CZ Skorpion Discontinued

It looks like the CZ VZ61 Skorpion pistol has been discontinued.  I’m not sure when this was announced, but the semi-auto version of the famous submachine gun was discontinued from the CZ line earlier this year.

The US market Skorpion was chambered for the .32 ACP, and to qualify as a handgun (as opposed to the “short barrel rifle” designation), it did not come with a folding stock.  The original Skorpion was developed more than 50 years ago, and it is a bit sad to see the US-version fall from the catalog.

The VZ61 Skorpion can still be had (for now), but stocks are sure to dwindle.
