I have shot both on sporting clays ranges, but own neither one.

Both seem to be well put together guns. I thought that recoil on the Red Label was a bit tough, but that was about the only negative that I could find with it.

I liked everything about the Cynergy, except the way that it fit me, which is very important when buying a shotgun.

I would go to the gun store and hold/point both of them, and then pick whichever one you feel fits the best. I do not think you can go wrong with either one as far as quality and reliability go.

Good luck!

Awesome!!! Got any pictures?

Duck hunting is one of my favorite types of hunting, but alas, I hardly ever get to do it anymore.

Glad the gun is working out well for you!
