    Welcome KevlarSix! Looking forward to your contribution to the forum.

    How long have the Caracals been selling in the Philippines?

    And, a little curious what the local perception of Armscor and Metro Arms is. Fill us in ;)

    Hi,

    They just launched the product a couple of months ago and I was one of the first buyers here in the Philippines.

    Armscor produces budget 1911 pistols and also hi end ones as STI already has a partnership with them.

    Aside from the Caracal pistol, Armscor is the official distributor of Tanfoglio pistols here

    Hi, e_l_q here from Cebu Philippines.

    I got my Caracal C two days ago. I'm very impressed with its build quality.

    I'll post range report here once I've fired it.

    I test fired my Caracal C (quick sight) 28 Sept for 60 rounds (fired 55 rounds of reloaded ammo after firing 5 new ammo without jam). accuracy is above average, no jam, very soft recoil (it's more of a push than a kick) and fits very well in my hand

    I'm firing it at a slower pace as i'm still adjusting the DA trigger pull ( I'm used to DA/SA ofg Bersa and SA of Taurus 1911). Very smooth trigger pull and very nice trigger reset. Target is very easy to acquire due to its Quick Sight.

    I'm having a hard time positioning my video cam as I have no other shooting buddy with me at range and decided to have this position just to capture the action:

    Thanks for the vid! Not bad for a one man production crew :p

    Wait till you start shooting the Caracal at speed. This is where I think the pistol really shines.
