Last night I ordered a 5lb pistol.

I pullled the trigger and ordered one... and a bunch of parts too - trigger, trigger springs, accessories, etc.

5lb pistol = CZ Scorpion Evo S1

Picture 1 is how it looks from the factory. Picture 2 is not too far off how it will look a week after it finds its way to my house

Do some curls, bulk up those forearms!

For some reason it looks better in the FDE color?

...hey, "he who hesitates is lost" :-)
Will be watching for the range report.

On a side note, In a conversation with CZ USA the smith mentioned although SAMI ammo is generally fine in a CZ they are built using a European standard. I can't recall the name but I guess it's a hair different? Any NATO ammo or S&B stuff conforms to the standard.

I am quite fond of the FDE. It was not easy to find one in stock anywhere either... at least not at a price I felt lube free with.

I don't plan on holding it as a pistol... the arm brace that you see in the 2nd picture is the same one I'll be putting on... but will really just be used as a cheek rest. And if I can shoulder the brace, great. I just don't want to get a Tax Stamp for it, hence the brace vs true stock (therefore it is technically still classified as a pistol). So it'll act like an SBR but won't formally be one. So no curls necessary

Ammo … you're going to want lots of ammo. Federal still has their rebate deal going on … until April I think. I've been shopping hard for ammo deals since before Christmas and have lots of rebate checks coming my way. Best deal so far was, 1000 rds ..$140.00 ...taxes, shipping, everything, delivered to my door. I bought two.

Guns like yours and my TAVOR tend to encourage mag dumps … trying to make steel plates sound like those old fire alarms from high school.

It might have been your damn TAVOR that got me looking for one of these.

Can you post a link of the $140/1000 you found OR shoot me a PM. Yes, I need to pick a bit up
