Smile S&W Victory

At the local fun store this morning.Itching to pick up a pistol.Looked and fundled many pistols.Was not feeling much.Gentlemen behind the counter was asking the usual.What caliber?What brand?

I tell him I am not sure.When it hits my hands Iíll know.After another dozen or so more fundlings of pistols.This walked out of the fun store with me.

You'll love it! I have one that I bought a whim after handling a friend's. I was working as a range safety officer and so couldn't shoot it, but it sure felt good!

Mine shoots right to POA and it eats everything I've tried (except sub-sonic).

Can't wait to hear you experience at the range!

I bought one when they first came out and the wife and I love to shoot it. Feels great in your hand and very accurate right out of the box. Very easy to take down and clean. The only issue I've heard of is the takedown screw can work out especially if you leave cleaning solvents and/or oil on the threads. Right off, I just went to the local hardware store and bought a thin stainless steel split ring and worked it on the treads of the take down screw. It's tight on the screw so it won't fall off. One of the best guns I've ever bought new!

I have thought about and almost bought a Victory several times. I guess the main reason I didn't get one was I didn't want to have to stock up on yet another type/style magazine.

Always liked the way they looked and felt in my hand.

Unfortunately my shooting was poor today.Note to selfe.Do not shoot 10 rounds of S&W 500 before other toys.Cough....Flinch rest of day.

400 rounds down range.No hiccups.CCI 40 grain round.AE 38 grain HP & Federal 36gr HP.Impressed so far with ability to eat ammo.Mark II does not like Hollow points.

The ones with nylock are the gen 2 screws...no o-rings required, and lock washers which someone mentioned are a really bad idea on what I believe are alloy frames.

Thanks Harold.After searching.
Appears S&W will send nyloc “free” when item wears out.

Better than it loosening up while you're shooting it.
