Introduced in Italy in 2004, the Beretta U22 Neos Carbine Kit has finally made its way stateside.

The kit includes a 16″ barrel (1:16 twist), forend, stock (which replaces pistol grip), weaver rail, adjustable aperture rear sight and TruGlo front sight. No gunsmithing is needed to install it.

The Kit will retail for about $280. Not cheap!

    to be honest never new much about the neos my aunt had one and when she past away i bought it off my uncle for $125 with no intentions on every shooting it... like any other fire arm that didnt last. me and my wife both just absolutely love it we have a total of about 15 guns and we play with the neos more than any of them. i just found out about the conversion kit legal or not i just got to have it!!!!

    You can buy the U22 Neos here in Canada. I am wondering if anyone has any info on the carbine kit and associated laws. My current understanding is that the carbine kit may be legal due to other firearms allowing conversion kits. However, if the carbine kit is equipped it is still considered a pistol not a long rifle.
