The CZ Scorpion 3 is a classic sub gun.

CZ-USA has redesigned their Scorpion EVO 3 S2 series pistols to a new standard that logically should be called the Scorpion IV but instead is just the Scorpion 3 Plus (stylized as the easy “3+”).

What changed? The new CZ has improved ergonomics, an AR-ish magazine release, and a polymer forend that has M-LOK slots.

The unwelcome news is that it is $1,300 and uses new, proprietary, magazines.

Yup, instead of setting up the gun to use the same mags as their other pistols such as the CZ75 or P-01, or, heck, even the now “old” Scorpion EVO 3, CZ decided to design all new mags.

Whomp, whomp.
