How to determine if you need the Witness Large Frame or Small Frame magazines:
Prior to 2005 the EAA Witness was produced in both small frame and large frame configurations, depending on the caliber and frame material. The Witness Classics and EAA Witness pistols made prior to 2005 in either 9mm or .40 S&W take small frame magazines. The .38 Super, .45 acp and 10mm models are all considered large frame pistols. Witness P in full size, Witness Steel, Elite and the Xtreme line models made after 2005 take large frame magazines. However the EAA Witness P-S (small frame polymer) use the small frame magazines. If your pistol takes the Witness magazine #101900 you need the small frame 9mm magazines. The small frame magazines are approximately 0.796” thick (side to side) and 1.25 long (front to back). The large frame magazines are approximately .843” thick (side to side) and 1.369 long (front to back). The large frame 9mm magazines have grooves down the sides of the magazine tube, the small frame 9mm magazines are smooth on the sides. The EAA Witness 9mm small frame magazines used to hold 16 rounds now both the EAA Witness 9mm small frame and large frame magazines hold 17 rounds. Neither the large or small frame .40 S&W magazine tubes have grooves on the sides of the magazine tubes. The small frame EAA Witness .40 S&W magazines hold 12 rounds and the EAA Witness .40 S&W large frame magazines hold 14 rounds. All the magazines are also offered in a magazine limited to 10 rounds.
Small Frames include all Witness PS, Witness Classics and firearms produced in 9mm or 40 S&W previous to the year 2005.
