I have the gun, now the work/fun starts getting it where I want it to be.
Mine didn't come with a brace like I've seen earlier versions on video reviews. Don't know if its just a model number option or something they changed
Here is my short list of must haves so far:

  • Optic.. I'm leaning to the Sig Romeo 5 or the Vortex SPARC, but I really want to keep the cowitness abilty
  • Brace- I have a HB folding brace on order
  • Right side safety, it sticks out and can be uncomfortable on your index finger, so I think I will end up modifying it somehow or replacing it
  • Trigger.. I have a reduced spring kit on order from HB.. I will start there.
  • Grip...alot of people replace the grip to reduce the amount of angle.. I'm going to shoot mine a bit first and see for myself before making a decision.
What have you guy's who have one done to yours or any information from owners would be appreciated

Items that I have added/upgraded include:
Magpul grip
Magpul (MP5 style) Enhanced magazine release
Magpul AFG....because it's a pistol
Sig Romeo5
Gear Head Works Reverse Safety on the ride side....MUST HAVE!!!
SBT CZPDW brace
Streamlight HL-1 on the left side
I have an early model so it still has the funky 18:1 thread so I had to get an adapter to run 1/2x28 accessories.
Lastly, the PSA AK-V/CZ Scorpion 35rd mags have been 100% and are still cheap ($13, when on sale).
ETA: Maglula makes a mag loader for Scorpion mags....makes topping off those 35rd mags and 50rd drums a lot faster/easier.

Thanks for the info on what safety switch works. I like that idea
Just got that and an Apex grip

I like the reverse safety a lot. I prefer to use it over the OEM switch on the other side. I tried out the Apex handgrip but I found the Magpul to be more comfortable. I also wasn't a big fan of the skateboard tape the Apex comes with. I'd would highly recommend the magpul enhanced release. It makes for easier mag changes. Either way, congrats on your Scorpion. Mine has been 100%.

Here's mine, an EVO 3 S2 Micro pistol, the first gen with the telescoping SB Tactical brace (latest ones have the folding brace). I removed the "faux" Osprey "suppressor" that came with it and installed a Silencerco 3-lug muzzle adapter. Also the following mods-

- Yetiworks grip
- HBI DELTA trigger and spring kit
- HBI Prostock charging handle (larger than stock)
- HBI Mini AK Safety levers
- HBI Duckbill mag release (paddle release)

Also a bunch of Palmetto State Armory 35 rd mags when they were on sale ($13 ea) and a few of the Magpul 30 rd ones.
Great gun, really fun to shoot, and plenty accurate with iron sights. Enjoy yours.

^^^^^^^^^^

This is number one priority right now. The PSA ones have not been in stock for awhile, but the Magpul ones are available for a little more money, and they are good and reliable.

I completed this one just before COVID kicked off. The list of upgrades are below but I would highly recommend the Magpul or YetiWorks grip over the Apex.

Magpul Grip
Magpul Mag release
HB trigger spring kit
HB Flat faced trigger
SB Tactical Brace
HB Extended Charging handle
HoloSun Red Dot
Safety delete kit from HB (I’d recommend the AK style safety over this)

And yes, lots of mags. Big Daddy Unlimited has them at good prices.
