Hey! Brand new, here. My first post. Just bought a Victory. Plain Jane version, not threaded. I'm in PA and when I went to pick it up the NICS (LGS told me this has been happening a lot lately) was down so I'll have to try again. Gonna put a few hundred rounds thru it first. Looking for a red dot recommendation below $200. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Welcome! and congratulations on your new Victory. The one I bought was used- and a very nice shooter- extremely accurate. It wears a Holosun 507c. We have a love/hate thing going on. I believe it costs $200 from some places. It is a great sight in terms of visibility and precision. However, I've found it difficult to acquire a sight picture very quickly; apparently, this is more ME than the Holosun.
If I had it to do over again, I'd buy a different red dot. Not sure which one.

I have a Victory with a 507c and it works great for me. I find with the proper thumbs forward grip the dot comes right up. No problem finding it.

I do have a Tandemkross Hive Grip and Shadow Mount that might help.

I have a very inexpensive ADE RD3-006A reflex red dot (actually green) that I have on my Glock 17 and it has worked out very well. I have another one that I mounted on my Victory on the rail - the red dot comes with a mount for the rail or you can mount it on a Shadow Mount or any other compatible mount. It will fit any mount that will take a Burris Fastfire or Sightmark Mini-Shot sight. I think I paid about $60 for it. It has a 3 MOA dot, but you do have to change the battery from under the sight which could be a deal breaker for a lot of people. Of course, if you're willing to spends upwards of $200 you can get a much nicer sight. I've been very happy with mine and they do seem to hold zero, even on the Glock. Hope this helps.

Welcome!

Just wanted to welcome you to the forum and congratulate you on getting your new Victory. Although I do not use a red dot sight on mine, I have added some Tandemkross parts, trigger and halo, to mine and have a new set of Altamont wood grips ordered also. The Victory is a very nice pistol and I'm sure you are going to really like yours.

Congratulations on your Victory!!! My PC version was bought slightly used and performs well.

I chose a Fast Fire III, which I prefer for configuration and reliability. I've got several thousand rounds down range with it. The flu has changed my home range group match schedule, but I get a little individual practice now & then.

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on getting a S&W SW22 pistol!

I would suggest shooting it a good amount before deciding on any aftermarket items, especially the trigger, as IMHO (and in the opinion of many others) the SW22 has one of the best out of the box triggers of the .22 semiauto pistols available.

I've changed nothing mechanically on mine, though after finding myself not caring for the hard and slippery factory grips I did some research and opted for G10 material grips from a company called Bullseye Grips, available on Etsy. These particular grips are identified as "Dark Grey/Black-G10-Made in the USA-Sunburst Pattern" (see link below), which unfortunately are currently sold out, though the thumb rest variety and other colors are available.

The G10 material and the pattern cut into these grips offer a very "grippy surface", and the deep(er) cut on the left side of the grip affords a much easier time of operating the magazine release without modifying the position of your hand on the grip.



Bullseye Grips for SW22 Victory - Grey/Black - G10 - Starburst pattern...

Enjoy!

As DrewBone said, I'll be putting a bunch of different ammo thru before I make any changes. Always good advice. Just picked up the pistol today. Cleaned and oiled before shooting. Little surprised that it was really dry out of the box. I think grips will get changed. Still thinking if sights will be worth the change. The only red dot that I have used is a Holosun 403 which is on my Ruger 9mm carbine. Easy to pick up the dot and accurate but looks a little large for the Victory. Can someone explain the differences between a red dot like that and an open reflex like a Holosun 507? Are they both easy to pick up the dot? As accurate? I will be using the Victory mainly for target and range out to maybe 50-75 yards (that's all I have available on a regular basis). Thanks

The KIDD 10/22 pistol with brice I recently put together carries a Holosun 403 with a simple green dot redicle, the Canik at bedside wears a 507 with the larger circle green redicle. To me it seems the larger redicle on the 507 makes for quicker target acquisition and the small dot on the 403 allows better accuracy. The 403 is 1/2 the price of the 507.
