    EAA witness opinions?

    For those of you who own a full size eaa witness pistols what do think of these guns? would you say they are a high quality firearm? Also are these guns cz clones or their own design? I like their wonder finish allot but want feed back before I take the plunge. Also does anyone where a good leather iwb rig can be found for these guns,or what holsters for other guns will fit it? Last thing is could anyone with a witness pistol please post some pics? thanks

    I borrowed a friend's EA Witness 9mm for a few weeks, it wasn't the wonder finish though.
    My impressions were pretty positive, it wouldn't be my first choice for a CCW but as a home SD gun it'd be fine.
    Good, solid gun, a little heavy, nice capacity. Probably one of the smoothest triggers I've ever shot but it was a bit long.
    I liked the cocked and locked option too. Nice sights..
    More affordable version of a CZ I guess you could say.

    I have 2, and they are keepers. Accurate, built like a tank, easy to take apart, and you can change barrels and mags and have another caliber! Oh yea, and reliable!

    Truthfully, my 10mm Witness has a superior trigger pull than my old 75B, but not my CZ-USA tuned 75B Stainless.

    Tanfoglio offers a great gun at a good price, but I'd prefer a CZ in 9mm or .40 before the Witness.

    That said. Because of all the fervor about the 10mm on my forum's
    CZF Clone Club. I bought the Witness 10 for the platform (CZ75-my favorite)
    and the awesome cartridge.

    That was 8 years ago. I've been very happy since day one.

    My friend shoots competitively and his quote is "people in the know consider them sweet shooters". He is a SUPER shooter and has won lots of $$$ and competitions. He has a full size witness in 9mm for "stock shooting" ( I think thats what he calls it). If he shoots one they are good guns!!!

    great guns

    ive shot a witness 9mm that my neighbor owns next to my dreaded ,sigma sw9ve and its a sweet shooter ,nicely made ,feels great in the hand and i hate to say it but my sigma puts its shots dont laugh ,within a 12 inch circle at 15-20 yards once it settles in ,his witness easily halves that 4-6 inches with a few flyers my sigmas getting better i could barely get it on paper when new,its tightening up slowly or im figuring out the trigger.his witness was 349.00 i paid 299.00 minus the 50.00 rebate and 2 free mags,were both happy.

    I owned a Witness .40 for 5 years and loved it. Solid, tight fit and highly accurate. I shot over 5000 rounds without a hiccup. I recently sold it to buy another 1911 - to stay with one platform, one pistol, one caliber. Otherwise, I'd still have it. I can't speak to the CZ, but I am a Witness fan!

    The EAA Witness is a CZ clone. I've held them before but never had a chance to examine one closely or shoot it. You might check full size CZ 75 holsters for fit.

    Don't let the low price fool you. These are nicely finished, accurate, reliable guns.

    Have a 45 Witness for about 5 years. No problems. Doesn't like SWC handloads or Wolf but does fine w/ all other fmj or jhps I 've used. It is as accurate as any handgun I've ever owned(over 40). Little big for cc but a great bedside pistol.

    Easy to take apart? I can't remember the last time you even cleaned a gun let alone take one apart thats why you want me to come home isn't it
    Really the EAA are very nice and very reliable.
