    Heads up for the few of us who own these pistols.

    "Caracal International LLC previously instituted a recall of Caracal Model C pistols on March 28, 2013 for batchnumbers from SC188- to SC222.

    Caracal is now issuing this recall of allModel C pistolsin all markets, following the completion of a full investigation. Caracal is initiating this voluntary recall of Model C pistols because the safety of its customers is paramount.

    This recall affects all Model C pistols, including but not limited to those with serial numbers which start with the following letters: HM, AA, AD, AG, CA, CB, CC, CD, CE, CF, CG, CH, CI, CJ, CK, CL, CM, CN, CP, CR and CS.

    If you own or have access to a Caracal Model C pistol, PLEASE DO NOT LOAD OR FIRE YOUR PISTOL. Please contact Caracal customer care immediately to arrange to have your Model C pistol returned. Caracal will provide you with a full refundof the purchase price of yourCaracal Model C pistolor vouchers for otherCaracal products. Unfortunately, the potential safety issues cannot be addressed through a repair of the Model C pistol and all Model C pistol’s must be returned for refund."

    A least you get a refund. And they have a new lineup on their website. 3 polymer models and two other new pistols.

    I may wait a while this time around.

    Considering the company is from U.A.E on the Arabian Penninsula I guess if their firearm blows up in your face, it might be perceived as a terrorist plot.

    Hmm, that's gonna hurt the company. Replacement is one thing, but issuing a refund makes me think they have no confident in their product.

    They can't replace because they are replacing the lineup.

    I think I would avoid them BIG TIME. This tells me they have no QUALITY control in their manufacturing, or their R&D just is non existent. I personally do not like dealing with third world countries in some items. It's bad enough 95% of Wal-Mart is from the Chicoms. I am even uneasy about Springfield, because they manufacture in Croatia. Bersa & Taurus from South America, I tend not to even show an interest.

    Kinda true, Taurus is made in metro Miami, FL area. Some would agree with you about that being a South American 3rd world country, but politically I think they are still a part of the US. They started making a lot of guns there that they had importation issues due to their features (or lack of).


    Now simple question for the group, how many of you have (or had) a Caracal????? I did not think they got that popular among enthusiasts.

    I do (did). And I liked it a lot. For me it was better than the compacts S&W9c, SR9c, G19 I own or have owned. Trigger, ergos, my accuracy, and ease of cleaning were all better with the caracal c.

    I'll likely buy another caracal a few years down the road.
