  1. I've recently won a Benelli Nova with a 24" barrel at a recent DU banquet. Now I want to use it as my turkey gun. I am looking to mount a red dot on top of it, but after talking with my local gunsmith, I am having reservations. He said that the heavy turkey loads would shred and/or stip the screws if I mounted a weaver style base. Has anyone ever had this problem? I am pretty sure I read an article (I think by Clark) that stated some users also JB weld the base to their receiver. I don't know if I want to take it that far, so I am just looking to see if anyone has ever had their screws strip out on them from the recoil of turkey loads. Thanks, Nate

    POA is off!

    SuperNova, I was thinking about getting a Red dot for it but I used the gun for ducks as well. If I get it drilled and tapped I wonder how that will work out come duck season and I want to take the scope off?

    Anyone have a new Benelli Shotgun with the POI not close? I got mine for Christmas, and it seems as though the POI is low and right by about 8 inches both directions. Any advice? I don't want to have to send it back before Turkey season. Thanks, Nate
  5. Looking to put a Burris Speeddot on my SuperNova. I want to order the Speeddot package from Benelli which includes the camo base. I need to get my gun drilled and tapped, but does anyone know where I can get a Weaver style base that will fit the SuperNova in camo, or where I can order the Benelli package from? It doesn't look like you can order any of their products directly from them. Nate

    Burris SpeedDot

    Anyone tried out one of the Burris Speed Dots? I am interested in giving one a try on my SuperNova this year for turkeys. I have only used standard open sights before. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks Nate
  7. I've just got a few questions for you if ya'll don't mind helping me out. I recieved a Benelli Super Nova 12 ga for Christmas and use it primarily as a waterfowling gun. It has a 28 in barrel. However, I want it to pull double duty for Turkeys this year (first year trying for one). 1. I have been working to get the adjustable, removable sights lined up for a tight, consistant pattern. But I have not been getting the success I hoped. The sights I have put on the gun are Tru Glo Magnum Gobble Dot Sights. The sights have adjustable windage and elevation features. First couple shots, low and right. So after firing a couple more shots, I get the elevation correct. However, after shooting at the 3x3 paper target, I just can't seem to get the windage correct. I moved the rear sight all the way to the left (won't go any farther), and the pattern got closer to the aim point, but never got centered. As far as I can tell, it seems like the center of the pattern is still 4" to the right of the aim point. Is it possible that the gun is not shooting straight from the factory(ie. needs some work on the barrel etc.)? 2. What loads would you recommend for the gun above with a .658 Comp-n- choke? I have tried most of the factory loads including Fed 3" #5s, #6s 3.5" #5s,#6s and Win HV 3" #5s, #6s 3.5" #5s,#6s . I have yet to shoot and of the Hevi13 loads, or the Win XRs but would like to try those. The Nitros are tempting but out of my price range (I am a poor college kid). Additionally, I would have to purchase a different choke for any of the Hevi loads since CnC's manufacturer recommends lead only through their chokes. 3. Will polishing the barrel help? I a couple of friends who have done this and said it worked wonders for them. However, I am reluctant to do this since this gun sees 50+ days on the water during goose/duck season and I don't want to do anything to it to make it more susceptable to corrosion. Thanks for you help, Nate
