EAA Hunter 6"

I have no idea if this is a good deal so don't shoot the messenger

I just thought I'd give you guys a heads up in case it is a good deal:

I'm always a bit leery of 10mms from EAA, though I know they have improved over the years.

I've handled a couple that have passed through the LGSs around here, but they just don't do anything for me.

That's aside from the fact that it's a Tanfoglio product.

BTW, EAA is just the importer, although if there's ever a problem you'd have to go to them for what allegedly passes for "customer service."

I owned one. It was their Witness Limited in 10mm. It was beautiful and felt great BUT it did not hold up shooting loads 1150-1200 FPS. IT fortunately carried Davidson's lifetime guaranty. Each successive replacement had different issues, feeding, etc. I finally gave up and sold the 3rd new gun they sent me. Others have said they ran perfect.

Doesn't surprise me.

If by "perfect" they mean 1 gun out of 7 ... ... well, I guess that's "perfect" by Tanfoglio standards.

I have a ss witness 10mm, got it because I was curious of the caliber and was on the inexpensive side. 400 rounds of underwood, which seems to be ones on the hotter side. Flawless and a breeze to shoot. I have a friend that had load for me, flawless again. Mine is the later model where the slide was beefed up.
Whith that said, for that kind of money, I would look somewhere else.

I love mine and have owned just a few 10's:

The 10 Ring

As a matter of fact, they are the only ones I have kept except the 1006. The Match that I had which started it all had a ton of BOMBS put through it without any issues.

I have a Witness Limited in 38 Super that's been great. I just never wanted a 10mm model.

I guess they have gotten better.

From what I've gathered around the 'net it was specifically the Wonder Finish models in 10mm that had slide and/or frame problems. I've only owned the one you refer to--the 10mm Witness Hunter, all steel. Near as I can tell after only 5,000 rnds or so, it's by far one of the best-built auto pistols I've come across and I wouldn't hesitate to own another one. I think it was a bargain at $1,150.

My only complaint is the adjustable rear sight isn't the tightest, it appears to me the sight assembly itself retains the pin block spring, and the trigger has quite a bit of side-to-side play. So far these seem to be aesthetic issues, but they are places for improvement. I think it's a beautiful pistol in terms of workmanship, fit and finish overall, and have fired a fair bit of heavy duty handload through it. I don't shoot undocumented commercial handloads, so I don't know if it can stand up to the punishment of consistently overloaded ammo or not. Not much interested.

For a 15+1 all-steel machined pistol with gorgeous finish and superb accuracy, not sure where I'd go to get anything remotely close for $1,100. I think it could be improved and still be in the same price ballpark, like every gun I own.
