    What do people think of the Beretta U22 Neos? Share some experiences or informed opinions about the accuracy, reliability, maintenance, etc.


    Here is a picture of the handgun.

    it's not bad, but feels kinda like a toy. I like my smith and wesson 22A better and they are about the same price.

    Can't really go wrong with either

    My father-in-law has one it is a nice shooter, it was a little un-comfortable in my big hands, but shoots straight and without jam with the 3 different ammos I fed it. I like the Browning Buckmark better, I tyhink the neos is a little ulgy.

    I might be tempted to buy one myself in about a year. I like Berettas new stuff because its so easy to disassemble and clean. How are the sights on one?

    The sights are pretty good, but the Neos really shines when you mount a Red Dot optic on it. That and the fact CDNN has spare mags for $10 each.

    The only logic I question about the Neos is the carbine mounting kit. Honestly who turns a .22 handgun into a carbine? Then again I guess its kind of cool.

    I love mine! Trouble free for thousands of rounds now and it feeds any cheapo bulk pack stuff I can find.

    I have one and love it. It feeds everything except Federal Target Grade Performance 40gr solid. Everything else feeds perfectly. It accurate and reliable and a pleasure to shoot. BTW: CDNN has (or had) the mags for $10ea.

    I've had mine about a year and I really like it. 6" Inox Dlx model. No problems, as accurate as I can be, doesn't like the bulk "Golden Bullets" or SSS. Does really well with Lapua.

    Nothing like an 87 Target.

    Could never even pick it up, because such total hideousness looks like it must harbor the plague.

    The internal workings of the Neos are patterned after the old High Standard Duramatic design.

    Perfect the one I liked was the 6 inch dlx. It sounds like another excellent gun by Beretta. Anyone try turning it into a carbine?

    Neos

    The carbine conversion units seem to be on permanent hold and it is the cause of some griping amongst owners.

    I like the Neos but it did require some getting used to. I have Ruger MK II
    and SW 22 A.

    Take down and cleaning is not a particular problem. The iron sights leave
    something to be desired. Red dot scopes work well; however.
    The magazines are quite easy to load and clean.
