Cara­cal USA will intro­duce three new guns at this week at the much antic­i­pat­ed SHOT Show in Las Vegas, to include two tac­ti­cal rifles and the much antic­i­pat­ed Enhanced F mod­el pis­tol.

The Enhanced F is an updat­ed take on the company’s stan­dard F series, which was side­lined in 2012 after a safe­ty recall. The Enhanced F series sticks with the 9mm, strik­er-fired poly­mer design. Fea­tur­ing a bar­rel length of 4 inch­es with over­all slide length mea­sur­ing 7 inch­es, the Enhanced F weighs in at just over 1 pound.

The pis­tol comes equipped with a rail inter­face sys­tem for lights, laster and oth­er acces­sories. In addi­tion, it uti­lizes an ergonom­ic design with intu­itive grip angle and an ambidex­trous mag­a­zine catch.

The biggest upgrade to the Enhanced F series is its redun­dant safe­ty sys­tem. The orig­i­nal F series recall relat­ed to an alleged defect that made it pos­si­ble for the gun to fire if dropped onto a hard sur­face. It looks like Cara­cal is address­ing this safe­ty con­cern by intro­duc­ing a whole new safe­ty sys­tem that con­sists of an inte­grat­ed trig­ger safe­ty, fir­ing pin safe­ty and drop safe­ty.

Cara­cal Direc­tor of Mar­ket­ing Jae Gillen­tine said in a state­ment the new pis­tol will be both user friend­ly and “will hold up to the rig­ors of tough envi­ron­ments.”

Lis­ten­ing to our cus­tomers and incor­po­rat­ing their feed­back, we’ve com­plete­ly rede­fined the Cara­cal F pis­tol. The Enhanced F is designed to per­form and it’s evo­lu­tion brings with it many of the impor­tant fea­tures and upgrades that today’s shoot­ers have come to expect from a world-class prod­uct,” she said

Retail­ing for $599, the Enhanced F ships with two 18 or 10-round mag­a­zines, a clean­ing kit, cable lock and instruc­tion man­u­al in a plas­tic car­ry case.

In addi­tion to the Enhanced F pis­tol, Cara­cal also announced two new tac­ti­cal rifles.

The CAR814 A2 is a gas oper­at­ed, direct impinge­ment rifle cham­bered in 5.56. Designed for mil­i­tary and law enforce­ment appli­ca­tions, the rifle is avail­able in semi-auto­mat­ic and select fire con­fig­u­ra­tions. Fea­tur­ing a 16 inch bar­rel, the rifle mea­sures just over 36 inch­es with the stock ful­ly extend­ed. With­out the includ­ed 30 round mag­a­zine, the CAR814 A2 tips the scales at an even 7 pounds.

The rifle is equipped with Mag­pul fur­ni­ture to allow shoot­ers to con­fig­ure the gun to fit spe­cif­ic mis­sion needs. The rifle also includes a two point quick detach sling and flip-up rear sight.

The CAR814 A2 comes in at $1,300.

Round­ing out the new good­ies from Cara­cal is the CAR816 A2. Also cham­bered in 5.56 this rifle fea­tures a short-stroke, push rod gas pis­tol oper­at­ing sys­tem. Also avail­able in semi-auto­mat­ic and select-fire con­fig­u­ra­tions, the CAR816 A2 offers var­i­ous bar­rel lengths to include a 10.5 inch CQB, 14.5 inch car­bine and 16 inch infantry rifle.

Equipped with a pro­pri­etary hand guard, the CAR816 A2 allows for user mod­i­fi­ca­tion using the M-Lok attach­ment sys­tem. The upper receiv­er and hand guard offer a full length 1913 Picain­ny rail for direct mount­ed optics or oth­er shoot­ing acces­sories.

Shipped with a  quick detach slide, clean­ing kit, one 30 round mag and front and rear flip-up sights, the rifle retails for $1,850.
