I called a couple  different places that had current stock available of this model. Even had one place have a distributor pull one and check. Mine is marked gold  match extreme  and only the 9mm has the slide cuts. Not the 10mm or the 40. Current  models are also no longer  the 2 tone with the frame being  hard  chromed, but industrial  ceramic coating instead. 
  There are so many pictures out there it's very hard to nail down the current configuration  of these. Some pictures  representing  the 10mm were photos of the 9mm with the slide cuts.
  The only unexpected  surprise is that I was counting  on it having  a silver trigger. Only because I bought a  black trigger for it with intentions  of putting the silver one in my limited.

It often seems like EAA just assembles parts they have on hand.

So Sportsman's Guide used the wrong picture there.

I would say not only is it wrong, but it is at least 2 years old or more. It says Tanfoglio  where they have said
Witness EAA Cocoa  FL  for at least  2 years now.

I picked it up last night and made some changes with parts I had waiting  for it.

Replaced the gold team ambi safety with the ambi used on the stock 2 & 3 , and slimed the paddles  down.
 Replaced the silver extended  mag release  with a standard  black release.
 Re-contured  the rear sight.
 20lb recoil spring, 18lb hammer spring, extra power firing pin spring and EGW flat bottom firing pin stop.

  I shot it today with some S&B, Sig fmj,  and Underwood  155gr xtp  & 165gr gold dot. I had 1 failure  to go into battery  with a gold dot. This set up is finally  the awnser for brass not to go into orbit.

I agree, I really like the changes.

I like the frame color also, cool gun all around.

Yes. It's listed on there  website,  but with no detailed  description. I emailed them and they confirmed  it is a FBFPS. I bought one for all three of my 10mm Tanfo's.

That's excellent! Looks like a good piece and I might have to pick up a spare.


Is the rear sight an LPA design with any changes?

It's not marked LPA like my stock III, and has a taller blade like on my limited.  but it is fully serrarrated and the one on my limited  is not , but the LPA marked one is. So I would  say they have changed it somewhat yet again.




Here is the fps part#

I know it's still early, but which one do you like shooting the most?

The limited  is  my favorite over  the stock III, but no matter how hard I try I shoot the Stock III consistently more accurate. I put about  100 rounds through the extreme today and it wasn't bad at all, but at this point the stock III still has the edge.

Thanks for the info about EGW offering a FPFPS for the Witness.  Ordering two as soon as I am home from India.
