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. The SuperNova won the prestigious Shooting Academy of Excellence Award as the 2006 Shotgun of the Year. The Academy honors companies, products and individuals who represent excellence within the shooting industry.
