The Beretta U22 Neos is a semiautomatic, single-action pistol designed and manufactured by the Italian firearms company Beretta, chambered for the .22 Long Rifle.
The Beretta U22 Neos was launched in 2002, debuting in a cover story in the American Rifleman magazine. It was designed for first-time pistol shooters, but could also be used for mainstream shooting training and even for experienced users. It possesses a modular, futuristic design, which was the result of "a collaboration between Beretta engineers and Giugiaro Design stylists". This makes it easy to modify with many options and accessories. A notable aspect in its design is the rail on top of the barrel, which telescopes over to the rear bolt, and which is capable of holding adjustable sights and a scope mount.
