    Sorry, because of so little info provided, only a little information can be given. Gosh guy, you didn't even give the caliber. The Victor was made in 3 frame sizes, large, medium, and small. the Small frame was only in .22. The name Victor was used by H&R as a cut rate brand and catalog sales.. They were made from 1913/1915 until the 1930's. Best I can do. This info is from Jim Hauff's postings.
