Anyone seen a Neos carbine kit yet?

    The wife was looking thru a gun rag today and spotted a picture of one. She's had her heart set on one of those gold finished buckmarks, but now she's decided a Neos with the carbine kit has more of a cool factor. But I haven't seen any. I guess I could get the Neos pistol and wait, but that woman has no patience.

    Look around in the Beretta forum. I haven't heard great things about the Neos trigger, but is supposedly gets better with time. I have a Buckmark though and the trigger is excellent.

    That's one of the points I'm trying to make with the wife. I myself can not stand the Neos. I was one of those who was waiting on the edge of my seat for them to come out and when I finally got to hold one was wholey unimpressed. It feels like a water pistol in my hand. But the only gun we've ever agreed upon was the Taurus 650, so it shouldn't surprise me that she wants something I don't like (if I had my rathers, she'd get the cute little Mitchell Victor I ran across).

    Scratch that whole idea.

    On a whim, I just checked Midway to see if they had them listed yet. They are supposed to be in stock on Aug. 14 with a price of $259.00:what: :what: :what:

    I can buy her a pretty decent .22 rifle to replace her Marlin mod 60 for that money.

    It's 249.99, don't know where you got the 259.99 from.

    And if you have a C&R license or dealer license with them, it's only 229.99.

    I think I will get one later, it is a bit much as it stands right now though.

    I think the Beretta forum had a fluff and buff instruction set for improving the trigger on the Neos, seems pretty easy to do.

    Sorry, my bad, only glanced at it when I saw it was over 2 bills.

    Still, at $229 I can still buy her a whole rifle.

    Heck, you can buy two.

    But as I found out when I bought my wife a Sig P230... it wasn't a P232. :p

    My local shops sells the black 6" NEOS for $199, I picked one up and few weeks ago and I love it so far, just wish the grip was a little larger for my hands.

    Hrm, my wife's NEOS has a GREAT trigger. Likes breaking a glass rod, nice and crisp, although it could be just a tad smoother in my opinion, but that thing is a damn tack driver, shoots tiny groups, and consistantly(as in every single time) shoots to point of aim. We are both very impressed with it, as is everyone who shoots it. It does feel a bit goofy in the hand but there is no doublt the design works. It is comfortable, just feels a bit goofy. My complaint is the location of the safety. Very much a pain in the ass to manipulate with any kind of a shooting grip.
