I know we've seen pictures of the Micro before, but I just brought this one home today. All cleaned and lubed and ready for the range tomorrow, hopefully.

                    
Congrats and enjoy! Let us know how it goes. I took mine out on Monday for the first time.

I managed to get the Micro out today. Shot about 200 rounds combined of Winchester 124 gr NATO and Blazer Brass 115 gr. The Micro ran perfectly on both. Very well satisfied with it's first outing, in fact it's already at the top of my list for fun to shoot guns. It ranks right up there with my Sig MPX and Kriss Vector. Each pistol has it's own good and bad points, but the Micro's list of bad points is pretty small. The controls on the Scorpion seem a little more "clunky" (mainly that safety switch again) to me than on the other two, but considering that the others cost a few hundred more, I'm not worried, plus I have a feeling that they will improve over time.

In fact the Micro is a lot like an AR, it's great right out of the box, but you soon realize that there are lots of minor things that you can do to improve it. In fact I don't think I've ever owned a firearm that shows so much potential, but really needs a little tweaking to make it perfect, as the Scorpion. The first and foremost is the right hand safety. It's impossible to shoot it without that safety switch rubbing a raw spot on your hand. I know some have simply ground it off, but I think I'll start researching after market replacement parts and find something better.

The trigger also leaves something to be desired. It gets the job done as is, but it is a bit gritty and the pull is too heavy. I might leave it as is and see if it gets better over time, but I might also look into a replacement for it too.

That's really about it. Nothing else on the Micro bothers me to the point that makes me want to go out and replace anything on it, except that right hand safety switch. I know there are tons of after market parts available for it, but I'm trying to hold off on that, plus it doesn't really need a whole lot to make it just about perfect.  It's a well thought out design that is a whole lot of fun to shoot, is very accurate (it's amazing how accurate a 4" barrel can be), and from what everyone seems to say, it's a very well built little gun that will last many years.  This is my first Scorpion, and I can now see that all the talk about it is true.  It's a great little gun.

Awesome. Great to hear. I had a similar experience with it. I am thinking about ordering the HBI trigger spring kit along with a solution to the right side safety selector. Aside from that, I have on back order the Magpul grip, mag release, and mag. I don't think I'd do anything else to it for a while. The gun just works and I don't want to mess with it too much.

Just finished this SBR after getting my Form 1 E- File back in 2 weeks! Personal record there. I'm still waiting on my SiCo Omega 9k suppressor and for Surefire to roll out the XLV2 light. I personally like the low profile OEM charging handle and the OEM mag release. The Black Collar trigger is excellent clean 4.5lb 2 stage pull. 

HB Industries Micro Conversion Tri-Lug
HB Industries Short Ambi Saftey selectors
Black Collar Arms Scorpitol Trigger pack (drop in)
Shooters Element Flat trigger
Pakse Pathfinder Grip
A3 Tactical "HK" VFG
Dan Haga Design ACR adapter
ACR Folding Stock
Aimpoint Micro T2
Bobro QD mount


That is awesome. Also super quick turn around on that Form 1.

No offense to Manticore Arms and their collapsing brace, but the Micro looks so much better with a folder.

I know it is my personal preference :)
