Re: EAA Witness
Before the government allowed CZ to import guns (Czech made, behind Iron Curtain) I bought a TZ75 Italian Tanfoglio clone of the CZ75. It is the only gun I had to trash can in 25 years of shooting. FEI, the importer, went out of business and no parts were available and I need a new slide. The metal was soft and the firing pin retaining plate destroyed the back of the slide.
When EAA brought out the Witness I found it too was a Tanfoglio product so was reluctant to buy one but I still could not get a real CZ. When it appeared that Tanfoglio had changed, based on reports from users, I bought the 45ACP version. It is a very nice gun and does not have the durability problems of my earlier FEI import. Within a year after that CZ started importing guns (Iron Curtain fell) so I bought the CZ95, a 45ACP version of the CZ75.
I have shot both guns side by side for comparison. They are both big guns but for some reason the Witness fits my hand a tiny bit better (??). Both are accurate. Both triggers feel the same in let off. Both are accurate. They are both so good I'll not sell either one.
But some who report here say that some Witness CZ clones are really good and others not so much (??). I don't know about that. Mines a real keeper!
