caracal
 
Can someone tell me anything about a caracal F. I heard its better then the glock in terms of safety features and trigger

From what I hear, Caracal's go bang when you pull the trigger.

Not drinking any of that other kool-ade, am I.

Looks like someone dehorned a Glock and gave it steel mags. I'd like to see one shoot though....

Most things are.

Just kidding. Kind of.

I've heard they're good reliable pistols. There are some good YouTube videos on them.

And people say glocks are ugly...

Anyway here's a long review someone did. They seemed to like it. It sounds like it held its own against his g17, xd, m&p, and steyr. I'd like to try one myself.

It sounded like it had some nice features. They have those 2 dot sights on them which impersonally liked the one time I tried them on a g17. I dunno if you've used them.

I carry a Caracal C everyday and love it. They are definitely worth the money IMO. Very ergonomic with a great trigger. It beats Glock's triggers by a mile. As far as safety features go, they're about the same. The Caracal has more options though, like a cocked striker indicator and an ambidextrous mag release.

I forgot to add that in spite of the extra features, they have fewer parts than a Glock as well. The sights are better IMO too.

Wasn't there a recall somewhat recently that was safety related? I've reAd good things but every gun mag prints good reviews of everything....

Yes, there was a recall on a select few Caracal C's. The recall info is on their website. It was a bad batch of slides. I have absolutely no complaints about the gun. It's awesome!

It was not a few caracals It was first off ,every caracal shipped to the usa at least then another that covered many of the c models so any bought for private parties take time to contact caracal usa to be sure your was in for service.
