Default Caracal pistols. BEWARE!

You better use eye protection. I heard this morning of a shooter who had a case flying straight to the eye like it happened to me. He was fortunately wearing protective goggles.

That came after I have had two calls from people who have tested the pistols they just received and experienced the same malfunctions I experienced with the batch of pistols I tested..

Unhappy Erratic ejection?

Never had such problems with the 9x21mm CARACAL pistols here in Italy... possibly an issue with the first batch sold in France?

You Tube videos..

( and I have seen two private videos of european demos that show the same thing, cases flying just above the head of the shooter)

The lesson: always wear your safety glasses. Heck, I've had .22 casings end up in my Remington 870 (action open on my shooting table, to be fair) - you never know how or where a casing is going to end up.

Although overly enthusiastic ejection is not a good thing...

My Walther P 22 throws casings up and to the rear. Right about level with my face.

Walther P-99/ Walther P-22/ Caracal = same designer (Wilhelm Bubits), almost same system.
