Caracal claims their polymer-framed pistol, designed by a team led by Austrian Wilhelm Bubits, is the most simple in the world with a total of just 28 parts. Most of those parts are contained in a modular unit that pulls out of the polymer frame. The internal rails travel nearly the whole length of the slide to avoid frame flex and promote accuracy. The metal magazine holds 18 rounds of 9mm ammo. The magazine catch is ambidextrous, and there is no manual safety or decocker. The trigger incorporates a Glock-style safety which combines with two other internal safeties to make the gun drop safe. The loaded chamber indicator looks similar to the Walther P99 type. There is no magazine safety, so the Caracal will fire a chambered round with its magazine removed.
