    Just checking here at the forum to see if anyone has got their shipping box yet from Caracal.
    I am talking about the box to send your recalled Caracal in for a replacement Caracal not a check.
    I am really starting to get heated with no email replies from Caracal.
    It is really bad business to blow off customers that like your product.
    Would it be too much to ask for a Dam email reply?

    Well I just got off the phone a little while ago and got some answers.
    A nice Lady answered the phone and gave me some info.
    All of the guns are here in the USA. They are going through customs.
    It is taking so long because there are 10,000 of them. They (Caracal) should have them in 1-3 weeks.
    When they get them they will then ship out the over night shipping boxes.
    After they receive our guns back from us they will do all the paper work and put it into their computers.
    It could take between 1-2 weeks for them to do this.
    Then they will ship our new guns to us at our home address.
    It looks like we will have our guns by March.

    Two Guns...I noticed on their website they've got some different colored guns. Do you think we can request one of those or is this strictly a "black for black" trade? I know that I can call them but I'm often too busy at work to do so.

    I think our guns are already picked for us. They will have the same serial number and sight setup. So I don't think we can change colors.

    I doubt they will have the same serial number. That would mean they would have to destroy the original guns to avoid duplication, rather than refurbish/repair and then resell them. The economics would make a bad situation even worse for them. There is no BATF requirement for a replacement to have the same number.

    That is what the Lady at Caracal told me. So maybe she is wrong but that is what she told me.

    Thats pretty much the story i got too. But they didnt mention of anything about the serial # to me. I know it cant get here soon enuff! A guy on their facebook page also said the ones who have opted for a replacement also gets a free hat and shirt and 2 extra mags and 15% of an accesories purchase. :D

    WOW. I am a FFL dealer and at Shot Show I was told by the CFO that ALL replacements will be shipped to customers att he beginning of February, and that my order of 30 guns would be shipped to me in March. It would appear that is not the case anymore...

    That is weird now that I think of it. Caracal sent me my email Feb 4 and said they will be sending them out at the end of Feb and MidwestSpecial got his Jan 30. Some thing is not right here.

    I'm sure that there is a batch process for getting everything through. Yours must be in a different batch.

    I sent my gun Nov 16. They thought I wanted a refund when I didn't. Straightened out. Called yesterday, told by nice lady they have received 500 guns from Customs and are "testing the triggers" to make sure they are like the original. Should ship in 2 weeks. Also, serial numbers will be new.
