Q: Is it legal to remove the orange tip from my airsoft gun?
A: This is totally dependent on local laws and restrictions. Please check with the proper authorities if you are uncertain. For importation and sales for retail we are required to have the gun sold with an orange tip. Please practice safety and responsibility by treating your airsoft gun as if it were real, orange tip or not.
About the Gun - Scorpion EVO 3 A1 series
The Scorpion EVO is a 9mm submachinegun that has been around for a few years and is made by CZ and made popular recently in video games and movies. Its most distinguishing feature is its futuristic looks. With an entirely polymer chassis, this light and compact SMG is surprisingly intuitive and has a host of features built in. This gun is completely ambidextrous as well.
Action Sport Games (ASG) works closely with CZ under license to bring us the Scorpion EVOs for airsoft. This lineup of guns is a radical design compared to many guns out in the market right now. It was designed from the ground up to replicate many features found on expensive high end guns such as PTWs and serves as the flagship model for ASG.
The airsoft Scorpion from ASG has innovative features such as being completely ambidextrous, having an integrated MOSFET that provides single, 3-round, and full auto fire modes, empty magazine detection, low voltage detection, functional bolt catch and more.
We recommend the use of a 11.1v stick Lipo battery for the best performance. The 11.1v is a tight fit though we can help you with that if you have questions. The compact body of the Scorpions will not lend itself to fit any other type of battery. Due to the advance feature set and requirement of Lipo batteries to run, this gun is recommended for expert users only.
As of this writing, ASG offers four variants of the EVO for airsoft:
- Scorpion EVO 3 A1 - AEG, submachinegun size
- Scorpion EVO 3 A1 Carbine - AEG, carbine length barrel and handguard
- Scorpion EVO 3 BET Carbine - AEG, carbine length barrel and handguard, integral mock suppressor
- Scorpion EVO 3 A1 HPA edition - HPA, engine developed by Wolverine
Note for the HPA version: HPA stands for high pressured air and is a new system in airsoft application that relies on the use of air tanks not too diferent from paintball. The gun is designed especially for this application and requires air and a small Lipo battery to run the electronics. Every function of this gun in the HPA version is the same as the AEG version. HPA works by activating a solenoid inside the gun with the pull of the trigger. The solenoid shoots a burst of air into the barrel to fire the gun and it draws the air from a hose connected to the gun. The tanks can vary in size depending on what you want to use but you will want to use an SLP (low pressure tank) for airsoft. The advantage to this system is the quick response time and lack of moving parts to break down or wear over time. Your biggest enemy in HPA will be leaks though performance stumbles in the lowest of temperatures. When running properly, HPA guns work well and are pretty simple when you look at them. The biggest barrier would be the higher cost of the gun/engine overall as well as the continuing cost to keep using it (tank refills).
