    I am doing a little research on the full sized steel EAA Witness chambered for the .38 Super (last minute or late Christmas present).

    Anyhow, I have seen the Model number 999151 as having an 18+1 round capacity on some websites, and also as having only a 10+1 round capacity on other listings.

    My guess is that the 10+1 might only be a matter of those pistols manufactured prior to the sunset of the Assault weapons ban, and that it is merely a matter of the magazine shipped with the gun. However, I have been known to have guessed wrong before, so if someone has a definitive and authoritative answer, I would be in their debt if they could share it with me.

    Thanks in advance...

    18 rounds is the new full size frames. I believe the older guns used 10 round buring the AWB, or 16 rounds for pre-ban. I've got an older 16 round 9mm, and right after I got mine the mag ban was introduced and they shipped with 10 rounds.

    My new .40 is the large frame and holds 15 rounds, I don't think the mags are interchangeable since they changed the frame size, but I could be wrong. Reeds Ammo is a poster here and should be able to tell you if you can't get http://www.eaacorp.com to answer the question.
