just got a 20ga nova and got to working it out today on the skeet field when i got a round to feed under a closed bolt [loaded chamber] as i was stuffing the magazine.this happened twice.
like the shell lifter came down prematurely.
playing a little more afterwards i noticed:
--after loading the chamber directly,closing the action,and
loading one in the magazine,
the shell elevator/lifter doesnt come back down until after a round is fired and shucked.
IS THIS NORMAL OPERATION?????? THANKS
