Beretta Neos U22 Magazine Mod

Revision: 03/026/2011

Introduction:

I enjoy shooting my Neos U22 pistol. I have noticed that sometimes the magazine does not lock in place when I push it into the magazine well with my palm. It appears the magazine is not flush with the bottom of the pistol grip. The magazine needs to be about 1/8 of an inch in from the base of the pistol grip to lock in place. I have to push it in with my finger to insure the magazine is locked in place.

I decided to add base pads to the magazine to insure the magazine is pushed far enough into eh magazine well when using my palm.

Tools:

Here are the tools I used for my Neos U22 magazine mod. Beside the tools in the image shown I used a pair of shop scissors.

base1

I bought a 19" inch rubber bungee cord to make the magazine base pads.

You can use super glue for rubber/plastic, epoxy for rubber/plastic, or any other adhesive. I used black silicone adhesive.

marked

I used shop scissors to cut eight rubber blanks from the 19Ē bungee cord. I only have five magazines. I guess I have to buy another three magazines.

drilled

You will need to sand the bottom of the U22 magazine plastic base and the smooth side of the rubber blank. Sanding the surface a bit will insure the adhesive will do its job.

screwed

Once I applied the silicone adhesive I let the adhesive cure for 24 hours. I applied a little weight to help make a good seal.

Tip: I used a small hammer to hit the top of the cutting blade to create a cleaner cut.

You donít have to drill a hole to the rubber base pad. I can easily remove the base without using the hole. If you want to make a hole use can use a drill bit and create a hole turning the bit with your fingers.
