So my apologies first for what is probably going to be a long (and somewhat commercially related) post but I hope Caracal owners and collectors (and future owners and collectors) will find this info valuable: As you no doubt know, Waffen Werks was the original importer of the Caracal pistols to the States. (Steyr Arms International is the current importer (as of June 2012). There are approximately 1600 to 1700 Waffen Werks marked pistols in the US with the large majority being the Standard Sight F Models. Of that number, very few had the Quick Site configuration. Approximately 50 F (QS) models and 66 C (QS) models with the Waffen Werks marking originally made it into the states. Those are very rare numbers and those of us who own one or several of those pistols counted ourselves lucky. A few months ago, Steyr was able to import a handful of additional QS pistols as part of the Talo buy. I have never been able to obtain any exact or estimated numbers from Steyr or Caracal as to how many there were but based on the availability at distributors the numbers have been small. However, the consensus from a collectors standpoint is that these will not be valued as high as the Waffen Werks pistols because of the higher import numbers. Recently, Waffen Werks obtained their last 100 pistols from Caracal to complete their original purchase made several year ago. The bad news for collectors is that these are all Quick Site models. The good news for potential collectors is that these are all Quick Site models. Regardless of these additional imports, the total number of Waffen Werks QS models is extremely low. Here are the new figures: Caracal F (QS) (WW): 78 total Caracal C (QS) (WW): 138 total I was fortunate to obtain these latest and last Waffen Werks marked QS pistols and they are available at http://www.compactfirearms.com for purchase. Currently, the price is only $497+$9.97 shipping per pistol. While that is lower than what the original WW QS pistols sold for, it is higher than a Steyr import and the price will rise to maintain the value of the original imports as supply decreases. (I was only able to negotiate these prices because of the presence of the Steyr imports.) New owners will be pleased. Original owners may be somewhat dismayed. I'm not in the usual habit of promoting my business on this forum, but think this is an excellent opportunity for Caracal forum users to pick up a rare WW marked QS pistol if interested. I'm excited about some new features that we are offering at Compact Firearms. Primarily, we now offer a Loyalty Rewards program where you can earn points for registering on the web site, purchasing products, writing reviews, and telling others about the site. You can cash these points in on discounts and other merchandise (like Caracal Mags!). You will earn 5 points for every quality pistol review you write and 5 points everytime you post a quality, pertinent, post on another gun related forum telling others about the site. (we're not looking for spam posts in other forums. If the conversation leans towards somebody looking to purchase a product online and it's appropriate, please tell them about the web site ) The program is still in it's infancy and we will probably have to work out a few bugs but I'm hopeful for the best and look forward to implementing a similar rewards style program for forum participation down the road!
