Caracal has been trying to break into the U.S. firearms market for years. Robert was in love with their ill-fated F series handgun (and had his heart broken) since 2012. More recently, the Middle Eastern firearms manufacturer has promised to introduce a precision rifle — for two years (2016 and 2017). Third time lucky?
I hope so. I was particularly impressed with the CAR814 A2 Competition’s smooth, quick resetting Geissele S3G Single stage trigger. Despite weighing in at only 6.4 lbs. the recoil impulse is relatively soft. Add a carbon fiber-wrapped barrel and a [theoretical] MSRP of $1799 and it could be a winner.
We’ve asked for both rifles to review. Watch this space. Again. Still.
