Benelli’s Nova is truly a 21st Century pump shotgun. In a revolutionary shotgun manufacturing process, corrosion-proof polymer is over-molded on a skeleton framework to form the one-piece receiver and buttstock. The lightweight polymer stock also provides plenty of room for mounting an optional 14 oz. recoil reducer.
The Benelli SuperNova is a completely new modular design concept in pump action shotguns. With the optional SteadyGrip™ stock, the SuperNova can be transformed into a high-performance turkey gun or tack driving, fully-rifled slug gun for deer. There’s even a barrel with rifle sights for home defense, and a SuperNova Tactical fitted with a ghost-ring rear sight and pistol grip.
At the heart of this new pump gun is a lightweight steel skeleton framework over-molded with a high-tech polymer, making the new SuperNova super light, super strong and almost completely impervious to any weather condition.
But the SuperNova isn’t just tough on the outside; with its dual-action bars and two-lug rotary bolt head that locks up steel-to-steel inside the barrel, the SuperNova is rock solid to the core. Because the new SuperNova is built tough, it makes no compromises. Chambered for 2¾" and 3" shells and 3½" magnum turkey loads, this pump gun can do it all.
In comparison to its competitors, the SuperNova with ComforTech™ reduces felt recoil by as much as 62%, shot recovery time by as much as 52%, and muzzle climb by as much as 33%. The comparison test used Federal’s 3-1/2", 1-3/8oz. steel load.
