The Vz. 61 Skorpion has a very distinctive look, with it's folding stock laying on top, instead of folding to the side or the bottom. It's ejection port is on the top of the weapon, making it somewhat difficult to aim down the sights while shooting. The bolt locks itself back after the last round has been fired, almost like a semi-automatic magazine-fed pistol. To reload the weapon, the proper procedure is to check that there are no jams by visually inspecting the ejection port, removing the empty magazine, inserting fresh magazine, shortly pulling back on the charging handle and letting it go. The weapon features small blade sights, but aftermarket optic mounts are available. There is also a fire selector directly on top of the pistol grip. The Skorpion is excellent for concealed carry missions, with a weight and size similar to that of a pistol, but having features that ultimately define it a submachine gun.
