    Victory Models were .38's not .45.

    I am, of course, confusing the M1917 with the "Victory"... It's good to know I'm among friends.

    Welcome to the forum from NE Georgia. I have a Colt M1917 and think you will like shooting 45 ACP from the old revolver.The picture looks great. Do you know any history around it as we love hearing about old guns.

    To be vintage it must be older than me.

    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy.
