Beretta U22 Neos .22 LR 4.5 inch

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We poked fun at the sneering look of the top metal, but this was actually, overall, a decent and clever gun design, though with some issues. We didn’t like the excess slant to the grip, but the raised-dot “checkering” worked well. This would be an easy gun to scope, but its lack of accuracy would make that not a good idea, we thought.

A clever system lets you take the Neos down to these assemblies without any tools. Workmanship was excellent everywhere we looked. it came with two 10-shot magazines that were easy to load.
The rear sight had a white outline, but there was no dot on the front blade. The fully adjustable rear sight was made mostly of steel. The arrow points to the rear of the striker, indicating the gun is cocked. There’s a red dot at the center of the striker. Always assume there’s a round in the chamber.
