EAA witness

Anyone own one? Pros/cons? I am looking for a full size 9mm and I have been a fan of the cz platform. Are parts interchangeable between the two? Are magazines available, looked but couldn't find any.

I have a limited model and love it. As far as parts, I'm not really sure. I'm sure most are interchangable.

Have you priced both the EAA and CZ? It may not be much more to just get the CZ in the first place.

You might also look at Baby Desert Eagle 2. They are really nice and MRI is now part of Kahr.

I was looking for a CZ but I cant seem to find one. Also no luck with finding a baby eagle in 9mm. Have you had good luck finding magazines bac?

I just have the mags that came with it. The Limited model is a little different. Mine is chambered in 38 super.

New issue of Combat Handguns has an article on the Witness in .38 Super. Wouldn't mind trying one myself.

gajones06, you can find some CZ on Gunbroker.

As for parts interchangeable, all I know is they are interchangeable within the maker, some CZ are interchangeable with others CZ however not all models. And the same goes for EAA. My CZ 40B (40S&W) slide will fit on my CZ 75 P-01 (9mm).

The EAA is a great gun for the price.
Pros: Great price (you can still find them for under $500, good quality, CZ Ergo
Cons: can be hard to find locally, No +p ammo, finish (depending on type)

The Baby Eagle is also a great gun for the price.
Pros: Good price, great quality and look, CZ Ergo
Cons: very heavy, no +p ammo

The CZ is am awesome gun and my personal preference between the 3.
Pros: Good price, great quality and look, can handle +p ammo
Cons: Sights are sub-par

I would recommend the CZ 75 P-01 compact or full size.

I got one years ago back when they just came into US. Feeding ramp was awful. Tool marks all across it. I polished them out and gun did not jam once ever since.

I have the 9/22 combo and it's a solid gun; especially for the price. The 22 slide is a little ammo picky but in 9mm configuration it's never had even the slightest issue.

I have had one for over ten years. It started as a .45 and came with a .22 conversion. I added a 10mm top end. It's bee a great gun

I have a 38 Super and it works fine.....now.

I bought it as a new 10mm but rounds would bind up in the mag after about 8 were loaded. I bought 3 more mags....and here is where it gets interesting. The mags come with a note from EAA that says basically, "This magazine may have defects and won't work. If so, tough ****, it's yours." Sure enough, the new mags bound up with eight or so in them.

So, I boxed up the gun and the four mags and sent it all back to EAA for repair. I told them if they couldn't get the 10mm to work, I would settle for a 38 Super with 4 hi-cap mags instead. They sent the gun back converted to 38 Super with 4 mags. The gun works great but accuracy is not very good.

Then I ordered a NEW 9mm barrel from EAA and I received a USED barrel that had a damaged crown. And what was in with the barrel? That same bull**** note about any defects were my problem.

I own an EAA Witness P (a.k.a. Tanfoglio Force).

I purchased it from Cabela's for $299 a few months ago. I figured that for the price, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. My EAA Witness P has been outstanding. The ergonomics fit me just right. The overall design reduces perceived recoil. The DA trigger is very predictable, the SA trigger is very nice.

Well by my standards I got lucky and asked a sales persons and he looked in the back and found a CZ. He offered it at a price I couldn't refuse. The EAA was 560 he sold me the cz 75 B for 459.99. Such a deal I had to take it home... Anyone else think I got a good deal?

That is a sweet looking gun indeed. Not listed on Gunbroker or GunAmerica right now in .38. GA has one in .40 for $875

I bought an EEA Witness Match at the LGS a few year ago in 10mm. This pistol has such a nice clean trigger and shoots so well that I have since added a S&W 1006 and a Kimber Eclipse Custom II in 10mm.

I later found another EEA in 45 Auto of my collection. I haven't got around to adding the caliber conversion units put do plan to add when I can find available.

The best I can explain it is for the price they are a great value. I don't plan to use one for CCW but if I needed to use one to defend home and hearth they will do.

good choice. ill pick a CZ over any CZ copy. honestly, ive fired several EAA pistols, poly and metal. Hit or miss honestly. EAA does not stand by their product, their CS is lackluster for sure. EAA is a ****ty middleman. Im sure some of the high end Tanfoglio guns are nice though.

Wow, all that was left was a kick in your nards. Sounds like they have some HK customer service in them. Too bad they treated you like this.
