View Full Version : nova vs supernove for deer
09-19-2007, 09:47 PM
i live in the south east and we deer hunt with dogs (it is legal here) and i am looking at a new 3 1/2 inch pump shotgun and it sounds like benelli's are good or so i was told but it sounds like the nova has some glitches but i am smaller statured and the nova sounds like a better deal but again it sounds like it has glitches so what should i do?

Go to your nearest Benelli dealer and compare the two side by side.Handle them and ask questions with an open mind.Deer dogging is fast and furious,and the gun you choose has to be rugged,reliable,and quick pointing,Both guns will fit the bill. We are interested in these"glitches" you speak of,though.Please tell what you've heard,and everyone here will shoot you straight. Good Luck this fall!

well in the nova i have heard the forearm is loose and that sometimes you have to push it forward before you can cycle that shell.

If someone was using some old swolen,corroded head shells,that might be a longshot possibility,but that situation would happen in almost any pump shot gun.The loose forearm is questionable too, as the fit and finish on Benelli's is on par with the best of 'em.Have you thought about a Stoeger p350? It is almost the exact same gun for alot less $$$.Check it out and get back to us on the forum.You can't make a bad choice on these three. Go to the top of the page ang click on the Stoeger logo and look up the P350
