Main Topic: Product Review or Updates on previous reviews


Product Spotlight and Discussion:

Winchester SX4 Cantilever Buck

MSRP - $959.99


Strike Industrie Pit Viper stock

MSRP - $77.95-79.95

Must also use SI advanced receiver ext. at $47.95-49.95


Manticore arms bullpup CZ chassis

MSRP - Around $400

The Scorpion EVO Bullpup is a partnership between CZ USA and Manticore Arms..  This is a CZ USA OEM product, the CZ logo is on it (the Manticore logo is on it too) and they are going to initially launch it as a kit that you can convert your existing Scorpion EVO carbine with.  CZ USA may offer complete guns in the future, and we are also looking to a pistol “arm gun” version and some other options. Overall length is 26.5” and barrel length on the carbine is 16.25”, so this makes for a non NFA (no tax stamp gun).  Weight is 7.5 lbs, that is roughly ½ lb lighter than any other pistol caliber bullpup out there.

Conversion is easy- you simply move the components from you OEM traditional lower over to the new bullpup lower receiver, and the now lower installs very similar to the original one, you slide the buttplate on after that, mount the cheekrest/brass deflector assembly, and the included optics riser (optics riser may not be necessary depending on what mount you are using, but it is included as a “courtesy” so you are ready to go as soon as you have the kit).  The conversion is completely reversible and you can pull all the parts out and put them back in the OEM lower if you want to go back to the original configuration.

Field stripping is super simple, you simply depress the spring loaded button the back of the EVO receiver through a hole in the  buttplate (the button normally holds a stock on the gun), slap down on the buttplate to remove it from the gun, pull out the cross pin that holds the lower on (same cross pin that holds the OEM lower on) hand hinge the lower receiver off.

Launch will be 4th quarter, before the end of the year, final MSRP has not been set, but will be around $400 give or take for the conversion kit.   If you figure you can currently get a Scorpion Carbine for $900-$950 that means you can be into the lightest pistol caliber bullpup out there for around $1300-$1350.
