Has anyone else had similar problems? :(

There are a couple of threads about Nova pin only denting the primer and not firing, Did your pin actually break? What is broken?

I've been out of the country and not on this forum in a-while. I'm not familar with the thread on the primer's being dented. In my experience if the primer gets hit (and theres a dent) then its not the gun but the primers are bad. I've got a S&W 686 that I did a trigger job on. I made the single action pull "unsafely" light. When I tried firing it the primers wouldn't have much of a mar on them, let alone a dent. If your firing pin did indeed break, order a new one and replace it. Benelli is a good, reliable brand but your bound to have a little quality control issues here and there. Maybe try Brownells for the firing pin. They've got tons oh stuff and decent prices. I've ran about 500 rounds through a nova H20 and have had 0 problems. I'm actually suprised at how well the nickel finish has held up.
