    The CARACAL Club !

    Observing a growing number of happy Caracal owners, I feel a single thread would be beneficial for the recollection of user experience here, rather than having to look around for different threads.

    The recently adjusted prices for the Caracal handguns, standard package, have enabled this handgun as one of the top CCW contenders - speaking quality manufacture - and offering a great value-for-money ratio as when compared to both up and down level options.

    A vacuum had been existing since long within this particular price segment and seems now to have been filled out well by this handgun.

    You may share your Caracals and user experience here:

    The C model, QS:







    Maiden shots:



    Firing history:

    120 Rounds. NIL Issues.

    With this, let me congratulate also TH and Ameer bro who both recently acquired their pieces and seem to be satisfied with the new toys. Happy shooting bros!

    @TH...........Nice to know you managed the slide lock issue and from your video string it doesn't appear much as the F model is having any significant reset delay.

    @Ameer........Bro, your requirement for a reliable, deep concealed SD carry is met well with your C. Nice choice. Do share your experience, both in separate overall review as well as in a short resume with picture shots here.


    Regards.

    This thread was needed not only for short reviews and small burst of range visits but for FAQs about all Caracals Models including price and availability. Nice Work Sir, and i will keep posting my experience and Questions over here.

    Is Caracal-C is tested for +P rounds? I would really want to know before i fire some WCC rounds through it. Even Walther doesn't recommend it for use into PPQ.

    Have read somewhere that Caracal passed NATO test (dont remember exactly the name n standard); so a test done by NATO must have been done with their own ammo (WCC) & the +p rated ammo as NATO WCC is not a true +P but between SAAMI & +P standard.
    Secondly I failed to understand why we are concerned over +P ammo usage in different handguns where almost all the 9mm handguns made by Taurus, CZ, & even Turkish are approved to use +P rated ammos.
    More importantly we cannot use +P ammo (economically) with the frequency that can be considered dangerous for an already +P approved hand gun.
    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    sadatpk bro; there's nothing wrong with this thread. A review is very personal opinion on a certain firearm by an owner but a CLUB for a particular product is sort of general thing where everyone can chip his/her point of view, experience, problems, upgrade ideas etc.

    Hope this clears your concern; be sure we never discourage a positive contribution from a member no matter how senior or junior is he/she. Now cheer up & gear up for a new Caracal

    Ak47 bro, Thanks for opening this thread, i agree its better to post our experiences with this gun in one thread then in different threads. It was a relief to know that slide release/stop issue was just a user error and not a guns problem. Trigger reset is bit long but not a issue as you can see in the video.

    Ameer bro +P rounds should'nt be a issue. I'm sure after clearing NATO tests the gun can handle +P rounds. Besides i've tried some in mine and no problems. Alhamdullilah

    Ameer..............Bro, Denovo Sir cleared it up well with reference to the Nato tests. Go ahead, should have no issues. But I'd still say, use traditional ammo for the 1.st hundred shots at least.

    Now let's have your separate review as well, and do throw in a couple of pics over here too.

    @TH...........Thanks bro. Where are your sesky pics? Keep udating your own review as well, which in fact caused me an F itch, raging high these days, lolz!

    Sadatpk bro, this thread cannot replace the reviews, but is just a chit chat corner for latest goings and news on Caracals and easy access to info. Not all Caracal owners can post/write reviews, so can share here.

    TH bro's review was a great and excellent review and we are now expecting a sesky one from Ameer bro also. We cannot have enough of reviews, they transfer much more in-depth knowledge.

    But reviewers - inclusive of myself - usually do not like their threads to be corrupted with general talks. That's what this thread is for, the casual, brief news on user feed-backs, casual range visits, latest market trends, accessories, holsters, new models, other Caracal weapons, etc.


    Regards.

    The prices of both would be appreciated.

    Initially it was for 10K's. Last time I was offered, it was 7K's. It depends on availability and offered by whom.
