    Other than the tan inserts on the grip, I kinda like the looks of it. Sorta ""CZ75ish"".

    It's true, the people who designed the Steyr M series also designed the Caracal series for the UAE.

    The Steyr M series was suppose to be a refinement of the Glock pistol and the Caracal is suppose to be a refinement of the Steyr M series.

    Frankly I think the design of the gun is less important than the quality of the manufacturer. You could have the most innovative and efficient design but if the people building it have poor standards and quality control it is meaningless. Can anyone name a single product that is manufactured in the United Arab Emirites?

    Let's not lump UAE in there with the likes of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc...

    Different mentality over there. Reaper is correct. They are an advanced, more open style of country. Don't let the name fool you.

    the united arab emirates is quite the impressive country. they seem to be building one engineering marvel after another.

    i would certainly check this pistol out. maybe even buy one if it's quality.

    I wasn't aware that the number of parts in a Glock was a problem to begin with.

    I don't get it. What's with the read sights? Why on earth wuld you put them so far forward and ruin having a decent sight radius for more accurate distance shots. ("long range" as pistols go).

    Reaper you have a rather high regard for a gun that it's even available in the U.S. Do you have a connection to Caracal or its importer?
