Default S W 22 Victory

I like my new Victory, and have fired maybe 200 rounds, with only two failures to chamber...Winchester Super X 38 gr. HP ammo; apparently both missed the chamber, bashed against the breech face and were bent in a semicircle.

Magazine safety: I've never been a fan, and would like to deactivate it.

Tandemkross apparently offers a device to replace it, but I understand it may cause poor magazine ejection. I LIKE the way my Victory ejects its magazines!

Other than Tandemkross, is there a device offered that will deactivate the magazine safety, and still retain the positive magazine ejection, or a reversible DIY "fix"?

Why bother as it works great the way it is?

Just remove it(but keep it in case you need warranty work). I removed mine and there was no change in mag ejection.

I have left my Victory's magazine safety intact. I like the way the magazine is ejected positively and the safety doesn't bother me at all.

I've got the TK replacement in my Victory. It's the same as the original except the part that interfaces with the safety is missing. You still have the part that ejects the magazine.

You could just cut the top of the original off if you'd rather. A cut with a pair of cutters and a minute with a file would do it.
