I just came back from the range with my new Victory. I can slingshot mine. However it takes a firm pull all the way to the rear stop to do it. Anything shy of that, the bolt won't release. My guess is that it become easier as the gun wears in a bit. I have about 300 rounds through mine now.

Note: It won't do it on an empty mag. To test, lock the bolt back on an empty mag and then eject the mag before attempting to slingshot. ( Or load the mag with a dummy round)
