SHOT Show 2019 Guns: Lone Wolf AlphaWolf PCC in .45 ACP

posted on January 23, 2019
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 
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 

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.
