I'm just looking for any info on the Witnes 10mm steel frame pistol. I don't own a 10mm yet and this one looks like it is the least expensive quality one one the market. They look like CZ/Sphinx copies. I know S&W, Colt and DW sell 10mm's but I'm looking for an inexpensive starter. Anyone have an opinion?

Tanfoglio makes great guns - it's a pity that their importer EAA is so difficult to deal with. Personally, I like a heavier 10mm (I have a tanklike 1076), and would not use a Tanfoglio in that caliber - but I have online friends who like theirs just fine.

That said, I'd really urge you to avoid anything having to do with EAA. Search here or at many other forums for stories of their difficult customer service.

So far I've heard nothing good about the EAA Witnes 10mm from this thread and PM's. Plus I don't know of anyone or have even seen one at the ranges I frequent.So, How about the Kimber 10mm model? Maybe the Dan Wesson model. I'm sort of stuck on S.A. auto's but I'm not married to them. I know the Witnes is D.A. and that was another featurs I was interested in but I'll wait for the S&W 3913 or CS,45cal I plan to buy latter.

The ""PRICE for now. I don't want to spend alot of cash for a caliber I won't shoot. i thought I would start out with a better priced 10mm and if I like it I'll up grade. Although if I could find a S&W 10mm in good shape for a far price i might buy it but for now I was quoetd a price of $725.00 for a new Kimber Custom 11 10mm I paid $25.00 less for my Kimber 11 45. i sort of like that kind of customer service. I have heard some good things reguarding the 1911 platformed 10mm. With reservations of course.

I know I always seem to add the price of the guns I talk about. I just want to see if anyone thinks I got "BURNED" on any of my purchases or if I got a "DEAL" on them. Thats why I put it out there.

I want to thank you people again for all the help and information I've gotten here. Also for the friends I've accumulated here.

I got into a S&W 1076 last year for $350, with night sights and a pile of mags. I think I did really well, but I didn't know that used S&W DA 10s were up there in new Kimber price territory. :-/

Well I've really only have seen one S&W 10mm around here. It was about $600.00. Other than that and a Bren 10, ($3,500.00) and a Glock rental that was all of the 10mm I've run across. I'm not married to the Kimber yet I just know I can get new and I was using the 1076 price for the nieghborhood. I'm in no hurry so I'll keep looking for more choices. That price you got sounds fantastic! I would jump on that if I ran across it myself.

I know two people that have and love the Witness 10mm. As for myself, I'd like them and other Witness pistols more if my fingers were a bit longer. In D/A mode, I just can't comfortably reach the trigger.

I was at a gun store and they let me shoot the Witnes and a Colt Delta Elite. I have to say I did like the Witnes. The DA/Sa trigger felt good. Recoil was a bit Sharpe. All in all I liked it. The Colt was Perfect, Less felt recoil and better sights. Plus I am use to the SA pistol. Now the price difference. Witnes, $465.00, Colt $1,190.00. I asked them about the Kimber price but it seemed like it was too much of a bother to look it up and they even said" It would take over a month to have one delivered, if Kimber even had it in stock." I just left the store.

Howdy Mr. Spikey614,

Well the good news was you were able to go hands on with both pistols and know how they worked for you. The bad news was the folks there lost a potential sale with their attitude.

But at least you have more first hand information to factor into your decision process now. So at least your range time was well spent there sir.
