After 4 years of waiting the EVO 3 S1 has been approved as a restricted firearm
Yet another great announcement of a long-awaited firearm being approved in Canada.
The CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 has been given its FRT and is classified as a restricted firearm. Much like the SIG MPX that was approved last week, there are both pistol-calibre carbine and pistol variants that are restricted by barrel length and by the virtue of being a pistol, respectively.
Still like the MPX, the EVO is chambered in 9mm however this is where the similarities end. The EVO uses a blowback design and sports a folding, adjustable stock (or no stock at all, in the case of the pistol version) along with multiple Picatinny rails for all your tacticool needs.
According to Wolverine Supplies, who confirmed the approval on CanadianGunNutz.com, the semi-automatic version, the S1, was produced almost entirely due to their efforts to have the firearm sold on the Canadian market.
“It is because of our efforts that CZ agreed to design a dedicated semi auto Scorpion” wrote John Hipwell, the owner of Wolverine Supplies. “It is because of our efforts that CZ agreed to design a dedicated semi auto Scorpion.”
After the firearm was released to the US market it became an instant hit as has been given great reviews by popular YouTubers and bloggers alike.
According to Mr. Hipwell, Wolverine Supplies have placed an order for 350 pieces of the first 1,000 of their initial order and expect a May delivery, along with a retail price of $1,150 CAD.
Needless to say, we’re excited for this one.
