bought a nova


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a used Nova with 24" barrels and the recoil softening system. The gentleman I purchased it from told me he bought it for use in goose pits where he needed the shorter barrel. My question is, does Benelli have a 28" or 30" barrel available. I have been told at several clubs that they are out there but I haven't seen them in Benelli's catalog. would I benefit from getting this longer barrel ported?

Porting will make it really loud, but it will reduce muzzle climb.


Did you know that the sighting plane on a 24" pump is about the same as it on a 28" o/u?

The longer receiver accounts for the difference.

With today's modern chokes and propellants, barrel length matters a lot less than it used to.


However, if your heart's set on the longer barrel, they can be had.

This site shows a 26" nova barrel as an accessory.

You may also find them on ebay, gunbroker.com, auctionarms.com, and other such sites from time to time.

One, your post makes little to no sense.


Two, Benelli doesn't produce a 32" barrel for the Nova (nor does any aftermarket manufacturer of which I know).


In general, your post was a waste of space. If you don't know what you are talking about, leave the subject be (don't see me commenting on much other than the Novas and a little waterfowl).


Usually I'm all about helping out those less fortunate in the brain department, but I'm going to have to side with Tucker on this one.
