I have a "3rd Gen" version using ideas from Pq49z's and Trent's great work with some added (hopefully) improvements. Should be done in a couple weeks. I'll put up some pictures when it's completed. Thanks again to both of the "pioneers" who posted their work. Also doing some additional mods I'll put up.

Just curious if that machining on the bore has popped up often of it's even something to be concerned about.

Compared to my Buck Mark, it's easier to take apart, even the parts within the slide. You can get the extractor out without any tools because they conveniently put a tab for your thumbnail to push back on, there. Easy to get back in, too.

And the recoil spring and guide rod are pretty easy to deal with as well. Also, the plastic block containing the firing pin assembly is a lot easier to get out than the one on the Buck Mark because there's a machined opening below it that allows you to push it out easily.

The firing pin assembly is very similar to that of the Buck Mark, and easy to take apart, as well.

However, there is one huge difference between my Victory and my Buck Mark. And that is the finish inside the barrel!

I looked down the barrel, and thought, at first, that someone at the store might have taken it out and fired a few hundred rounds of Thunderbolts, such that the barrel was very leaded up.

But after a few passes with a bore brush with Ballistol, and some dry patches, looking down the barrel was pretty horrific!

I wonder what some of you other people's barrels look like. I only grabbed a few fast shots of it, but the whole length of it looks just as bad as what these show. I wasn't able to see what I was photographing because I was using a flash, so these are not "cherry picked" to be the worst areas. They're just what I happened to manage to get the camera aimed at with everything tediously balanced on my desk.

What do you folks think of this?
















I'm pretty disgusted.
I just picked up my Victory two days age, and will take it to the range tomorrow. I have to say I was a bit concerned after seeing your pictures, but mine had a mirror-like pristine looking bore. I'll see what it looks like after a couple hundred rounds. What I can say already is that it looks and feels great. The trigger is sweeeet! Disassembly was a snap for my cleaning before the first trip to the range.

Wait, are you saying that you purchased the grips? I just checked the Kentucky Gun Co. website and did not find them.

A friend just got his threaded barrel Victory, we had a good long look at the barrel before he accepted it, both his and mine have looked just fine and mine at least shoots quite acceptably. Don't think he's shot his yet.
