Re: EAA Witness
I have one in 45ACP and it shoots fine and is nicely put together. In defense of the cracked barrel (cracks at vent ports in the barrel) I would add that anytime you drill holes in a vessel with pressure in it (the barrel) you add a stress riser to the equation.
But why a clone when you can get the real thing: a real CZ. They are better made and shoot better than the Witness (I have two CZ pistols, CZ75B 40S&W with a 22 Kadet conversion and the CZ97 in 45ACP). All CZ stuff is better than the average of all the other guns out there and priced well, too. I particularly like their rifles ( I have them in 22 Hornet, 30-06, 17HM2, 308). The only reason I bought the Witness was that CZ's were not being imported at the time.
