    I'm having a hard time deciding on the Pistol or Carbine version.

    Pistol would get a F1 for a SBR (sig brace for the wait)
    Carbine would get F1 integral suppressor.

    But I can't decide on the route to go, I have a 9mm can in jail, so a 3 lug adaptor would work on the Pistol.

    Pistol costs less, but after 922 crap and butt stock, it would be the same as the carbine.

    pistol sbr
    reason: you have the can...and the can is available to be used on other host

    if you integrally suppress the carbine...you're stuck with only a single host

    Pistol.

    Smaller package, ease of swapping can over to other hosts, it's the way the gun was designed to be, gives you that sub-gun feel.

    Edit:
    Did someone say pics?? :)

    I vote pistol/SBR as well. I haven't shot a carbine version, much less an integrally suppressed carbine version, but I have a Scorpion SBR. One of the coolest things about the Scorpion SBR is the short overall length with the stock folded and the 3-lug suppressor removed. It stuffs nicely into a regular backpack. You give that up with the carbine.

    Well, that's what gave me the kick to a Carbine with integral suppressor.

    I miss my m11/9 machine gun, so a pistol SBR seems to be calling me.

    I have a GA Optimus in jail, and have the 3 lug adapter for it. But I want to see pics.

    Also...

    Tan or Black? I'm leaning Tan.

    On a related note, who has the best price online for the Scorpion pistols? I've been wanting one of these for awhile.

    Also, start looking for a stock kit and get it whenever you find one. Don't wait around as they can be hard to get.

    Not sure when it the stocks will be available in FDE

    I'm waiting on this guy to get these grips completed. They're in the final stage of getting the injection molds made and expects them to be available in January. A lot of people seem to like the Yeti Works grips but I don't care for their flat shape and ugly grip patterning.

    I kick myself for not buying the one back in June I could have got for 75 cheaper than this one, but I like the FDE over tan also.

    This has been true......... Most places that get a new shipment are sold out in a few hours. CZ is still struggling to keep up with the demand.

    I got the adapter off eBay and the blade/
    buffer tube directly from KAK. I really would like a folding adapter but those are hard to find and sooooo expensive.
