EAA Witness in 9mm.....worth it?
 
Looking to scoop up a decent backup target shooter with high cap. Been looking at these for years but never really took one serious. They seem to be a decent value for the money. Looking at the 4.5" barrel and holds 16+1. DA/SA and comes with 3-dot sights. NIB

All this for $345 shipped.

I realize for an extra $150 I could pick up another Glock, Springfield, S&W, etc. I dunno, looking to try something new and expand my palette ya know?

Anyone own or shoot one of these....feedback?

Never handled or shot one, but I'd still say do it. Never read anything negative about the maker, only positive thus far about the specific gun. I'd say do it.

Don't know a whole lot about them. I knew a guy that had one in .45 years ago. He was an avid shooter and said he really liked his.

Look close enough and you will see the resemblence of a CZ-75.

You should do okay with it.

I thought the same thing, same overall shape and interaction of the slide w frame, also has the small height of the slide....the short rail, etc. Also considering the CZ P-07 Duty heavily against this EAA gun. I would REALLY like to own a CZ poly since I dont have the money for a CZ-75B at this time

Its funny how the words of complete online strangers gives me comfort lol...thanks fellas I think I need to take the plunge

I Have The CZ Sp01 and if it shoots anything like it youll be happy especially for $345. Guess the only question I would have would be how long will it hold up ? if your gonna use this at the range your probably gonna put some ammo through it.

EAA pistols share the CZ design feature of the slide riding "inside" the frame instead of outside like most other manufacturers.

This design lowers the bore axis and reduces muzzle flip...similar claim as GLOCK but achieved with a "hammer" gun.

The downside to it is there is a lot less slide to grab should you need to clear a stoppage.

Personally, that's never been a problem for me and my CZ75B is one of the best shooting pistols I own.

I think you'll be happy with ^^THIS^^ pistol...especially at that price!

Tack

Thanks Tack, that was very re-assuring to hear, despite the shallow slide depth which I already took into account. Will likely pick this up in the next couple of days.

I own a Jericho 941/Baby Eagle 9mm that is based on the CZ and EAA design. It is a great shooter and accurate.
