    Moeen Bhai ,
    Loved the "so this armchair expert" statement at the end of the video
    An amazing in depth review of a gun which has become pretty popular

    So when can I Show up to get a trigger job done on my Caracal :P
    I call dibs !!!!!

    Here are the suggestions from the Caracal Endurance Test:
    Regarding the Suggestions:

    No. 2 : Slide release : Abbas bhai , I'm pretty sure they hv Designed it as a slide stop and not a slide release (Sig's hv a Slide release if I'm not mistaken , most other handguns come with slide locks, hence their awkward position,and tiny sizes ).
    Now, I'm aware that there are very experienced and knowledgeable shooters who use the slide stop as a release. They're not wrong, but that method has its drawbacks. In a stress situation, fine motor skills evaporate. Operating a small, oddly-positioned lever with shaking, sweaty hands will be problematic at best.
    For competition purposes its probably faster to use a slide release than sling shot the Slide, But in the context of a combat pistol , I think its a perfectly ok as it is.
    However this would be a good place, where After market , or factory made options can come in handy.

    No. 10 : I think that has been sorted out already :http://www.caracal.ae/new/highlights.php
    "Some of the CC10 features are a short travel trigger, magazines with 15, 18 or 30 round capacity (magazines are interchangeable with the Caracal pistol family) "
    Just need to get those imported.

    Salam All,
    @Denovo87 - Bhai jan, I am becoming impatient, I wanna come over to your place and do a review of the item you recently purchased along side mine... what do you say? Thanks for the kind words.
    @Laino - Thank you sir, I am glad you liked it as much as I enjoyed working on it.
    @Raja Yasir - Thank you for coming over, we are still on for tomorrow as far as I know, so expect my call.
    @Salman Ahmed - Thank you sir, the "arm chair expert" comment was a joking retort for our Boss of PG. He was the first to give me a call and congratulate me. As for the trigger job, I can do it; however, what would be nice is that you have everything ready (tools) and I make a visit and have you do it in front of me. It will encourage you to be a little more aggressive towards the handling and breakdown of your pistol....

    @All - I must admit there are a few improper words used in my video regarding parts names. But I didn't wanna redo another video. Will do a better job next time... its slide release lever and not slide stop. The lever above the trigger guard is the slide lock.

    @Laino - no showdown bro, just a comparison between two models of same brand pistols... not the Caracal Fs.

    @Moeen thx for the work and time you put it in,it was trully a pleasure to watch.
    I have a question that you said your caracal FTF 3 times.I plan to get one Inshallah and my purpose is for self defence only so your FTF was a bit upsetting for me.You then told you "polished" the top of the magezine bridge i believe.
    Now my question is should everyone polish there caracal magezines or did your magezine have a flaw in it?
    And what sort of polishin did you do exactly?
    Thank you for your time.

    Salam All,

    @Nazim Sahib - Thanks for the compliments, the inside of the magazine lips were not faulty rather another quick manufacturing process fault. When ever one uses a stamping die to cut and then bend as is the case in the magazines - one MUST lightly polish the cut lines as they are sharp. This was the case in the mag's inner lips, its a simple process really, take really fine sand paper 2000 grit, tear a strip and rub along the feed lips till they no longer feel sharp. Hope that helps.
    @Soldier - Thank you sir.
    @Laino - brother you are welcome by me.
    @Kamranwali - Thank you sir, it would be a pleasure to meet you, matter of fact I was in your city two days ago. This is my email address: paradigms67@hotmail.com, send me your mobile number at this email and I will be sure to call you when I visit there next.
    @Aquarius - Thank you Dr Sahib, its been a while we haven't met. Thinking of planning a trip to your city with Dr. Zakir as he hasn't been out much either.
    @Ameer - Thanks bro, where are you located? If Isb, then lets meet up, its been a while. Check with Dr. Zakir as well.

    wonderful review and excellent work as always moeen bhai. I was kinda so intrigued by the thing you did to this caracal that I just had to your house and see for myself before posting anything here. I must insist that you did a wonderful job with this one. Trigger feels very good, infact, with my eyes closed I cannot tell if its a Caracal's trigger.

    as far as my experience with this gun is concerned, the three things that I have always hated:

    1. bad trigger: personal preference mostly. I just do not like hard and mushy triggers. your trigger job made hell of a difference when compared to stock caracal's trigger.

    2. fixed rear sight: no drift adjustment possible without drifting the front sight. with your modification of cutting a standard glock dovetail, a world of possibilities have opened up. now we can install any glock rear sight on a caracal plus the rear sight setup is now drift adjustable. what I liked the most about your modification is that it looks like a standard factory job with high finish.

    3. bad grip: personal preference, the rear of the grip digs into the knuckle of my hand. plus the rear of the grip (beavertail) is not deep enough to offer any significant benefit.

    WHAT I LIKED THE MOST:

    Bro, I just have to have those sights installed on my handgun, my laptop, my cellphone, my wrist watch. better yet, can you install one on me? i willing to go under surgery.

    these are probably the best fixed/combat sights I have ever seen. the sight picture is just too clear and easy on the eyes.

    here are the pictures that I took while the cat was away:























    Regards.
