"Special purpose" means different things to different Benelli users. Personal security afloat requires a special shotgun — the Benelli Nova H2O. The Nova''s largely polymer exterior makes a corrosion-resistant start, and the special metal treatment of the H2O version completes the puzzle. The barrel, magazine tube, magazine cap, trigger group and all other inner metal parts are nickel-plated to survive the wettest, saltiest environments. The heavy molded-in grooving of the pistol grip and fore-end mean your grasp will be secure, regardless the sea state, and unlike wood, polymer won''t swell when wet. The Nova can swallow just about any ammunition you can feed it: shot, slugs, rubber ball loads or pyrotechnics. Whatever the challenge you face on open water, the Nova H2O will be ready for action.
With a chrome-plated rotary bolt head and a matte nickel-finished bolt body, the Nova H2O is ready to take on the harshest weather and keep on firing.
