Default S&W Victory

I have some recent purchases that I haven't shared do to time, and also the picture hosting site I previously used went defunct and all my pics on old threads are no longer there. Let's see if I can figure out this whole thing all over again
Anyhow, here is a pistol that has been on my list for some time, a Smith & Wesson Victory. I've been tempted over the years to just buy a beater on GB but have held out to find a decent one. Got this off GB a few months ago, unfortunately a few others wanted it as well, didn't get it for a steal but still won it with the max I was willing to spend. All numbers match, even the grips. Finish is overall nice, very light holster wear, and a scratch over logo. Screwheads are good, cylinder lockup is tight, and the barrel is very nice. This one is chambered in 38 special. I believe it to be a mid 44 build, will have to submit serial number on S&W forum. I bought a good deal of ammo and will be taking it to the range soon to see what it can do. I love 1911's but wheel guns are just there own class of fun to shoot.
Cheers

Big complement coming from you, sir. No property mark on top, that was my only regret. Just means I'll have to look out for a Navy one that's property marked. And maybe another that was Ftr'd in Lithgow... Just because
Cheers

Thanks, I agree! If I had one like MJ1's I would stay up all night looking at it I will definitely be shooting this one.
