quack Posted August 29, 2009 Share Posted August 29, 2009 Hi, I'm new to this forum and yesterday I purchased my first Benelli. I bought a Super Nova with the max-4 camo finish to use as my dedicated waterfowl gun. I have shot a BPS for years and love it, but I wanted to get away from the shiny finish and get something easier to disassemble and clean after being exposed to moisture and dust from cattails. I have not even fired this gun yet but I must say that I am a bit disappointed right out of the box. After cleaning and properly oiling the gun the action is still incredibly rough. The gun pumps very hard and wants to bind if you don't slam it back hard. My question is this: Although I realize that some break in will be needed are these guns typically this rough out of the box and do they come out of it and start operating smoothly? I plan on running a four boxes of shells through it in the next few days on some clays and then dove hunting with it next week. Duck season isn't far away and I want a smooth and reliable gun on opening day. I've still got my tried and true BPS but I'm hoping I won't have to leave my new $500 gun at home. Any advice on breaking these things in would be greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
