Does anyone have an idea who sells or how I can source a lower power hammer spring for the Victory?

If you stay within reason it lowers trigger pull.

IMO, reducing the power of the hammer spring is also going to increase the velocity of the slide during firing which will also cause increased wear, but I may be wrong.

Thus within reason. There is a range of operation for things not a set point. I used a Tandemkross hammer and trigger and sit at about 1.5 pounds now.

The firing pin return spring is very heavy on some of these. Some are so heavy it causes missfires out of the box with the stock hammer spring. If you use a reduced power hammer spring you will %%%% sure have to lighten the firing pin spring also

I would keep the stock spring and polish the seer and the hammer notch. It has been a couple of years since I improved mine but it seems like it was fairly straight forward.

Take some of the hammer notch off. Eliminate the creep in the trigger. A reduced strength hammer or striker spring in a .22 almost always leads to problems. Maybe not at first but later as the weak spring gets even weaker it will missfire

I went another route. It is about as light as I might want for now.
