the supernuge Posted January 15, 2010 Share Posted January 15, 2010 I have a 3 1/2 Nova which is starting to give me some trouble. What I can only describe as feeding and loading issues are plaguing me. I bought this gun for one reason and one reason alone. This is my waterfowl gun. I expect it to get wet, dirty, muddy (within reason) and it still perform. This season I have had several situations where upon trying to fire a follow up shot I get a "misfire." Let me qualify this. The follow up shell is racked, seated and the trigger pulled. The shell does not fire. As with any "fault condition" I eject the "bad" shell as I would with any firearm upon malfuction. The next and third shell is then racked and seated. It fires fine. As I examine the second "misfire" shell I see that it had not been struck by the firing pin. If the shell is clean, I will use it again with no ill effects. That is issue #1 Issue #2 is even more recent. Upon loading three rounds and racking the first round I pulled up to fire. Nothing. It was as if the safety was on. The bird passed, I tried to clear the condition. I brought the shell back with the slide and rammed it home again. This time it fired. My question(s) is this: Am I doing something wrong or do I need it repaired? Can a Benelli be made to slide upon fire like an 870 or not?
