Press Release:

The new Witness2311® by Girsan was built to be affordable and one of the highest quality double stack 1911s today.

Designed to utilize standard double stack 1911 magazines as well as the traditional polymer grip, receiver, and the top end of Girsan 1911 handguns (in 9mm, 45ACP, and 10mm) the Witness 2311® is as versatile as it is revolutionary. “The new Witness2311® doesn’t just innovate a small market, it opens it up to a whole new consumer” said Chase Duffey, National Sales & Import Manager at EAA Corp. “The reliability of a Girsan 1911 now available with a much larger capacity and at a price point that everyone can afford, there really is no downside to this new handgun.”

Available in 9mm (17 round capacity), 45 ACP (11 round capacity) and 10mm (15 round capacity) the Girsan 2311® is the perfect handgun for concealed carry, competition and even bear defense, but the most shocking detail about the new Witness2311® may be the price. MSRP starts at $999 and dealer orders are being accepted now! They will be available for purchase at finer sporting goods and firearm stores nationwide soon.

    I'm confused at the naming. It made sense to me that Oracle arms called their double stack 1911-thing something different than 2011, but EAA could have just as easily called theirs a Witness2011, if they're going to play copycat, they might as well do it on a known/familiar model.

    Oh, hey, lookitthat, a 2011 at the $1000 price point with affordable magazines in 9mm. Gee, I wonder if it's going to sell well.
