    Tanfoglio ( Tan-Fo-Leo) "g" is silent, 9mm (European). EAA brings these pistols into the US under the Witness models. CZ / 1911 Clones with model either in all steel or polycarbon/steel combo.

    The video is in Italian, but it was enough to get me to go test-fire, and order one from Bud's.

    One dunking in waterbucket to cool it off, one slight oiling in the barrel, wipe down, and back to the race.

    Quality gun, reasonably priced, under the radar of most Glock, Colt, S&W,... shooters:

    Owned four of them several years ago, bought within a few weeks of each other. Very inexpensive. Deep grooves in the trigger trashed my index finger in short order. Steel ones were very heavy for daily carry. Polymer ones were easier. All shot okay. I found the trigger LOP long for my average sized hands and rather creepy. If they had had readily available accessories (like Glock today) and I took the time to work with them I might still have one of them. Best version is the alloy framed CZ P-01, IMO. They do have a following.

    UPDATE : Well the American version of what was shown in the Stress Test ( Flush Faced EAA Witness) was not what showed up at Bud's ( Bud's does have a disclaimer :Do Not Rely on Stock Photo). I made several attempts BEFORE ordering to assure that photo was accurate AND was the style I would get. DID NOT HAPPEN.

    Anyway I cancelled the purchase with the store manager with ZERO problem.

    Two days later I found a slightly used Beretta PX4 in 9mm for just a little more. I'm a Beretta Pistol Guy for over 20 years ( 92FS Centurion) any way.

    Just got back from the range. Glock 19, 26, 42 and Bersa Thunder 380. Bersa was a nice change of pace with the best trigger, but the 42 was more accurate. Also was very accurate with the 26. Last week I shot the 19 best. Besides price, I account for ease of field stripping as criteria for purchasing. Some Rugers, S&Ws among others need a punch or special tool to clean. Yeah, you are sitting at the bench cleaning and a punch is easy to use, but why make it a necessity to remove a slide?

    I don't know about the EAA field stripping, but they are double action and not much less than a Glock. I carry a 42 which is a great little gun, so why bother complicating things?

    Is it just me, or does that gun have a lot of recoil/lift?

    dac. If you are talking about the Video the only bad shooting style I noticed was female "Limp Wristing" her shots. Most of the guys seem to recover target quite quickly.

    Since some of us are getting into stress tests of pistols I thought I'd bump this up.
    Video is in Italian but:
