strike industries CZ scorpion EVO mag release

In this accessory guide, we gonna take a look at the best CZ Scorpion EVO 3 magazine release levers that are 10X better than the factory stock.

Why upgrade?

The default latch style magazine release works and it's reliable, but it has bad ergonomics and geometry for these reasons:

  • Hard to reachable for short index finger shooters
  • No beer can grip
  • Can't do tactical reload 
  • Requires 2 hands to release the mag sometimes

These are inexpensive upgrades, and all you need is some roll pin punch to install them.

Let's check them out...

These aftermarket magazine release paddles allow the shooter to:

  • One handed mag release possible
  • Easier L or V shape tactical reload

  • Made with high strength polymer
  • Extended paddle for beer can style mag grip
