    First post fellows.I am going to make a trade tomorrow for a Caracal C with QAS. The Caracal has had 300 rounds down the tube but looks new. I am trading my Gen 3 Glock 26 with night sights for it. The Glock is in good shape with about 2000 rounds down the pipe. Do you guys think it was a good trade for me? I am mainly making the trade because of the QAS and how low the Caracal sits in the hand. I have never shot a Caracal but they just feel so good in the hand. So any thoughts on my trade.

    Welcome to the SteyrClub!

    IMHO you are doing a wise thing! The QAS is an excellent design for defensive pistol.

    Seems to be a shortage right now....guess due to the recall of the pistol and thi being a side effect of that. I checked all my usual haunts that carried them. Most said out of stock or no backorders. Some had eliminated existance of them ever being on their site. Best bet is call caracal usa andbuy them direct.

    I did order 3 F mags from centerfiresystems. They do not have C mags right now.

    Since the recall was announced, I believe most outlets have returned their stock for refunds. Good news is, you'll get a free mag when you send your pistol in for exchange.

    I am not sending mine back. I will take my chances. This thing just shoots too good.

    I feel the same way, but I carry these guns and do not want to risk a mechanically-induced AD.

    With the return of them, there might be a way we can fix the issue our selves as well.

    Might be something stupid like stone this part for half a second, reassemble. okay, strike catches right now.

    I don't think it is any different than carrying a Series 70's Colt.

    I wouldn't do that, either - if I had a choice.

    So, no reports of returns on the caracals yet?

    You know, let me ask Jeff (not at SAI) to see if he has any insider info.

    Im going to wait it out and see how things go with the recalled Pistols.Hopefully after this is over I can return mine for just a repair, wishful thinking on my part.
