I absolutely love my Smith & Wesson Victory. In fact so much so that it swiftly replaced my MK IV Target in our twice monthly tac .22 shoots. The thing just rocks. Enjoy that sucker! The more you shoot it the better it gets. And the Allen head screw take down is a sinch. You can even remove he barrel and really clean that puppy out.
Warning of long post.
I think they are accurate pistols, a fantastic off the shelf trigger and so ergonomic. I could go on.
After shooting mine in rotation with my one MK2, I brought the MK2 in for a VQ trigger and sear job (which is fantastic).
I did, however, have feeding problems on a regular bases despite trying at least nine types of ammo. I didn't shoot it much.
Did a search for fixes and found one. I'm not trying to give you bad luck, but should you have a problem, search " smith-wessonforum.com. There is a thread on a simple ejector fix.
Over 400 rounds and four ammo types without a hitch after bending the ejector. I love mine now.
I wish you lots of fun shooting.
Looking at picking up a .45 full size handgun down the road. I’ve narrowed it down to an M&P or Walther PPQ. Any thoughts or critics on either? The Ruger American in .45 also interests me. Just gathering input from people who have shot them before I get out to a range and try them.
I'm just curious about other owner's experiences with the revolver.
I own one, with ~700rds through it. I've had to send it back twice now, once because the hammer snapped where it connects to the leaf spring and now again because the trigger return spring snapped. Trying to decide if I should...
I am considering one. I actually enjoy shooting .32, though my carry guns are all revolvers. I like the design and the tip-up barrel.
Though Beretta widened the slide on the newer guns, I understand that some owners report frame cracks still. Probably hot ammo, but I am curious about any...
I was out shooting a few rounds through a High Standard Sentinel today, and had an issue happen two times that puzzles me. It's a 9 shot .22 LR revolver. I loaded it up with good ammo that's been working fine in other guns, and shot about six times without issue. The gun then, for lack of a...
I was looking for a pre lock Smith 586 when I spotted a DW model 15-2 357 6" ribbed shroud barrel made in 1981. I didn't know much about the Dan Wesson revolvers until recently. I'm going to take a look at it later today. It's a Monson, Ma. gun that have a reputation as a tack drivers although...
