RISK OF FIREARM ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE INVOLVING RECENTLY-MANUFACTURED BERETTA MODEL U22 NEOS PISTOLS
THIS RECALL NOTICE IS FOR OWNERS OF BERETTA MODEL U22 NEOS PISTOLS
PURCHASED AFTER JANUARY 1, 2015
Warning: Beretta model U22 Neos pistols purchased after January 1, 2015 may have a condition that allows the pistol to fire even if the safety lever is engaged. In more rare circumstances, engagement or disengagement of the safety lever itself can cause accidental discharge. If the pistol is pointed in an unsafe direction when this condition occurs, discharge of the pistol can create a risk of injury or death.
THIS CONDITION ONLY DEVELOPS AFTER EXTENSIVE USE OF THE PISTOL (AT LEAST 500 ROUNDS FIRED AND MAYBE AFTER AS MANY AS 2000 ROUNDS). FOR THIS REASON, EVEN IF THE SAFETY LEVER ON YOUR NEOS PISTOL WORKS NOW, IT MUST STILL BE RECALLED AND REPAIRED.
If you purchased a Beretta u22 Neos pistol after January 1, 2015, immediately ensure the pistol is unloaded, always keeping the pistol pointed in a safe direction, then visit Beretta U.S.A.’s service department recall notice website at info.beretta.com/neos-recall
for instructions concerning how to return your U22 Neos pistol to Beretta U.S.A. For repair and return to you.
A simple repair procedure eliminates the cause of this recall notice and will allow return and continued future use of your Beretta U22 Neos pistol. Beretta U.S.A. Will pay all costs of shipping and repair.
NOTE: If you bought a used U22 NEOS pistol in recent years and do not know whether it was originally purchased after January 1, 2015, visit the website listed above to find out whether your pistol is within the serial number range involved in the recall. If it is not, if your pistol has already been repaired or if your pistol was made after the production period involved in the recall, it is not subject to this recall and may continue to be used as is.
