Neos accuracy



Log in to see fewer ads
I've been researching the Neos for my first .22 pistol. I've seen some of the targets you guys have posted showing accuracy, impressive enough for me to want a Neos!!

My question is what kind of accuracy do you get on closer targets? The pics i've seen have been of 40 yds/meters, do you guys have any pics of targets from like 15-20 yds.

I'm sure a Neos will be more accurate than i am, i'm just curious what i could expect in the 15-20yd range??

Thanks

With optics a rest and good ammo for the Neos I have been able to get 10 round groups about 1" in size at 15 to 20 yards. At 8 to 10 yards with the same setup I can cover all rounds with a penny or nickel and that includes the outside of the hole. I wouldn't say they all will do this nor would I say some aren't able to do better. I only know what I have been able to do with two of them. Your mileage may vary. The Neos isn't a target pistol. It is pretty accurate for a plinker pistol. It is pretty reliable and easy to take down to clean. Magazines are cheap at CDNN Investments.

My neos isn't anything to write home about in the accuracy department. But it sure goes bang 99.9% of the time...If it doesn't the ammo is the problem.

I have the 4" neos, and It can destroy soda cans at 25yards easily up to 50 yards with practice. I haven't shot it for groups since i bought it for plinking, which it does wonderfully.

It can hit a soda can at 25 yards all day, Its more than accurate enough to be fun! 100% more fun after trigger job, breaks clean right at 2lbs

I love showing off this pic

not great

I tested a 5.5" (or so, but I'm sure it was longer than 4") Neos last year.
I only shot it at 50 feet, and I fired at standard 50 -foot slow fire pistol targets.
Accuracy was disappointing. OK for a plinker of tin cans, but not what I was looking for.
After getting a couple 3" wide 5-shot groups with open sights, I put a red dot sight on it. This same sight on a High Standard Victor gives me nickel-sized groups at 50 feet. On the Neos it gave me tennis-ball sized groups. About 1.5" to 2".
Then I put a crosshair scope on it. 4X magnification. Fired from a rest at 50 feet. Tried 3 different kinds of ammo. Still the groups were pretty big, basically 8-ring or better on the target. I was hoping to keep them in the 9 and 10 rings.

My Browning Buckmark is accurate enough. The Victor is very accurate. The Neos was not, the Walther P22 was not, and my 4" barreled Ruger MKIII was not.

I have one and to me it's as accurate as my 3 MKII's are... Feels better in the hand too. Not taking anything away from my MKII's, I love them too.

Neos Silhouette Match

Scored a 40 out of 60 with my 6" Neos at the Second Saturday Silhouette Match in Sommerville, Al. 1/5 scale chickens at 15M, Pigs at 20M, Turkeys at 30M, and Rams at 40M. The shoot is 15 targets of each animal, I got 11 Ch, 14 Pig, 11 Turk, and only 4 Rams. The Neos critically called "the phaser" has now proven itself as a viable 22lr pistol here in North Alabama. Oh, this was iron sights with Eley Sport 40gr ammo.
