I wrote a prior review with great disappointment. I sent the gun back to EAA. They promptly repaired the issue and it runs perfectly with any ammo I have fed it now. The issue was the magazine the gun came with new was defective. They sent me 2 new style magazines and I have to say they are of much better quality. They have earned my respect back. As a side note, the original mag that was faulty had a red follower. The new ones are a black follower and a 17 round capacity and not the original 16 round. Great service and the pistol finally lives up to what i would expect. - M. N.
Great gun and great customer service from EAA. Most accurate pistol I have ever shot, I consistently remove the bullseye from my targets. Picky on ammo, really doesn\'t like weak target ammo or cheap underpowered hollowpoints. - R. H.
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.
Great pistol, very accurate, can't beat the quality for the money. Well built, a bit heavy, but the weight reduces the felt recoil of the .40 to about the kick of a .380, in my opinion. Definately worth buying and carrying. - M. A.
I ordered this pistol and was sent the longer barrel version with the grey wonder finish and rail (the pic shows a short barrel and shiny finish) I opted to keep it. The workmanship is awesome; well constructed pistol. The fit of the slide is tight, but not restricting the function of the gun. I wanted the shiny polished finish, but the wonder finish is certainly growing on me. The weight absorbs the recoil, to me, the .40 feels like shooting a .380. As far as accuracy goes, I was shooting sub 3" group (of 50 rds; hollowpoints- no issues) at 7 yards.; not too bad for the first firing of the gun. The size is a bit bulky for carry, but when the "shiny" finish .40 comes in stock, I will certainly purchase it as well. The magazine is a 15 capacity mag, But I could only load 9-10 rds at a time. I understand this is a new mag and should work itself in as I shoot, but this is a minor issue, I will add this to my carry list. For the price, for a full steel framed gun, you can't beat the price and get this quality workmanship. - M. A.
