    I keep stopping by to check on traffic here,occasionally I'll post something in an attempt to get a response. I can't be the only one that still shoots my "F" regularly, can I?
    Anyway, I just picked up a quick detach offset rail mount from Amazon to use with Surefire 6P. I reversed the clamping lever to mount the light on the left side of the rail and positioned the light so that I can operate the end cap with my support side thumb. I use a thumbs foward two hand grip and this works great! My club has a night match coming up Sept.6 and I'm spending this weeks dry practice time on retrieving the light from a pocket and slapping it on without muzzling my hand or fingers.[ makes ROs skittish] I also added a Cree LED bulb and holy crap does it throw a beam, even with 9 mo old batteries.

    I sold mine, truth be told. I will await the new one, and see what their level of advertising and support for it will be.

    I can dig it. I'm beginning to doubt we'll ever see them.

    I still shoot both my Caracal F's. But it seems we might be in for a long wait to see anything new from Caracal.

    I never sent my C back but I haven't shot it either. This recall really sucks. A few months back I let a guy take some pics of my C with his tactical scope mount. He was generous to give me one of his mounts for my time. Alas, the mount will only fit the one pistol I own that I shouldn't continue shooting. Figures. Just my dumb luck...

    Up to you,tdocz.

    If your "C" is not within the 'slide production numbers for the 'failed heat treatment' of the first "C" recall, I would shoot it. It would appear that all 'c's were recalled later because Caracal determined that it was easier to do a redesign than modify thousands of more drop safetys. if it was so dangerous they would have recalled all the 'F's as well, this was a business decision not a safety decision.
    You could still contact Caracal USA and probably get your original costs back or sell it, there were a couple of people here looking to buy "C"s.
    I'm not in a position to buy it but if I could I would in a heartbeat! Remember; there are millions of pistols out there that never had drop safetys.

    [anything you'd trade for?]

    N.M., sorry for the late reply. I haven't checked the site for a while. I might consider a trade. Never thought about it before. I'd be open to exploring the idea. I was thinking about an AR upper in something other than 5.56, or an LP308 upper? An intriguing pistol or rifle maybe ??

    Don't shoot my f. It's become a collector. Got plenty of steyrs and others I like as much.

    Sure would be nice to see the new stuff get here.........

    Oops!

    Sorry bout that, I don't have anything trade worthy and as I said, I'm not in a position to buy. That line should have been a suggestion. I threw it in out of frustration.
