Let me intro this by stating that, if you're into the "Euro-style" stock of the original Browning Cynergy, the company offers a sweet little 28 gauge Cynergy Feather model that weighs less than 6 pounds and would make a great walking gun for the upland season. Personally, I prefer the more American lines of the Cynergy Classic Field, and selected it for this list. Why the Cynergy and not the veteran Citori? No good reason, except I prefer the low-profile action design of the newer Cynergy for a sub-gauge gun. It comes with a gloss walnut stock, ejectors, ventilated rib and three choke tubes. The 28 gauge is also engraved with quail and grouse artwork, and that's a good indication of the kinds of hunting where this beauty would perform perfectly. With 26-inch barrels, the 28 gauge weighs 6 pounds, 7 ounces. You'll gain about 2 ounces if you opt for 28-inch barrels. MSRP is $2,590.
