Gun Tests evaluated the Caracal F Quick Sight 9mm, $524; and the Caracal C Quick Sight 9mm, $524; in the September 2012 issue. Of the pistols, our testers said, “Both Caracal pistols were easy to shoot. Grip angle and size afforded plenty of support. We might have preferred target sights on the F model to maximize the potential of its longer sight radius. But when it comes to a fast-action CQB pistol, it’s hard to beat the Caracal C with Quick Sights. It was like punching your fist at the target. Firing each pistol, we read little change in control from fully laden to last shot fired. The triggers might have been too light, but we liked the near vertical rest position and how easy they were to read in terms of reset. The first-shot-low syndrome may vary from pistol to pistol, but keeping the magazine fully loaded should minimize the problem.”

The Model C earned a B+ grade. The Model F full-size pistol got a B grade.
