    I am considering getting a CZ Scorpion Micro. My concern is the silly faux Osprey suppressor. Ideally, I would like to remove the faux suppressor so I can attach either a flash hider or actual suppressor (probably an Octane9). Is this feasible? According to the specs, the barrel is threaded and should accommodate accessories other than the faux suppressor, but I wanted to see if anyone had first-hand experience. Thanks!

    Wasn't that the point of the faux suppressor? As a placeholder for an actual suppressor, only so you wouldn't have to wait to get the gun until after the Form 4 was approved?

    I assume you are talking about the model that has the stock (not the braced model) that has the faux suppressor, correct?

    If so the faux suppressor would have to be pinned and/or welded to meet non-NFA requirements or it would be a faux suppressor shroud that slips over a 16"+ barrel for looks. I would assume that if it's a short barrel with faux suppressor CZ made the pin/weld in such a way that it can be drilled out and removed at the point one procures a tax stamp for an SBR or has an actual suppressor permanently mounted in place of the faux suppressor.

    Models such as the carbine with the faux suppressor are generally designed by the companies for customers who will be SBRing, thus getting around the barrel length requirements for having a stock while waiting for a tax stamp for an SBR. Or as was mentioned, one can have a NFA FFL remove the faux suppressor and permanently mount a suppressor for a "one-stamp suppressed SBR, essentially.

    In looking at the CZ site it looks like, it is a 16.2" barrel with a faux suppressor shroud. Then it's just for looks in my opinion. More than likely one can just simply spin off the the faux suppressor by hand. If you want to put a muzzle device on it, why not just get the model that comes with a brake instead of the faux suppressor?

    Factory CZ Scorpion micros come with a PDW style brace on them, so they are pistols. That means you can pull the fake can. There is some work involved though as the hand guard needs to be removed to do so. Do a bit of looking in to what that requires as it turns off Scorpion owners who are not willing to do a bit of work. Also of note, the Scoprion Micro is meant to run reflex suppressors. That's why the hand guard is so fat. It will look odd with a normal can.

    I am talking about the CZ Scorpion S2 Micro that has a 4” barrel which is made to look like it was integrally suppressed with a faux SilencerCo Osprey suppressor under the hand guard. (Yes, I know that the real SilencerCo Osprey is not an integral suppressor, but this is the style that CZ went with.)

    I am not talking about the carbine version which also has a faux suppressor variant. Below is the model I am looking to buy:

    https://cz-usa.com/product/cz-scorpion-evo-3-s2-pistol-micro-w-brace/

    I just need to know whether I can remove the stupid faux suppressor and use the threads mentioned in the product description to affix a muzzle device such as a SilencerCo Octane.

    The description says you can. 1/2x28 or 18x1.

    Yes, you can remove the fake can. Take off the hand guard, then unscrew the barrel extension from the front. everything should slide off the barrel at that point. Some cans don't fit in the hand guard though, so do some research. Or just by the CZ made can
