I really believe this is a gun is a "sleeper". It doesn't get much print from the main stream media, But having purchased it at this very reasonable price and shot over 500 rounds thru it .I can't find fault with the firearm. It is large and heavy which attributes to its accuracy at hitting man-size targets at 50 yards!! The size may prohibit Concealed Carry but its nice to know that Government standards of under 5"holds true under 25 yards If you are looking for a large capacity .45 ,well built and comfortable to shoot with Double action capability you needn't spend $800-$1000 . Clear sighting, solid grips and beaver-tail design allow quick second shots. Some of the best of the 1911 has enabled Witness to produce a fine firearm. - L. O.
