Caracal, a leading small arms manufacturer, is showcasing a unique ‘Spirit of the Emirates’ pistol and a collection of superior custom hunting rifles at the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (Adihex 2022). 
Chambered in 9x19mm Luger, the pistol features 24 carat gold-inlay engraving and plating. Arabic calligraphy forming the shape of a falcon is engraved on the slide, with the word Caracal in Arabic engraved on the upper frame. 
The muzzle, trigger, magazine, magazine release, slide stop, hammer, ejection port, tang and grip screw are gold plated, with an aerospace alloy frame grip and high tensile steel slide and upper frame. The pistol is presented in a case made of exotic woods, and a lid encrusted with a ‘Spirit of the Emirates’ logo formed by Diwani calligraphy.
15th appearance
Marking its 15th appearance at the event, which is running from September 26 to October 2 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec), Caracal, an entity within Edge, one of the top 25 advanced technology and defence groups in the world, with the help of its subsidiary Merkel, a German producer of luxury hunting rifles, has unveiled three hand-made Helix Custom hunting rifles featuring arabesque designs, and engravings on the system casing, pistol grip cap and cocking lever. 
The first rifle features the Arabian Caracal, a wild cat native to parts of the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. The second rifle is inspired by the desert landscape of the UAE’s Empty Quarter. The third rifle features the new Museum of the Future in Dubai, also framed with desert scenes. Adding to the elegance of these pieces, the triggers are gold plated and the straight comb, German cheek piece stocks are made from the finest walnut wood from the high regions of the Caucasus.
Hamad Alameri, CEO of Caracal, said: “Our custom hunting rifle display at Adihex has become a tradition over the past few years. Building on the event’s theme of ‘Sustainability and Heritage… A Reborn Aspiration’, we chose to create three uniquely UAE designs that perfectly reflect the heritage and aspirations of our country.”
