SuperNova Newbie With Some Concerns

Recommended Posts

I have some concerns about my new supernova, when I remove my barrel, I dont have to bring the action / forearm down at all, the forearm can be all the way up, and action closed, i just remove the screw cap and the barrel just 'pop's right off as if it was on spring, also there is some play the forearm, when its up and action is closed, it wants to push/spring down the forearm a half a centimeter or so, which results in a small gap in-between the bolt and its housing, is any of this normal? I have shot only 3 rounds so far, with no noticeable problems

It will do that because the bolt is pushing against the barrel. It doesn't mean there is a problem, but installing it is easier with the action pulled back slightly.

Hello gdiazdetuesta, thanks for the quick reply, do you have any thoughts on my second concern, with the forearm wanted to spring back slightly as soon as I close it and remove my hand, it will spring back ever so slightly, even if i point the gun downward, which then results in a very fine gap in the bolt and its housing, is this normal ?

Also I was under the impression these supernovas bolts 'lock steel to steel' with the barrel, so I was very surprised it see the barrel pop off after unscrewing the cap when the action was fully closed

Mine does the same. I know that the bolt is spring loaded in the carrier so one the bolt is closed it pushes the carrier back slightly and the fore arm is connected to the carrier. It should not be an issue... I have several hundred rounds through mine and over a hundred 3 1/2 mags.

No Problem Welcome to the forum and have a great time with your super nova. I spent 8 months customizing mine and I love it.:D

 

What customizations did you do to it? You can any pics of it?
