First off, I own a Tanfoglio (EAA) Witness P 9mm, the full size.
I absolutely love it. You can see my review for it on this site.
This SAR is very, very close to the design of a Witness. My full size is a bit too large to carry, so Ive been looking around for a smaller 9 that still has a double stack magazine and a SA/DA trigger pull. I tried a few DA only (Ruger LCP, Ruger LC9, and SCCY CPX 9) and I can't stand having a gun that you never feel like shooting because the trigger sucks so bad. (Im sure there ARE people out there who enjoy shooting the above mentioned types of pisols, and they are great for self defense, but not for me)
I have carried a CZ 82 (9x18mm) pistol for about a year now. It is great, one of my favorites. But, I just felt like the caliber is a little underpowered, and that a 9x19 gives you quite a boost in ballistics.
So I was considering an EAA witness compact or carry, but heard about these SAR pistols (and read an article about their amazing state-of-the-art factory in Turkey) I saw a full size SAR B6P in a store and it felt so much like my witness (lets be honest here, it's basically the same gun)
I did some looking and found the compact version and decided to give it a try. Ordered some extra mags from buds (they are listed as being for the B6PL, but are the exact same as the one that came with this pistol, work great)
I absolutely love it. The sights are a bit different from my Witness and aren't adjustable, but it shoots right on and the sights are easy to pick up.
The trigger is actually better than my Witness. So much better that it's taking me a bit to get used to this new one, because it has such a light SA pull and less creep than my Witness.
The finish and fit is top notch.
The mags are nice. I thought the huge buttplate would make it harder to conceal but it doesn't for me, not at all.
The gun is very accurate. I absolutely love it.
I ordered a custom made IWB cowhide and kydex holster made for the Witness compact and this pistol fits it perfectly.
So, if you are considering this gun, GET IT! It's as nice as guns 200 to 300 bucks more. All day.
