Regular readers will know my long, sad tale of falling in love with the how-low-can-you-go bore axis polymer pistol. And the painful divorce occasioned by the drop-safe-related recall. And the promise of the Caracal F’s return. And the long, long, long wait for that to be realized. Well, they’re baaaack!
Caracal’s kicking off their reanimation with a Limited-Edition pistol commemorating “Caracal’s commitment to supporting the U.S. market.” A statement which is bound to inspire Ralph to new heights/depths of sarcasm. Anyway . . .
The Enhanced F – Limited Edition pistol is a striker-fired, polymer-framed 9mm pistol comprised of a Caracal International frame with a Caracal USA slide, and is assembled in the United States. The pistol features a crisp, short double-action trigger, an 18-round magazine and is available with 3 dot sights, or the highly acclaimed “Quick Sight System,” which places both the front and rear sights on a single focal plane allowing the shooter to acquire a clear flash sight picture on target extremely fast.
The Enhanced F pistol is shipped in a Caracal® branded hard case with 2 magazines, an Otis cleaning kit, cable lock, and a user manual. MSRP for the Enhanced F pistol is $599, and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty for the original owner.
True dat. But as I’m still heart broken from a failed romantic entanglement (i.e. she dumped me), I’m not rushing into any more relationships, human or ballistic. Caracal says they’ve put TTAG on the T&E list so watch this space.
Meanwhile, Caracal promises that “the Enhanced F pistol will evolve to a U.S. manufactured product.” And their website is working! So the signs are good that I’ll be reunited with what was once my favorite pistol on the planet. Did I just say that?
