Caracal owners: RECALL....please read!!

Caracal USA has determined a potential condition of the trigger unit in a very limited number of Caracal F and C pistols that could possibly allow the pistol to fire when dropped onto a hard surface with a round in the chamber. Although Caracal USA has not received any reports of injuries, it is initiating this voluntary recall to protect the safety of its customers because of the remote possibility of an unintentional discharge occurring. The affected Caracal pistols have serial numbers that begin with B, C, F, L, or M. If your pistol's serial number begins with one of these letters, please follow the following steps. Only the Caracal F and C pistols with the serial numbers identified above are affected by this recall. If your pistol has a different serial number, it is not subject to the recall. If you own a Caracal F or C pistol with a serial number identified as being affected by this recall, please do not load or fire your Caracal F or C pistol and contact us immediately to arrange to have the trigger unit replaced, completely free of charge, using the following steps: Step 1 - Contact us at 205-655-7050 (Monday-Friday 8-5 Central Standard Time), or at info@caracal-usa.com and provide the model and serial number of your pistol. Step 2 - After contacting us, we will send you a prepaid overnight shipping box with instructions so that you can return your pistol to us, free of charge. Step 3 - Your firearm will be returned as quickly and efficiently as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, and to thank you for your patience and cooperation, we will send you a free magazine when we return your pistol to you. For more information, you may visit Caracal or call Caracal USA at 205-655-7050

A repost isn't such a bad thing when safety is concerned and the original post thread has virtually disappeared among the sheer volume of other activity.

I usually browse off the "New Posts" page, which doesn't include about 99% of the site's content.

Agreed.....also, i think any type of recall/safety issue should be a sticky....this is a very dangerous thing, and the more eyes that are on it the better!!!!!!!!

Caracal Recall

Later update said parts would not be available for 12 weeks. Called Caracal, told that each owner would be called in serial# order & given the choice of sending gun @ Caracal expense for repair or getting a full refund of purchase price. Shouls still be on Caracal website. Like the gun so much, I'm keeping mine.
