    Does anyone know about the Caracal release in US?

    The pistols look awesome and sound quite good. I am digging around the net, but cannot find anything regarding a sales launch in the US. It is supposedly happening in 2010.

    Never heard of it. Found out it's made in United Arab Emirates. Wikipedia link here.

    My son is in the UAE and says all internet sites for firearms are blocked (very restricted). Guess they aren't selling online there!

    Vaguely looks like a blend of Glock and M&P.

    Don Glock,

    Thanks for attaching your previous post. Very interesting. Looks like it has the SIG P250 removable trigger mechanism element.

    I think it will be in the $700's. United Arab Emirates is a very stable ally of ours in the Arab world. Their product appears to be one of quality.

    the government in UAE is insane. Not sure how we're allies with a country that uses Sharia law but i guess if most of the social conservatives is congress had their way it'd be about the same here.

    The UAE is one of the most modern Arab countries, along with Kuwait. Stable as well. They're no Iran or North Korea, not by a long shot.

    Saudi Arabia is far worse when it comes to sharia law and we're better "allies" with them.

    As far as the actual topic, IMO it isn't great looking, but if it works well and is priced well, it doesn't hurt to have more competition in the polymer pistol world. I wouldn't buy one, though. I think they're going more for LE and military. I don't know if they'll do civilian sales in the US, although that market certainly is a sizable one.
