I’ve been waiting quite some time for Caracal to replace my carry gun. Regular readers will recall that I had a whole “Caracal C Held Hostage” thing going on. I’m pleased to announce that the series pegged-out at exactly 200 days. As of this morning, my Caracal C is free! Well, headed back to meet its maker, leaving behind its box-fresh brother. To make sure that the United Arab Emirates gunmaker’s trigger fix hadn’t ruined the 9mm’s sublime go-pedal, I asked Caracal to let me keep the old gun for a side-by-side comparo . . .
No problemo, as they say in Dubai. If anything the new gun’s trigger is a tiny bit crisper than the one that made me cray-cray in a good way. I’m just getting used to it again, but stacking three rounds on top of each other at five yards is pretty good shooting for Coke bottle bottom boy.
It’s official: you may send your C back with confidence. Or buy one warily when they become available again in stores. That is all.
