Laugo Alien Pistol 9MM
The Alien is a hammer-fired gas-delayed blowback pistol.
A gas piston channel is mounted above the barrel, in which the gas piston and recoil spring unit is placed.
The barrel is mounted very low, giving the gun a very low bore axis. The reciporcating mass is very low, and extends downward internally into the frame.
The barrel is fixed and does not move when the slide reciporcates.
The top strap is locked to the barrel (specifically a hook above the gas piston channel) instead of the slide, and also stays static when the slide reciporcates.
The hammer is mounted on the top strap and swings downwards in order to conserve space inside the gun.
The trigger releases the hammer by pressing the front half of the hammer when the hammer is cocked.
All of the unusual design traits present on the Alien are intended to minimize the effects of the recoil on the user and improve accuracy.
The gas piston slows the movement of the slide and reduces the momentum of its impact, the low bore axis reduces muzzle flip, the fixed barrel increases accuracy and the fixed sights makes follow-up shots more accurate.
The top strap/upper rail can be easily swapped to change sight options.
Comes with 2 17 round Magazines
