Words cannot begin to describe the wow factor of this piece of firearm. I know, firearm is a controversial topic, but we are not going to go there. Lets just take a moment to appreciate how this Czech Republic small arms manufacturer re-invented pistol with the Laugo Arms Alien Pistol.
Billed as having the lowest bore axis in the world, the Alien completely rethink how a pistol should be. It basically what you knew locking mechanisms and normal trigger mechanism out of the window to result in a low center of gravity shooter.
The bore axis is 1.7 mm under the axis of the shooters grip, thus resulting in minimal muzzle elevation and an almost flat recoil angle while fixed barrel to the frame enable exceptional accuracy by virtue of the barrel not moving during the fire cycle. And then there’s the gas delayed blowback system that affords maximum recoil control which translates to controllability during rapid firing.
A few other notables include adjustable iron sights, ambidextrous magazine release, exchangeable back straps, exchangeable grips, and MIL-STD-1913 rail. TBH, to fully appreciate the design ingenuity, we suggest you watch a video by Vickers Tactical.
For those in regions that are allow to own firearms, you can be the first to own the Alien by picking up the Laugo Arms Alien Pistol Single Batch Edition. But it will cost you. Expect to shell out a cool 5 grand for it.
For the princely sum, you get a signed and numbered Alien that comes with a specially designed textile range bag (or a custom hard case for U.S. market, I believe), 2 different upper slide rails (one iron sights and one red dot), Kydex holster with HEART6 quick release hinge, three magazines, Magwell, and cleaning kit.
