S&W 22 Victory

Post by Russ OR on Tue Jan 19, 2016 9:50 pm

I handled one (NW Armory $379): Feels good in my large hand. The included optics rail has a built fixed rear sight -- - -It has the magazine disconnect safety-rats. -- Trigger wasn't bad- certainly better than the average new Buckmark or Ruger trigger.

Easing the bolt forward pinches fingers.
It immediately ATE the finger of the lady showing it to me-blood blister that broke. She left for a band-aid. It pinched my finger a couple times until I wised up. -- Slingshot is the only 100% safe way to let the bolt forward. 

There's a good 15 minute review online - Got me interested. Too bad the back of the bolt isn't wider-wider tabs or --?

That's a pretty damning fatal flaw for an "entry-level" pistol.

Too bad. Despite the comments in the other thread, I think they look nice.

pistols love blood!! Organic all natural lube.  So who will be the first to send one off to a gunsmith for reworking?

Wife and I each have SW22 and have not had the slightest issue getting the "bolt" to go forward.  One may use the "slide release" or slingshot.  No person I know of would ever ease the bolt home.  . . . and even if one did, I do not see how a piece of a person would get caught.

When the chamber is empty, I prefer to ease the bolt home so I can see how it might happen.

Dear Kurt:   OK.  I suppose when one is in a store one wishes to make as little sound as possible.  However, one will not damage anything by allowing "bolt" to go home vigorously.  I carry little dry-wall plastic things to place in chamber for testing the trigger of a 22.  Cost about 6 cents each and allow one also to evaluate firing pin and extractor and ejector. 

As is clear, one grasps only the back of the bolt.

My wife has difficulty cocking the internal hammer by pulling on the bolt.  A brass rod up the barrel and pushing down takes care of that issue, which is likely only to happen after a failure to fire (has not happened) or a dry-fire.
