Design detailsEdit

The Scorpion Evo 3 is a blowback operated carbine evolved from a Slovak prototype submachine gun called the Laugo.[1] Chambered in 9×19mm Parabellum, the Scorpion EVO 3 is mostly polymer making it a lightweight, compact submachine gun designed to be easily maneuvered in confined spaces. The A1 variant features a left side charging handle with the option of a right side, along with an ambidextrous select fire switch, giving the operator the choice of "safe", semi-automatic, three-round burst, or fully automatic fire, while the S1's switch only features "safe" and semi-automatic fire. The standard version comes equipped with a folding, adjustable and fully removable stock for easy transport. The hand guard is lined with multiple Picatinny rails for the addition of attachments such as grips, sights, flashlights, and lasers.[2] The hand guard on the American semi-automatic offering features M-LOK attachment points, with a single Picatinny rail on top.[3]
