Mighty fine piece of equipment you have there MRC.

Eagerly awaiting a range report.  Hopefully you will be as giddy as Larry Vickers was in that video.



.

I put Vicker's video up because he explains the pistol design and features the best.

One thing I noticed is he did not show himself shooting any targets which is odd for a Vicker's video.

It makes me wonder how well he shoots it?

Update on the new Alien Creator:

It pretty much looks like the same gun with a new name to me.

Laugo knows how to market their product for the biggest return.

It appears that the MSRP went up about 20 percent, if I recall correctly.

They started out at $5K but jumped the price last spring to about $6K.

One thing that they did was announce when new shipments were coming into the United States to all the first time purchasers ahead of the shipment.  I ended up buying  5 of them and kept one full kit and sold the other four on GB at three different times.  I ended up clearing $10,700.00 on the 4 pistols so I'm a big Alien fan.

The big rush to buy is now over it as there are plenty for sale at MSRP.

I see that the Laugo Alien has made it's way into a Ukrainian Elite Military Unit.

This sidearm always intrigued me.  Very interesting design.

They really are a very good pistol.

They are the fastest and flatest shooting pistol made.  Combine that with an extremely good trigger and bullseye accuracy, you get a winner.

i'm surprised  we haven't seen one in a movie yet.

John Wick could have used one, only if Taran Butler's daughters were not such great, ummmm..... salespeople. :o

I see that Laugo Arms USA is taking orders now for their new Alien-Creator. 

MSRP is $7K for the initial Special Edition run of 500 with previous Alien owners getting a $500 discount.

The "guts" of the gun are the same.  The grip angle is different and is much like a 1911 instead of a Glock.  The grip panels are interchangeable to suit the shooter's hand.  The top strap is vented to aid barrel cooling and the magazine base plates have been changed to make them better fit existing shooting belt magazine carriers.
