    Dear Mike

    I guess I will find out how good this gun is on our Bunker field in North Tn.

    I talked Kurt down a little on the gun and it is headed my way. It is a type III.

    Now, if it needs it, who has a good price on the mainspring and installation kit, and what about one piece firing pins?

    I performed warranty service and repair on these guns when they were imported by Ithaca and Winchester. I know, I'm older than dirt. I can't remember much about them, except replacing the mainsprings.

    Dear Sportshot,

    The Cynergy is a tremendous firearm, and is well suited for clay target chores.

    However, in the last year, I have spent many hours in the Gym, have basically doubled my strength and dropped my body fat down to 12%. I train warriors half my age, and I feel I must show them the techniques I train, from Confrontational Management (COP ON-apply directly to suspect) to a running Gunfight (self explanatory)! Most 60+ year old Instructors cannot do this. I am dedicated to my students.

    What this means is most tournament guns feel like small bore field guns to me. Even my 32" XT feels light and whippy.

    We now have a Bunker field in North Tn, and I want to have a gun truly made for the task. I shoot my XT fairly well, and have shot in the high 90's with it. I do tend to shoot over the wormburner. As good as it is, the XT IS a trap gun. On the ATA field, the XT and XT UnSingle Combo's are about as good as it gets. After shooting the Unsingle Combo, I bought one, and wound up selling my K-80 Combo. I simply shoot it better. It is heavier than the XT I use for ATA backup and Bunker. If fatigued or dehydrated, it feels like a floor joist. One must remember, it was designed from the ground up as an ATA gun.

    I am going to try the Mirage out for a season, and will make up my mind. The ease of finding different stocks and extra barrels was a part of the decision to buy it. Also, the thing has monster chokes, which I prefer.

    Now I need a source on parts, including the obligatory spring kit, and firing pins.

    Are the factory two piece pins the way to go, or should I get the one piece units? I serviced these guns thirty + years ago, but cannot remember much about them, except that at the warranty shop I ran, the Brownings gave less trouble than ANY brand we serviced! I have always liked the Browning. If the Mirage does not float my boat, I am looking at a XS Special with 32" barrels.

    I will give this gun a six month shakedown cruise.

    I know I can bug Giacomo with questions, but I figure there is more experience on this site and folks willing to help out a fellow shooter.

    Yep, I saw that too, but I got a good price on it, and if it does not pan out, it can go back. If it does what I want, I'll keep it.

    Do you have a source for parts, or should I just go through Giacomo?

    Just a quick update on Kurt at Great Lakes Sporting Arms.

    I picked up the Mirage today. It is in better shape than he described. The metal is virtually 100%, with all matching parts. The breech face looks like new, the top lever is almost to the wood, and all in all, I am VERY satisfied with the gun. The bores are mirror smooth and flawless. I tried, but could not find anything wrong with it.

    I will recommend Kurt and Great Lakes to anyone. He is a new kid on the block and has definitely made a good impression on me! (thumbs up icon)

    No doubt.

    I took her to the Club, and ran 100 straight right out of the box on the 16, shot a 71/75 (23-24-24) on Bunker, shot a 23 off the 27, and had a great time with the gun. It really boils birds. Once I get used to it, I might be able to shoot it. LOL
