shotgunNoob Posted November 20, 2008 Share Posted November 20, 2008 (edited) Hey there- This question surfaced earlier, but I thought I would "renew" it. I have a SuperNova Tactical and noticed something weird going on with the interior finish of the chamber. There are 3 areas, all located where the barrel "slides" into the receiver chamber, that are missing the black coating found on the rest of the chamber interior. These areas are somewhat gold/silver in color and seem to be relatively symmetrical in their distribution. These areas extend roughly 2 1/2 to 3" into the chamber. When the barrel is installed you can hardly see them, if at all. Now, I contacted Benelli and they said that, upon looking at one of the shotguns they had, it is considered "normal" and would probably not be considered warranty worthy. They claimed that these areas were intentionally left bare for fitment purposes. Im somewhat dubious about this. Anyway, I have fired many rounds through this gun without issue and everything seems to work/fit properly. However, I am concerned about this exposed metal. I realize this is aluminum, but Im sure it can eventually begin to oxidize. I try to put a light coat of lubricant on these areas every 3 months or so. Still...this seems like an unneccessary problem. Any thoughts? Edited November 26, 2008 by shotgunNoob Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
