    Hey just wanted to say hey proud owner of WW F and new to the site. Weird thing about mine is I bought mine here in Knoxville where I live and it came witht 3 mags, and a fiber optic front sight. The 3 3 mags are nice but that F/O sight is great. is that rare? :?:

    imho, yes absolutely. i love my cat, but there is just something extra special about my steyr c9. can't say what for sure, but it's just a great pistol. if you like your caracal, then i'd be surprised you wouldn't like a steyr.

    Since WW is in Knoxville, TN it would be interesting to know if you got it from them, or who else might have added a fiber optic front sight. Factory? Seller? Also what did you pay and when did you get it? I'd make the drive from Asheville if I thought I could find a C with a visible front sight for decent money. Thanks.

    It's was $389, but it's the only one I've seen here. I got it at a pawn shop, and it came with 3 mags I think it was from WW when they were still in Knoxville. I just think it was odd for it to have a fiber optic front sight and an original waffen works. Do you think it was a good deal?

    Yes, it seems like a very good deal. New or used? Are the sights standard or quicksights? Either way, I would have guessed $450-550 w/FO sight and 3 mags. I paid $500 for a new C-QS with 3 mags. I'm also looking for a Steyr, probably a subcompact 9 or 40, since the Caracal SC seems a bit up in the air for now...

    It was used, but I was pretty happy with the deal. One reason I had never seen a caracal f with the f/o.

    Just an fyi, the Steyr S9-A1 is the same size as a Caracal C - but with 10 round mags and heavier to boot. Just sayin' :p
