What’s the Problem?
This safety issue has caused Beretta to immediately recall all .22 caliber NEOS semiautomatic pistols that were purchased after January 1, 2015.
These Beretta pistols may have a condition that allows the pistol to fire, even if the safety lever is engaged. Under certain circumstances, engagement or disengagement of the safety lever itself can result in accidental discharge of the pistol. If the pistol is pointed in an unsafe direction when this occurs, discharge of the pistol can increase the risk of severe injury and even death.
If you purchased a Beretta pistol that is affected by this recall, immediately make sure that the pistol is unloaded, always keeping the weapon pointed in a safe direction, then visit Beretta’s service department recall notice website for instructions on how to return your NEOS pistol to Beretta for repair and return to you.
All eligible Beretta firearms will be retrofitted with a replacement firing pin assembly, free of charge. The new firing pin assembly can be identified either by a circle on the back of the firing pin that includes a red dot in the center, or by a vertical line.
Note: Some pistols are not subject to recall. If you purchased a used Beretta U22 NEOS pistol and do not know whether it was purchased after Jan. 1, 2015, visit the Beretta website to determine whether your pistol is within the serial number range included in the recall. If it is not, or if your pistol has already been repaired or if it was manufactured after Jan. 1, 2015, it is not affected by this recall and no action needs to be taken.
