JWangster should have the short bit and extra screws.

Thanks fight club, out of curiosity have a lot of you guys chosen to just snap that little bolt and put a new one in?  I’d rather do it the right way and drill it out since it’s less destructive but if it doesn’t work out or something happens I’d like to know I’ve got this fallback JIC

Originally, you had to drill out the screw from inside the trigger pack. That was a pain. HBi provided a bit that works much better from the trigger guard. You just run it through the hole in the bottom of the trigger guard that lines up with the screw head. It goes right through the hex end of the screw, and basically drills out the screw body. Sounds scary, but it's just the right size for a clean job. A new screw comes with the bit too. I ended up with a 3rd Scorpion (2nd pistol), so I may take photos when I do the next one. But JWangster should comment on his experience too. I find it's helpful to hear from total novices to old pros.

So this was my third scorpion that I tried to drill out. I’m not sure why, but the weld seemed much harder than the ones previously. Eventually I gave up trying the old way and went from inside the trigger guard. Unfortunately, the pay it forward bit broke at that point before the screw would pop free. I’ve ordered a replacement bit that I can send out to whomever needs it, but at this point I’ve gone to the replacement trigger pack that CZ sent me and modified my mags to ensure they drop-free.

It seems as though this thread (and the need for a bit) is winding down. As a July 2016 beneficiary of HBi's kindness I wanted to thank them again AND tip the hat to all the members of this forum who have shown a tremendous amount of faith, commitment and trust in each other throughout this process. Kudos to all.

Apologies for the tardiness, it’s been a couple months and I had to track down where I stashed the goods.  Anyway found them tonight and will be mailed in the A.M.
