View Full Version : I picked up a Browning Cynergy today on trade

April 10, 2009, 07:21 PM
I picked up a 12 gauge over and under cynergy with adjustable comb on trade today and I really have no use for it. Before I sell it I need to get an idea of what it is worth. Can anybody tell me what I can resonably expect to get out of the gun below.

was told it is ported and back bored and has riley ext choke tubes.

Thanks for any help you can give me as I know nothing about shotguns,

Oh geez. That's hardly worth the postage to send it to me. Tell ya what, to get it out of your house, I'll take it for $100. That should cover postage. :rolleyes:

I think it's a Euro Sporting. Assuming it's in like-new shape on the inside, I would list it at about $2750 and see if you get some bites.

It says Cynergy Sporting on the bottom. I don't think it is a euro the guy said it was about 1 year old and those look like they just came out ( i could be wrong). I traded a guy a $1000.00 4 wheeler that I was having trouble selling for it.

Check out the forearm though. The Euro is the only one with that sloping top line. The Classics are more rectangle forearms. The recoil pad is different, too, on the Euro vs the Classic. Either way I'd say you traded with a fool.

looks like last years sporting model. I am having a hard time finding any info on this gun. I saw one on gunbroker but it was not adjustable.

Call Browning and give them the serial number and ask. About the only sure fire way to find out.

The gun looks like its a couple years old. I wouldn't worry too much about when it was made.

Your note said "riley" choke - the term is "Briley" - they are a mfg of chokes, etc in Texas.

But the choke in the top barrel is a "Diana grade Browning choke" - and the one in the bottom barrel is a "Midas grade Browning choke". The down side is they aren't matched. I think the gun came originally with 5 chokes - did you get the other chokes ? What are the chokes marked that are in the gun?

It looks like it has some scratches on the barrel / or at the very least needs to be cleaned up / the wood waxed. You would be better off having the chokes in the gun match - either flush / or Midas / or Diana grade extended. Chokes are about $ 50 each.

As the gun is ( if there are no gouges on the barrel connection when you take it apart ) - and no major scratches - its worth about $ 1,300 - $ 1,500in my area. If you clean it up real well / wax it - maybe $ 1,600 $ 1,800 tops.

The Cynergy line of Brownings does not command the same resale as the Citori line of guns. In a few years that may change... The Cynergy line has gone thru a number of changes - and the specs on the gun from year to year vary a lot -with different dimensions on the drop at comb and drop at heel. It would have come originally with a small box - with 3 triggers in it, a choke tube wrench and a couple of allen wrenches to adjust the comb and to remove the stock. If you have it - it will help you sell it. But my opinion on the prices above are still the same with or without the box. If you had the original cardboard shipping box from Browning - that would help also - but if you don't, don't sweat it. But someone buying the gun as a gift for a kid - even used - would want the box, etc - and it would help you sell it.

But based on what I see - you made a fair deal.

To bad it is jist fer "skeeter" shootin... would make a purdy truck gun!:D

Did you get the original chokes and extra trigger shoes with it? The adjustable comb has been added (nice job though). Looks like it has some honest dings (and dirt). Probably worth about what your trade was worth - maybe $1100 or $1200 but don't know if the added comb adds or subtracts from price?!
