  • Paul Howe Tactical Carbine

    The hand-applied Camouflage Armor-Tuff finish has been developed to blend in well in many urban and rural environments, reduces the IR signature, and also keeps the rifle cooler in high temperatures. The Paul Howe 6.5mm Creedmoor base is our billet WC-10 large-format AR receiver set that will hold up to a lifetime of hard use. This precision rifle wears our match-grade, precision chambered stainless steel 16" barrel with deep lightening flutes and comes standard with our Accu-Tac flash hider. This barrel profile maintains an optimized size and weight profile without sacrificing accuracy or 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 along with his CSAT rear aperture flip-up for fast, reliable combat sighting. The Paul Howe 6.5mm Creedmoor can be ordered as a solo rifle, or as a complete package kitted with Paul's preferred Leupold optic, Wilson Combat lightweight scope mount, and Vickers sling.

    Lightweight and compact with match-grade accuracy, the Paul Howe 6.5mm Creedmoor has all the features needed for outstanding overall performance.
