As long as we’re discussing the latest Caracal USA firearms, we might as well also mention the Caracal CAR 816, which is a short-stroke gas piston/op-rod, or “pushrod”, system tactical AR-15 carbine with 3-position gas block and all the modern features/accoutrements, including an M-LOK tactical handguard/rail system and optional anodized or Cerakote coating/finish. The CAR-816 featured in DefenseReview’s (DR) video below sports a Wilcox Industries RAPTAR-Lite ES civilian-legal visible laser aimer/pointer, variable-focus IR (InfraRed) illuminator and tactical white light module mounted on the top rail, forward of the Trijicon ACOG combat optic.

The Caracal CAR 816 appears to be well-executed and appointed. The end-user has three barrel length options: 10.5″, 14.5″ and 16″. The CAR-816 is also offered in both semi-auto-only and select-fire/full-auto configurations.
