    hello All
    i have the EAA witness 9mm which i call a tanfoglio.
    put 550 rounds through it so far with one stovepipe during rapid firing, maybe my hold was loose? maybe not. that was around round 130.
    its the full size and fits like a glove. at the gun show i paid 300.00$ w/one mag brand new in box.
    very accurate even in my paws.
    sorry dont know about the 40.
    good luck

    we'll 50 rnd through it today , in FTE on a reload that i was sus on in the first place , my first none function , my fault i dropped 3-4 rounds while reloading a mag and then dropped my tool box on the dropped ammo so wont blame the gun for now ...

    got more mag's coming , but i cant really fault the gun so far , its accurate , light , and legal , gotta be happy with that eh

    Jim i do prefer the lines on yours than my own the closer together give it a more 1911 look ( imo) but i do like my two tone look and besides its got me a deer and two roo's so far and about 15 bunnies with the .22 kit ! and a heap of time just enjoying punching holes in various items and pic's

    Jack, congrats - I had the first 40SW Witness in the United States, was a great shooter. Can you legally get the 9mm conversion kit, too?

    Jack, reading your post from six months ago :D, what if any reasoning was used by the powers that be over there to ban .45 acp but allow .40 S&W? I could at least understand if they said "no high power handguns" but other than being a bit heavier round, the .45 is so much slower than the .40 that it makes no sense to me to ban it but allow the .40.

    some idiot lady came up with the ruling based on her arts degree..

    .50 cal rifles banned in most states too , but they let me have my custom .416 in che tac ( almost twice the range and damage of a .50 BMG )

    they say .45 is too big and not needed , ok so for my platform i choose .40

    both out gun whats banned , but the bans where not made by folks who know guns , they only know socialist rhetoric , suites me

    i can get the 9mm kit too but they changed the rules so the kit counts as a gun now ( recent change )

    Thanks!

    This is my .40 Witness Match at 30 yards with the first 200 bullets shot from it. I just got my sights and firing pin today along with my trigger springs. No regrets buying this gun at a show...
