Caracal Safety Recall

Damnit.  It appears that a Caracal pistol discharged when it was dropped.  Caracal has issued a recall that covers pretty much every Caracal imported into the US.

Link, with updates.

At least one person has been unable to replicate this malfunction, so my guess is that there’s a tolerance stacking issue with the firing pin block or its related parts.

This is not good news for Caracal.  But, they seem determined to deal with the problem in a professional manner.  Offering to buy back guns subject to the recall is something I’ve never heard of in this industry.

Stay tuned for more news.
