I have had my Victory for about six months and have managed to run 2000 rounds through it. The majority of the ammo was CCI Minimag 36 grain but I have also run Federal, Blazer, Winchester and Remington in small quantities to see how they cycled. I have to say that I love everything about this gun, accuracy, weight, esthetics, ease of breakdown even the out of the box trigger. My bore is super smooth, almost looks polished. The takedown screw was tight but I used a socket set allen wrench instead of the factory supplied wrench and tightened to 30 inch pounds when I reassembled it. Have not had the screw loosen on me.
I have couple of Rugers that I really like as well, but neither performed were even close to the Victory out of the box. They are both great shooters now that I have redone triggers, tuned mags and polished internals.
Getting a threaded barrel Victory as soon as I can find one at my LGS. Thanks S&W.

The few times I had that problem I noticed the barrel screw had come loose. Tightened it up and no more problem with FTE. Till the next time the screw came loose which happened often. I added the O-rings but haven't shot it since then to see if that fixed the loose screw problem.

I was having FTE about every 3rd round and always the first round. My cure was to bend the ejector slightly in to hit more of the rim. I also got Volquartsen's new extractor for the SW22. I cured the loose takedown with a split washer the fits so good it stays in the frame. I also put in there SS fluted barrel.

I have the same ejection problems. Found the ejector was bent outward .080". I moved it inward from center (center being the back of the ejector under the welds) .010" or .25mm and found that it seemed to rub excessively on the inside groove of the firing pin housing when cycling.. So, I straightened the ejector, it does not rub now. Waiting on the weekend to try again!

Update: It ran without flaw using at least 100 rounds of each CCI mini mag, Blazer and Aguila HV.
Next full cleaning the Tandemkross target trigger and the Volquartzen ejector gets installed.

Volquartsen now offers a replacement extractor for the SW22 Victory. I installed one in my Victory.

I had a similar ejection problem on my victory. I'm left handed and found that my thumb would ride up and cover part of the ejection port. If you impede the casing flight ever so slightly, it would hand up on the empty case.

Thank you so much for the tip about slightly bending the ejector. I went from 1 to 2 jams per mag. to over 250 rounds without a hiccup. also I had a problem with the take-down screw loosening, and someone on the forum suggested teflon tape. Worked like a charm. So far this forum has solved two problems with the Victory for me. Thanks again

I used the slight "bend the ejector a couple of mms inwards) suggestion and removed the magazine safety. No more FTE or FTFs (although I had three in my first magazine. I finished firing the seven and loaded the three. Two fired. The third would not even fire in a revolver turning it 360 degrees every time. Waiting to receive O-rings in the Mail. In Canada, several hardware shops did not know what a #61 was or a #36.

Different manufactures number their o-rings differently. For example, I've seen the #61 also labeled 007. It should be about 9/32" OD x 5/32" ID x 1/16 thick.

Smile SW 22 Victory Failure to Eject and loose upper screw fixes

Good news:
I bought mine several months ago for use in speed steel matches. Major issues with extraction, double feeds, and bending live rounds. All with even quality ammo. Sent it in for factory service to no avail. I was very hesitant to bend any interior parts.

I fixed the FTE issue by installing a Volquartzen ejector. $16.00 plus shipping. It will now eat even old garbage lead hollowpoints. Ureka! Worth every penny.

Additionally, I saw a post about fixing the upper frame screw loosening issue. The simple fix is a common rubber O ring from the local hardware store. Just take the screw down for proper sizing.

Now not embarrassed to shoot matches with it. Runs great.

I also have several accessory mods from Tandemkross. They are great to work with.

Next mods are Tandemkross target trigger and then trying to find a decent fast draw holster. (oh, no one makes them yet)

Hope this helps.........

Default Exact Edge Extractor Installation for SW22 Victory

This is where I will need help and very detailed instructions. I hardly ever play with the innards of my guns. I have once, a few years ago, received very detailed instructions on replacing some part od My Ruger Mark III 22/45 with Volquartsen parts.
Now I need help with my SW22 Victory.
I had the usual problems. FTF/FTE. Resolved with very light minimal bending inwards of the ejector rod as mentioned before.
Takedown screw turned very first time; I didn't have to use Herculean efforts or send the gun back (and I'm in Canada.)
Then used an O-ring and it stays put.
I have an Exact Edge Extractor from Volquartsen on the way and I have no idea (couldn't find any material, VQ or SW or Youtube) how to install it. I have been reviewing ththe Ruger 22/45 instructions but am not confident that they would translate well for the sw.
I am going to subscribe to this thread hoping to find notifications of a good SW Samaritan post with detailed instructions. Cheers all.

I did it and am looking for the video I used when I replaced the extractor with a Volquartsen. As soon as I find it I'll post the link.

At the 1:42 mark, he is taking the extractor out:

After about 1500 rounds through mine the TAC-22 now works fine. So I added them to the list of usable rounds.

Not the ideal instruction video when he's disassembling with a few Oooopses and Let's see if this works. However his re-assembly of the firing pin (which I won't be touching) and the re-installation of the extractor is clear.)
Thanks for the link.

I have found the TK video.
The title or name of the video is NOT a helpful clue.

I have to concur. For anyone who had feed issues, check the ejector first. Mine was of just a tick and a little TLC with needle nose pliers fixed mine. The ejector absolutely has to be in a sweet spot to push the spent case out properly.

Here's the solution: Bend the ejector pin into the case path by about 0.5 to 1.0 mm. Took it to the range and now the SW22 Victory will take any cartridge sub sonic or super sonic Federal or CCI - Problem solved

That seems to be an all too common problem. Send it back to S&W, they will cover the shipping both ways.

So far that adjustment has taken 28 day since they received it! Not at all happy with this "New pistol repair time"!

Default SW 22 Victory

I am so disappointed with this gun. I have been to the range with it twice. Both times my Fte were ridiculous. At least 6 out of 10. I hate this gun! Both trips to the range it went back in the case and I brought out my Sig Sauer!

This was the tweak I tried (even a smaller distance) and a few hundred rounds later I had only one (1) FTF/FTE. There was no powder loaded. A dud round.

I guess that for "some" shooters, the YMMV dictum applies.

A little Loctite 242 will solve the loose thread problem. How do I know? The factory sent me a new takedown screw with that on it!

Thumbs up Ejection and take down screw issue

Bend the ejector a bit to engage more camming action on the empty shell. Bend it inward about 1 mm., check that it still rides in the ejector groove on the underside of the bolt body. I have repaired 4 Victories using this method. Look at the diagram posted earlier on how to bend the ejector. It works 99%of the time.

Take down screw: a little dab of locktite blue, and then use a Wheeler Fat wrench and torque to 30 inch pounds. You can still disassemble with ease, but have no loosening until you want to remove it. I have shot over 1000 rounds thru the gun without the screw loosening during shooting.

Have fun and shoot safe !!
