This is our best CZ EVO Upgrades Guide to show case some of the best add on accessories you can get to completely transform the stock gun into a performance driven CZ Scorpion to your liking.

Whether you are debating to upgrade or not, once you try these new parts, you just can't go back.

Recommended CZ EVO Accessories To Upgrade

The CZ Scorpion EVO 3 is a highly advanced and solidly constructed 9mm CQB pistol carbine. It has become extremely popular due to its reliability, performance, and affordable price.

Nevertheless, the original factory model had several ergonomic disadvantages until third-party aftermarket parts greatly improved it.

You can now customize your CZ Scorpion with a variety of accessories, such as:

  • Stocks, grips, and forends
  • Magazines, safeties, and magazine release levers
  • Charging handles and enhanced triggers

Upgraded CZ EVO Scorpion In Action

Red dot optics

Features Holosun 510C

The red dot sight improves the speed of targeting and accuracy on a CZ Scorpion pistol caliber carbine.

We have selected a few of our favorite optics for the CZ EVO, and you can find them in the guide below.

For the best cheekweld and alignment of the sight picture, it is recommended to use a low mount optic.

Aftermarket Trigger Upgrade

The CZ EVO 3 is an excellent firearm, but the trigger pull weight from the factory is almost 9 lbs when you first get it. This heavy trigger makes it difficult to take accurate long-distance shots and quickly fire follow-up shots.

To enhance your CZ Scorpion shooting experience and achieve a much smoother trigger pull with minimal takeup and reset, upgrading the trigger should be your first priority.

If you enjoy firing multiple rounds rapidly for fun, you may be interested in the CZ EVO 3 Binary trigger by Franklin Armor BFS 3. It provides a similar experience to a full auto mode, allowing you to fire one shot and then another when you release the trigger.

Please note that the specifics of firearm laws are not discussed here. Always check your local / state law before purchasing this item.

PDW Style Pistol Grip

Grip CZ EVO upgrade

Changing the pistol on the CZ EVO is one of the best upgrades under $30. For the longest time, the steep angled pistol grip is one of the biggest complaint people have and now we have something better.

For the type of shooting most people will do with the Scorpion, a PDW style pistol grip is preferred. We recommend:

Weapon lights

Features MODLITE PLHv2

One of the essential accessories for the EVO is a high-quality compact weapon light that enables effective target identification in low-light conditions.

It is highly recommended to have a light that provides a balanced combination of throw and flood illumination. To meet these criteria, we recommend a 1000 lumen light with an output of up to 20,000 candela or more.

The Surefire M300 or the Modlite are our best options.

Adding a foregrip on any weapon platform helps the shooter with better recoil control and handling, and it's no different for the CZ EVO 3 pistol, SBR and carbine.

For the pistol version, no vertical grip can be legally attached unless the gun has been registered as a SBR.

Aluminum Handguard

The factory polymer handguard is functional, but the 922r compliant free float aluminum rail handguard offers even greater capabilities.

It allows the Scorpion to easily incorporate various MLOK accessories like QD sling mounts and grips, while also accommodating a wide range of suppressor add-ons.

Furthermore, the free float handguard enhances barrel harmonics, resulting in improved accuracy. Unlike the factory handguard, which tightly clamps the handguard in place with a barrel nut, the free float design avoids any potential reduction in accuracy.

The recommended handguards are HBI and Midwest Industries

Available in 4.25", 6.75", 11.25" and 11.5" 

Extended Magazine Release Lever

The factory CZ Scorpion EVO's magazine release lever functions well, but it necessitates the use of both hands to remove a magazine, making tactical reloads challenging due to poor factory ergonomics.

However, a larger and more accessible lever greatly facilitates the process of changing magazines, resulting in improved ease, speed, and enjoyment.

For shooters with shorter index fingers, we highly recommend the Strike Industries CZ EVO extended mag release paddle. With this accessory, shooters can release the magazine using a beer can grip or simply press down with one finger, ensuring excellent contact.

Enhanced Safety Selector

The factory CZ Scorpion EVO's safety selector works properly, but it causes discomfort to the shooter's finger because it protrudes excessively. Luckily, we offer enhanced aftermarket safety selectors from HBI, Strike Industries, and other reputable brands to address this problem.

The AK-style extended safety lever by HBI is highly recommended as the best option. It is easy to operate and provides a smooth and pleasant experience.

Enlarged Charging Handle

The factory CZ Scorpion EVO charging handle is noticeably small and feels rigid when pulled, making it difficult to firmly grip, especially for individuals with large hands or while wearing gloves. This can pose a problem when clearing jams or other malfunctions.

To address this issue, an enlarged charging handle offers a larger surface area for easier grasping and provides additional leverage to charge the bolt, particularly if the factory handle feels stiff. Additionally, it enhances the satisfying experience of the CZ EVO's "MP5 Slap" maneuver.

One of the top choices on the market is the THETA charging handle by HB Industries, constructed with T6061 T6 aluminum. It offers exceptional quality.

If you are utilizing HBI's aluminum MLOK rail system, we highly recommend opting for the polymer charging handle to prevent common issues such as metal scraping that people often encounter.
