Chambered in .38 Super, the Witness offers a potent combination of power and precision. The .38 Super cartridge is known for its high velocity and flat trajectory. The cartridge’s design allows for higher magazine capacity compared to larger calibers, which is an advantage in both competition and self-defense scenarios.
