    Good evening Everyone,


    I have put approximately 350 rounds through my Caracal F without any malfunctions.
    The pistol is amazing, the only thing lacking are a good set of night sights.

    The rear frame pin is coming out slightly, this I noticed after 250 rounds.
    I gently tapped it back to sit flush in the frame.
    I fired another 100 rounds and I noticed it come out again.
    I should have taken some pictures but I have already tapped it back in.

    Has anyone encountered this problem?
    The gun is brand new, I will be contacting Caracal US on Monday morning.

    The rear pin on my C is not quite flush, but its tight. Only 250 rds thru it so far. I will keep an eye on the pin going forward. The pin in my F is good with 200 rds fired.

    My buddy and I both have Caracal C Quick Site Guns and the rear pin walked out on both. They were sent back for service. Steyr is doing the Warranty work.

    You will have to pay to ship them back but they cover the return cost. They were gone about a week and came back test fired and cleaned.

    They will take care of you.

    I have yet to hit the range since they came back.

    Yes. I know of one pistol locally that has encountered this problem as well. A little loc-tite would do the trick and save you the cost of shipping.

    same as mine. the roll pin on my C is walkling out.

    check the last page of this thread

    viewtopic.php?f=12&t=384


    for temporary cure and since at present I cannot find any spare roll pins yet, i pushed the roll pin back to its place and covered the hole with "car body filler"

    Thanks for the replies.

    What did the Factory say was the problem ?
    Did they change the pins ?

    Both Cs and my F have this problem. I tried a little blue loctite, but it hasn't helped as much as I'd hoped.

    car body filler did not help.

    it sounds weird but I covered the hole (both sides) with devcon epoxy.
