Best CZ Scorpion Upgrades [Unleashing The Venom]

The CZ Scorpion is a pistol caliber carbine submachine gun. For general use, the Scorpion Evo 3 has been a really good choice for a little over a decade now. The demand for a custom CZ Scorpion is at an all-time high now. That’s why you will see a lot of modders selling their guns for a good amount of profit.

But if you are not willing to order a CZ Scorpion custom from somewhere and want to try your own hands at modding, then welcome. I hope you have a good amount of time on your hands because this is gonna take a while.

Without further ado, let’s find out the best CZ Scorpion upgrades and what order you should follow.

CZ Scorpion Stock Upgrade

Whenever you speak of a CZ Scorpion upgrade, the first thing that comes to mind is a new stock. While you can use the gun without a stock like a regular handgun, a simple brace upgrade will enhance the shooting experience. It will make your gun more stable and will also give you the freedom to use the gun with one hand.

As there are too many pistol braces available on the market nowadays, it’s kind of hard to call one of them “the best pistol brace ever”. Well, let’s see what pistol braces can be considered good.

1. F5 MFG Modular Stock System w/CZ Scorpion Adapter

F5 MFG Modular Stock System

If you are looking for one of the best folding braces for Scorpion, this one should be your top priority. This modular stock system comes with an adapter that you can install on your CZ scorpion.

The adapter is made out of 6061 aluminum through CNC machining. The machining and color finish on this looks flawless. The synthetic and metal mixture of the brace looks and feels incredible as well.

While the brace won’t magically reduce your recoil, it will certainly make it easier for you to handle that recoil. On top of that, the design of this stock is inspired by rifles. Keep in mind with upgrades like this your Scorpion can be considered a short-barrel rifle.

2. SBTEvo G2 Pistol Stabilizing Brace

SBT EVO-G2 Pistol Stabilizing Brace

I know most of you guys already saw this coming. I mean, SB Tactical is one of the best if not the best pistol brace makers on the market. While it’s not a custom-designed CNC machined aluminum pistol brace, it’s made to last similarly to those. The weight of this brace is 12.4 oz.

Unlike the F5 MFG, this one is not modular. The adapter is built to the brace itself. You can just plug it in secure it with your scorpion and start to play around. As it’s made for a pistol caliber, SB Tactical didn’t forget to add a strap to make it usable with one hand.

The stock is also foldable and available in multiple colors. If you are an owner of a custom-printed CZ Scorpion, then you might find the color option of this brace more viable for your gun. Overall, it’s easily one of the best CZ Scorpion stocks on the market. It’s made for comfort and durability and it does that very well.

CZ Scorpion Trigger Upgrade

The next upgrade in your priority list should be the trigger. I’m not saying the stock trigger is bad. But the stock trigger creep might not be up to everyone’s taste. To have a better and more uniform shooting experience, you should upgrade the trigger of the Scorpion.

1. Timney Triggers CZ Scorpion Drop-In Trigger

Timney Triggers CZ Scorpion Drop In Trigger

When it comes to making top-of-the-line triggers for weapons, Timney Triggers is one of the OGs. Existing for over half a century, their vast experience and hunger to do better made them a formidable foe in the business. This drop-in trigger from them for the Scorpion is an easy option for anyone looking to upgrade their Scorpion trigger.

The trigger is made out of steel, the trigger is available in two different styles. One with a straight trigger and the other with a curved trigger. It’s up to you to choose the style that plays well with your fingers.

The pull for the trigger is adjustable. As you can guess already, stock triggers tend to come with a fixed trigger pull and you are stuck with that. If you use this trigger, you can either set it up for 3-3.5 lbs or 5-5.5 lbs. And you can change that anytime you want. Having the freedom to choose your trigger pull adds immersion to the shooting experience.

2. Franklin Armory BFSIII CZ-C1 Trigger

Franklin Armory BFSIII CZ-C1 Trigger

The Franklin Armory 3 position trigger for CZ Scorpion is not cheap. It’s one of the most expensive triggers for this gun. But the build material and the natural feeling while pressing the trigger make it such an appealing option for all CZ Scorpion EVO 3 owners.

This trigger is a great option for both casual and competitive shooters. With 3 given stages, you will never misfire again. Position 1 of this trigger is safe, the 2nd position is semi. While using the 2nd position, you can fire one round per pull. The final stage, it’s a binary mode. It will fire one shot at pull and another while releasing.

As this is designed based on rifle triggers, the stability, and durability got top priority alongside the trigger experience. If you are willing to spend this much on a trigger, then this is more than worth it. The shooting experience through this trigger is priceless. I can safely say you will find your money well spent.

CZ Scorpion Optics

I’m sure you are well aware of the maximum feat this little gun can pull. And even if you are just using it for competition or range shooting, you will benefit a lot from an optic. The iron sight of the gun will take you only so far.

The CZ Scorpion is not picky when it comes to optics. Red dot? It works. Holographic? Got you covered mate. Scops? Strange choice, but works. Let’s see what I put up together.

1. Trijicon MRO HD 1x25mm Red Dot Sight

Trijicon MRO HD 1x25mm Red Dot Sight

It will be hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of Trijicon as a brand yet. Their ACOG scopes are a military favorite and those scopes carved their way into the consumer field as well. Unlike the ACOG, MRO HD is a rather relatively compact, lightweight, and completely different type of optic.

The only things that they share are, build quality and fixed magnification. The MRO HD is made out of high-quality aluminum. The aluminum is lightweight and extremely durable. The lens is made out of fully multi-coated glass. It’s extremely clear and sports a 2 MOA red dot with a 68 MOA ring around it. Yes, it’s illuminated.

The optic is also waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof at the same time. Making it an extremely competitive choice for outdoor marksmen. Paired up with the Geissele Super Precision MRO Mount, you got yourself an end-game setup.

2. EOTECH EXPS3 Holographic Weapon Sight

EOTECH EXPS3 Holographic Weapon Sight

How can we forget about this? All 3 holographic fans won’t forgive me if I were to forget about this. Jokes aside, it’s not uncommon to use a holographic sight instead of a red dot with pistol calibers.

The EXPS3 is one of the best consumer holographic sights available on the market. This made-in-USA item is used by the Marines as well. The lens on this is made out of glass and it’s durable. On top of that it has an anti-reflective coating and all sorts of other coatings to preserve the lens.

If somehow your lens gets a crack, you can keep using this holographic sight. The reticle on this one is illuminated as well. With proper tactile buttons, the adjustment of this optic is super easy.

3. Aimpoint Micro T-2 Red Dot Reflex Sight

Aimpoint Micro T-2 Red Dot Reflex Sight

If you are finding those other two optics a bit too much or just don’t want a holographic-style crosshair, then the T2 from Aimpoint is the next best option. This tiny red dot has made a name for itself in the community for being extremely sturdy and supporting a ton of guns.

The T2 is made out of extremely durable aluminum. It’s lightweight as well. The lens is fully multi-coated. The T2 features a 2 MOA illuminated reticle. The illumination intensity is adjustable through the buttons on the side of the optic.

Another key selling point of this sight is the compatibility with night vision accessories. Yes, you can use TRYBE and ATN PVS14 with this if you want to. Both of them are compatible and you can use a Geissele T2 mount with this to install and adjust the height on your Scorpion.

CZ Scorpion Handguard Upgrade

When it comes to holding the gun comfortably, nothing beats a good old-fashioned handguard with newer technology. And if you are someone who shoots a lot during the night and looking to add further accessories to the gun, then having a handguard is kind of a must-buy in your case.

1. Midwest Industries MLOK Handguard

Midwest Industries MLOK Handguard

MLOK technology is fascinating. How easily an accessory fits on the gun and you can take it off without tools as well. All of those things without hindering the stability of the weapon and the accessory!

This handguard from Midwest Industries is a perfect choice for you if you want to add MLOK accessories under the barrel. This handguard is made out of 6061 aluminum. Yes, the same type of aluminum you usually see in scopes. It’s light and you can guess how durable it is.

CZ Scorpion Pistol Grip Upgrade

Adding a pistol grip on a pistol carbine is not a new thing. As you are already used to gripping handguns, it makes you feel like right at home. The stock grip of Scorpion is more than fine in my opinion. But hey, we are not here to stay “just fine” we are here to do upgrades. So, what’s a good option for a pistol grip, you ask?

1. Magpul CZ Scorpion Pistol Grip

Magpul Industries CZ Scorpion EVO 3 Grip

Ask and shall receive. Magpul grips are not a new face in the crowd. Their pistol grips are absolutely fantastic and they have a really good feel to them as well. Most importantly, this grip offers a grippy texture without being sticky.

If you are someone who uses gloves often, you won’t have any issue gripping this at all. The slight angle like a handgun that you hold on to makes it an ergonomic choice as well. Without hurting your wrist and developing tendonitis, you can use the gun for longer sessions.

Some Minor Upgrades That You Might Want To Consider

While these upgrades are not mandatory, like I said, they are good upgrades. There are other CZ Scorpion EVO 3 upgrades that I might have missed, but these are the ones that I have on the tip of my tongue.


For this to work, you must upgrade the handguard. Otherwise, you will have a hard time fitting the light and gripping the gun with proper force. As for the flashlight itself, Streamlight ProTac HL with AIM Sports Inc Modular M-LOK 45deg Offset Mount is a killer combo for you.

CZ Scorpion Magazine

The magazine is a very important part of a gun. In fact, I think you should consider this as a major upgrade instead. Implying magazine increment in your gun is legally allowed in the state you live in. ETS Clear 40 RD Scorpion Mags is a great option if you are tired of the limited bullets in your stock Scorpion. Still not enough? Get multiple of these then!


While the Scorpion is not a heavy gun by any means, the added accessories might make it a bit bloated. Still not nearly enough to call it bulky or impossible to carry. Yet, I would say a sling will virtually eliminate any carrying issue that you might face in the future.

Blue Force makes fantastic slings for rifles and submachine guns. I recommend their Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Sling. It’s comfortable, lightweight, well-webbed, and will last you a long time.

How To Decide on What to Upgrade First on CZ Scorpion Evo 3?

Now that you are aware of some of the best upgrades for Scorpion Evo 3, how do you choose which one is the correct one for you and which one you can do without? Well, it’s really simple, isn’t it?

I’m talking about you here. You know yourself better than I do. Ask yourself what upgrades that you can’t live without. Is it an optic? A pistol grip? A lighter trigger? A flashlight for self-defense? Or the mag itself.

If you know the answers to those questions, you already know what upgrades are the top priority for you and what is not. Furthermore, you can upgrade based on your spending budget. Let’s be real, gun upgrading is money and time-consuming stuff. I can’t blame you if you take things slow. I think you should take it slow. Upgrade a little and then use it and upgrade some more with your new budget.


Maintaining the right order of upgrades will save you lots of headaches and money at the same time. While I can say that you need all of the mentioned upgrades, it wouldn’t be right of me. After all, you can easily live without some of them. For example, you might not need an upgraded magazine or a flashlight. While you might need the optic more than the trigger.

See, the little details add up and make the bigger picture. I hope this guide helped decide what are some of the best upgrades for CZ Scorpion and how to choose them. With that said, that’s all for now. Thanks a lot for reading. As usual, I will see you on the next one. Ciao.
