  1. Yeah, I agree that short stroking it is the most likely candidate, it just seems impossible given that you're operating with gross muscle control when you're pulling that forearm back as fast as possible. I guess I'm not sure how short is "short" either.. I'll see what I can do to start eliminating things before I call Benelli.
  2. Hey all, I've been having an issue with my Nova for a while now that I chalked up to user error (not sliding it back all the way, etc), but it happened quite a bit today for two different shooters, so thought I'd follow up here and see what people think. The problem is that the bolt appears to be binding up when feeding a cartridge from the magazine. The problem case keeps happening when shooting clays. I've put well over 1000 rounds of 2 3/4" target load through the gun by manually loading the cartridges into the ejection port over the past couple of years without a single malfunct

  7. I bought a Nova about a year ago for shooting clays, and I've put a couple hundred rounds through it without any problems. But, a couple of weeks ago, the trigger assembly accidentally slipped out of my hand while I was cleaning, and I broke off a small plastic bit that sticks up on the front left of it (see picture, circled in red). [ATTACH=CONFIG]2709[/ATTACH] From what I can tell, this piece of the assembly doesn't actually do anything. It doesn't appear that anything rests on it, slides across it, bumps against it, or has any kind of physical contact. It appears to simply be ther
