    I'm looking into buying one of these, i dont like the look of the browning 22s. Are these u22 neos worth 200-300 dollars?

    $200 - yes. $300 - no.

    They seem to run about $229-$259, which is reasonable for this pistol.

    Bought an INOX U22 NEO for 284 before taxes last month. I am really happy with it. Take it home clean it up, shoot. I am not a good shot with pistols so I bought it for affordable practice. I'm drilling the 10 ring at 10 yards all day long. It shoots remmington gold bullets and federal bulk well(about 3 or 4 out of 500 ftf) and cheaply. Seems to like the CCI blazers best. Seems to dislike minimags with 1 or 2 out of 100 FTE. About 3000 rounds thru pistol so far.

    You bet, I have 2 of them, most places are selling them in the 250 range. My local gander mt. had 2 at 239.

    I got mine (with 6" barrel, which I recommend) at Bud's Gun Shop for something like $240.

    Mine's similar with an INOX barrel-slide and a Tasco red dot.

    I bought a 6in. NEOS a few years back and then a 4.5in for my son last year. So far, they have been great little guns for the steel plate shoots and plinking (although I do wish they could make a slightly larger accessory grip as I can't quite get used to the safety location).

    I put that pesky little switch to "fire" position when I bought my U22 and haven't touched it ever since. :dunno:

    I just bought one of these, and I think it is my new favorite gun. I really like the way it fits my hand, and I've had zero failures out of about 200 rounds of federal bulk ammo. And it's extremely easy to break down for cleaning.

    I bought one of these a few months ago I always shoot CCi stingers have shot nearly a thousand and have no FTF yet.I put a cheap red dot scope on it and it is quite accurate I gave 250 OTD for it. My wife loves it a little more tame than my 40 Cal.

    Whenever I see a U22 I always think of Star Trek, "Phasers on stun".

    :supergrin:I thought my S&W 22A's were ugly till I saw the Beretta & Walther. :rofl:

    This is beauty, S&W 2206 circa 1990 to 1997 came NIB with 2.5 lb trigger, just enough take up to prevent accidental firing and no over travel.

    It shoots everything I have put through it and that's about 7 brands and all types.
    Sure hope my new S&W 41 that's coming is as good, but....
