  1. I just received my SuperNova from being serviced for a misfiring issue where the firing pin strikes the primer too softly or not at all. I was not able to fire the shotgun since the middle of goose season. The notes from 5-2-16 said the gun was inspected and and firing properly and Benelli could not duplicate the issue. I doubt they tested my gun in the freezer so I was not surprised when I shot the gun yesterday (a 65 degree spring day in Kansas) but I have lost all trust using it in the field during the winter duck/goose season. I know there remains an issue with my gun since there was no repair made. Early in the season my gun was firing fine however, In the middle of a goose hunt I started having misfires and the gun has not fired during a hunt since. I cleaned the entire gun and inspected the firing pin and everything looked fine so I took it out for another hunt and same issue, the gun would not fire. It may be in issue where the SuperNova just can't handle the cold but I bought a Benelli over other brands because I believed it was the best gun for all conditions. I had to watch my 3 hunting buddies blasting geese as I sat there praying that the gun wouldn't misfire but all I was hearing was click after click. The other guns (a couple different brands and a SBE) where having no issues firing. This was only my second year using this gun that I bought brand new. I have lost all trust in my SuperNova and will not use the gun in the field anymore. I have read people having the same issue so I feel Benelli has to know about this problem with the SuperNova. I hope my story is helpful for people looking for a waterfowl gun, the SuperNova will simply not fire in the late season in my experiences.
  2. I've got a Supernova on the way! I called choke-tubes.com and they told me that 3inch hevishot 2oz. #6's will out pattern a 3.5" with 2 1/4 #6's. They also said the 3inchers pattern more consisteltny over the ten shots they test their chokes with. They recommended I get a .650 choke. Anyone agree? Disagree?
  3. So i just purchased my new Benelli SuperNova. It seems to hang up a bit unless i muscle the shotgun a little bit. Now i know you can't just move the pump with one finger i know you have to put a little bit of force into it but i called benelli they told me to strip it clean and re lube it. I did that and it does feels much better. They also said there is a break in period as it is a BRAND new firearm. Maybe i'm just being anal and paranoid but i just don't want any issues. It has loosened up the more i play with it but it just had me a little worried. Am i just being a little too paranoid and worrisome or is it an issue worth looking into? And secondly... Seeing as my supernova is my very first shotgun, i'm a little lost with how all these kinds of shells work. I know birdshot is for birds and buck shot is for buck but idk what size shell to shoot and what i should shoot for clay pigeon shooting and so on. What's the point of bigger shells over the smaller shells, I know i will stick with Federal Ammo mainly because i shoot that in my Glock and Bushmaster XM-15 with no issues. I like Fiocchi ammo as well. It's an Italian gun so i might as well feed it Italian food right? Sorry for being so un educated but it's just a bit overwhelming to me at the moment. I just got into firearms 2 years ago so i'm slowly learning each kind and shooting them. My next purchase is a Bolt Action Savage 110 Tactical. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hey guys, I have picked up a supernova tactical, and I would like to modify it to even better suit home defense. What items would you guys consider, and if you could, include a link to it.
  5. Hey guys, I'm new to this forum, and I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I have a pistol grip stock for the supernova that I would like to trade for the comfortech stock. Comes with sling.
  6. Hello everyone. I'm new here. Not new to shotgunning (35 years exp.) but new to Benelli. I have a problem. A crooked rear ghost ring. Not the mount, but rather the ring itself. Right side of ring sets higher than the left. (as you face it during normal aiming) It's under spring tension as I can push it downward.. What you guys think? It is a brand new weapon. Faulty install or faulty manufacturing? I shot out a email to Benelli C.S. (pun) I figure there are some very savy shooters on here though that may have seen or heard of this. Any & all remarks are welcome. 18.5 Tactical w pistol grip, Ghost ring sights. Thank you.
  7. I use an 870 for work, but bought this for play. Benelli Supernova Cerakote FDE with co-witnessed SpeedBead/FastFireIII
  8. Hello all, I am a left handed shooter with a right handed Supernova. Ive always shot a right handed shotgun so no complaints there, however I recently heard about being able to reverse the safety on a right handed gun to accomodate a lefty. It would be nice on those colder mornings when the finger tips get a little numb. Can anyone confirm/deny it and also does anyone know if Benelli has the directions posted online anywhere? Thank in advance.

  11. Can anyone source/identify the threaded mounting stub for this breacher? I have the collapsible stock set, but I don't want to hack the receiver extension. I don't own this picture, but sweet looking h2o.
  12. Hi. I'm looking into options for a first shotgun that will be used for home defense. I'm really leaning to the SuperNova tactical with pistol. Is it possible to get both the pistol grip AND the ComforTech stock on the same gun? I ask because I've held -- and prefer -- the pistol grip, but my wife will be using this as well, and I'm looking at options that can help reduce the impact on her shoulder. (BTW, I was steered to Benelli by some folks I know at the local police dept, who use them and rave about the product quality -- the M2 and M3 are their top choices, but that's a bit out of my price range for how much use it will get). Thanks for any input!
  13. Hi, my name is Sam. I just picked up a brand new Benelli Supernova tactical with rifle sights.I got it home, read the manual and before I even assembling the barrel I notice this on the breach side of the barrel. Is this normal or a defect? To me it looks like a chip. Would it still be safe to fire? I google for pics of benelli supernova barrels but didn't find one showing this angle. Thanks [ATTACH=CONFIG]1626[/ATTACH]
  14. Hey all, New to the site, and a new Benelli owner here (18.5" SN Tactical for those that are curious). This is my very first shotgun, so I was curious what type of lube is preferred for shotguns. I use a medium-to-heavy grease in all of my handguns and rifles. I just like the way it "stays put," you know? Anyway, what are your thoughts about grease v. oil? Is one better than the other for shotguns? I've searched on the site for this, but couldn't find anything definitive. Thanks in advance!
  15. I just got my first benelli (supernova) and I don't want to damage the camo coating when I clean it. I was thinking of using rem oil (with moisture guard) to do it all. Will that work? I wanted something to be able to put on the barrel in case of small nicks in the coating.
  16. Hi. I just bought a used supernova tactical the other day and would like to put a collapsible stock on it. Anyone know where I can find one? Thanks
  17. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations regarding what sling setup works best for a Supernova with a collapsible stock? It seems like it would be ideal to be able to use a sling in either a 1 or 2 point configuration. Also, are the holes on either side of the collapsible stock, sort of above and behind the slot for a sling, designed to incorporate a QD sling swivel? That's the only reason I could think of for them being there. Since the stock is synthetic and all the sling swivels I have seen seem to be metal, would that wear away at the holes in the stock over time? Thanks in advance for any input!
  18. To say that I do a bit of research before I buy anything is an understatement so there were a few expectations I had about the Supernova when I went to pick it up. First and foremost was that the pump might be extremely stiff until I cycled it a few hundred times. I can vouch that, at least mine, came OTB silky smooth and without much rattle. My next question is this: I live in Northern Denver out by DIA and would like take it somewhere and put a couple of hundred rounds through it. I know Colorado Clays is just down the road, but I don't think that I'm ready to spend the money without getting used to the gun. Are there any good places people around here go to target practice? I have looked and am familiar with the ranges. I'm just looking for a place that I don't have to spend too much to test it out. Thanks in advance for your help. Also, feel free to list our any pointers on the Turkey Hunting here in Northern Colorado. Best ,
  19. I'm a new member and just purchased my first Benelli (Supernova Tactical). I took it apart and put it back together but now there is a rattling noise coming from the trigger assembly AFTER the trigger has been pulled and before the action is racked. Once I rack the action the rattling stops. After I dry fire it, the rattling returns in the trigger assembly. Did I put this thing back together correctly? Should I be concerened about the rattling?

    New Supernova

  22. Moderators, please remove this extra post
  23. I recently bought a SuperNova Tactical but it didnt have the ghost ring sights. Anyone know if I can buy the hardware and fit my gun with the ghost ring sights? And if so, where do I find them??
  24. Hey folks, We have been receiving a number of requests for telescoping recoil stock for the Benelli SuperNova patterned after our popular LEO stocks for the Remington and Mossberg platforms. The only way this would be viable is if the stock support rod in the rear of the SuperNova (that simulates a recoil spring tube in a semi-auto) can be easily removed in the field. I just tried to remove the nut that is at the base of the rod at the receiver and it doesn't seem to want to come loose. I am pretty sure that, as with the magazine tube, this is never meant to be removed in the field; but I was also wondering whether, as with the magazine tube, there is a secret trick to getting it off. Obviously with a plastic shotgun receiver I am reluctant to apply a lot of heat. Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove this without destroying the weapon?
  25. There seem to be alot of posts regarding the cstock for M4s but not a whole lot on the cstock for the Supernovas. Any thoughts? I bought a Supernova Tactical with a PG stock and added a Nordic Components mag ext and a low drag follower for the fun of it. I love it. Anyway, thoughts on/pics of the Supernova cstock? Would the money be better spent on a Sidearmor rail system and shell holders? Thanks for the input.
