    I'm not sure why you would do it.. BUT...

    We just bought a Beretta U22 Neos .22LR..

    It looks like they make a Carbine kit for it..

    Like I said.. Can someone explain why this is a GREAT Idea for a .22LR??




    Here is the Pistol as it is Standard..

    Yes...

    I was looking into a carbine in .45ACP for close range deer hunting. Researched that velocity increased up to about 15" of barrel length...after 15" of barrel, velocity began to drop again. Their test barrels went up to 24". That 24" barrel lost 82 fps from the same load shot from the 5" 1911. They had mentioned that most pistol calibers (non-magnum) would have the same effect. Also, this effect was more noticeable with the heavier for caliber bullet weights.

    The most recent article I read about this was in December 2010 issue of "Handloader". Article was called "Barrel Length and the .45 ACP!"

    .22LR ammo is cheaper then 9mm or 40 S&W ammo. Now the only thing is what is the cost of the kit and gun?

    U22 Neos Inox Stock No: JU2S4 Price: $375.00
    Beretta U22 Neos Carbine Kit .22LR Stock No: JU22CK1 Price: $249.00


    If it is to be successful It better be less then it is for a .22LR rifle and pistol bought separately. As my Sig Sauer 522 was only $500 after taxes After buying extra magazines, a red dot sight sight, a bore snake for cleaning and a case to carry it to the shooting range the price went to $650.

    So after looking up the prices you can get one for what I got my Sig Sauer 522. Also the price of the U22 Neos was $275 so that would make it cheaper then my Sig 522.

    I added most of the trinkets from the hi point website. Added about 150 to the cost. Well worth it to me. Havent seen any zombies since I got it. The word must be out..

    Quite reliable, mine has been flawless so far (about 1.5K rounds) other than one jam right out of the box. Nothing since then.

    I have a Ruger PC 4 in .40 S&W that I like. I don't care for Bill Rugers 10 round magazines though
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    I agree completely.

    I've owned several over the years (Marlin Camp Carbines in 9mm and .45 ACP, a Winchester '94 Trapper in .45 Colt, a Rossi '92 SRC in .357Mag and a Uberti Winchester '73 in .45 Colt) and they are extremely fun shooting and accurate out to the 50-150 yards zone that is usually beyond a handgun's practical range.

    I intend on expanding the collection as funds are available and I come across the guns. I want a '73 and '92 in .38WCF (.38-40), a couple '92's in .44, one solid frame in .44Mag and a takedown in .44 Special along with probably a '92 (maybe a '73) in .32WCF (.32-20). Then there's the project I've had running through my mind about finding one of the hard to find Uberti '66's in .44 Special and replacing the barrel and lifter to convert it to only shoot .44 Russian (the closest round presently available to the original .44 Henry Flat).

    If properly loaded, most of the mid and large bore chamberings are quite capable of killing deer sized and smaller game reliably out to 75 to 100 yards if the shooter is capable of doing their part. With their heavier weight and added point of contact, many novice big bore handgun shooters find them far more comfortable shooting the magnum pistol calibers and/or heavier bullet weight full power loads than with a handgun.

    In the home/self defense role, they maximize the potential of the pistol caliber rounds they shoot while staying in a handy package that is still maneuverable in tight quarters indoors.

  11. how about a car 15 in .45 cal [and use glock mags]
