Anyone know about pistols made by EA Witness? I was looking at getting one. It was 10mm 8rnd semiauto for $340.That seemed cheap. Can they hold up to a couple thousand rounds or do they fall apart?

EAA is the name of the importer.
Witness is the name of the line of pistols.
Tanfoglio is the name of the manufacturer.

Seem to be decent guns for the money. Have noticed a number of IDPA shooters using them in these parts. May require a bit of tinkering to get best functioning but everyone I've talked to seems happy with them.

I had a steel-framed 9mm Witness, and I loved it! The grip made it the most comfortable pistol I've ever held. I don't know about the polymer-framed ones, but the steel frame gave mine enough weight to make recoil almost non-existant. It would also feed just about anything, even HPs. You do have to make sure the rails between the frame and slide are lubed, though. The steel-framed guns are a little on the heavy side, but the up-side is that if you have to, you can beat the unholy hell out of whover breaks in, should you run dry. CDNN also has factory hi-cap mags fairly cheap for them, too (for the 9mm, I mean).

I've got a stainless one in 9mm. I love it; as with Zardoz, I've got to say its one of the most comfortable pistols I've ever held; it just seems to fit my hand perfectly. Its based off the CZ75 which is one of the all time great pistol designs. I don't know about the 10mm model though. Unless its been upgraded and built up a bit to handle the increased pressures of the 10mm, I think I'd stick with the 9mm.

I don't know at al about the 10mm. But I had a 45 which I used in IPSC. After I got it broke in the first 500 rounds or so never had a peoblem. The first 500 or so it stovepiped every couple of mags or so. Then I put about 5000-6000 rounds through it, never had a burp, a hickup, nothing, it just shot. All in all I was pleased with it. I would still have this gun, but my brother wanted to take a look at it so he bought it from me. I'll get it back some day.
