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.
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?
