    I debated that, but decided against it (given my role for the gun). The great multitude of options that exist for the Scorpion are both a blessing and a curse. It means there is no single right way to set up the gun. You have to tailor it to your use.

    For a bedside gun, I think extending the hand guards to cover the can makes sense. You gain the option of extending your forward grip and protect yourself from a hot can. You also increase your sight radius, but that arguably isn't necessary for a bedside gun.

    For me, the Scorpion is a traveling gun. With the "stock" folded and can removed, it's a mere 16" from stem to stern. I lose the option of a more forward grip, but gain compactness. In my role, the added sight radius would be a benefit, but I'm primarily using an RMR anyway. To prevent burns, I just put a cover on it. (I went with one of the silicone covers from Bowers. It is thinner and catches on things less than other covers.)

    One modification that I've been debating is whether to add a QD device. My .300 cans are all set up with SiCo's ASR mounts. While Q maligns them, I have found them entirely satisfactory. But my Omega 9K is currently just a direct-thread. I purchased it with the intent to run it on pistols and found that I almost never actually do so. It's permanent host now is the Scorpion. One reason to add QD would be to avoid the danger of the can coming loose--but I've never actually had a problem with that, and I do a pretty good job of reaching up occasionally to twist-tighten the can when I'm running it. The primary benefit of the QD for me would be the ability to shift the 9K onto a .300 BLK. But my .300s are now set up with Omega 300s, so there isn't any real need to do that. This is a rather piddly question that probably doesn't deserve this much thought (or print space) but I keep going back and forth on which is the best plan. To QD or not to QD, that is the question. Any opinions from the tribe?

    This is basically my thoughts too and why I haven't done anything to the weapon at this point. I may change my mind later down the road when I'm more inclined to drop all the cash on a can and stamp.

    Depends.

    Generally speaking I prefer QD. Especially for a traveling gun that might need to fit in a smaller space.

    Also, after awhile the on and off with the threads is a pain in the ass, if you move it around between long guns. But sounds like that’s not an issue for you.

    QD isn’t as big a deal if it never leaves the gun, though I prefer not having to always tighten it.

    But practically, with the 9k, you may find you want to mount it on a pistol. And if it’s just shooting at the range, that’s easier with threads.

    Manticore Arms showed a prototype of their new Bullpup that actually looks like an interesting option... SBR, 8" barrel, Integrally Suppressed, 20" OAL.

    Lawdog,

    Most quick detach setups add length over a direct thread - which you probably don't want.

    HB industries has released a 5.3 inch barrel that has the HK quick disconnect lugs machined into the barrel - this would allow quick detach without added length.

    This might be the solution. I almost bought one of their 3-lug barrels a while back, but they were out of stock. This might mean a new can, though. I’ll have to look at all of the 3-lug can options.

    I finally found some of the new Pmag style CZ magazines they do appear to be more durable than the older ones.

    The magazine catch fits very tight on them however that was fixed with a few strokes from a file on the catch notches on the magazines.

    I opened up the lower part of the catch and rounded the back a little bit they pop out smooth.

    The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention that has been praised and denounced... Served Hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history.
