  1. Spend 30min getting a post together and then this site dumps me and it is gone. Turned out great......will be posting on this site in the future if anyone wants to see how it turned out http://www.oodmag.com/community/showthread.php?83229-Reducing-LOP-on-Benelly-SuperNova-SteadyGrip
  2. I have put up with it long enough.....I need to shorten my LOP of my Super Nova or sell it and get into something easier to customize. I last posted here in '09 and I am just wondering if anyone has since come up with any ideas on how to drop the LOP of this gun about 1". I cannot even find the 1/2" recoil pads anywhere and I am stuck with the brick of a recoil pad it came with......is there any aftermarket pads that can get me a 1/4 - 1/2" recoil pad? I have been to Italy.......and the guys I saw were not dragging their knuckles on the ground as they walked so how the **** do this fit into this gun? I am 5'10" 190lbs and I am just a tad small for it and it is driving me crazy........any ideas other then the obvious?
  3. Nothing I see...............
  4. I am curious if there is any solution to the brick that Benelli put on the end of their Super Nova Steady Grip shotguns. It amazes me that they went with this new design without offering a recoil reducing pad for aftermarket. I'm about to sell mine and jump the fence and grab an 870....at least I can get aftermarket options! Going up for sale soon!
  5. I am curious if there is an aftermarket recoil pad made for the Super Nova Steady Grip? I would like to reduce my LOP on my turkey gun and get a narrower recoil pad than what it came with from the factory. Any ideas?
  6. I shot this hen during our fall hunt at 44yds and she went over like a bag of cement......3" #6 HEVI 13 (2oz loads).
  7. But here is my issue - historically the US has much lower pricing on guns than up here in Canada. Typically Canada is approx 20-30% more expensive. Now that the Cdn currancy is no longer at par with the green back one would think that this price gap would widen but it is not. Why would Benelli sell the same gun for $399 in the US and $399 in Canada.......if one used the exchange from today the $399Cdn gun should only cost $320US.....not $399. 399Apr 60.8039320.7654 ....and again I still do not get why they would price the Stoeger the same as the Benelli Just my $0.02 worth.
  8. Just caught the latest Canadian Bass Pro Flyer and I am stumped......can anyone tell me why they would sell the Stoeger P-350 Steady Grip for $399.94 and the Benelli Super Nova Steady Grip for the same price - $399.94???
  9. I see that Benelli makes a steady grip for SBII and the Nova/Super Nova. What about a standard stock for my Super Nova Steady Grip? It would be nice to have the option of changing stocks. Thx. John
  10. Buddy I just finished that same project - LOL!! I ordered the base and rings from a store in the US. When they came in they are indeed too long for the gun - the steady grip has a different molding than the standard Super Nova. This molding has a lip near the end that causes the stock end of the base to sit a hair higher. What I did was take my base and cut off the last 1/4" off it so it cleared that lip. This modification did not affect my 2 mounting holes or where I positioned the rings on the base. I just bought some beige model paint and painted the cut end of the mount so you could not tell. All in all worked out amazing.
  11. I am using an Indian Creek .665 and a Super Nova Steady Grip and my patters were terrible with the Hevi 13 (3" #6). My best results were with Xtended Range 3" #6. Other good performers in my gun was: Winchester HV 3" #5 Winchester Double X 3" #6 Kent Diamond 3" #6 I did found that the trigger job made a HUGE difference. I found the factory trigger pretty bad.
  12. Definitely....and I love it. Here are some images of my dear Nelli
  13. That is halarious...... I'm looking forward to heading down to Michigan in a couple of weeks and try my luck down there. John
  14. Well I knocked down a nice bird on the first day of the Ontario opener with my new Benelli Super Nova - I retired my 1300 last season. I tell you there is no looking back - this gun rocks!!
  15. tDaniel, Yes, I am the same way with the Benelli - saw it and on a whim bought it and dressed it up for turkey - Indian Creek choke and Burris 1.75-4 scope. It patterns quite nice with Winchester Xtended (3" #6) but the brown Hevi13 (3" #5's) are a dog throught it:confused:
