“Were I to have the choice of only one gun, this is the gun it would be. I could do short, intermediate and long range work with this one rifle. It is like have one golf club to play the entire course.”

Paul Howe Tactical Carbine
Paul Howe Tactical Carbine

The Paul Howe Tactical Carbine combines the unsurpassed build quality and attention to detail of the gunsmiths and designers at Wilson Combat and the 30 years of tactical experience that Retired Sergeant Major Paul Howe has learned as an operator and trainer in selecting his ultimate all-around tactical rifle.

The first thing you will notice is our striking new Camouflage Armor-Tuff finish. This special finish has been developed to blend in well in many urban and rural environments. This exclusive hand-applied pattern reduces IR signature and also keeps the rifle cooler in high temperatures.

The Paul Howe Tactical Carbine uses our peerless, match grade, 5.56 chambered stainless steel 14.7″ barrel with deep lightening flutes and a permanently attached Accu-Tac flash hider. This barrel meets the 16″ minimum barrel length requirement for legal rifle ownership, yet maintains a handy, optimized size and weight profile without sacrificing any reliability. The carbine also includes our 10.4″ T.R.I.M. modular rail.

A Two stage Wilson Combat TTU with heavier springs for a 4.5 pound trigger release-an ideal weight for gloved use in an operational environment is standard. Paul selected a Daniel Defense fixed front sight tower to be used along with his CSAT rear aperture flip up rear for fast, reliable combat sighting.

The Paul Howe Tactical carbine can be ordered only in 5.56 NATO caliber as a basic rifle or as a complete package kitted with Paul’s preferred optic, mount and sling.
