    Thumbs up Witness P .45

    Hey it's about time someone other than me took a close look at these guns. I have a Compact P .45 and just love it. It's not to heavy and feels good in my hand. Being the compact, it has a 8 rd mag but if you can't hit him in 8 rds... ...RUN!!! No seriously, it's a great gun. Mine shoots well and I've had no malfunctions of any kind. Check out this website... http://www.savvysurvivor.com I've heard that they're closed down but the site is still up. There is a section on firearm reviews that has alot of good info on Witness pistols. You know that they're made in Italy by Tanfoglio. Also go to the EAA website and under parts you'll find caliber conversion kits.
    The Tanfoglio's compare in accuracy to high end 1911's and in price to Taurus'. In Europe, Witnesses are widely used as competition guns and comped barrel and slide assy's are available. They are highly valued for their ease of caliber change.

    Like the old Alka Seltzer commercial said... ..."Try it, you'll like it!"
    I did, and I do!!!

    Eaa

    I own the full size in 10mm and bought the conversion barrel for .40 cal.
    Both are a pleasure to shoot. The pistol is solid and reliable.
    I have no trouble carrying this one IWB.

    Thanks guys, it is so hard to find any people that have these guns, and even harder to find a shop that has them.

    Here they are on GD:

    They really seem well received. Never shot one myself though.
    Like this dude even said:

    I would put my witness 10mm against a sig, h/k x/d and whatever the hell else is out there. Like alot of people I had some reservations because of the price.

    As John Travolta would say, "that's a bold statement my friend."

    Hope this helps,

    I wonder how difficult repair or maintenance would be.. Or whether the parts or mags are interchangeable with CZ's?

    There reasonably nice...I dint get to shoot it but I saw a Guy at the range shoot about 200 rounds through one the day I got my XD and it worked flawlessly. I’m not a big fan of the shallow slide (not sure that is the write vernacular but the distance height of the slide is very short) but other than that seams like a nice gun.

    Yeah the "inverted" or "reverse" slide threw me off a bit until I realized how their slide mounts inside the frame, rather than about everything else.. kinda cool I think. (yeah I already admitted in another thread I'm becoming a CZ fan).

    To contribute to the confusion and conflicting opinions.. In this gunblast.com article about the Baby Eagle (IMI built Mag Research CZ copy), the author references the CZ, EEA Witness and states the IMI baby eagle is the superior copy of a CZ).... But that's one reviewer's opinion for what it's worth.

    "The CZ 75 pistol was difficult to come by in America but the Tangfoglio clones from Italy were widely available beginning in the 1980s. These pistols varied considerably in quality, fit and finish. The EAA Witness is now the most common and is generally a reliable pistol. However, most shooters agree the Baby Eagle is the superior CZ clone and the only pistol of the type other than the original to have seen extensive military and police service."
