FWIW I already moved one thread about this to the Skorpion forum. Is this different to the  VZ 61?

I can't get excited about a range toy of dubious utility.

Even the Skorpion with the regular stock will not be interesting.  Pistol caliber carbines are so 90s......

Now a semi auto Bren rifle for less than $1500, yeah, you got my attention.

Looks like a loot of fun if you were to file for the stamp and make it an SBR.

Yes, sir. About a half-century in design and manufacture difference but using the mostly similar model name. The "EVO" is certainly not a Curio and Relic like the Vz61. Might need to be classified separately under Pistol Club (along with the CZ 805 Bren) but then, if and when the carbine versions arrive, will they need a Long Arms club too? ;-)

This is the first of the new generation of pistol/carbines, and the first real carbine CZ-USA has ever imported for civilian use, not including the brief flirtation with the SA vz-58 via CzechpointUSA. It's pretty groundbreaking in that they bucked the system by getting something very non-PC approved during the depth of the current Administration for importation. It alos can lead to speculation as in, is CZ-UB going to move more into the semi-auto rifle field, and where could this go?  I'm imaging a BREN 805 in 6.5 Grendel right now....so yeah, it's a little bigger than just another Skorpion. Like the video says - the only similarity is the name. Now if they'd just bring it in, in a REAL caliber, like 10mm..... :o 8)

We could just change the name of the forum from VZ 61 to 'Skorpion'

It'd still be under the C&R category, which doesn't apply for the new Scorpion.

I'd suggest a new category under the 'Pistol Clubs.'

The only similarity is the name, Skorpion. The old .32ACP vz-61 is a C&R pistol imported by CzechpointUSA, while the EVO is an all new high tech piece of hardware from CZ-UB.  8)

We have enough categories now. We only recently pruned them down. Perhaps it could go with the VZ58 or something.

Trust CZUB/CZUSA to make our lives more complicated and wallets lighter. You guys will figure it out :)

A BREN section in Rifles with an EVO subsection might work nice, if my wish comes true. :)

My first thought too.  With the relatively low price for under 1k you could have a neat little weapon.  Wonder if the stock could be imported if you obtained the stamp?   Aimpoint t1, Surefire light, 30 rounds of 147g HST would be a great indoor combo.

Doesn't seem right to lump a brand new piece of pistol technology in with a cold war era rifle, or with any rifle, for the sake of housekeeping. :-\
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.
