Browning introduced its Cynergy line of shotguns to enthusiasts in 2004 and brought with it an all-new approach to a company line that has a reputation for being some of the finest over-under models available now—and throughout history. These shotguns use a reverse striker ignition system instead of hammers, which gives the trigger a more crisp feel and with less overtravel when compared to competitors.

Because inertia is no longer required for the hammers to set, the possibility that the second barrel will fail to fire is eliminated. Coupled with the company’s Triple Trigger System, which allows for adjustment of length of pull and even swap trigger shoes, it creates one of the most reliable over-under shotguns on the market today.

They also come with an Inflex Technology recoil pad and feature the Monolock Hinge, for a lower profile and 300 percent more surface area that ensures smooth and reliable operation through years of service. The gun’s Impact Ejectors are aided by a secondary striker spring for positive ejection of fired hulls.

There are seven different models of the Cynergy in Browning’s current line today and each are made in 12-gauge versions. Two are also offered in 20-gauge with 3-inch chambers.

Among the 12-gauges, the Cynergy Ultimate Turkey wears Mossy Oak Break-Up Country camo, comes with 24- or 26-inch barrels and chamber 3 1/2-inch shotshells. It has a short Picatinny rail for mounting optics, but ships with a Marble Arms Bullseye rear sight and fiber-optic up front. Like all Cynergys, it uses the Invector-Plus choke tube system. MSRP is $2,389.99.

There’s also a Cynergy CX Composite with a synthetic stock. An ivory front sight matches perfectly with rib’s mid bead. Whether you go with the 28-, 30- or 32- version, MSRP is 1,759.99.

All four other models feature walnut stocks and the fine finish we’ve come to expect from the company. The CX retails for $1,829.99, the CX with Adjustable Comb runs from $2,189.99 to $2,259.99 and the Field version will set you back $1,979.99 to $2039.99 depending on your choice of barrel length.

A laminated stock sets the top-of-the-line Classic Trap Unsingle Combo apart from the others currently being produced in this line. It comes in at $4,359.99.

As for 2-0-gauge, it’s available in the Field and Micro Midas. Both come with walnut stocks and barrel lengths vary from 24 to 28 inches. MSRPs, respectively, are $1,979.99 to 2,039.99.
