At First Glance: Laugo Arms Alien

At First Glance: Laugo Arms Alien

The new Laugo Arms Alien might look like it’s from another planet, but that’s just because it has so many features that are different from most other semi-automatic handguns. Different is sometimes better, though, and the Alien offers several patented and unique technical solutions to problems other pistols didn’t even know they had.

For starters, the folks at Laugo boast that the Alien has the lowest bore axis in the world, and a look at the pistol from the muzzle end makes that a hard claim to argue against. This low bore axis should reduce muzzle flip greatly when compared to Glock or other striker-fired pistols, allowing for quicker follow-up shots.

Built largely as a competition pistol, the gun is of the gas piston delayed blowback design. A very neat feature is the Alien boasts a quick-change top rail, allowing the user to switch from iron sights to an optic setup quickly and easily. The Alien also has a fixed barrel that does not move during the firing cycle, lending to increased accuracy.

If all that sounds great, be aware that putting all those features in your gun safe is going to cost a pretty penny, as the Alien carries an MSRP in the $5,000 range!
