    Anyone own a Caracal yet?

    Curious what people who own them think. Saw some on gunbroker for $550.

    Troy is about 30min from me and does most of my AK work. He is an outstanding guy to deal with and as soon as there is a NS option, I'll be picking up a F and hopefully eventually a SC model.

    I haven't seen one in person yet. I'm a bit curious about getting one, but I'm not sure if I could pull the trigger.

    Who knows it may be the best fitting handgun I've ever felt. Probably not though.

    Never heard of these, until this very moment........

    Just wondering, though......Why the high visibility yellow strip? My first thought is I wouldn't buy one of these because I'd rather have the low profile advantage of not having something that stands out like that.......?

    The only time I'd overlook something like that, is on a stainless gun.......there, you usually don't have much of a choice if you want stainless.......but, that Caracal is like wearing hunter's orange, when you don't have to!

    US models are all black. The inserts come in different colors and the intended purpose is for military units to color cordinate. Its a wilhelm bubits design...if you're familliar with the steyr m pistols and he was also a designer at glock.

    The only thing I don't like is the site on the f model. Part of the pistol. But I imagine they will change that soon. I plan to get one with the quick site when I get a chance. I think its novel...and its pretty functional from what the gun rags say.

    I think ill wait a while to see how it goes...was just curious if anyone had one yet.
     
  7. I've never held one in my hand, but I'll be shooting one in a couple of weeks down in Oak Ridge, TN.

    First I have heard of it. Looks like it sits low like a HK p7 which I like. Interested in firing one....

    Shot one...not bad. I wouldn't spend that much for it though. One negative is you better like the factory sights because the rear sight is integral with the striker mechanism...

    No experience with the pistol, but I have dealt with the distributor of this pistol (Waffen Werks) and they are absolutely top notch in taking care of issues.

    The guns have the same feel as my Steyr M40-A1. I have no question about reliability considering the designer and the similarity to the Glock and Steyr pistols. As soon as there is a change to the sites, I'm on board.

    I like the Steyr m better myself. This is the next pistol by the steyr designer.

    I wouldnt mind having one, as I'm a fan of Bubits. However, I've grown tired of plastic frame autos.

    Yeah, I think I'll save my money, let you guys test them out for a while befor I'd buy one. After my little jaunt with the Kimber Solo I'm in no rush to buy a new to the market handgun.
