The fresh additions to Smith & Wesson’s Performance Center SW22 Victory line feature 6-inch target barrels, muzzle brakes, and Tandemkross hiveGrips.

Introduced at the 147th NRA Annual Meetings in Dallas last week, the new SW22s offer a choice between a 6-inch fluted or 6-inch carbon fiber barrel with either the standard fiber optic sights or augmented with a Vortex Viper 6 MOA red dot.

The four pistol series offers choices between carbon fiber or fluted stainless barrels, with or without Vortex Viper red dots. All have stainless frames.

“The Performance Center SW22 Victory Target pistols are competition-ready and have been designed for the serious target shooter,” said Tony Miele, general manager of the Performance Center. “These pistols have all of the upgrades needed to make them competition-ready, including adjustable target triggers, specialty target barrels, and grips. The Performance Center SW22 Victory Target pistols have custom features, available right out of the box from the Performance Center.”

The carbon fiber model weighs 33.1-ounces while the fluted stainless steel barrel variant tips the scales at 38.2, without the red dot.

The guns are feature-heavy and come standard with a Picatinny-style top rail for optics, a custom muzzle brake, extended mag release, custom polished feed ramp, an adjustable flat-face target trigger and a beveled mag well. Each ship with two 10-round magazines. Retail is $682 for the standard models in either fluted or carbon fiber barrels, with the red dot enhanced pair running $868– the latter upgrade being about $30 cheaper than the “good deal” price of an aftermarket Vortex Viper.
