    Beretta Neos review

    Anyone have any experience with a Neos? I am thinking about buying one and want to know what the fine people of this forum think. Thanks in advance!

    I've toyed with getting one, the only thing holding me back is where to get pink interchangeable grips so the wifey can shoot it and have it look good for her, too :D

    Well, that, and the price...

    I'll take a shot here.:) I have a Beretta NEOS, (with an S). Had it quite a few years and never had any problems.

    Right now its set up for Aguila Super Colibri, (no powder) and sighted in at 50 ft. - Deadly package for pigeons.

    I like mine, feeds .22 LR 100% and is darn accurate. Always thought it was pretty good value for the bucks.

    Bought a Beretta NEOS for my son several years ago - since then he's put countless rounds downrange with it and no problems at all. Nice little gun.

    I have one. Had it for 3 years and the last time to the range the extractor blew off. Design flaw as this used to be a few other pistols they all had this problem.

    It is a great gun my son begs me to shoot it every time we go to the range.

    If you want parts brownells carries almost all of them. You can buy barrels grips and just about anything else.

    For a plinker it is a great gun. If you are looking for a very accurate 22 pistol get the Ruger or Browning. I am not saying the Beretta is inaccurate just not as accurate as the Ruger MkII MkIII or Browning buckmark.

    Berreta Neo

    I bought my daughter one at a gun show. I do not like the grip as much as my Browning Buckmark, but other than that, it is a fantastic gun. Over 2000 rounds, never jammed. It shoots very well, as accurate as my Browning. It has a rail on top so I put a Red Dot on it. Almost boring to shoot now as you shoot the same hole a lot of the times. I paid 299 for it, but can't seem to find the same deal, or I would buy one for myself. I'm not a .22 guy, but that is about all I can afford to shoot on a steady basis,

    I picked one up a few days ago. It seems to be a good shooter.

    Just got a letter in mail informing me that my Neos may be recalled :(. Seems as though some of the Neos may fire even when the safety is on or even when moved from safe to fire.:eek:

    Beretta has a place to check the serial number to see if your NEOS is affected.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I'm thinking about getting one of these for the kiddos so they will stay away from my buckmark. :D

    We have 2 Neos,,, they shoot great,, mine is a six inch barrel, the wife likes the handier, lighter four inch model. She has blue insert grips and even picked up 2 Neo folding knives at a shop that match each piece. We have never had any trouble with either, I just think the little loop on the rail makes it as ugly as hell. It will keep the rounds in the bull for as long as you care to squeeze them off. For the price, it is very hard to beat. Only time will tell if they hold up like my Ruger standard autos, that will be a trick. I highly recommend them,, good servicable pistols,, just ugly. I would like to have the magazine release relocated,, sometimes when I take my finger out of the guard, it hits it dropping the magazine,, took a while to teach myself to put my finger low instead of a higher position.

    Just a follow up, UPS picked mine up 27 september & returned it today 6 October. Week and 1/2 total turnaround, not too shabby. :)

    Best part is NO scratches, scrapes or other marks on the weapon. It has the new style firing pin in it now, Beretta did an Outstanding job. Pigeons beware!!, life is good!

    Thanks for the firing pin heads up Kenhesr. I checked mine and found it was the original so as soon as I figure out Beretta's confusing requirements I will get the gun out to them. You know, they could just say fill out this form or call this # for an RA number.

    I found the Neos to be sensitive to ammo, found PMC to be the most accurate and feed problem free while the Winchester would cause the most problems. What is yours like? OOPS, forgot to mention that PMC no longer offers this 22 ammo.

    BTW, have you found a special way to loosen the take down wheel? Mine will go on nicely, then when I go to take it down it will be so tight I can't budge it.
    enjoy

    NOTE: To all that are wanting to send their NEOS back for repair. First pack the pistol and ONLY the pistol up in a box I used the original box from them. Don't send mags, sights or anything else with it. Once you have it boxed up go to the website and fill out the form to get it there. UPS will show up the next day to pick it up. They will have a prepaid tag and peal it off and attach it to the box then give you the other half. Then it is out of your hand.

    I packed it in the original plastic box then put it in the cardboard box then I wrapped it up in brown packing paper. Just to be on the safe side.
