miche turner: Good stuff shep, I like these guns especially the 10mm which are about as
close to a bren 10 as you can get. Very unusual and nice that you can have
it roostered and locked, most DA/SA pistols its strickly a deroosterer/DA mode
for the first shot.
FullmetalFMJ: Very nice gun. I've seen alot of people use these in competitions at the
range I go to. They are solid.
1957Shep: Thanks for watching.
1957Shep: If you are expecting them to be a Colt or a Kimber, they are not. But for
the price tag, they are very good pistols. As an example, think Taurus as
opposed to Smith & Wesson.
SmokinGun55: That's a really nice pistol. I must admit that I've never heard of the
manufacturer before but I'm sure going to be aware of it in the future.
Thanks for sharing.
hot2warm: Can I get a Witness!!
Lenore Lewis: I have had a Witness 10mm for about six years! Not a problem to date. I can
shoot anything with it, not a hipcup. I have a couple of twelve round mags.
I can also shoot Underwood full loads out of this, "cheap gun," something I
can not do with my beloved Colt Delta Elite in 10mm. I can swap out my
current bbl, and put in a 9, or 40 caliber, etc. Like I said, no problem
with my Witness. It would be smart to pick up one or two, given the gouging
presently going on with the higher end guns!
1957Shep: Thanks. Just watched your Holloween Rat video. Got a kick out of it. Nice
looking Ruger you had in it.
spookypunky: Holy crap! I thought it was Mr. Rogers!
1957Shep: I own a couple of CZs myself. They make good firearms. An old CZ70 32
pistol and one of their modern 22 bolt action rifles. Have not used either
of them in a video yet.
KYTO82: Shep Nice pistol can't wait to see what's next!
1957Shep: Your local dealer can likely order one pretty easy. Unless they have
changed springs since I got my 10mm Witness, I would recomend changing out
the recoil spring for a heavier one. The spring that came in mine was a
little weak for full power 10mm loads.
Half Yankee: did my time during the cold war and took advantage of all they had to offer
- deep discounts - CZ owner since 1987
1957Shep: EAA is an importer. This gun is actually made by Tanfoglio in Italy.
1957Shep: These guns seem to be made in more configurations than even 1911s are. From
basic ones like this one all the way up to high end single action race
Half Yankee: That’s what a communist gets for never getting a patent nice review sir
1957Shep: Look for it in the next couple of days. Kind of a rough old beast. 92 years
old (made 1920) and poorly refinished, but still a decent shooter.
1957Shep: They are good guns for the money. I have 3 of these pistols. Also have a
full size 10mm and a compact 10mm.
1957Shep: They are fairly common pistols. They are imported by EAA. Made by Tanfoglio
of Italy. I got this one close to 20 years ago at a local gun shop. Have
since got two more of them in 10mm. A full size and a compact.
1957Shep: I have 3 of these Witness pistols myself. This 9mm and a pair of 10mms. A
full size and a compact. Finally got around to doing videos with them last
weekend, but have not uploaded them yet. Want to scatter them out a little
instead of uploading a batch of videos all at once. Probably have them
posted within a couple of weeks.
1957Shep: Thanks for watching.
WASR Ten: I love the chrome finish. These psitols are tough as tanks. Thanks for the
HrntFixr: that is a good looking weapon sir! Thanks!
TheCrewchief01: Sweet pistol!
TheShermandale: Nice one, my friend.
1957Shep: It`s pretty common. Make a couple of minor design changes and you can get
away with it.
bud1014: I want a 10mm version!
revolver8shot: How are EAA as far as durability?
1957Shep: Never had the chance to shoot one of the single actions. Have heard they
are really slick.
1957Shep: I`ve got several videos done and ready to upload. Just spacing them out a
little. How about a S&W model of 1905 in 32-20?
Mr1MOA: Hey man, I'm about ready to pickup a EAA Witness 9mm Full size steel made
in the 1980, what do you think.........should I get it?? Yours is nice with
the wonder finish, the one I'm considering is the standard blue carbon
1957Shep: You`re welcome.
avgguy47: Thank you sir and excellent video as always! You are too kind!
1957Shep: I`ve been called a lot worse things. :)
1957Shep: They are a good pistol for the price tag. It`s not a Sig or a Colt, but
it`s a decent pistol. I own 3 of them. This one in 9mm, a full size 10mm,
and a compact 10mm. Both the full size guns ran flawless out of the box.
The compact had a few fits breaking in, but it ran well after about the 1st
100 rounds. I did replace the recoil springs on both of the 10mms. Seemed a
little light for full power 10mm loads. The 9mm eats any bullet weight, but
gets better accuracy with 115gr bullets.
KYTO82: Sounds like one I'd love to see!
1957Shep: I`ve got a pair of these in 10mm. A full size and a compact. Have not used
them in a video yet, but I will get around to it eventually.
1957Shep: Have had no problems with any of the 3 that I own. (also have a full size
and compact 10mm) But I have not put large numbers of rounds through any of
them. Over the years I`ve maybe put 1,500 rounds through the 9mm. A lot
less on the 10mms. I did change out the recoil springs on both 10mms. The
springs seemed weak for full power loads.
