Dang. I'd forgotten about these things. Why am I looking for a used MkII when I can get the same length barrel in a new gun with a scope base for less?
To answer my own question: "Because the MkII is prettier."

Even though the magazine articles all say the Victory is a hell of a shooter, I brought home another old MkII. :blush:

The manufacturers pay like 10k per gun certification. They also have to supply several copies for testing. Drop tests, trigger weight, etc.
That seems reasonable. At least they're not demanding a technology that doesn't exist, like CA.
I believe different finishes count as different guns.
That, on the other hand, sucks an abundance of ass.

Picked up a S&W Victory at Four Seasons today for $325 today. Good ending to a very stressful week.
Congrats! I love shooting .22. I picked up a MK II a while back and it's been getting a lot of use. Even more so than my H&R Sportsman.

You're still looking for a MK II because you want to build character. :smart:
