  1. I called Caracal this morning & they were extremely polite & apologetic. Explained the mailer would go out immediately & would also look into my other concern regarding a rattle. So far, the best CS experience I have had with any gun company. Look forward to buying an SC and an CC 10 when available.

  2. I had Caracal F pistol with me,which I had purchased in December 2012.its number starts with LZ and I intend to know the reliability of the this 9MM pistol because I am unable to understand that why recall notice has been served,is there any major problem I’m this pistol, just recall notice has been issued due to fire when drops with bullet in.chamber if so then it has also been happened with other modern 9MM pistol.of of Austria.
