The key to success to competition shooter is to never stop and try new drills, different stances and of course to experiment with equipment.
Benelli Supernova is a great shotgun but it has some things which can be improved. One of such things is slippery forend. It has groves but plastic is slippery, I wish I could get Hogue overmolded forend for my Benelli Supernova, I miss it so much.
By the way, this is one of things why I love my Rem 870, you can choose from hundreds of upgrades! Accessories for other shotguns are very limited.
So, I decided to try Plasti Dip Rubber Coating on my Benelli Supernova shotgun. I’ve chosen transparent spray because stock and forend are painted.
I must say that Plasti Dip rubber coating really works, it is much more comfortable to hold and manipulate the weapon. Plastic is no longer slippery and allows good grip.
But I don’t recommend it (especially on forend of a pump shotgun) because here is what happened after just 2 trainings and about 200-300 rounds:
Stock survived and didn’t show any marks of wear and tear:
Tip: be sure to polish edges and remove rubber coating from parts which contact the magazine tube to make action smooth. Action will be stiff if you don’t remove Plasti Dip from parts which contact magazine tube.
