Default EAA 9mm?

Anyone have one?

Can anyone comment on the basics: accuracy, reliability, etc.

Are you talking about the "Witness" line?

If so, they're very similar to CZs in design and function. Quality can be spotty and customer service is so-so. I've had a couple myself and they were OK guns. A real CZ is a better bet for the long haul...

It's a CZ knock-off... get the real thing!

I have a Witness in 10mm. Very accurate, 100% reliable and built like a tank. Outstanding value Handgun. Thay are made by Tanfoglio in Italy and they are a world class manufacturer.

Tanfoglio is one of the best CZ75 clones out there... in here the Tanfoglio Force (polymer frame) is one of the most popular guns, even some police departments has been issued with this guns... they are good quality and well priced. The only complaint I heard is in large calibers with metal frame (.45 & 10mm), some guns with this characteristics has suffer from cracks in their frames. And in some old models have FTF because defective magazines (the ones with orange followers) but I suppose that issue was solved already -that problem was like 5 years ago- Otherwise they are great guns.

The Witness Steel 10mm pistol is what I am interested in.

It definitely has a good price but I would like to find a forum
where a lot of EAA owners are concentrated to see how
well the pistols are holding up.

If the pistol is pretty well made it will hold up and customer
service should not be needed much.

Can't advise on the witness. But can on EAA. I own a Bounty Hunter in 45 colt, and a windicator in 357 mag. Obviously both are revolvers. But awesome guns. Pretty heavy though. But I would put the Bounty Hunter up against my S&W 586 for acuracy any day!

I've had an EAA Witness in 45 ACP for 12+ years--used it for USPSA because of the 10 round mag. Very accurate--reliable with round nose--some SWC have problems (can happen with any 45), but I've found reload recipes that work great with 200 gr SWCs. Very pleasant to shoot. I also had one of the original EAAs in 40 S&W--had problems with it, but since they've changed that to a larger frame (originally used the 9mm frame size I believe), I think there are no longer issues. You can find a Witness 45ACP/22 combo for somewhere near $500--a great deal.

I have one and so do two of my friends. None of us are easy on our guns and we don't shy away from LONG sessions at the range. They hold up just fine.

A have been shooting a 9mm Witness for a couple of year. Great gun - very accurate, feels great, and the price was very right. I've shot +p ammo in it and have had 0 problems.

I've heard rumors of cracked frames, especially in the 10mm version, since before I got 9mm, but I've never heard from anyone who has actually suffered this problem. The Tanfoglio 10mm was beefed up about 4 years ago (stiffer spring?), so there probably were problems in the past.

Eaa owners seem to be a quieter bunch and I've never found a forum that mentions them unless someone asks a question. I take the quietness to indicate total satifaction.
