Default New Victory

Recently picked up a Victory as another range toy; plan on it being like my Buckmark but easy to clean and modular. So far about 300 trouble free rounds thru it (36 & 40 gn mini mags); actually a pretty sweet shooting 22.

Still working with the sights (range I used only 10yd max) and perhaps will try a red dot at some point but overall quite happy with it. Heck even right out of the box though the sights were high (for me) it grouped nicely.

Glad to hear someone else enjoying theirs, picked mine up about a year ago and so far have added a Tandemkross trigger, hive grips, and extractor, along with a Vortex Viper red dot. Once I got the red dot dialed in, it’s almost like cheating.
It’s the one hand gun that’s almost always in my range bag when I go. It’s a blast to shoot and so easy to clean when I get home.

They are very good value for the price involved and extremely accurate also.

I guess there will be one in my future after all. I thought the Ruger Mark IV Competition would be a nicer gun and bought one about two months ago but found that the Ruger grip angle was too much for my arthritic wrist so I sold it. I should have known that would be the case because my Ruger Precision Rifle had the same grip angle but being a modular rifle (basically a bolt-action AR), the grip could easily be changed for a MagPul with a 1911 grip angle.

Best $300 spent on a pistol for sure!! I really enjoy mine now that S&W replaced the cracked nylon recoil bumper. I have added Tandemkross Hive grips, extended mag release and mag extensions. Also have a $30 red dot and it works fine. Might change out trigger and hammer with Tandemkross items in the future.
