Witness 38 super Owners - Your Opinions
Looking for feedback from EAA/Tangfolio Witness owners. I have been considering one of the Witness full-size steel pistols in either 10mm or 38 super for quite some time. Since selling my Colt 38 super to finance a different firearm, I have the craving for another 38 super and considering the Witness.
4. Overall Quality

Regarding the Witness 38 Super-I have a Witness Ltd and have had the regular service type gun in 38 super-observations are:
1. Reliability is superb
2. Accuracy you have to work at. It has the same problems as the Browning Hi-Power- No adjustable link and no barrell bushing. I finally got
my limited to keep all the rounds (except the first flyer) in the 9-10 ring shooting from a rest at 25 yards with open sites. The barrel boring is huge .357 and I use ..357 bullets.
3. Because the barrel is only retained in by the slide stop pin you are limited on how hot your loads are. Being primarily a steel shooter I load a 158 gr bullett behind 4 grains of titegroup for 1000 fps with no problems. Making major it will break-remember it was designed as a 9mm gun.

1 Reliability perfect
2 accuracy very good which I also find in my Brownings Hipowers, guess milage varies
3. Pistol is well made and solid a little on the heavy side with verry light recoil.
4 with factory or factory level reloads gun should last forever, DR Middlebrook and several of his students including the reigning 2 time IDPA national champ have run and run and run the Witness like in the 3-6 hundred round a week range for several years .Although he has switched to an STI, durable they are.
5. the factory rear fixed sight is pretty junky it works but sticks up pretty high and just doesnt asthetically fit the gun. You are probably gonna need a trigger job but most factory guns do.
