Electrical resistivity of the selected Heusler off-stoichiometric (NiCo)₂Mn(GaIn) alloys was studied in a wide range of temperature and magnetic field. A step-like change of resistivity (Δρ ≈24 μΩcm) was detected in the off-stoichiometric Ni_{1.85}Mn_{1.21}Ga_{0.94} alloy at temperature of martensitic structural transition. This Δρ is much more significant than one in the stoichiometric Ni₂MnGa alloy. In the case of the off-stoichiometric (NiCo)₂Mn(GaIn) alloys, an enormous change of resistivity, Δρ ≈ 200 μΩcm, accompanies the structural transition. Simultaneously, the maximum of the spin disordered resistivity ρ_{sd}(T) of austenite phase of the alloys is slightly dependent on composition of the alloy and vary from ≈30 μΩcm up to ≈45 μΩcm, in good agreement with theoretical calculations. Due to high sensitivity of the structural transition temperature of the alloys to magnetic field, the very pronounced magnetoresistance effects have been observed in the studied alloys.
