    I've actually seen them around on some online sites and saw one of their full size models (F?) at a show a few weeks ago. Buds was pushing them pretty hard when they first came out.

    I think this brand was kicked off by a high level engineer leaving Glock to join / start Caracal. The guns are manufactured in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). I've read a few reviews and they apparently received acclaim for elegant design (actually fewer parts than Glock, as I recall) - but they sure appear to have had some production or engineering issues in use.

    A good reason to stick with something a bit more proven...

    Why anyone would buy a CZ clone at the same price mystifies me.

    The Caracal is an awesome handgun. I had one and loved it.
    The only reason I let it go was because they took so long on the recall.
    My shooting buddy has it now and he loves it.
    He won't send it back for the recall. The trigger and accuracy are about as good as it gets.
    Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!

    Shame, interesting design and good price. Everyone who got one raved about them. There were a few reports of firing pins breaking, then they had the first drop un-safe issue recall for the F's and C's and now this problem with the compact model.

    I think you are thinking of a different pistol, the Caracal wasn't a CZ clone.

    I have 2 F's and I love them. 1 regular sight and 1 QC. Its a shame they have run into these safty glitches with their first run. Especially when they had been run so hard through their paces when they first came out. The only gun with a better trigger out of the box, even after market triggers, is the PPQ which I also have.

    I really liked some of the design aspects. You're not going to find a lower bore axis.

    However, the software industry taught me not to be an early adopter. The G19 still fulfills the role quite nicely.

    I watched the Caracal's, but the one I am interested in is the Aresenal Strike One. Don't know if it will ever come across the Atlantic though.

    It's a Steyr clone, not a CZ clone.
