Default Victory Failure to Feed

Was shooting a Precision (bullseye) sectional match (NRA) this afternoon at the club. I had 3 failure to feed of the second round 3 times from 3 different mags. The round was cocked in the ejection port and loosened the bullet from the case also. All mags are S&W. I used Aquiila and Federal match ammo.

The gun was field stripped and cleaned and lubed after shooting last week. I have about 1000 rounds thru the Victory. Should the mag springs be replaced? Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

At my range, over the past 9 (?) months or so, three of my friends each bought S&W Victory .22's. All three had the same problems. All three had to go back to the mothership and IIRC one went back twice... I don't know about the other two, but they are both shooting Buckmarks and Rugers. I almost bought one, but hesitated just long enough. I have no idea with S&W did to repair their guns. I'm guessing S&W has it ironed-out by now... send her back.

I have had the gun going on 2 years and this problem just started. I will give CS a call next week to see what they have to say.

Please let us know how this turns out for you. Mine has been trouble free so far. That's strange how yours just started acting up all of a sudden.

Hope you get it figured out. My Victory has been a joy to shoot, eats all the types of ammo I have going on two years now.

I hate to send back to S&W at this time as our bullseye runs 4 more weeks. Then we go outdoors to shoot plates!!! But I will keep this post updated.
