All of the pistols in this test had steel slide rails molded into their polymer frames. The rails on the Glock 30 and the Heckler & Koch USP45 Compact faced outward, while the EAA Witness P Compact’s inverted rails (shown) faced inward.
Field stripping this EAA isn’t difficult. Start by removing the magazine and unloading the chamber. Cock the hammer. Pull the slide to the rear until the takedown mark on the left rear of the slide aligns with the takedown mark on the left rear of the frame. Push in on the slide catch lever from the right, then pull it out of the frame from the left. Let the slide assembly move forward and off the front of the frame. Slightly compress and remove the non-captive recoil assembly, which has two springs, from the slide. Elevate the back of the barrel and withdraw it from the slide. Reassemble in reverse order.
