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.
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.
