I am having an issue with my Nova feeding the next round. When I have a round in the magazine and go to cycle that round into the chamber, the shell elevator does not go all the way down and blocks the round from sliding back onto the elevator so it can be cycled into the chamber. Sometimes I can work the elevator while pumping and sometimes while I do that the round falls out. What is weird, is it seems that when I dry fire the gun and try to cycle a round, everything seems to work fine. I have read a lot about the SuperNova having this issue and I have also read that this is a safety feature with the Nova Pump. Ideas? Help?
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.
