Maybe Somebody Should've Warned Me!
« on: April 07, 2021, 07:22:40 PM »
I just picked up my Scorpion and haven't even fired it yet but I've been shopping for accessories since the moment I got it home. So far I've ordered an Elite Survival Systems case,  the ambidextrous safety delete kit,  and today a couple Magpul magazines.  Fortunately the folding brace I want is out of stock or my wallet would be even thinner.  I haven't even looked at optics yet but they're on the list.

Just don't want the better half to figure out the gun purchase was only the beginning.  ;D

HB Industries are like CZ Scorpion product pimps, they have soooo much stuff to offer, if you'll just pay the fare. Your wife/girlfriend will soon become suspicious of all the charges to HBI and will wonder whose initials they are and why you are sending "her" soooo much money.
Scorpions are kinda like "Sugar Babies" or "Trophy Wives" as they love to be showered with all kinds of nice things and upgrades.
Get magazines while you still can. Who knows what is on the horizon. Luckily there are lots of options and they are reasonably priced.
Enjoy it.

 I'm in the same boat OP!
 I bought a used Scorpion couple weeks ago. Complete impulse buy, but I figured it was a good addition to the armory. And should make nice compact EDC gun, backpacking gun, hiking gun, Grey Man gun.

 I haven't fired mine either due to time & ammo hurdles, but I've already bought a MI HG & a Magpul pistol grip ( Should be in today  :) ).  I already have a red dot, and I like the CZ Irons, so that's covered.

Stuff I still need to get:

* AMMO!!!
*  thread protector, or a Flash Hider.
* HBI trigger spring kit.
* Magpul mags.

 Backburner stuff:

 *AK style right side safety lever.
 * Paddle Mag release.

An HBI trigger spring kit is a must. Several videos on how to do it if you are a handy guy. While you have it apart to do that, it is a good time to polish surfaces that contact one another. Makes for a very smooth light trigger pull when completed. The AK style right side safety lever is a nice addition as well. I also put on a Sig Romeo 5 red dot sight. You can find them for a decent price if you shop around. Good luck with your new toy.

I bought a "used" Evo 3 S1 in like new condition. It had an SB brace on it, pulled it off and went with the factory folder / tailhook with adapter route. Much preferred. I opted for a Noveske Flaming Pig muzzle device, ahd a pile of Palmetto AkV mags. I run the Magpul grip and mag release and really like both.
On the trigger mine had the HBI spring kit installed and it work well enough. Not as nice as the CZ Custom shop trigger in my Scorpion carbine but then it wasn't a few hundred doll hairs and eight week wait either.

Best decision I have made so far was sending my trigger group to shooters element. After all said and done you will enjoy the trigger feel so much more. I was the US Army's version of a "gunsmith", and normally do all my own work, but Taylor over there has amazing customer service, very quick turnaround (I had sent mine out and got back within a week), and not only does he install the HBI trigger spring kit for you, he polishes/smooths out all the necessary parts, and he works on the safety and smooths it out as well just because without even charging anymore. Can't recommend enough.

+1 on shooter element!  Excellent communication and super quick turn around!
