...there was a knock upon my chamber door and when I opened it I saw the Brown Truck of Happiness. Just up from Florida, he was, and he had me sign for an "adult signature required" package. No, he didn't card me. Bastard. Young whipper-snapper!
In the box was:
the EAA Witness 10mm, back from a one-month (to the day!) vacation in The Sunshine State. The cracked slide has been replaced with one of the "Target" model slides with a Bomar-type adjustable rear sight:
And look at the thickness of the steel at the forward edge of the ejection port. Not bad!
Here's another view:
Compared to the original slide:
Same angle, same frame and barrel, but the thickness of the new slide appears to be at least double that of the old one.
This is a bowling pin gun so an adjustable sight is a real benefit! At first I was a bit put-off by the dark finish of the new slide; all of the other slides I own are Wonderfinish - that shimmery gray color. But it looks pretty good in two-tone, donchathink?
And there was no charge: an "in-warranty" repair. Woo-hoo!
