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!!!
