Caracal International, the first state-owned firearm manufacturer in the Arab world, has signed an important deal in Italy, announced Saeed Al Shamsi, Commercial Director of Caracal.

The Abu Dhabi-based company, a subsidiary of the Tawazun Holding, has started operations on the competitive civilian and law enforcement markets opening an export line to Italy.

"The first lots of pistols will be shipped shortly after IDEX 2009. We are currently evaluating demonstrations to more police and military tenders in Europe. We trust that this fact itself will soon cause quite a stir in the semiautomatic pistol market of the old continent," Al Shamsi added.

Caracal LLC grabbed the IDEX visitors' attention once again this year by introducing the sub-compact 9mm caliber pistol the Caracal SC, another innovative design by Wilham Bubits, the Austrian Director of R'&'D and chief designer of the Abu Dhabi company, already known in the international industry for his major contributions. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
