    I received a letter today from Caracal asking for the return of my F that was a replacement for my original F that I purchased a few years ago. They'll will swap a brand new, improved Caracal F + goodies (Due April, 2015), or buy my pistol and accessories back.

    Anyone get one of these?

    Yep. Couldn't get the letter cause went to ups today to get whatever caracal sent me....but ups folks couldn't find the keys to open the lock box. So went to caracalforum and they have a thread talking about it.

    Someone said they called alabama and they dont have new pistols yet. Im not sending mine in until they have stock. I love this pistol....but this has gotten beyond silly.

    I call it true or stupid love cause otherwise i would have thrown my hands up by now and moved on.......

    So wait... Are they recalling the pistols that were issued during the last recall? Or did I read that wrong?

    You read it right. They are recalling the replacements from the first recall debacle.

    Here is the the letter....

    Terrible pic but its late and im worn out.

    While it may seem the way the letter is written that i never returned the first recalled pistol.....i had returned it for the replacement i currently own. Which is the serial number they are now adding to the recall. Hence they are now recalling the replacement they sent me from the first recall. It is what it is......i guess.

    Sounds kind of great to me - buy a Caracal and they'll upgrade you to a new pistol every year. :lol:

    funny, and would almost be true, but.........

    i was told.....the american steyr group/company isn't going to deal with caracal anymore after they fulfill their contract on this deal with caracal.

    I got that letter last week. I too will not be returning my Model F until Caracal can guarantee a quick turn around and they have replacements in stock.
