Default PAULSHOOT from East TN

I am an old (80 yr old dude) that just got started shooting pistols Dec 2015 (only had a shotgun all my life since 16 years old and still have it). Anyway, enjoying a lot of target shooting the last years.

I just bought used SW22 Victory at BUD's in Sevierville.

It had a number of TANDEMKROSS accessories: 5 MAGS total with "T" extension on them, a "T" after market trigger, a "T" Halo. I don't know if the "T" hammer is on it or not.

Good price at $249 plus tax and background check (I figure near $260 in extras). .

Maybe rest of this should be another topic -- OH well all ready typed it.

I thought very happy with this purchase iuntil I went to shoot it at BUD's today.

I am NOT SO HAPPY NOW (GROAN bought a pig in a poke so to say).

I had many, many, many, ejection problems using various brands of AMMO (CCI MINI Mag, Remington Golden Bullets, Aquila High Velocity, and CCI Blazer Brass). I think overall the CCI Blazer Brass a buddy and I bought 2500 rounds and split the buy ($0.04 per round) worked as good as any of the others.

An extractor problem I assume. Looking for information to fix (saw on U-Tube someone bent extractor a bit and fixed his ejection problem and others replied the bending worked for them). I can't imagine bending that.

Also, see Tandemkrosa has extractors for about $14 and instructions as to how to replace it.

I also had the impression one could not replace and had to send the gun in to S & W. So, I am investigating.

Other than that, I am happy with accuracy, trigger pull, sights, and fact that I had not one misfire.

Welcome to the forum. Take your Victory back to Buds and have them look at it. It couldn't hurt.

Welcome from Delaware!

I would have BUDS take a look at it, since you bought it there and shoot there, seems pretty simple.

Welcome from Pennsylvania.

If you have not thoroughly cleaned and lubricated your new piece, try that first. It often makes a big difference. One would assume that they are ready to go out of the box, but many have found that a good cleaning first makes a difference.
Good luck, and please keep us posted on your progress.
