EAA Witness steel compact 45ACP opinions?
« on: December 16, 2019, 08:41:17 AM »
LGS has a Witness steel compact in 45ACP @ $399. Looks interesting and little used, if any.

Any thoughts on these? Quality, durability, issues?

Thanks for any help/opinions.

They're probably okay, I'm just not a fan of really Compact .45's and prefer the Full Size Steel .45 Witnesses.
As I've been able to conceal carry a full size .45 Witness, there's not been much incentive to go Compact on a .45.
I have owned three Compact .45's in the past and keeping them running was a challenge.

I do have an old Tanfoglio Series 88 TA90B Compact, bought new, that's been absolutely stellar, and I took an IDPA Match with it, a long time ago.
Were I in the market for a Compact Carry Pistol, I would un-hesitantly go 9mm.

I have one in stainless steel that is accurate and runs with all types of ammo.
Nice pistol.
SHUT UP AND RELOAD!

I’ll agree w/ Jwc007. Had some issues with my witness compact 45. Feed and ejection issues. Why I got rid of mine. Have Zero issues with the full-size 45 tho, for some reason.
