Question - Replacing Handguard CZ Scorpion Login/Join 
Member
posted
So, after a recent range trip my wife decided she wanted a CZ Scorpion to add to her small arsenal. Never being one to let the grass grow under my feet I did some looking around and in light of current national conditions I found one with a price that was not unacceptable to me online and it should be here in a week.

Unfortunately, the one small glitch is that it comes with the extended handguard and flash can which I intend to remove and replace after buying the smaller polymer handguard and flash hider.. I assume the flash can will simply unscrew from the muzzle? How difficult is it to remove and replace the handguard?

I’ve found a few YouTube videos but they have been for the normal handguard but based one what I have seen I might take it to a local gunsmith after I’ve tracked down the factory handguard and flash suppressor.

Assume this is a carbine since you posted in the rifle section?

Edit: After looking at the offerings I think you’re talking about the pistol version with the carbine length handguard and flash can.

I don’t know the answer, but will offer up that I have a carbine barrel nut wrench that I used to take off my carbine handguard on my rifle. If you’d like to borrow it you’re more than welcome to it for the cost of shipping there and back. Should be about $16 round trip.

I appreciate that and I may take you up on it.

Yeah, it is a pistol with the carbine length handguard & flash can plus a brace.

Yes, the can unscrews from the muzzle of the barrel. You will need the barrel nut tool. That nut holds the forearm on. Midwest Industries makes different lengths as I recall. I put one of theirs on my carbine. So much better than the factory version.

Thank you for the information. I have (after a call to CZ and a "that sounds about right" response" about the parts needed) Ordered their factory polymer pistol length handguard and a pistol barrel nut. I sent an email to my local ‘Smith to see if he had the tools to do the handguard swap and I am waiting on a response. Other then the barrel nut hand handguard (and flash suppressor) do I need anything else?

I don't actively follow the current state of the CZ barrel nut saga as I've done mine already (and it is a saga as there are a zillion reports of thread locker and heat and broken tools and trouble) but I think that tool is the carbine one and the OP has a pistol.

Here's the link on the how to do the handguard.

2 best modifications in terms of $$ are:
1) Safety delete ($13)
2) Reduced trigger spring ($9)
