Switch safety to LH on SuperNova


Recommended Posts

Yes, there is, but it's not for the faint of heart.

The detent and spring are underneath the crossbolt, instead of on top.

It takes a special kind of evil genius to design something like that.


Benelli will most likely reverse it for you at no charge, if you call them about it. But you may not get it back in time for turkey season this year, if that's an issue.


A really good smith can do it as well.

I did mine myself when I had a Nova, but that was just me.

I cannot see anyway to depress the detent.


Therein lies your quandary.


IIRC, I fashioned a tool out of a small flat-tipped screwdriver and slid it underneath the crossbolt to depress the detent and spring. With the pressure off, the crossbolt slips out.


The trick is keeping it depressed and reversing the crossbolt and reinserting it... with just two hands.


Be sure and do the work in an area that's condusive to finding small parts after they fly across the room.

I believe I had to use a magnet to get my spring out of a heating vent.
