    Just got a new one

    I just received my latest pistol and I believe it will become my primary cc weapon. I bought an EAA Witness in 10 mm. What a beauty. Saturday, I will put it to the test at the range. Anybody have experience with either EAA pistols or 10 mm that care to share their experiences?

    I had one (full-size, blued steel frame and slide) that gave me some problems attributable to bad mags and a rear sight that kept flying off. I traded it and the current owner reports no problems with the gun.

    I now have a full-sized Wonderfinished .38 Super Witness. Outstanding gun.

    The Witnesses are undersprung. The recoil spring's factory rating is 14 Lbs. You should be running at least 20 Lbs. if you are firing full-power loads from companies like Doubletap Ammo or Buffalo Bore. That is the recoil spring weight I ran in mine with a Springco Recoil Reducer from Allan Dugger (very nice guy!). The set up made for a very light recoiling 10mm.

    Good to know about the recoil spring. Know of a vendor for replacement?

    10mm, huh? Bucks like a mule and is twice as ugly! J/K! 10mm is a good round...if you can find full house 10mm ammo! I personally would rather have a .45 or .40 just as well though.

    The nice thing about this pistol is that it has conversions available for other calibers. If I (and I do) want a .40 cal conversion, I only need to buy the barrel (for less than $100 other calibers (9mm, 45, 38 super or .22lr) conversions are available for about $200 (conversion includes barrel, slide and mag.) I expect soon that this one frame will host a variety of calibers. I'll keep you posted.
