The Walther P-99 was indeed engineered by Wilhelm Bubits.

The Walther P-22 was instead conceived by Wolfram Kriegleder, the guy who's now leading ISSC Handels GmbH in Austria.

Default Re: Caracal pistols. BEWARE!

I would be very interested in any reference linking Wilhelm Bubits and the P 99. Thanks.

I'll dig on my magazine's issues dated back to the first release of the gun and get back when I'll have some concrete evidence about it.

In the meanwhile, will you be at the SHOT Show next week?

Default Re: Caracal pistols. BEWARE!

Nope, I am busy closing the company. Even more than when I opened it.
The fact that I had around 300 customers that I could not satisfy is the last nail in the coffin. (added to a few hundred more for another weapon that will not be sold in France )
The batch of Caracal pistols delivered to France have been sent back to UAE from what was said to some very dissatisfied customer who complained to Nobel Sport, the official importer.
Then the french market is nowhere near the dynamism of the italian market. Some historically important players in this market are about to go belly up from what I learned.

So, the lesson I learned is that there is a time it is better to quit at the right moment.
