Our Assessment: The EAA Tanfoglio Witness Limited Custom in 10mm with a 4.75″ bull barrel is a high-performance, semi-automatic pistol designed for competitive shooting and enthusiasts who demand precision and power. Tanfoglio, an Italian firearms manufacturer, is known for its well-crafted pistols, and the Witness Limited Custom is a standout model in their lineup. Imported by European American Armory (EAA), this pistol combines exceptional build quality, powerful chambering, and advanced features to cater to serious shooters. The Witness Limited Custom is built on Tanfoglio’s large-frame design, which accommodates the powerful 10mm cartridge. The frame and slide are constructed from high-quality steel, providing durability and stability. The full-length dust cover adds weight to the front of the pistol, helping to reduce muzzle flip and improve accuracy during rapid firing. A key feature of this model is its 4.75″ bull barrel. The bull barrel design means that the barrel has a larger diameter and is heavier than standard barrels. This added weight enhances the pistol’s balance and reduces recoil, contributing to improved accuracy. The 10mm cartridge, known for its high velocity and energy, benefits from this barrel design, allowing shooters to make the most of its ballistic capabilities. The Witness Limited Custom comes equipped with a match-grade trigger, which is finely tuned for a crisp and light pull. This feature is particularly important for competitive shooters who require precision and consistency in their trigger press. Additionally, the pistol features an extended beavertail, ambidextrous safety, and an enlarged magazine release, all of which are designed to enhance ergonomics and control. These features make the pistol easier to handle and manipulate during high-stress shooting situations. For aiming, the Witness Limited Custom is equipped with adjustable rear sights and a fiber optic front sight. The fiber optic sight aids in quick target acquisition, especially in various lighting conditions, while the adjustable rear sight allows for precise tuning to match the shooter’s preferences or specific ammunition loads. The combination of these sights provides a clear and accurate sight picture, essential for both competitive shooting and defensive use. Ergonomics are a strong point of the Witness Limited Custom. The pistol features checkered grip panels that offer a secure and comfortable hold. The grip angle is designed to provide natural pointability, making it easier for shooters to maintain a consistent and stable shooting stance. Additionally, the front and back straps are checkered to enhance grip security further, ensuring the pistol remains firmly in hand even during rapid fire. The pistol comes with a high-capacity magazine, holding 14 rounds of 10mm ammunition. This capacity is advantageous for competitive shooting, reducing the need for frequent reloads and allowing shooters to engage multiple targets effectively. In summary, the EAA Tanfoglio Witness Limited Custom is a premium semi-automatic pistol designed for serious shooters who demand performance, precision, and power.
