Cynergy users
« on: March 10, 2019, 12:50:03 PM »
I have been seriously looking at buying the cynergy ultimate turkey for a while, and think I’m going to close the deal in the next week or so. My question is, from a recoil stand point using a 3in. load, would you say it’s more comparable to shooting a pump? The reason I’m asking is because my 15 yr old nephew is wanting to try shooting a 12ga. this year, but my Benelli is to long. I was thinking that with this gun being more compact that it might fit him better. We always sight in on a lead sled, but he’d have to try it free hand eventually. Thoughts?

Let him shoot field loads when shooting on the he pattern board then slip in magnum loads for the hunt.

The way the recoil pad is designed helps significantly. I honestly think my Cynergy kicks less than my VersaMax with 3 1/2s in each.

In a gun like this, there is no action motion to help spread the recoil impulse out over a longer period of time (like in a gas operated semi-auto).  Most pumps will unlock at firing so that bolt going back will help a little.  Bottom line, the Cynergy should be comparable to a pump and perhaps only a wee bit worse. 

Want to reduce recoil in the Cynergy? I have 3 pounds of TSS glued into the buttstock cavity of mine to reduce recoil and it really helps.  Still, heavy turkey loads are an awful thing to shoot no matter what you do. 

Good luck with your new Cynergy Ultimate Turkey when you get it!  You won't be regret the purchase!

I’m now in my second season with mine. The 3.5 inch loads kick hard but don’t feel any different than my 870,s.
I shot a gobbler last year with a 3.5 inch #5 longbeard from a squatting position. It spun me clear around in my feet facing the opposite direction after the shot, pretty neat.
The recoil is totally manageable. I site in off sticks with no sled without issue.
There He IS !
