinny rail sections for the installation of optics and accessories, bilateral safety selectors and magazine releases and a non-reciprocating charging handle that can be installed on either side of the pistol. Watch the video hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young to learn more about the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 pistol. For more, visit cz-usa.com.
