    Anyone have experience with EAAs new offerings like the P Match Pro? I’m thinking about getting one in 38 Super. High capacity 38 Super pistols are rare as hens teeth ;)

    Nothing to offer, except if I ever win the lottery this is going to be high on my list.

    Luckily they can be had for around $580.00.

    I have quite a few Witness pistols, some high end, some low end, but I don't have that particular one. 38 Super is the only Witness caliber that has 25rd factory mags (sorta) available....and they actually work. They are available from time to time when a fresh batch arrives from overseas. They run $141 each.

    Good to know. Kinda pricy for mags though.

    That's just for the 25 rounders. The 17/18 round retail for $40, but you can get them for less than that.

    I've a reliable Witness Match Elite 10mm. It's strong enough to withstand 760 ft-lbs reloads of mine (saw plastic delamination on a G20 I used to have). So it's here to stay.

    But I don't have any other caliber gun from them.

    Thx for the reply. If it can hold up to top shelf 10mm, then 38 Super should be no problem.

    LOL.

    Cases eject about 65 ft in the 4 o'clock direction, actually very tight distribution. And lower recoil than a G20 because the barrel sits lower than in Glock design.

    If you reload, 38 Super can be pretty stout itself. Straight from the VihtaVuori manual, 10.9gr of N105 will toss a 124gr bullet from my 6" Witness at 1641fps. It does 1480fps from my 4.75" barrel and 1503fps from my 5" Kimber.

    At the NRA convention in Atlanta I spent a lot of time at the EAA booth.
    I love the product line, color combinations, designs they offer.
    Its definitely on the buy list.

    I have a Stock 2, not sure if you mean specifically plastic, or Witnesses in general. It's the best DA/SA platform for me.

    They shoot well. Quality has improved. I just don't care much for them.

    I have the least expensive Witness pistol (PS series) and it is a shooter.
    Their best or higher end models should be great.

    [email protected] out of a 4.75” barrel (603pds energy) is very impressive. 17 rounds of 9x23 performance!
