Try wrapping the gun in 2 layers wax paper and putting it in the holster for a day
With the tension screw all the way loose that should stretch the holster some but not too much

Sorry for your experiance with it , first off i would say put you pistol in a couple of ziplock bags , then in the holster overnight . Second i would say that we have a fiew of the better custom leathersmiths on this board as members , try contacting one or more of them for a solution with your current holster , or a holster that will work for you .

Isn't the Scorpion a Kydex holster? I think it is. If so, a low-set blow dryer should work.

Since I discovered the "bag" method I haven't needed to use silicone spray but, it sure does slick up the inside of a holster! Might work on Kydex?

Baby powder the leather inside. It will help release the gun from the leather and side benefits it will stop squeaks.

kydex typically requires heat to re mold . Otherwise it will just return to original dimensions and shape. Liquid or powder will not affect it.
Either use a hair dryer on hi setting or low flame from a stove, just letting the heat wash over the holster w/ gun in it. do not remove the gun till the holster is cool.

Since you mentioned your size, is it possible you have the belt too tight? I've found this will hold the gun in. You might try loosing the belt a notch, and see if that helps.
I've started to use the Wilderness belt since you can control the exact fit, and not rely on the holes found in the usual belt.
Hope this helps.
