Thanks a bunch. I have been having firing problems and wanted to change the firing pins on my cynergy, but most folks said that is really hard to do, not like a citori. Had me scared to death. Did it the other night following your instructions and pictures, took one hour complete and gun now works great. With out this, I would not have even attempted it. Thanks a ton !!!

There are at least 8 pictures of the receiver fully assembled in the OP. :wink:

Even so, here are the most current pics of that gun:

The gun currently has 12,322 rounds through it and I just shot a 25 straight last Saturday with it. Great gun and I highly recommend it.

Rastoff, terrific documentation! I know that we both own Cynergies and like them. I don't plan to take mine down, but in case I need to, now I can. Is there a reason to disassemble other than to replace a broken part? I wouldn't think cleaning would be a reason unless something catastrophic happened. Good work.

No, I see no reason to take the receiver apart on a regular basis. I'm a geek and like to tinker with stuff so, I did it. The only reason to tear it down like this would be to replace a worn/broken part. There is nothing in the receiver that needs regular maintenance.

Great post!

I have been waiting for someone to say there is a legitimate release made for these. The fit is perfect for me but the lack of a release has been a deal breaker.

I heard there was a mythical fellow that made one in Canada.

I am not sending a gun to Canada.

Have you heard of a release being made for the gun?

Check with this guy.
http://www.pylinskiarms.com/about.html
He travels to many of the shoots and is a Cynergy expert. I had him do a Cynergy trigger job for me, but not a release. If not him, he should know who. He is based in Virginia. He will be at the Cardinal on the 28th of may-june 1st. This is where you shoot I think.

Pylinski does not do releases for Cynergy but I am still looking for someone that has a Cynergy release or knows who does one.

I don't suppose you asked him if he was aware of anybody that did offer them?

I have an idea for a release for the Cynergy, but I still need to get it completed. I have a friend that can help me and we can build a prototype.

The problem with triggers is they can be very touchy.

Rastoff,
Great detail on the means and methods. Any thoughts on how to lighten the trigger pull? I just got a 28ga Euro, the one with the hump on the stock, love that btw, fits me great. Second round today at the clays course was a 41, wooohooooo! But man the trigger pull is heavy. There is a blurb on the net that talks about shortening the firing pin springs and working the sears.
My only experience with firing pin springs is on Citoris, and recently my Sig/Rizzini. These seem to be a very light return on the pin so that it clears the breech. Is the Cynergy spring more substantial?
Cheers,
R*2

No, I don't know how to lighten the trigger pull on the Cynergy. I'm sure it would be like any other trigger and involve adjusting the sear engagement and maybe a spring. It doesn't have anything to do with the firing pin springs though.

Rastoff,
Well the application of a little moly grease on the sears helped a LOT! I've got a trigger pull gauge on the way, and I'll order the E clip, a pair of cotter pins and some backup firing pin springs before
I venture too much further.
Thanks also for your tip on the ejectors, a quick and ez mod. The 16ga Citori is next, I'll also add a pair of the 1911 firing pin return springs with the above.
Thanks for the posts, much appreciated by this tinkerer.
Cheers,
R*2

Outstanding post, Doug. It has everything, details, excellent photos and equally good explanations. Cynergy owners will be in your debt.

Rastoff, you are a gentleman and a scholar.. every time I buy a Browning, I go looking for solutions to problems and you've already been there and done that!
First the heavy ejector springs on my 725 and then my Lightning.. solved!
Now, how to get the dam* firing pins out of a new-to-me Cynergy Euro Field.. solved! I looked at the gun with the stock off last night and thought "There's no way I'm EVER taking that thing apart!"

Thanks again, I think it's safe to say we as a group really appreciate the time and effort you've put into these articles.

I have to say, I'm a little surprised that people are still looking at this five years after I wrote it. I'm glad to hear that folks are still getting value from it.

A good how to article is like a repeating mouse trap, it just keeps on getting 'em! The firing pins had some minor pitting, I wanted to polish the tips and start with a fresh surface.
Job's done, no drama, no collateral damage.

I have a browning cynergy unsingle trap (http://www.browning.com/products/firear ... -comb.html) and i cant figure out what do i need to open my stock so i can pull apart the action. My guess 6mm hex. please help.


The stock is different from the Cynergy sporting bc for this all i need is a flat screwdriver.

Browning usually uses a 5mm Allen head, try that first

Post subject:  Re: Cynergy- Complete Receiver Tear Down w/Pics

The comb hardware may be in the way. The original stock screw from mine was a 6mm hex (see original post).

Also, remember in the original post I said, if you're having trouble with removing the stock, this may not be for you. I'm dead serious about that. Removing the stock is by far the easiest part of this tear down. If you can't get it off, it will only be worse later.

Gun smiths charge extra to reassemble a half finished project. Unless you have more than 50K rounds through your gun, this is overkill. I did mine to make the post and to help guys, but you can see in the pics, it didn't really need to be taken apart.

Again, you can do this, but it's not for the feint at heart. If you have trouble getting it back together, we'll help as much as we can, but that's sometimes tough over the internet. I ask again, are you sure you want to do this?
