Description: Beretta Neos 22LR Excellent Condition in Box with Documentation - SS Slide Upgrade

The NEOS fills a unique niche within the rimfire handgun category. It isn’t a mouse gun, or a budget gun. The 6-inch barrel model retails right around $375 with upgrades, while the 4.5-inch barrel model will save you about $75. However, due to the longer barrel length and grip design, it is a quality target pistol and prints the groups to prove it.

A quick glance at the NEOS is enough to conjure images of Buck Rogers (or whatever is the modern super equivalent would be for you younger tykes). The futuristic design is for more than looks. The NEOS features a high grip angle and when you consider your stance and form—shoulders rolled forward and extended toward the target—you can easily understand how the NEOS becomes part of that natural extension. The Beretta NEOS is a relative newcomer, and unfortunately a well kept secret. However, performance on the range is quickly changing its status. The NEOS is ready to rock the irons straight out of the box, but is also optic ready. My preference would be to top it with a red dot sight. For speed and accuracy, putting a dot on the spot beats aligning three points any day. However, I like the option of iron sights as a backup or for specific training and competition.

Ergonomics

When introduced, Beretta showed a lot of pride in its efforts to design the NEOS’ ergonomics. Consumers were somewhat lackluster though. That is not an indictment to ergonomics, it merely states a fact and is largely based on a first glance and certainly not a firsthand experience. Once the U22 NEOS is solidly in your hand, you will realize immediately to speed past the looks. If you were a new shooter, you would not know the difference, nor be at a disadvantage.

The U22 NEOS features an ambidextrous safety, which is a positive. Pay attention though. Unlike many external safeties, the NEOS safety is up to fire and down for safe. This may take some getting used to regardless whether you are the shooter or the coach. The design actually allows the shooter to feel the safety with the palm of the hand. This was by design and acts as a tactile reminder. After the first magazine or two, it becomes completely intuitive.

The mag release is another oddity of sorts. The mag release sits where your hand trigger finger would extend if not in the trigger guard. Again, this takes a little getting used to, but keeps the shooters finger away from the magazine when swapping mags. The only downside is for lefties of course. The NEOS striker is exposed when cocked giving both a tactile indication as well as visual. The safety does not act as a decocking device though. The single stage trigger is smooth out of the box and designed for target shooting. Firing was smooth with a stout ejection of the brass. This is great for the shooter and reduces the chance of a stovepipe, but be kind to those on the line next you. Hot brass is no fun for anyone.

After several months of league practice with several different loads, the NEOS is obviously capable of varied diet and readily accepted, loaded and fired a host of different options during testing. An occasional failure was experienced, but nothing that could be blamed on the U22. .22 LR does not have the highest manufacturing standards and the NEOS performed as well as my Ruger Mark II.
