Laugo Arms, the Czech company best known for developing the Scorpion Evo 3 and selling the design to CZ, have announced that they will be introducing their new ALIEN 9x19mm pistol in the Spring of 2019. Laugo Arms have been teasing the ALIEN for a while now; check out Nick’s write up about the pistol from October here.
