I was working in Abu Dhabi, UAE, in 2009 for the Emirati Air Force and went to a military exposition. There was a Caracal booth to introduce the new pistol that was being manufactured in the UAE. I actually met the designer who is Austrian I think (I threw away the brochures), but I think he designed a Sig model. Bottom line is they bought the best engineering money could buy and it has multiple options for sights, triggers and safeties. The designer was very happy with the company because they gave him great latitude to build the gun he always wanted to design. I went to a shooting range in the basement of the Military Officers Club and shot it. I was very impressed with the quality and found the quick acquisition sight to be pretty good, though I didn't think it was great. They also bought the best machines money could buy to do the manufacturing. The whole program was very impressive. While at the exposition there were some retired British soldiers who were working in the Emirati Army and they had fired them and were very impressed and happy to have them as their new side arm. The company reps said they should be available in the US by summer 2010 but when I asked at Impact Arms they had never heard of them, so they are a couple of years behind schedule.
