When I was looking for a gun I shot many different guns at the Grand. I shot a Cynergy, XT, SKB, and a Beretta 682. I shot all the guns with both barrels. To me it was an easy choice. I picked the Beretta because it was easy to swing, had a better trigger, and was a nicer gun. The Beretta is only about $300 more and has better resale value.
I just bought the classic cynergy trap combo and I absolutely love how it fits, swings and shoots. I shot my friends 682 gold E and I prefer the cynergy and my friend shot mine and he agreed that he likes the cynergy better. He thinks the wood is better and the cynergy is better built. He said he would have bought the cynergy but they do not or did not make a left hand gun when he bought the gold E. I have not one complaint, regret or second thoughts about my cynergy combo especially with the price I paid for it. I have shot quite a few shells through it already with not one trigger or firing pin problem. Just my opinion. If you decide to go with the Cynergy try Erik at Cove Creek Outfitters in PA, their prices can not be beat abd they take care of return customers. One other thing my friend had the forearm crack two months after he bought it and got NO help from Joel Etchen where he bought it and Beretta was HORRIBLE with customer service and turn around time on fixing the gun. Beretta had the gun all of last summer (over three months) with nothing but promises and lies.
