For Rapid

Hey Rapid,
I will answer you questions. It is indeed a Beretta Neos. It appears to be a Inox model, meaning stainless barrel. For $220 you could go to Galleryofguns.com and with a few more dollars, $230ish, and buy a new one with a lifetime no questions asked warranty. Just a thought. There is also a carbine kit for the Neos. I have both the pistol and the carbine kit. Great gun. I love mine. I don't have a holster for mine but I read somewhere that one is available. It looks like the one pictured is a 6 inch model. If you have any questions just ask. Have fun, Tony

There's a used one for sale for about $220... Less than half the price of the Ruger MkIII I'm lusting for.
I like it just fine, though I can't compare it to the Ruger, never shot one of those. I've also never considered holstering it, so I'm no help there, either. It's a good little pistol - more accurate than me, already has a rail for a scope. Some folks don't like it because it looks like a ray gun, but I like it - either that or I'm just contrary enough to get one anyways.

I haven't seen one for more than $250 in a while. Friend of mine just bought one for $250 last week. They're usually on sale for $230 or so. I've had one for 5 years and have never had a problem with it. Works great but spits a little when using high velocity .22 rounds. I threw on a $50 red dot and its a ton of fun

Yessiree!

The before pics are the .45 slide that came with it nd the after are with the marvel precision unit 2 installed.

Haven't shot either yet. Hopefully I'll get some time in soon.

Do you think the 22 conversion is going to be picky about ammo, or is that slide pretty light?

The slide is billet aluminum and pretty light.

Theres a review online somewhere of a guy shooting both the unit 1 and unit 2 with a variety of ammo.

As with any auto .22 high velocity yields better results.

Are there different types of .22 conversions for the 1911? I could have sworn that I saw one were the slide didn't move, but operated kind of like a Ruger 10/22 with an internal bolt moving back and forth.

All 22 conversions for the 1911 are a full working slide although none allow the slide to stay back on the last round which is fine since a .22 1911 is not a combat gun. On the conversions it might SEEM like the slide isn't moving because there isn't ANY recoil and the slide is so light, it doesn't feel like the slide is racking back and fourth.

so I went to the Big City yesterday

supposedly to get some new tires for the Great White Truck. And I DID get the tires...

But

Something else followed me home


I've GOT to quit going to gun shops...

Haven't shot it yet, but spent some time on it this morning learning how it works and cleaning and buffing and making it mine. Getting pretty good at dis/assembly and only need to thunk it once with a mallet to take the barrel/receiver assembly off the frame.

Any recommendations on a red dot scope? I know T@$(O is a 5 letter word in the Scope world, is there anything decent available for $50? Tru Glo?

Some do.

I believe the advantage arms kit has a last round locking slide as well as the ceiner kit. (both ID'd by the steel insert with two flush bolts where the lock slot is)

Botha are cheaper than the marvel Precision units but the ceiner is money order only and you'll be damned if you can find any advantage arms kits.

The marvel unit one has a breech style slide like the S&W 41 so you can mount optics on the top for an actual target pistol but it's also about $100 more then the unit two.

Ditto the old Kart 22 conversions.

Don't know if you have one of these but if not, GET ONE! Ultimate Clip Loader!

I can load a magazine in 5 seconds. Holy Shootin' Bricks, it makes it soooo much easier at the range. More time shootin', less time loadin' and no more Ruger thumb!

The Colt Ace conversion unit locks back the slide. There were a couple different Ace designs and I dont think all of them locked back but some did. I have a Ace conversion with floating chamber and for some reason think that was the key.
