    I am soooo glad I sent in my F and C-QS for refunds months ago, and cashed the check while they had the money to cover it! Who needs this nonsense!

    To which Kraut gun are you referring? Chances are, the one (or two) you are referencing were designed by the same Kraut who designed the 'camel gun' (it's a Kraut gun too).

    Though I may be incorrect, I read it in terms of production and not design.

    For those who don't send in their Caracals (especially the Compacts with Quick Sights) do you think they one day will become a collectors item?

    Has anyone gotten their refund check from Caracal yet? I think it's been a good 4-6 weeks since I returned my C, but I know these things usually move at a glacial pace...

    You might want to call them, Doc - I eventually did, and I got the distinct impression that I wasn't really on their list. I received a box just a few days after I made that call.

    Yeah, I've emailed and called; kind of got the same impression when I called, but no box. I'll try again, though, can't hurt to try. Hopefully, I'll get the same results you did!

    Just got off the phone with Caracal - the rep. I talked to said they are printing the C recall checks this week. $$$ should be on its way soon. :popcorn: :)

    Ya, but it got held back a grade - reworked by the factory and all that. It's a solid "D-" now.
