    Need help with Beretta Neos trigger job.

    I am trying to replace the sear spring on my U22 Neos to lighten the trigger pull a little as described in the hexidismal trigger job. For the life of me I cannot get the sear housing screw out of the sear housing. I know the screw is secured with Red Loctite and I have tried heating with a hair dryer to no avail. The screw head itself is not standard and others have recommended using a "modified" scredriver which I have not tried yet. If anyone has succeeded in doing the trigger job on their Neos I would appreciate any guidance.
    Thanks.

    Re: Need help with Beretta Neos trigger job.

    I've done that trigger job on my Neos. You absolutely need a screwdriver bit to fit that screw. It is a gunsmith cut flat bladed screwdriver.

    I have a cheap-o multi-tip gunsmith screwdriver set but the bit I needed to fit the screw head wouldn't fit into the opening on the sear housing. I had to file the body of that bit to clear it.

    You need a near perfect fit of screw driver to screw in this situation to transfer all the torque properly. When you put that screw back in, just use blue Loctite after you're satisfied with the sear spring you install.

    One important thing about that hexidismal trigger job. I found that you don't need to polish every little surface to get improvement. The one thing you absolutely must "polish" is the inside of the sear plunger as well as the outside of the sear plunger. The inside is cut really rough and contributes to most of the gritty trigger. I had to use a tiny bit of rolled up emery cloth and spin it in the bore of the sear spring plunger.

    Good luck!

    Here's the cheap gunsmith screwdriver set I mentioned. You can find something like this at about any place that sells guns. I got mine at Academy.

    It is a decent starter set. It will get you going until you decide to upgrade to higher quality.

    Chicharrones-thanks for the quick reply-I will definitely invest in the screwdriver set. What about the heat? Is a hairdryer enough? Soldering iron? heat gun?

    Thanks,

    I didn't use any heat in my situation, just a good fitting gunsmith screwdriver and a tight grip on that screwdriver. The factory Loctite on mine was not on all the screw threads, so it wasn't too bad once I got it loose.

    Now that I think about it, that screwdriver bit was probably too hard to file. I probably used my Dremel with a sanding disc to take the hex corners off the bit. I can't remember that part too clearly since it's been about a year ago.

    Re: Need help with Beretta Neos trigger job.

    +1 on having a properly fit driver, this is essential on most firearm screws. Also many times a hairdryer simply doesn't direct heat very well. A soldering iron directly to the screw head is a better option. Are you aware of the recall on these pistols?

    Re: Need help with Beretta Neos trigger job.

    Although I am a fan of the saying "A poor workman blames his tools" this is one case where the right tools made it ridiculously easy. I bought a $5.58 Gunsmith screwdriver set yesterday at Academy, filed the corners off the hex bit that had the closest fit, gave the screw one hard turn and it unscrewed easily.
    Yes I am aware of the recall on these pistols. I honestly haven't gotten around to sending it in yet.
