Recently purchased a used 12 gauge nova from a pawn shop. Was cycling rounds through it after I brought it home and noticed the pump does not lock when the gun isn’t cocked. Might sound weird but if I pump it once the action stays in place like it’s supposed to. But if I fire it the pump wants slide back on it’s own. It’s annoying because I have to hold the slide up while chambering the first round otherwise the slide is too far down to insert the first shell into the tube. Any ideas on what it could be? Wondering if I should try to take it back?? Thanks for the input.
Just curious about shotgun storage. I have an SBEII as well as a Stoeger M3500 and was curious if it matters if when you are storing your shotgun you store it with the action open or action closed. I can't seem to find anything on this on the web. Just thinking about spring tension compressed or relaxed. Any thoughts?
Hi, I have had my Nova Pump, which is my first gun from Benelli, for only about 10 days. We shot about 20 rounds through it the other day and I notice that after we fired one round and then tried to load a second cartridge sometimes it would take two or three times before it would bring a cartridge into the chamber. And then today while out hunting, I noticed that it would not load cartridges at all. We would load two and then put a third in the chamber and when we would pump / cycle the action it would eject the one cartridge and not load a second one. When I turned the gun over to look, I would push on the cartridge and it felt like it's getting hung up on something. When I moved the cartridge with my finger you can feel it drop off an edge and move forward a little bit. When you pump it, this cartridge usually fall out of the bottom of the gun. Bottom line, it reacts different ways but 95% of the time it will not load a second cartridge into the chamber on it's own. I have tried our 3 inch Hunting loads and our 2 3/4 target loads and it's exactly the same. I also took the gun to my neighbor who is a gun dealer and he agrees something is wrong.
