I usually knock glocks as the most superficially lacking firearm on the market (performance aside, of course, I've read the torture tests w/ baby powder, sand, & muck) but the look of this design won me over. the glut of accesories kind of behoofs the asthetics of the weapon, one question tho, does it transform into a helicopter?

Get one or use one that you have in limited or Limited-10 and start shooting IPSC, you'd love it

most fun you can have with a firearm and still be legal

Looks cool, but IMO the open 1911's still look MUCH better.

I like the Witness pistol better....holds more rounds and in more calibers than the 1911

But nobody shoots .45acp or .40sw in open and the witness will only hold 19 of 9mm and .38super only hold 15, both are down from 20 rounds in a 140mm mag or 28-30 in a 170mm mag. big disadvantage on a field stage

The "Gold Team" pistol is the signature model of 1999, 2002, 2005 IPSC World Champion Eric Grauffel.

Things are different in Europe, Tanfoglio is huge there, as STI is here.

Since the Tanfoglio gun was designed in (I believe) '95, there are no preban mags and it wasn't until recently that companys like Grams or Arredondo started making +1 or +2 basepads for the normal cap mags. Tanfoglio started making 170mm mags, but EAA won't import them, the only way to get a 170mm is from Eric himself

So its either a Tanfoglio with limited access to mags, part and quality gunsmith

or STI, a gun that everyone shoots, there is a huge aftermarket and many quality smiths

If we were in europe, it would be the opposite

getting parts from Europe is not as hard as one thinks. I have had to deal with Lanber in Spain and Berreta Italy for parts before.

And basically anyone who smiths a CZ can smith on a witness.

But its all about taste. Me I have never been a 1911 man.
