The first firearm collaboration between Wilson Combat and 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 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.

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.

I have a question for Paul as I know he come on here from time to time. Why the choice of the 14.7 inch barrel? I see other big name instructors like Haley and Rogers also pick this length in their signature carbines and I was wondering what the reasoning was?

Just as a guess...

Perfect to perm attach the muzzle device and meet the 16" OAL required to avoid being an NFA item. Making it easy to sell to the largest possible consumer base, while still being able to achieve the desired combination of maneuverability and accuracy.

But you lose the ability to change muzzle devices and suppress the gun.

Pretty sure they're not worried about that.
