    Alien Pistol from Laugo Arms

    Candice Horner
    September 27, 2018

    Ever since Laugo Arms teased us with photos of the Alien pistol, shooting enthusiasts have been yearning for more details. We’ve got specs and pictures for you that haven’t previously been shared to the U.S. market.

    At this time, Laugo still plans to introduce the Alien pistol to the U.S. in 2019, but a distributor has not been announced.

    Engineering designs of the Alien serve to mitigate muzzle flip and minimize felt-recoil. Laugo touts the Alien as having the lowest bore axis of any pistol in the world. Cycling of the gun is independent of the fixed barrel and the separate top rail. This means that during each shot, neither the barrel nor the sights move. This should lend to high accuracy and the possibility for faster follow up shots.

    The Alien operates using a delayed blowback system. Gas pressure is used to slow the movement of the slide thanks to a gas piston. Laugo claims that the more powerful the round, the slower the slide will move, and the recoil is reduced no matter how hot the ammo is.

    Shooters can easily switch between upper rails to accommodate iron sights, a red dot, or a Picatinny top rail. Options for an open division ready Alien are also available. The open division kit includes a compensator, open division upper rail, and flared magwell.

    This video shows how quickly you can exchange upper rails:


    Alien’s patented hammerless trigger system features an inverted hybrid striker that is attached to the replaceable upper rail. Housing the of the hybrid striker also allows for the low bore axis fit.

    Laugo lists the Alien pistol features as:

    Low bore axis
    Interchangeable upper rail
    Exchangeable backstraps
    Adjustable iron sights
    Ambidextrous magazine release
    Trigger safety
    Striker safety block

    Height: 5.8-inches
    Barrel length: 4.8-inches
    Weight (with empty mag): 2.47 pounds

    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".
