I was cleaning my cynergy sporting (my first O/U) today and while looking at my snap caps I noticed a small mark on the edge of the one from the top barrel. I looked at some of my empty hulls and they had the same marks. Looking at the top firing pin it is every so slightly warn. Should I be worried about this and send the gun in for warranty work? Thanks

They appear to look the same as mine from my Cynergy Sporting

I don't know about the Cynergy, but on my Browning 425 Ultra dirt/junk builds up in the fireing pins. The fireing pins are free floating, with the bottom pin having a weak spring to push the pin back into the reciever on opening so it is retracted when closing. (if pin was sticking out, the shell rim could hit it and bend/break off tip). The top one doesent matter as there is no downward shearing action. What I do now after having to replace the pins is periodicly remove the stock, spray LPS or Rem-Oil in the fireing pin hole from the breeh face and into the back end. Work the pin back and forth to wash/work out any dirt/junk that accimulates there. You can see the dirt coming out as you work it back and forth. When you are satisfied, set the reciever up so the LPS/Rem-Oil can drain. NO FURTHER LUBRICATION OF TH PINS IS REQUIRED. Just thought this might help with your problem.

I feel stupid now. :oops: I see what your talking
about now and no my gun doesn't make them
marks. I was focused on the primer strikes for
some reason. :? What was I thinking?
Anyway yeah, I'd look for crud build up around
the firing pin.

Thanks, I'll try cleaning the pins real good. I believe the pin is dragging on opening rather than on closing. The pins retract when the action is being closed. Are they supposed to retract when the action is opened? Thanks again.

According to the parts breakdown for the Cynergy, both firing pins have return springs around them. I'm wondering if the top one is broken or gummed up on you? My nephew also had it happen on his Cynergy, and Browning claimed they never heard of it doing that.

It is hard to see Dirt/junk build up around the pins. It accumulates in side where the pin slides in and out. So spray/inject the CLP/Rem-Oil and work it back and forth. If you have a pin punch of the right size, you can remove the retaining pin, leave the punch in the hole, then keeping a finger on the pin remove the punch and let the pin back out slowley so the spting won't go flying. You can then get a pipe cleaner/cotton swab in to really clean it out.
NOTE: IF YOU PLAN ON REMOVING THE PINS, LOOK AT THEM CARFULLY ON BOTH ENDS. ONE END WILL APPEAR TO BE SLIGHTLY LARGER THAT THE OTHER. SO PUSH IT OUT FROM THE SMALLER SIDE. NOTE HOW THE LARGER END OF PIN IS KNURLED, THAT HOLDS THE PIN IN PLACE. BE SURE YOU REINSTALL THE SAME WAY IT CAME OUT.
But if you remove the stock and spray with CLP perioditcly you won't have to remove the pins.
