CZ Scorpion Micro issues while suppress
« on: August 20, 2019, 09:14:09 AM »
Hi guys,

I recently got my Scorpion EVO Micro and I am pretty happy with it. Took it to the range for the first time and found and interesting issue. The gun out of the box with the "no osprey" fake suppressor works perfectly fine, not a hickup, but then when I put my SilencerCo Octane 9HD  is when the issues begins. Huge feeding issues, at the point that every 1-2 rounds I get 1 or 2 inside the receiver stuck. Remove the suppressor and put the fake one again and boom, works just fine. I have tried with factory mags and with Manticore mags as well, the issue continue with all.

Any suggestion? being waiting for the gun just to shoot it suppress 95% of the time so shoot without the suppressor is not an option, better sell it and go back to an AR9m.

Thanks in advance for any help

Are you running the booster on the can?

Booster? I'm sorry, I got the supressor about 3 months ago and I'm not very familiar with the parts. The booster is something that I buy separate? Because if it comes from factory yes, I took the supressor out of the box and put it in my guns without any alteration or install anything else.

You definitely need the fixed barrel spacer for the octane. This will slide over the piston in place of the spring looking thingy.

Top picture is the booster for pistols as it helps unlock the barrel for recoil

Bottom picture is for fixed barrels, a fixed barrel spacer.

If you use a booster with a fixed barrel it will give you feeding issues.  If you use a fixed barrel space with a browning tilt unlocking barrel you will have feeding issues.  You need to use a fixed barrel spacer with the Scorpion as said above, just wanted to add pictures as you're a suppressor newbie.....We were all there once.

Perfect, thank you very much, that explain everything. I have mine from factory with the spring (the top picture), so mean that for the scorpion (or any fixed barrel) I have to purchase a fixed barrel spacer, ahh, more stuff to buy, well, I guess I can just search it for "fixed barrel spacer"? I will start with SilencerCo to see if they have it.

The interesting part is why worked perfectly fine with my AR-9 which is a fixed barrel too?

The spring/neilson device is for when you run your suppressor on a pistol (pistol barrel moves). On a fixed barrel like your scorpion, you don't want any movement on your suppressor. Shooting your suppressor with the booster on a fixed barrel can also cause baffle strikes. Get a tri-lug adapter from SiCo and that will remove the piston and spring. Plus, its quick on/off and wont back off while shooting. If you dont want to use a tri-lug mounting system, then you can get a sleeve that replaces the spring over the piston- not as good as tri-lug.

dang it, got your reply after ordered this last night: https://silencerco.com/fixed-barrel-spacer.html

anyways, I plan to be using the Octane 9 between the Scorpion and my M&P 2.0 full size so I dont know if the tri-lug adapter comes for it.

OMG.  The price of that fixed spacer is ludicrous.   :-\

You could make one from a piece of thinwall steel tubing if you wanted to for next to nothing if you have a pipe cutter.  The trick is to cut it a little longer than the spring, and if you don't have any specialized tools (lathe or even grinder or Dremel) file a little off the end at a time until you get the length you need so the cap will screw all the way on.







As the other guys have said, all it does is lock the booster in position on a fixed barrel so it doesn't move when you shoot.

When you want to use it on a handgun that doesn't have a fixed barrel, you just remove the fixed spacer and put the spring back in.
When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.
