    Since the Covid panic it took over a month to get my new Victory 22lr that I ordered. The reason purchased one is that the videos in you tube say that it is very accurate. I have a lot of high velocity 22 ammo like CCI mini mags and Velocitors. I have a Taurus TX 22 that hates any high velocity 22lr ammo . When I opened the box I was surprised at how much the Victory weighed, it is a heavy 22. I took it apart and cleaned it and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was. I previously owned a Ruger Mark III that was a total pain in the butt to clean. I've seen a couple of threads that mention a crack developing or ejection problem I hope S&W fixed those problems. I will shoot it next week and I am looking forward to the experience.

    The Ruger Mark III is kind of a pain to take apart because of the stuff lawyers added. I thought the Mark I was a pain, but there's nothing so bad that a lawyer can't make worse. On the other hand, the Mark IV is amazingly easy to take down. It's the fix Ruger should have instituted 50 years ago.

    That’s the problem. You need to upload a picture.

    It's a beauty!

    I have a SS Browning Camper with a bull barrel, but take it apart to clean, never have. I might as well throw it away, I'd never get that thing back together.

    I clean what I can see, run a snake down the barrel, lube...and nuttin else.

    Still runs fine.
