Laugo Arms Alien 9mm
Laugo Arms is based out of the Czech Republic having got its start as a firearms design firm, notably responsible for the design of the CZ Scorpion EVO. Tired of seeing the lack of industry innovation they started independent production with the Alien Pistol.
The Alien pistol is a revolutionary new pistol encompassing multiple design innovations, the single greatest engineering milestone in pistol design since the M1911. It all starts with the barrel –it is fixed in position providing superior accuracy without moving parts. It is located on the bottom of the frame, so low in fact that it has the single lowest bore axis of any pistol in the world. In order to achieve this record-breaking low bore axis, the pistol is gas blowback operated, with the gas piston located above rather than below the barrel. The top of the pistol has a fixed top rail. This aides in sight acquisition as it is not a moving part. The top rail is also modular and quickly interchangeable for other rails with different sighting systems, such as with a red dot or target iron sights. The added benefit to having a fixed top rail is that the slide is now smaller and has less recoiling mass, further reducing transferred recoil impulses. Due to the barrel being so low the breach face is also lowered, providing for a lower than normal center of gravity. The frame is steel with the entire grip housing being interchangeable. The grip housing is alloy but polymer and steel housings will be available in the future as optional accessories.
Combining all of these design features results in a pistol that shoots with negligible felt recoil, little to no muzzle flip and a rapid cyclic rate. It is a true game-changer and unlike anything else on the market.
With such extensive innovations it could be easy to overlook the quality of manufacture. These are not mass-produced handguns but instead each pistol is carefully hand-fitted by a master gunsmith and made from only the finest materials with best coatings available. They are produced to the finest tolerances with high levels of engineering and attention to detail, unmatched by most manufacturers.
