To add to the recent pistol recalls, Caracal has been struggling with safety issues with their Model C pistols since last October. The original Caracal Model C pistol recall was added to in February. And yesterday, Caracal has further expanded their Model C pistol recall to include every Model C they’ve produced.
The first Caracal Model C pistol recall centered around a trigger safety failure that resulted in the gun firing unintentionally when dropped on a hard surface. The recall in February concerned Model C pistols that improperly heat-treated slides. During fire, the slides broke, which injured the shooters. The serial numbers effected were first released in March, but Caracal expanded the list in September to include all Model C pistols.
Recalled Serial Numbers
The Caracal Model C pistol recall effects every model C pistol, including, but not limited to serial numbers starting with:
