The Caracal C with Quick Sights is a genuine game changer. [Click here to read Chris Dumm’s review.] The gun’s compact dimensions, low bore axis, brick shithouse construction, affordable price ($499) revolutionary Quick Sights (+ $25) and easy, crisp-breaking trigger (with positive reset) make it a genuine Glock beater. I carry one. In this I am not alone. Scott O’Brien at Caracal USA tells TTAG the C is on backorder. The gunmaker’s American distributor (TALO) is shifting every gun they get; both C’s and full-size F’s, with and without the “in front of the ejection port” sights. Caracal’s importing 10k units in 2012. Due out by the end of this year: the 9mm carbine—which uses the F’s 18-round mags. Caracal will introduce a .40 F at SHOT in January and maybe a C in the same caliber. The company’s waiting for the ATF to approve the 9mm SC (Sub-Compact). All in all, O’Brien says the UAE gunmaker’s products have been “well-received.” Roger that.
