Dang, that is one interesting round!

Whoa! $1,800 for single stack 1911's! Did they do any market research on their competition!!?? Glock and Tanfoglio are probably laughing and sighing with relief this morning.

Maybe yours had some kind of abnormality or fitment issue causing wear there. I wonder if sending it in to EAA wouldn't have been a good option?

Might have, and I probably should have at least tried. I have just heard so many horror stories about their customer service that I didn't want to deal with all of it.

Whew, guess their trade worked to your advantage!

No sarcasm meant whatsoever, but what do you do with 24 magazines for your 10mm 1911?  Maybe i need to get me some more!

Pre load your mags for a whole range trip.

Or carry enough reloads for a modern day defensive encounter.  >:D Total sarcasm.

Thanks for the pics! Dang, mine had more wear on the front edges of the locking lugs than yours and I had 500 rounds through it and only about 200 loaded like real 10mm. Yours is wearing fantastically!

That's a good idea. I don't know if I have enough posts over there, so I'll go check it out. Dang, too bad on the used price. I figured since these were pretty immaculate that $20 below their new price would be reasonable...

I had these on my EAA Witness Hunter 10mm. They look like they are new and I took great care of them and the pistol.

These do not fit rounded trigger guard frames. Here's the other notes from the product page on the Ben Stoeger Pro Shop (where I got them from.) I threw in a pic of them on the Hunter I used to have them on.

$100 including shipping in the US.

Any pictures of the brass to see what's going on?

I'll snag some more pics when I get home. I had a post over on the CZ forum about it that I linked to.

I actually talked to Wolff today About them not making mag springs for the K10 10mm magazine.
  While on the phone I asked about the recoil springs by model. I was told the springs are the same regardless of standard or long  slide. The difference is if you order a 20lb long slide spring you get a 22lb standard spring which yields 20lb in the long slide models. And every spring is a 2lb difference across the board.

Ahh, this makes sense then.

I'm interested! Did you get it threaded for a suppressor or muzzle break?

If you make the AR for it I am also interested! There's a 9x30 Dillon that was made and it is just a 10mm auto magnum necked down to 9mm. That is something I keep thinking would be epic in an AR! So hearing about your 9x25 would definitely help me plan my very long term future idea of a 9x30 Dillon AR.

Correction on my typing/memory process. I am running the 20 lb spring. part 49820 is that longslide 20lb recoil spring from Wolff.

A little case mouth hit is nothing.  I just resize those out.

This is good to know! If it is happening all the time how can I check for pressure signs via measuring the case when it gets so banged up all the time? Does this happen with most all the other Witness pistols in 10mm? Do the Glocks mess up brass like this as well?

How far did you cut the ejector back? I have mine like a knub!

It's pretty far back. Not a knub yet... I think the issue is most of the angle the brass is getting ripped up along the side of the frame. I don't know though.

I deleted the pics of the brass, but I did post these is the reloading and ammo sub forum over at the CZ forum.

Good news. The ejection pattern was adjusted and the brass ejected consistently straight to the side.

Bad news. The brass is still getting banged up.

I would of sent it back to EAA right out the get go, but we all know what sort of customer service they offer. For $950 there's some things I'd expect to be better, and I don't care to keep trouble shooting the ejection issue. The pistol is up for sale.

Brass ejection distances measured in parsecs is just one of the joys of owning a 10mm.  The only solution I know of is the one you employed, trimming back the ejector.

Be sure to report back how well it worked.

As far as reassembling the sear cage, I have only done the witness and it was a pain.  I recall I may have created a slave pin, but I don't remember as it has been many years ago.

Ha, that is true. I guess the distance is not the real concern as destroying my precious brass is the real issue.  I'll definitely post an update after I get it to the range.

Dang, no that you mention it I can see how I can use a slave pin for the sear and sear spring. I am actually mad at myself for not thinking through that in the moment (or 30 minutes) of me trying to get that back in place. Next time it will take all of 2 minutes with a slave pin, freak! Good call sqlbullet!

Besides shorting the ejector,  a heavier hammer spring also helps. With the hunter being SA only the trigger pull weight doesn't get effected like it does in DA. Flat bottom firing pin stop is another item to add IMO.

Hopefully the ejector modification changes the timing so it isn't destroying brass. After that I don't care how far it decides to fling. I am pretty interested to see if this changes the direction if ejects very much too. Anyways, I'll keep ya'll posted.
