This old one got resurrected, since I mentioned that I was intending to buy the new Victory 22, well I got one a little while back and have had a chance to take it out a few times, the most recent was yesterday, I must say this is one outstanding 22 pistol! Very accurate right out of the box, and very dependable, so far it has fed everything I have thrown at it without a single hangup.

I mounted a Vortex Venom red dot on it, great combination for us older folks who can't see the sights that well anymore. The target is 30 rounds of CCI Std Velocity at 25 yards, very good group except for the one called flyer on the lower left.

Same exact scenario here. Got it for her for Xmas. Two months later she bought a Shield9 and had a perfect qualifying score last week. Was the perfect stepping stone.

Now I plink the 22c.......and just love that thing

I've got an M&P FS .22 (which is actually made by Carl Walther) and I love it. I've had a couple of fail-to-eject on 30+ yr old ammo, but other than that it's worked flawlessly and very accurate.

Lifetime of 22 pistols.

How is the construction and what kind of material used for the endurance factor? Some have aluminum slides correct?

Materials, the 22/45 usually has a steel receiver, although some have an aluminum receiver, all the 22/45 models have a polymer frame. I recommend you don't get a 22/45 unless it has the detachable grip panels, the cheaper ones don't and the ergonomics aren't good, the models with the detachable grip panels are thicker and fit the hand bettre.

The S&W Victory has an aluminum frame and a steel slide, super easy to take down, one allen head screw in front of the trigger guard holds it all together, I really like this design. The ergonomics of the standard grip are excellent.
