Update EAA Witness 10mm full-size: Even after the changes mentioned in my last post, it eventually got worse. The .45 follower wouldn’t keep the slide open after the last shot. Not that I got that far very often. I was so disgusted, I handed the jam-o-matic to my adult son and said ‘It’s yours. See if you can do anything with it.’ He worked with it for quite a while trying to figure out what the major malfunction was (with the pistol, not with me – he already knows me).
Anyway he got it to work. He put back in the original orange follower (kept the stronger spring) and kept the stronger recoil spring. He figured out the cases were hanging up in the extractor. He worked on the extractor (someone mentioned that in a forum somewhere) and smoothed that area and that was it. It works now.
In the meantime, I had bought a Rock Island 1911 in 38 Super from Bud’s (uses my reloads) and am very happy with it. That was my second choice after the Witness (Try finding anything but these two 1911 brands in stock!). The only reason I went with the Witness was more mag capacity. Forget about it. I don’t carry full-size anything anyway. I should have gotten the R.I. to begin with. It looks, feels, and works great, right out of the box (just like the Glock 20 did.) and is real accurate. Along with the 9rd factory mag, I use a Chip McCormick 10 rd. Both work great.

10mm full-size Wonder. Well, with the heavier recoil spring, the non-Wonder finish replacement slide, heavier magazine spring, Tanfoglio .45 mag follower, some vertical electric tape strips on the right side/top1/3 of the mag to stop the side-to-side motion of the mag, and using round nose (not round-nose flat tip) copper- plated hollow-base 155 gr. bullets, sacrificing 2rds capacity of the mag...so far it's actually working! But I've been fooled before. I need to put a lot more rounds through it though to be sure. I'll let you, if any, know.

In addition to the chronic jamming and tip-up problems, I noticed my Wonder Finish FS Slide was starting to crack near the back/top "corner" of the ejector cut out. This type of problem shooting ammo within SAAMI specs should not be a problem. So off it went on a wing and a prayer back to EAA for repair at my shipping cost both ways. Nevertheless it still saves money over just buying another slide yourself. For some reason I half expected they were going to tell me to go fish for supposedly abusing the gun or some such nonsense.
I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived back just 8-days later with a new slide fitted on it. This one had an adjustable rear sight (with short base) and was black rather than Wonder-Finished and the gun looks damn nice that way. I think it's the slide that is used with the Witness P (polymer) Full-Size except the back sight is adjustable. I had read that the Wonder-Finishing process overheats the slide metal and makes it more brittle. They said my mag. tested OK. So I thought maybe the feed problem was the Wonder slide.
Well I took it to the range today and put 100 rounds through it and the original mag. It choked big time like it always did. The slide made no difference. The best the Witness did was when I switched out the spring and follower with the Mec Gar's .45 Witness ones which actually helped it shoot 9 rounds in-a -row once and 8 in-a-row another time. When it did fire, it was really accurate. The most common feed problem was the nose up as if the rounds working their way up behind the top one push it too high.
Anyway, I had enough for now. So I left the range, bought the latest Glock 20 (my first Glock in any caliber) and returned to the range. It performed flawlessly right out of the box. I only put 50 rounds through it but I got accurate with it. Should've bought the Glock in the first place. Well, the EAA is a piece of junk that's tantalizingly close to being a great pistol. I'll wait for a cure - maybe Mec-Gar will make a 10mm mag. that works since Tangfoglio can't seem to get it done or care to try. I've got a heavier recoil spring on the way. Who knows.

Alas, even my second new Tangfoglio 10mm magazine did not work. I even tried using the follower from the compact model. It failed just the same (but no worse) than the large frame one. I would never depend on this to protect myself. I like the looks, feel, accuracy (with the rounds between the constant jams), and lower felt recoil, but this gun don't shoot. I will go as far to say if the other models like mine work the same way as mine, this gun is actually DANGEROUS what with all the unjamming you have to do. I would not recommend it to anybody. I should have got the Glock. As for the Witness, looks and low price aren't everything. I'll hang onto my Witness hoping for a miracle fix from somewhere I haven't looked yet.

Update #2 on my Witness 10mm magazine. I thought I had the fix in my last review but the more rounds I put through it the more it went back to its' old ways. I can't figure it out. The rounds constantly jam it'll do two from the mag then jam, sometimes only one then it jams. So what I have now is a great-looking and accurate pistol that has a capacity of 1+1 not 15 +1. It's too bad because it's so comfortable for me to shoot and accurate. For now it's a cool looking paperweight. I really hesitate to try another Tanfoglio magazine, but I can't find anyone else that makes one.
