Now I think the fun starts for people who were on the fence about picking one up in pistol form:

CZ Announces 922r-Compliant Skorpion Evo III SBR Kit

Česká Zbrojovka is doubling down on its earlier commitment to bringing unadulterated Skorpion EVO IIIs to the US market, with its recent announcement that they will be importing a 922r-Compliant Skorpion Evo III SBR kit. Guns.com has more:

CZ-USA has announced plans to introduce a 922r-compliant stock kit for the EVO 3 to build short-barreled rifles, or SBRs. Due to certain import restrictions, rifles may only have so many components made outside of the U.S. so the kit includes additional parts needed to build an SBR.

“Obviously, an approved Form 1 is required to convert the CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 Pistol into an SBR,” CZ-USA said. “The ATF has informed us that 922r does apply, and their official parts count for the Scorpion Pistol is 16 parts. CZ-USA is currently in the process of manufacturing a number of US-made parts which we intend to sell both individually and as part of a kit to ensure that individuals manufacturing SBRs have the means to comply with 922r.”

The stock itself is not one of the compliancy components. It is the real deal, made in the Czech Republic and is identical to the stocks on Scorpion submachine guns. This is welcome news for anyone who picked up an EVO 3 S1 pistol with the long-term intent of building a short-barreled rifle.

This means that users buying the parts individually may convert existing magazines or build an SBR usingtheir pistol brace adapter and any AR stock, including foreign-made stocks, using a carbine buffer tube. CZ-USA expects to have the parts available by late fall but will put them up for sale as soon as possible.

While the final list of American-made parts is still in the air, CZ-USA told Guns.com that they would probably include a replacement grip, trigger, disconnector, muzzle device and magazine follower and floorplate.

The CZ Skorpion Evo III is a very compact and lightweight firearm with decidedly “futuristic” looks. To the extent that I have handled them, I’ve been pretty impressed. I think it submachine guns were more relevant than they are these days, it would have been a real world-beater.

Isn't a NFA item by definition "non-sporting" and therefore doesn't *need* 922r compliant parts?

Whoops, just read the article summary....

“The ATF has informed us that 922r does apply..."

I'd just like to be able to find an evo pistol at or below msrp in stock.

I sent a note to CZ-USA about the dearth of EVO3 magazines, 20- or 30-round,because they're getting neck-bearded by speculators that don't even own, or intend to own, a Scorpion. They sent back a response that they are back-ordered over 8000 units on the pistol itself, not to mention the magazines. They are instituting a policy that people can order no more than four magazines at a time from their web-site. I suggested that they consider subcontracting magazine manufacture to Magpul or Blackdog Machine.

Getting US made mags would go halfway to the parts count requirement they say applies.

Yes, that was one of the gifts Director B. Todd Jones gave to us during his tenure. After 30 years of interpretations saying otherwise, his administration decided to "re-imagine" the law.

I hope the ******* **** gets gonorrhea of the brain.
