Have had this pistol for a few years - This is my club match pistol and is smooth, dependable and accurate. Quality is top notch and everything about the gun is 10 out of 10. I am a senior and this pistol allows me to compete with the "Young Guns"
Also as always Bud's was Perfect from start to finish.

My buddy is a gun nut. He has everything made worth mentioning sometimes a few of them. The tanfoglio witness elite match was one of the very few guns that I’ve shot of his that I said “hey what is this one called again??? He also has a CZ tactical sport & a custom shadow. I’m familiar with CZ’s too. These tanfoglio elite match guns are hands down some of the smoothest shooting, lowest recoil, best bang for the buck guns ever made! They are absolutely a fine Example of a slide in frame “cz” style gun. The trigger on these is very good especially for the price! That is to be expected with the single action trigger the elite match come with. The heavy weight is very well balanced and really dampens recoil noticeably. My Critiques of this gun are I wish it came with 2 magazines. Keep the fancy case tanfoglio and put fiber optic front site on these guns and 2 magazines and wow what a shooter! The only other gun that impressed me like these for the under $800 gun arena check out the grand power Xcalibur....get one of these and a xcalibur thank me later 😎

My computer was down and it took 4 hours on the phone to get a sales person at Bud's Gun Shop. He was courteous and helpful as usual. The firearm is a real home run! It shoots as well or better than a CZ Sport and has a steel trigger instead of plastic. The case is outstanding! It looks like Armani designed it, but I would have preferred a cardboard box and 2 magazines. All in all, I'm really happy with the gun and it's a pleasure to shoot.

This has to be the smoothest shooting gun I have ever fired. There is no recoil due to its size and weight. The trigger is fantastic and has a lite pull. The slide just glides as if on ball bearings. This is a top notch gun. I wanted the Sphinx SDP but this gun is actually a better range gun. I guess you could carry it, but for me its too big. I love this purchase and would buy again.

This gun shoots extremely accurately and at 21ft I shot 15 rounds total and 5 of which went through the same hole. The group was under 2,5 inches at a slow rate of fire.
The gun is heavy and large but it is what i expected. Anyone thats looking for extreme accuracy will love & appreciate this gun. It operates even better than it looks!

I picked up a Tanfoglio Witness Elite Match, chambered in 9mm from Bud's Gun Shop. I have never used the layaway option, so I took a chance and wanted to see how it worked. Very glad I did. The cash discount option is good, and was honored with each payment toward paying off the gun before their FREE & FAST delivery. The cash discount vs. credit card shouldn't really exist among online merchants, but it is what it is.
The Match version of this 9mm Witness is a well-crafted piece. It fits well in my large hands, and the fit & finish is great. The quality is on par with guns twice the price of this Tanfoglio firearm. The trigger is the best I've used, and I'm hoping it doesn't spoil me in relation to the other pistols I currently own. The sight picture is OKAY. I highly recommend a fiber optic sight from eaacorp.com. Also, prepare to find some magazines, as it ships with only ONE mag. I can't complain about this, because of everything you're getting for just shy of $700.
Money well spent! Thanks Bud's. You've earned a loyal customer.
I put 200 rounds of Federal American Eagle through it. No hiccups, FTF, FTE so far. I will update my review once I hit 2000 rounds.

The EAA Whitness Elite Match is a very nice shooting firearm. Very well built with everything metal on it. I have 500+ rounds through it without any issues. It shoots accurate, feels nice in the hand and a smooth, light trigger. I would recommend this EAA Witness Elite Match 9 mm to anyone.

BEST PISTOL IVE EVER SHOT!!! I was worried as I wanted a comp gun but trusted others reviews (on about 20 sites/forums) and got this witness match...WOW! Instantly made me a 100-200% better shooter. Awesome trigger, stupid comfortable to hold use/no pressure points. Just an awesome solid gun. Put 250 pack of mag tech cheapo through and it never hinted at a problem whatsoever...I will be buying this gun in 10mm and possibly 38 super. Shoot one...and you will own one. Mags are no longer a problem either! I ordered 3 from EAA and they were shipped to me for a $85! That's a great deal for 3 17rd mags all made by Mec kar as is the one it comes with.

This is a great pistol. I was looking for a larger pistol since I have large hands, and this pistol fits perfectly. I took it to the range today, and it performed very well. I don't consider myself an expert shooter, but the groupings were very consistent, and it never had a problem with feeding or ejecting ammo. I know others consider this pistol to be large and heavy, but even my wife who has small hands was able to shoot this pistol very well. This was my first purchase from Bud's, but it will not be my last. The purchase experience and the pistol are both A++++++++++++++++.
