I have taken a real likin' to the .38 Super.

Does anyone have any experience with the EAA .38 Super?

While I like the 1911 .38 Supers, I shoot my P-220 .38 Super even better.

I just wonder if there is something better out there.

Thank you.


Niech Zyje P-220

Haven't had the opportunity to handle one. The 38s I have are a 2011, P220s, and a Glock.

Hopefully someone can fill us in.



My other Sig is a Steyr...

I've got one. It's OK - Witness pistols are pretty good. When I get a "round tuit" I'll sell it. I have a few 2011s in 38 super, and I never carry it. (It was to be my beater, in an tough environment, but we don't really have that environment in the new facility.)

I have had one for several decades now.



These are probably 20 years old by now.

The one with the black trigger is the 38 SUPER while the other is 45ACP. The EAA staff used to shoot at my Uncle Hal's range down i North Miami. So they did these up for me back then

If I were buying one off the shelf today, I would go for something in the Elite lineup. For a range gun I am a big fan of the Limited. I like how that full length dust cover looks on the CZ patterned pistols



Mine is chambered in 10MM Auto, but I have often toyed with the idea of one in 38 SUPER or possibly even taking it to 9x23 Winchester Smile

Though the Stock II would be very nice if I were considering carrying the firearm.

As you already know, it is hard to beat a P220 chambered in 38 SUPER for accuracy (lower left)



The Witness with it's steel frame will soak up recoil and make the 38 SUPER a pussycat to shoot and you gain double the magazine capacity of the P220

How is EAA's customer service with warranty and past-warranty repairs?

I can not help you too much in that area RichardC

I currently own 6 EAA Witness pistols including the three pictured above. Not to mention others that have been bought and sold over the years.

In close to 3 decades of shooting them I have never had to make use of their repair services
