    The one you shoot the best. I preferred the Hi-Standard.

    If you intend to compete, the K-22 is a poor choice.

    All the High Standard models of #103,104 106 107 in grades of Citation or Trophy along with the Victor have adjustable triggers. This is a Victor.

    Nothing wrong with Hi-Standard guns what so ever. I have an old Hi-Standard Model M-101. I wouldn't say its a competition accurate gun but for everyday plinking its more than accurate. It will feed any ammo you throw at it including those CCI mini shotshells. I don't believe they still make the Model 101 however.

    All this said i would go the Hi-Standard Victor route but thats just me.

    Shot them all including the Colt Woodsman Target. The one I stuck with is a Ruger MkII Target, tricked out they are hard to beat!

    My other target 22 is a 617 full underlug 8 3/8 barrel.

    I own both the 41 and the Victor. I have changed the trigger pull on my 41 quite a few times but I have never been able to change the trigger pull on the Victor.

    If I were choosing between the 41 and the Victor I would choose the 41. For a couple of reason one Magazines the originals are hard to come by if you do find them they sell for top dollar. the newer after market Magazines don't function well in my Victor. They appear a little long.

    Two I just feel the 41 is more comfortable to shoot. Just my opinion your may vary.

    I can't say enough good things about the M41 S&W. I have an older model with the 5 1/2" barrel and it is a shooting machine. Very accurate and feeds almost anything. Also have a HiStandard 'ShrpShooter' which has a 5" bull barrel and the rear sight is on the top of the sliding bolt. I have had a lot of trouble keeping that sight from drifting although the gun is accurate. I like the magazine relase of the S&W 41 much better than the High Standard - it is a button located right where it should be. All in all I think the M41 is the better gun by quite a margin.

    You mentioned a K-22 also which is at the very top of my list for good .22 handguns. If you intend to carry the pistol for small game hunting or what-ever the K-22 has many advantages over the autoloader. If you are strictly looking for a paper puncher and not a holster gun then go with the M41.

    I have both and the High Standard will not cycle hollow point ammo..Not sure if you really care about that...Trigger in the Victor Militay model I have is the best trigger I have ever experienced....I agree with the go with the one you shoot best considering both are very well made guns...
