Wilson Combat has released a brand new rifle built and designed in collaboration with renowned author and tactical shooting expert Paul Howe.

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

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 the 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 a 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.

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.

Paul Howe is a high-risk training instructor that served 20 years in the US Army, ten of those in Special Operations. He served as a Tactical Team Leader in multiple combat operations and Senior firearms Instructor while assigned to a tier-one unit of US Army Special Operations. During his service and since his retirement he has become one of the most sought after experts on close quarters combat and law enforcement/military small arms weapons and tactics in the world.
