Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

Have any of you guys shot or owned both of these guns?I was thinking about a new O/U and would love to stay with the American made Ruger unless there was a "big" difference!Thanks!

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

Check and see what O/U most skeet and Sporting Clays shooters use That should answer your question.

Re: Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

I own a Ruger Red Label and a Browning 525 Citori. Never shot a Cynergy. I like both guns, the Ruger has a lower profile receiver than the Citori, however the Cynergy has a pretty low profile.
The Ruger fits me well, as does the Browning. I would definitely suggest handling and or shooting both of them you are considering if possible, see which fits you the best. In shotguns fit is everything, as your eye is the rear sight.
I will say Rugers cutomer service is legendary, Brownings leaves something to be desired.
Good luck with whichever you choose.

Shoulder them, for me the Cynergy fit the best. I had no idea a shotgun could fit like that. Awesome good fit!

Re: Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

Fit especially, and feel is most important. If it fits you'll shoot better. On quality, nothing against the Ruger, but of the 2 I'd pick the Browning hands down. To me the Ruger felt like a pipe attached to a 2X4. My preference in an O/U is Beretta, again because they fit me better.

Same here. Beretta and Browning make a good O/U and I would choose them over a Ruger anyday.

Re: Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

I now own two Browning Cynergys one 20 GA and one 12 Ga. Both are Cynergy Euro Sporting 30 in. I use to shoot a Ruger Red label. Last I knew Red Labels were around $1000.00 and Cynergy $1700.00. Just got back from the Iron Man shoot and took the 12 GA. and got a 120/150.

Re: Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

I have a Red Label in 20, my bro-in-law has a cynergy in 20. I like my Red Label better but the cynergy is nice too. The Red Label just fits me better. Ruger also has a life time warranty where as the browning does not.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

A Browning or Beretta O/U would be my preference in a 20 ga. The Red Label is the only shotgun I ever bought and promptly sold within a year. Mine was a lifeless clunker. The 20's may be trimmer, but my 12 was uninspiring.

Re: Ruger Red Label vs. Browning Cynergy?

for you guys talking about fit, you eill hate me for this, but the best fitting guns I have ever had have been right-out-of-the-box Remingtons, from 870's, 1100's, and top dollar competition 3200's.

Oh, how I wish they would bring back the quality 3200!!! Constantly checking the internet for a good 4-barrel set!!
