Our Assessment: Drawing significantly from the design of the CZ-75, the Tanfoglio Witness shares many of that pistol’s qualities including a slide-in design which allows for less reciprocating mass and a lower bore axis. This is the Limited Custom Extreme. IT is all setup for USPSA or Steel Challenge and has all the feature you want like its nice trigger, easy to manipulate controls, extended magazine well, and quick pointing sights. The frame is drilled and tapped so you can install a gas pedal or even an optic if you’re wanting to go in a different division. The action is smooth, the grip frame is ergonomic, the slide has forward and rear serrations, and adjustable sights, an all-around fun pistol well suited to competitors needs. This pistol is in Excellent condition…I wonder if it ever even hit the range. Please see our pictures and good luck!
Some are hot, some are not, but thankfully most can be shot!
