    Developed recent interest in target shooting and I am looking for a High Standard Victor. I would prefer a 4 1/2" barrel manufactured in Hamden Conn. Will trade cash for gun what do you have that is gathering dust?

    Be patient, they are worth waiting for. I am sure one will break loose eventually.

    Good luck in your quest.

    I have a Victor that has only been shot 2 or 3 times in the last 30 years.
    It is LNIB, no marks or dings.

    Abigail...
    If you want one to shoot, rather than "collect"...I have one in what I believe is NRA Very Good condition if you're still looking. Drop me an email...

    If you're looking for a 4.5" because of balance & weight preference, remember that the steel barrel rib was changed to aluminum alloy in 1974 (the third year of Victor production,) so a 5.5" barrel with later alloy rib might work for you (a 5.5" with steel rib is quite heavy. I love it, but you may not.) Also, if the 5.5" is all you can find (5.5" is more common, while the 4.5" is rarer & pricier) but it is still heavier or more muzzle-heavy than you want, even with the alloy rib, you can easily remove the under-barrel weight (but if you do, keep it safe, some day you'll want it.) An alloy-rib Victor is easy to spot, the front sight rises directly out of the rib and is not on a raised base like the steel-ribbed one is, and the rear of the rib is cut off vertically right at the back edge of the rear sight blade, whereas a steel rib projects back beyond the rear of the rear sight blade. Be patient & good hunting, your gun was made for 6 years so they're out there. Phil E
