New Supernova problem or normal?
I just bought a new supernova and noticed that when i load shells from the bottom into the magazine tube the lever thing clicks and stays in the upward position. When i chamber a shell it comes back down though. Is this normal?
Im just wondering cause if I only had 1 shell left in the chamber and wanted to load a few more shells through the bottom the lever will end up staying up. Would that be normal?
Im sorry if some of it is hard to understand, this is my very first gun ever and just wanted to make sure nothing is wrong with it.
No apologies - we were all newbies once. It's normal...now get out there and shoot that gun. Congrats on a nice choice. Which Super Nova did you get?

A temp fix is to half pump it with hard force before loading the shell, this will cause the shell elevator to come back down, allowing for normal function.
I am about to do a full demo on fixing this issue for SuperNova owners as it appears to be a common problem.
Hopefully this is not the problem you are having but from your post that is what it sounds like.
If this is the case you need to get the spare parts list for the SuperNova, get familiarized with your Trigger Assembly, and order 2-3 parts(019N, 221N, 021N) for replacement.
If this is the issue this is what is happening in the Trigger Assembly:
221N should stay on the shoulder of 019N but when the door moves upward 221N slips by 019N causing a clicking sound, losing the ability to return the door to it's down (Correct) position.
I hope you don't have this problem, field test it and get back to us.
A little off topic but seems this is the place ask...
Im a proud new owner of my first Benelli (Supernova). For the most part I couldnt be happier with the gun. First time out shooting clays only clay dust hit the ground, first duck hunts this year yielded similar results. The only hang up I've come across is when using 3.5 rounds (getting ready for canadas), and it seems to be primarily associated with Blackcloud ammo. When I load 3.5 rounds, 1 chambered 2 in the mag (waterfowl plug in tube) and cycle them through, the last round in mag is stopped by a small prong near the loader plate. If I give the round a slight push forward, that prong retracts and the round cycles into the chamber like normal. I know Im not using all the right terms for parts here but if anyone knows whats going on I'd appreciate the advice. thanks
Stay safe out there

Okay so I tried it out without any shells in it.
I pumped it once as if chambering a shell then i pushed the elevator up so that it clicked and stayed in the up position(which i guess is normal) like if i were to load shells into the magazine tube. So after that i turned the safety off and pulled the trigger. Then i gave it a full pump and the elevator popped back down. It ends up popping back down after pumping about a 1/2inch.
So i'm guessing everything is ok right?
You shouldn't have to manipulate the safty or trigger to resolve this. I've had three Supernova Tacticals in the last three years and not one did this. The elevator should move freely and return to the lower position at anytime during loading.
By the way the "Up Position" is NOT normal.
Take a look through this thread, and try the actions mentioned, and see if this is also the case for you.
