Purchased a Victor this morning

1105 27
Think I got an OK deal. No box and only one mag and no barrel weights (already sounding bad :) ).
In any event gun is a East Hampton model with serial SH24565. Fellow forum member had advised me on what serials made up the Houston range and so walked in with that information.
As stated is just a pistol and a magazine.
Took me a while to figure out mag release.
Finish is pretty darn nice. Did look it over for any signs of fractures on the slide. I did not see any.
Price was $750. There was no negotiation as the pistol was on consignment..
Looking forward to trying it out and perhaps finding a weight for it.
No doubt you guys will tell me the folly of my ways on this one which is why we have forums like this.
But after getting my Supermatic and shooting it and being told that the Victor might be even a better target pistol, I took the opportunity to get one.

My screw mount 107 Sport King’s factory barrel was horrible. Chamber looks like was done with a hand drill and larger diameter at leade. No doubt why it still looked as new as all cases stuck in chamber. Always wanted a Victor so made one out of it! Still have the factory barrel and will likely put a SS liner in it one day as staying in the black from a machine rest was doubtful.

I think you will be happy with your latest acquisition. My only issue was the reject barrel they happened to assemble it with. Th rest of fit and finish is much better than most manufacturers of that era and far better than current manufacturers. I have zero issues with aftermarket magazines as well. Always wanted a Victor after my older brother bought his in the mid seventies. Watched him shoot flushed Grouse out of the air several times with his and would outshoot most rifles at fifty yards. Like a fool he sold his and never found anything that would replace it as an extension of his arm.
