I recently took a training at the gun range and came across a EAA .40 what do y'all think of this pistol ? Is there any know problems with this model ? It was the full size Witness .40. Thank you

They are pretty decent pistols. I have a Witness Elite Match in .45, it's a keeper.
The positives:
Accurate & reliable and it looks good.
Essentially a copy of the proven CZ design.
The fact that you can order caliber conversion kits is attractive too.

The negatives:
EAA CS has developed a reputation for douchiness on occasion. OTOH, I've not needed anything from them.
They aren't really that popular. Fine, you say? Accessories and parts aren't growing on trees. When you do find stuff, it's not cheap.
They have experienced price creep. Screaming bargain? Not as much as they used to be. There are some good pistols sharing their price range. Stoeger Cougar comes to mind.

I had an elit match also . very accurate with the option of buying other upper kits in 5 differnt calibers too. Way to heavy for carry but a heck of a match /range pistol.

I'd take my elite match over anything in its price range. Great gun. I've got the 10mm and it shoots like a dream. It really doesn't get much better at that cost, and I've paid more for less pistol. As for accessories, what is there? It's got a pic rail, and there's plenty of sights and grips for it.

I was looking at them in 10mm. I've seen a lot of people say the frames crack on them to often to trust it in the 10mm.
People do talk. But I've run a pretty good amount of the 165gr "hot" stuff (like underwood) through mine. No trouble. A recoil spring upgrade and a Henning's cone fit guide rod are cheap and lessen frame stress.

Older pistols broke more often not so much with the new ones. You do still need to up the weight of the recoil spring if shooting hotter ammo. Thats something some don't do and they can pay for it.
