Default Has anybody seen.....

the new Browning Cynergy over/under shotguns?? That trigger guard sure reminds me of the new Benelli SBE II, and the recoil pad looks a lot like the recoil pad on the Benelli R-1 semi-auto rifle!

Here's the info on it from Browning.

The heart of a race car, the looks of a supermodel, the soul of a Browning . . . That’s what we had in mind when our engineers started on the Cynergy™ project. We wanted to build an over and under shotgun with a low profile receiver that was so different, it would not just be an evolution, but a revolutionary new firearm that would re-write the book on what a shotgun should be — just as John M. Browning did with the famed Superposed. Since the Superposed, Browning has been synonymous with innovative and reliable over and under shotguns and we have solidified our place as the pre-eminent over and under shotgun company. Like its predecessors, the Superposed and Citori, the Cynergy is more than just another shotgun, it is lower and sleeker, faster functioning and handling, but mostly, it is uniquely Browning, it is The Best There Is™.
Monolock HingeThe ingenious MonoLock Hinge system is the reason behind Cynergy’s low profile receiver — and its uncanny strength. The MonoLock Hinge represents the integration of the traditional mono-block and the hinge. The hinge has significantly more surface area to pivot on, resulting in less wear over time. Rectangular locking pins provide additional strength and feature a unique, Wear-In Relief feature that allows wear without hindering lock-up.

The new MonoLock Hinge gives the Cynergy the lowest profile receiver of any 12 gauge over and under shotgun. This innovative design places the barrels in correct alignment with the shooter, making the shotgun a natural, fluid extension of the body. Improved ergonomics enhance shouldering and hand/eye coordination while reducing felt recoil and muzzle climb.

Inflex Recoil Pad Defying recoil pad tradition, the Browning Inflex Recoil Pad system succeeds in styling, versatility and recoil absorption. Inflex is an integrated part of the shotgun, rather than an afterthought. The deep Inflex pad provides long travel recoil reduction for a massive 25% decrease in felt recoil. Three pad lengths are available in 1/2" increments to provide an impressive length of pull adjustment to fit a wide variety of shooters. A 1/4" spacer is also included for further customization.

Mechanical Trigger Cynergy shotguns feature the Reverse Striker — a newly designed, striker-based, mechanical trigger system. The mechanical trigger offers the benefits of crisper feel, lighter pull, shorter locktime and less overtravel. This innovative, incredibly fast system outperforms the traditional hammer trigger systems found in most over and under shotguns. Cynergy Sporting shotguns also come equipped with the Triple Trigger™ System, which allows the shooter to adjust the length of pull and switch between a wide checkered, a narrow smooth and a wide smooth canted trigger shoe.

Adjustable Comb Composite Sporting and Composite Field models include an integrated, adjustable comb system to allow the gun to be easily customized to the individual shooter. Drop at comb adjustments are made in 1/8" increments. For customization of cast on/cast off, accessory combs can be purchased.

Back-Bored Barrels All Cynergy shotguns feature lightweight, back-bored barrels. These barrels have a bore diameter increased to its maximum specification. This reduces the friction of the shot charge against the barrel wall, resulting in increased shot velocity. Additionally, because there is less constriction or pressure from the forcing cones on a shot charge, there are fewer deformed pellets which leads to more uniform patterns than with standard barrels. Ported barrels are featured on Cynergy Sporting models. Barrel porting works in conjunction with the new low profile receiver to further reduce felt recoil and muzzle jump. These reductions serve to increase shooting comfort and improve follow-up shot speed and accuracy.

Impact Ejectors New Browning Impact Ejectors ensure solid ejection of empty shells from the chamber. The ejector is aided by the impact of a second striker spring, which gives more positive ejection than the push imparted on competitors’ ejectors. The automatic ejectors positively eject fired shells when the breech is opened. Unfired shells are elevated for easy removal.

Safety Manual thumb safety, combined with barrel selector mechanism.

Chrome Chambers Cynergy shotguns feature chrome-plated chambers for corrosion resistance.

Choke Tubes All Cynergy shotguns include the interchangeable Invector-Plus™ Choke Tube System. Choke selection can be customized by the gun’s intended purpose (field, sporting, etc.).

Safety Lock All Browning firearms are shipped with a free trigger lock, cable lock, padlock or chamber lock depending on model, to assist in the safe storage of firearms.

The Cynergy and winchesters Energy are kind of goddy. But thats my opinion. I still love the look of the 525 field. Also goddy. How can somthing that looks so wrong, yet feel so right? Will have to try one.

I know that F.N. owns Browning and Beretta. But if they also own Benelli, that may be why they look so close. Does anyone know if Benelli is now owned by F.N.?

Beretta owns Benelli, unless something has changed very recently.
