I absolutely love this pistol. Very accurate and with bull barrel it’s not going to overheat.
If you use Amsco 36 grain hollow point ammo it will probably jam on the ramp on first shot. After that works fine. Problem is they use a litt too much wax so it tends to stick in the clip. I tried three other well known brands without a problem. Sense I have quit a bit of Amsco, I bought some after market springs, problem solved.

It%u2019s a Smith and Wesson target pistol. They simply don%u2019t make junk and this is no exception. Fit and finish are exceptional, reliability has been perfect over hundreds of rounds and the sheer size of the aftermarket for this pistol platform will keep you customizing for ages (not that it needs anything if you don%u2019t compete). It%u2019s good enough out of the box that I would buy another one of these before I%u2019d buy a similar pistol from another manufacturer.

Reviews are, of course, opinions and we all have them. This Smith & Wesson Victory is an outstanding 22 cal pistol. Everything about it is my idea of a great shoot it everyday type of weapon. It feels great in my hand with a "semi-hefty" weight, a very comfortable grip, and great balance. The slide action is smooth and responsive. I absolutely love the sights. The rear and front neon green dots make for a quick and easy sight picture. I'm older and wear bifocals and found acquiring the sights coming up to aim was a sinch. Very easy weapon to love. I choose the threaded barrel model so that I could add a compensator. It's definitely not needed on a 22 LR but it sure looks neat. Overall the Victory meets or exceeds all my ideas of a great everyday pistol.

Love this handgun. Fits well in my hand. Well balanced. I was more accurate with this firearm than I am with my 38 that is my everyday carry weapon. May not have the punch of a larger caliber gun but my thought is that if I can put a bullet exactly where I aim, then a smaller hole is just fine. It's still a direct hit. Am I right?

The S&M Victory is one of the current bargains in the pistol world. You will know when you wrap your hand around it. I put a scope on mine and shoot the whiskers off striped gophers. Longest shot off bags was at 73 yards. Dead gopher.

I am very happy with Buds Layaway program. I was able to purchase a S&W Victory handgun and it's great to shoot. I received the gun from my local FFL and it was brand new just like Buds advertised on their website. Great place to do business with and I going to enjoy shooting my first handgun. Buds also has the best customer service on the phone or on the computer. The employees or volunteers are a great help when I have questions about a firearm. Thanks Buds.

Only had it to the gun range once....but so far I like it a lot. Very nice trigger, and it was able to cycle without a problem with CCI Quiet Semi-Auto ammo.

At this price, this has to be one of the best .22 pistols deals going. The fiber optic sights are very clear and the pistol is very accurate - on par with the Ruger Mark III . Works with all ammo I've tried. The threaded version makes it ready for a suppressor or brake, and with the picatinny rail it is ready for a red dot sight. I own at least 10 .22 handguns, and this is right up there with the best of them for 3 times the money.
