    I was browsing this online guns site call centerfiresystem.com today and I came across this gun call CARACAL 9mm UAE, looks like a glock somewhat. So I looks it up on youtube. Watch a gentleman shoot it and then I google it and found out it's made in UAE and Germany.

    Ok what I'm getting to is have anyone of you guys tried this new SD weapon out???

    Is it a hit or miss because I'm hearing the factory trigger is a pound lighter then glock. And let's be honest, the germans knows weapons really well.

    The Germans do make good weapons. You also stated it was made in UAE. How are they at making weapons? besides the home made variety used in terrorist attacks. I would stick with a proven weapon like a Glock and just have a trigger job done. Just my opinion though. Good luck with your search. :)

    Yes, Germans built some great firearms.


    Too bad the Glock is not built there.

    I'm getting one. I think it's a really great buy. Plus I heard a gentleman putting 10,000-11,000 rounds thru one with no problem but it digging into his thumb.

    The reviews i read say its a modified glock. Redesigned grip for more comfort and better balance, a system that recoils straight backwards to reduce muzzel climb, funky sights but very accurate little pistol.

    Personal i wouldn't touch it being made by the people who are making it. But thats me, if you want one go for it.

    Look at it like this, if it is made by terrorist then what's better then taking out a terrorist with they're own weapons lol. But wasnt we like this toward the glock, now we embrace it.

    We have terrorist here so what's the different? I like it and gonna get one to add to my collection. Let's tried them before we knock them....

    I didnt knock it at all. I just would not want to support our enemies by purchasing a firearm made by them.

    If you feel differently buy the gun.

    Modified glock ?? No way. Modified Styer M-a1 series design . Same designer did both after some time working for others. The caracal is also made buy Merkel in germany and that is owned by the UEA. Seems to review very well too. There not anything wrong with a glock trigger at 5 to 5.5lb when broke in with little effort is easy to master useing only the short resets for second shot and all after that. Glock first pull is 1/2" long . Learn to move forward only enought to reset the trigger and its only 1/8" long.

    Whats with the stupid enemies remark. Is china your friend or enemy?? They are more agressive than most any country. Most everthing we all buy comes from china ether as a finished product or as base material. Or some where other than here and most could then be concedered your enemy . You don't want something, don't buy it but be a bit smarter about your answers. Think we have 5 bases in UEA right now.

    This is what merkels know for.- http://www.merkel-die-jagd.de/en/produkte/gewehre/bockgewehre-reihe-2000

    I think it's a good gun. I'm not so close minded to where I won't try new designs out. To me it doesn't matter who makes it.....
