I just bought a steel frame compact witness and want to get a better barrel and do some other things, but I cant find a barrel anywhere. Anyone know where I can get one? 

first question is whats wrong with the factory barrel? 

Assuming you need a new barrel for some reason, as far as I know the only barrels available for Tanfoglios are factory (EAA has some in stock) and Patriot Defense, if you need a new barrel for your compact you can get a longer one and cut it down, an aftermarket one from PD with fitting will likely cost more than your gun

In my continual struggle to make my Witness look the way I want I bought a compact 10mm slide to send off and get NP3+'d [since the Wonder ones are never in stock] and I ended up getting one of the "round sided" ones and saw people complain about them cracking compared to the "square sided" ones?

Any feelings on this matter?

how much do you plan to shoot it? being a 10mm I would assume not that much so likely not really a issue as the round count wont be through the roof like most competition guns

Approximately 600rds per year. What kind of round counts are people usually experiencing slide cracking at, on average? Like 5 figure numbers?

And all this seemingly admits that the round slides do indeed crack easier?

I have no first hand knowledge of the round top slides cracking, I just know the internet lore that they must because there is less metal, that said there is still as much or more metal that say a tri topped 1911 or CZ Czechmate. Tanfoglio has over they years had like most firearms manufactures had matches of slides that had improper heat treat or bad casting or both and have had slides fail. 

 

I would personally have no issues with a round top slide other than I find them less aesthetically pleasing. All guns break or wear out, its just a matter of shooting them enough, at 500 rounds a year its unlikely you will get close to that ever barring a defect from the factory.

Yeah, I don't like it as much as a square-top with front slide serrations but those are hard to come by right now. I wanted to know before I sent it off to get NP3+ coated since I can't get a wonder finish compact 10mm slide at all.

Can anyone tell me what slide racker I can use on my Gold Team besides the factory one. I want to run it on the left side without bashing up my thumb. 😣

Does anyone know where you can find replacement locking clips for the tanfo 22lr conversion magazine?  I happen to have several mags with missing clips, and would hate to have to buy new mags when all I need is the little metal clips.  I must have somehow pulled them off before realizing that they are necessary!

Does anyone else's anti-virus flip out over EAA's site? Or is it just me? I even tried whitelisting it but I still have a grand old time trying to go there and look for things.

Edit: It appears to be working now, though I'd still ask if it was really weird for anyone else over the past couple months?
