Caracal Pistol Recall? Heads up??
Caracal announced today a recall of every C model pistol the company has ever made. The recall is not limited to any specific serial numbers or market.
The safety issue(s) with the Caracal C cannot be fixed according to information released by the company. No guns will be repaired and/or returned to the purchaser. Caracal is offering a full refund of the original purchase price or vouchers for other Caracal products.
This recall is an extension of the recall announced in March 2013 for a limited number of Caracal C pistols. Caracal stated after investigating the problems, the company initiated a recall of all C pistols “because the safety of its customers is paramount.”
Caracal states in the recall notice that owners of the C should not load or shoot the pistols. While the guns appear to be unsafe, one wonders if holding on to one as a collector’s item would be smart. You would have to accept that you should never shoot the gun again, but would the gun be valuable to collectors at some future date?
This recall announcement comes right after Caracal announced the introduction of a completely new handgun line. Three of the new Caracal pistols are updated versions of the original F, C and SC models. Those pistols have been given new names: CP660, CP661, and CP662.

This is the entire recall notice as issued by Caracal:
