I would go well out of my way to avoid a S&W Victory. While it would be extremely cool if I had a paying job being a product tester, being handed free new guns and ammo to test new products... that call has not come.
I have less than no desire to do S&W's beta testing for them. I spend a lot of time on the S&W forum and I get to see the laundry list of Victory problems and hassles. The loose or dead-locked take down screw and the the extractor that ejects itself while firing, no thanks. Can't imagine more folks active on these pages are knee-deep in S&W love as me, but the stuff coming out of Springfield is questionable at best. Same with Ruger's new and newly recalled Mark IV pistol... this may be a decent one but I'll let other folks spend money to be beta testers for these products that manufacturers refuse to properly test before production.
Great rimfire pistol? The list is crazy long. Quick, easy answer? Ruger Mark II. Another great one... like legendary, "Hall of Fame", grab any second series or later Colt Woodsman, they made scads... tens of thousands and beyond. These guns are inspiring and no, they don't all cost a fortune.
I like to swap brass... and I'm looking for .32 H&R Mag, .327 Fed Mag, .380 Auto and 10mm. If you have some and would like to swap for something else, send me a note!
