The Caracal series of pistols are extremely modern, embracing 21st Century concepts in ergonomics, design and manufacturing techniques. The Caracal F is a modern semi-automatic pistol in 9mmx19. It supports an 18-round magazine, a tactical rail and boasts unique features such as a short 8mm trigger pull and an extremely low-profile slide and bore axis, the combined effect of which is greatly reduced felt recoil. The Caracal has an easy to operate, concealed disassembly lever and its metal parts are coated in a unique hostile environment finish called Plasox that prevents rust and other corrosion. The unique Caracal Quick Sight System (QS) allows for extremely quick target acquisition under pressure. Unlike conventional pistol sights, both the front and rear sights are seen in the same focal plane. Along with two loaded chamber indicators the Caracal has a visual and tactile cocked indicator for added security.
