    As most of you know, in 2012 Caracal announced that most (if not all) of the Caracal C & F pistols in the US were subject to a recall due to the possibility that a round may discharge if the pistol was dropped.

    So, I requested a replacement about 7 months ago and got a call about a month ago that my replacement F was in and Caracal sent me a FedEx pre-paid shipping label to send my gun in for replacement. Less than a week later I had my new F in my hands.

    Pros:
    -Free magazine, shirt, hat, & pen.
    -Free installation of a front fiber optic front sight (had to pay for the part though)
    -Included a 15% discount coupon off my next Caracal purchase
    -Still has a great trigger (more on this in the video below)
    -Quick turnaround once I sent it in.

    Cons:
    -Took a while for the replacement gun to get into the country; still waiting on my replacement C model

    Here's the video with some shooting with the new gun, a discussion of the differences between the old and new one, and my overall thoughts of the process:

    Hopefully when all the recall stuff gets sorted out caracals will become available. I'm a big fan of the Bubbits designed pistols I've used. The caracal is a gun I have a lot of interest in but haven't seen one offered anywhere for some time. I know Bubbits likes the 10MM. I'd love to see a Caracal chambered in 10mm.
