Beretta® U22 Neos Pistol
I had recommended the Neos to my customers based on an industry review and the "feel" of the gun. An unusually wide range of hand types/sizes like the Neos. I bought one myself, took it out to sight it in, and after about 15 rounds, the pin under the rear sight began working its way out. I promptly sent it back to Beretta, and so far (30-50) rounds it is holding. I also took it to a smith for trigger work. The trigger on my Neos was so very bad that it made the words "target pistol" a joke. God-awful. After the trigger work it was a reasonably good trigger ($48). After all the above, the Neos seems to be a good target pistol and I'll enjoy shooting it in my matches. Even with the money for the trigger job, it is a very reasonably priced weapon. Now when I sell it, I can tell my customers about the necessary, very necessary, trigger job, and where they can get it.

Got Neos two months ago. Great gun. My wife ,brother and I love it. It is accurate with both the regular sights and a red dot. No problem putting red dot on but I did have to remind people to use the red dot not the front sight . It is easy to clean just one step (turn a wheel) .

wish I did not
After shooting 3 or 4 times the rear adjustable sight came loose. Sent it back to Beretta. They change the screw and sent it back to me. It still had the same problem. This pistol was for my wife, so it did not work out for her. I glued the sight to one position.

Oh, where were you 50 years ago
What beautiful weapon. I have both 4.5 barrel and the 6.0 inch barrel. Took 90 seconds to change, easy enough, just turn a wheel. Firearm eats everything even some ammo older than my kids. Bought a spare stock in blue accent, now going to get the red, silver and gray. But the thing that sold me was the sights stay with the barrel. Oh just grab a brick (500 for you city people)rounds of 22s, some fishing line and some targets, stapler also, go deep in the woods, drop a line in the creek and hang some targets and have a fish fry and shooting contest to see who will do the skinning and cooking. Oh go ahead and get one, you will love it Get one for the lady and have a ball. Get two bricks of 22s, stay the night, and have bbq, Well got to go hear the water lapping!
