Smith & Wesson announced the introduction of the company’s next generation target pistol with the unveiling of the SW22 Victory. Engineered as a modern interpretation of the classic target pistol, the new SW22 Victory is a fully featured .22 LR pistol with a convertible design suitable for multiple sporting applications. Dependable, easily modified and inherently accurate, the Smith & Wesson handgun represents a new breed of sport pistol created by the legendary firearms manufacturer. 

The new SW22 Victory is constructed on a single-action, enclosed hammer-fired, blowback semi-automatic design. Chambered in .22 LR, the SW22 Victory comes highly featured with innovative design qualities that include a match-grade, interchangeable barrel for superb accuracy on the range or in the field along with a simple one-screw takedown design. The pistol’s high-end features, modern styling and enriched functionality place the SW22 Victory in a category of its own with an affordable price to match. 

“The SW22 Victory was designed to fill a need for a highly versatile, accurate and affordable .22 LR target pistol,” said Jan Mladek, General Manager of the Smith & Wesson brand. “Whether it is a new shooter learning the fundamentals of handgun marksmanship or the experienced target shooter who is trying to reach the next level of proficiency, the SW22 will deliver many personal victories along with years of shooting enjoyment.” 

Factory-made with a 400 series stainless steel heat-treated bolt, slide, frame and barrel, the SW22 Victory is as durable as it is accurate. The standard model is fitted with a 5.5-inch match-grade barrel with a 1:15-inch, six groove, right hand twist. The SW22 Victory comes standard with a fiber optic front sight and an adjustable green fiber optic rear sight. The pistol is also standard with an alloy trigger with adjustable trigger stop. Fire controls on the pistol include a single-sided thumb safety, slide stop and magazine release. 

The SW22 Victory is well-balanced and fits naturally in the hand with its ergonomically designed, high strength removable polymer grips and unloaded weight of 37.4 ounces. Additional dimensions of the pistol include an overall length of 9.2 inches, a height of 5.6 inches and a slim overall width of 1.3 inches. The target pistol is shipped complete with two 10-round capacity magazines. 

The versatility of the SW22 Victory is further enhanced with an included lightweight Picatinny-style rail for easy mounting of optics or other accessories. Smith & Wesson has teamed up with several of the industry’s top holster, barrel and accessory manufacturers so that owners can personalize their SW22 Victory with high quality accessories that are immediately available from various providers.  

The SW22 Victory has an MSRP of $409 and is sold with a limited lifetime warranty and a lifetime service policy. 

The new Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory will be featured at the 2016 SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range and in the Smith & Wesson booth throughout the convention.
