Lone Wolf Distributors, responding to the growing popularity of pistol-caliber carbines (PCCs), has introduced a .45 ACP version of the company's innovative AlphaWolf PCC, previously available only in 9 mm. The AlphaWolf uses a short-stroke gas piston system for clean operation and a gentle, highly controllable recoil impulse, with an easy to access side-mounted charging handle. The result is a flat-shooting PCC delivering quick follow-up shots, equally suitable for home defense or competition use.
The AlphaWolf PCC accepts both Glock factory magazines and high-quality aftermarket magazines. Lone Wolf says the new .45ACP carbine has been tested extensively with the popular ETS and KRISS magazines. Because the AlphaWolf is a purpose-built PCC, the magazine well is perfectly sized and chamfered for pistol magazines, avoiding the awkward appearance of a slender pistol magazine projecting from a rifle-size AR magwell.
The lightweight, quick-handling carbine comes factory equipped with a barrel-length, lightweight aluminum M-Lok handguard. The AlphaWolf has continuous Picatinny rail extending from the receiver to the end of the handguard, making it easy to quickly mount a red-dot optic, or maximize the sight radius for traditional iron sights by pushing the front sight out nearly to the end of the barrel. The M-Lok slots make it easy to attach light mounts, grip panels, vertical or angled grips and bipod adapters.
The AlphaWolf PCC is directly compatible with some of the most common upgrade options for AR-type rifles. The trigger group is easily replaced with aftermarket parts, including the Geissele triggers popular with competition shooters, and the buttstock is mounted on a standard AR buffer tube for a plethora of upgrade options.
The AlphaWolf PCC retails for $1174.95 and is available in both conventional and restricted-state configurations, making it an attractive option for shooters everywhere.
