new 7.5 Neos



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought a new 7.5 Neos last weekend, and just had a chance to shoot it today. My plan is to scope it and use it for squirrel hunting, possibly in our May season, and later this year. I must say I was very impressed with it. I use a couple of different styles of 40 grain uncoated, and copper coated CCIs. I also used some of the inexpensive 36 grain copper coated Winchesters in the 550 pack.

The pistol worked perfectly with all 3 brands, and there wasn't much in the way of group size difference, and little point of impact with the 3 different cartridges at 15 yards or so. It wasn't really any formal shooting, just punching paper with a wadded up hoodie on a table for a sandbag. I would say everything was an inch or less. If you used the iron sights for rabbits, changing between the 3 cartridges I shot today wouldn't even matter.

The only thing I didn't care for was the trigger, but I believe I am about to send it to have a little work done on it by a fellow on this forum. Can anyone give any info on what kind of groups they are getting with a scope, and a trigger job? I will be hunting in tall oaks, and black walnut trees for gray, and red squirrels.

Thanks

Tommy

What did you mean by "new",,,

What did you mean by "new",,,
Did you find an actual new one,,,
Or did you just mean new to you?

I've been trying to find a 7.5" pistol or barrel for three years now,,,
If you ever get tired of that gun please let me know.

That is some great accuracy for sure!

Aarond,

I found it new at Academy in North Richland Hills, (close to Ft. Worth) TX. They still have them. I was there yesterday browsing around. I bet you can go to your local Academy, and order one. Mine was $268.00.

Badmongo,

Hearing the kind of accuracy you are getting has me thinking that I may not be happy with a red dot scope. I already have one, but not sighted on the pistol yet.

I have something similar on a center fire rifle. It seams like the dot covers a lot of real estate on a hog at 100 yards, Its enough to not make me feel uncomfortable with neck shots at that distance. I am thinking it would drown out a squirrels head at 15 or 20 yards. I actually wish the front sight was a little more visible. I could probably do without the scope.

I mounted that red dot on the far rear of my Neos rail, and it really evened out the balance ALOT. Whatever I end up with will certainly help the balance of the 7.5" barrel.

Thumbs up My Beretta NEOS 7.5" and RUGER GOV'T 6 7/8" pistols.








I originally bought the 4.5" pistol.
Then, the 7.5" bbl.
Then, the carbine kit.
Then, the 6" pistol.

I'm still looking for the cheekpiece and buttstock pads for the Carbine Kit.
I still need to take a few more pictures and then I'll be looking for the extra parts; a case and some foam to put it all into.

That 7.5" bbl. version is a good looking gun, isn't it?

OK, Here is a quick pic of mine. I don't remember if I mentioned how nice and smooth the mags are, I cant find a burr on either one. I've owned quite a few handguns in several calibers, and these are by far the highest quality mags I have ever seen. I also like the sight adjustment tool that came with it.

Beretta hasn't made the 7.5" model for several years now,,,
I am absolutely astounded that you found a new one in a store.

I own a 4.5" pistol, a 6" pistol, and a third pistol permanently mounted in the Carbine kit.

I really want a 7.5" pistol to fill out the set.

But honestly, the picture in post #10 looks like a 6" barrel to me,,,
Compare it with the 7.5" pictured in post #9 and look how much longer it is.

It looks to me that you have a 6" barrel.

I measured it, and you are right! They are using a 7.5" display card on it at Academy, and I never thought to measure it. I still like it though

Thank you Sir, I agree. I really like it. I think it shoots as good or better than a Ruger I once had. I guarantee that reassembly is easier

When I bought, I looked at the Buckmark, and the Neos, without considering the price. The Neos fit my hand better. I am not saying the Buckmark isn't a FINE pistol, but The Neos felt just right in my hand.

My 24 year old son and I were hitting nailed bottle caps on a log at 15 yards pretty reliably. He was using a Heritage revolver, and I was using the Neos. I think I may try the Freestone County Tx. squirrel season that started today with open sights. We were both at least minute of squirrel head LOL

I was also able to reliably ring a cowbell .22 target at about 50 yards! I totally love this pistol. I will get a proper front sight as soon as the supplier I located gets them back in stock.

About that fiber optic sight,,,

Are you referring to the sights from EWK Arms?

If so it will be worth the wait.

I ordered two from them and the difference for my old eyes was amazing.

They come in green and red so I ordered one of each,,,
I honestly don't know which I like better though,,,
Mainly it helps me recognize the guns.

I have 2 of the 4.5" barrels as well as a 6"-er,,,
The 4.5 "-ers see the most use.
