    I did install the tandemkross victory trigger. I do like the crisp feel of the tandemkross trigger.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did that cost you.

    Does anyone here have one and have you put it through the paces? Is it as good as the Ruger's? Does it stay together during shooting sessions or does it work itself apart? Any information would be appreciated. I am still interested in one but not as enthusiastically as when they dropped. A semi auto .22 is on my short list, third from the top.
    Well, I've got about 8K rounds through mine. It still looks like new, and I've had maybe a half dozen problems with it, all caused by ammo. Never got recalled like the more expensive mark iv did. I know a few others who have gotten one, and haven't heard any regrets.

    I have the Kryptek camo version, I love it. Eats every ammo ive tried so far, shoots really accurate with cheap federal blue box....I was shooting the numbers beside the targets at 25 yards. I just thru a cheap tlr25 red dot that i took off my wifes AR. 2 moa dot I had no problem hitting the 1 inch numbers at 25. It was a little stiff at first but i realized the kryptek camo is painted on and the action wore the paint off, once i cleaned that area it works perfect, even with the paint i never failed to feed, just did it real slow. I love the way it feels in my hand, I plan on buying a carbon fiber threaded barrel and can for it. Debating on buying a trigger, i really like the factory trigger.

    I bought one right around the time they were first released. Unlike my wife's Walther P22, it will eat just about any .22lr ammo. It is very accurate.

    I have 2 Victories that I use for rimfire competition. One for Open and the other for Irons. Out of the box I had no issues other than ammo-related. I found that mine like the Federal AutoMatch and have been flawless, ammo-wise, for nearly 6000 rounds now.

    I have had the screw work loose but I keep an allen wrench in the case and quickly snug it down. But there are other fixes out there that I can employ.

    As I am now a Sponsored Competitor for Tandemkross, both guns are highly #tandemized. Some of the greatest parts out there. If you would like to see the Victories in action, click the link in my sig to be taken to my YouTube page. I did nothing but shoot rimfire steel last summer...

    As for the mods list:

    Open:
    [TK] Victory trigger
    [TK] Hive Grips
    [TK] Halo charging ring
    [TK] Titan mag release
    [TK] Maximus followers
    [TK] Mag basepads
    [TK] GameChanger comp (soon to be GameChanger Pro)
    Striplin C-More mount

    Iron:
    [TK] Victory trigger
    [TK] Hive Grips
    [TK] Halo charging ring
    [TK] Maximus followers
    [TK] Mag basepads
    Dawson Precision Ruger .100 front FO sight

    Coming Soon:
    [TK] Thunder Hammer for both
    Volquartsen Carbon Fiber barrel for both
