Owned a Neos, shot a Walther plenty. To me the Walther is at best a small, fun little plinker. Not especially accurate, a bit finicky about ammo. While my friend hasn't any problems so far, there...

I too suspect the little "C" retaining clip flew off into parts unknown. One suggestion is to disassemble your BM inside a clear plastic bag that will catch any flying parts. It happened to me but...
