    Weaver to Picatinny adaptor question

    Hi,
    It wasn't until I went to mount a Vortex prism sight onto a Beretta NEOS .22 pistol that I realized that I had a problem.

    Since I have had no experience with "Picatinny" rails before, I thought that the sight base that came with my Vortex sight was the standard Weaver style mounting system.

    I assumed that the term Picatinny Rail was a clever term coined by the G.I. Joe Tacticool crowd to describe a Weaver mounting system.

    There is more to it than that I found out.

    Due to the fact that the weaver slots are cut for a round thru bolt/screw and the "Picatinny" ones are square, I'm going to need an adaptor to fit this sight onto my weaver equipped NEOS peestola.

    Upon looking for an adaptor, I am getting lots of hits for standard 3/8" or 11 mm dovetail to Picatinny but not actually what I am looking for.

    Does anyone know where I can get an adaptor that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? Tried Vortex and having no luck with ebay either.

    Maybe J.C.Whitney?

    If the Neos base is removable, get an extra one to file on to make fit.

    Yeah , Too much $ into an already cheap gun. OK gun but not worth putting much money into. Thanks for the advice though!

    Found a place that has them in stock and not too bad of a price. After doing some shooting this afternoon with the gun, decided to put the money into it. Turns out there's some spacing differences and slot width differences too so looks like some file work is in order.
