Caracal Recalls F and C Pistols: Not Drop-Safe


Well that sucks. On the same day that I received my most excellent RKBA kydex holster for my superlative Caracal C semi-automatic pistol, a TTAG reader emailed me a heads-up on the gun’s recoil. Which is as mild as a .32. I mean, recall. “Caracal USA has determined a potential condition of the trigger unit in a very limited number of Caracal F and C pistols that could possibly allow the pistol to fire when dropped onto a hard surface with a round in the chamber. Although Caracal USA has not received any reports of injuries, it is initiating this voluntary recall to protect the safety of its customers because of the remote possibility of an unintentional discharge occurring . . .

“The affected Caracal pistols have serial numbers that begin with B, C, F, L, or M. If your pistol’s serial number begins with one of these letters [it does], please follow the following steps.

“Only the Caracal F and C pistols with the serial numbers identified above are affected by this recall. If your pistol has a different serial number, it is not subject to the recall.

“If you own a Caracal F or C pistol with a serial number identified as being affected by this recall, please do not load or fire your Caracal F or C pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have the trigger unit replaced, completely free of charge.”

Back to the Glock 30SF. The Raven holster does a terrific job of hiding the Austrian hammer’s bulk, but I can—could carry the Caracal under a T shirt without printing. I’ll let you know how Caracal’s customer service works out. [h/t Mark S Wild]
