    I have a new Browning Cynergy that 4-8 times per hundred will have light primer hits. I'm wanting to know if anyone else has had this happen? I've taken the stock off and cleaned the mechanical part but that didn't help.

    emm2,

    I work at a range and I've seen tons of light hits with many new guns. Are you using Gun Club or other less expensive ammo?

    Shoot well,
    Tom

    They are using reloads and factory winchester AA. Does not happen any more often with the reloads.

    yes. needs a longer pin just like the xt's. you would think browning would learn from the past.

    I have shot my Cynergy combo for 2 years now with about 5k rounds. I have never had a light hit on the primer. But I have been having ejector issues 4 or 5 times through a match it will not throw the shell but only lift it with a strange poping noise. Any thoughts before I remove the stock and clean the trigger asembly?.

    I have 2, a 12 ga field model that works perfectly and this one is a 28 ga that is having problems. I took it out again last night and it worked fine for 50 rounds then acted up 5 times in a row, then it run 75 more flawlessly. I don't know whether to shoot it some more in hopes something will wear in or send it back now.

    I shot gun scrubber into the holes. What is the best way to clean the firing pin holes? I'll try almost anything right now.

    Ifitfliesitdies, Gun Clubs use the Premier primer, the same as the STS.

    I have a Cynergy sporting with 20,000 and no trouble with it. I use all type of ammo and they all fire off. Top or bottom barrel.

    Barry===== the gun clubs shells manufactured after about april 15th of 2009 now use the sts primers. for the past several years they used a steel primer cup with brass coating. they had a bunch of problems with them. the date code on the box atarts with a c,d or e and those ar ethebad ones. some of the c's were ok but most of the d and e's were bad.
