I think it will be interesting for you to see what’s inside of the plastic receiver of the Benelli Supernova. Here are x-ray photos:
My friend bought a brand new Benelli Supernova and found a choke with defect. One of the chokes had very strange looking edge.
The Benelli Supernova is a type of pump action shotgun that is most commonly used for self defense, hunting and competitive shooting. But perhaps its best known qualities are its reliability, durability and large trigger guard. It is also a light weight shotgun because of its composite steel construction. If you don’t have an internal reducer then the recoil on this shotgun will be pretty tough to put up with. The internal recoil reducer will help the shooter become more accurate with their shots by reducing the recoil. This will help the shooter get a faster second shot as well.
Bought, installed and tested HFD2 Compression Follower. I really liked gold color but it is similar to color of shell, so bright colors are better for safety reasons.
This follower fits Benelli Nova, Nova Tactical & Super Nova in 12 Gauge. It is good alternative to Nordic Components followers. HFD2 Compression Follower has tail which prevents spring from binding and kinking.
Machined from 6061 T6 Aluminum which is lightweight and corrosion resistant.
Broken Benelli Supernova forend on training today. Piece of the forend stuck inside and shotgun was not functional.
My friend bought a new Benelli Supernova and asked me to help with basic tuning modification for practical shooting.
So, we started polishing action bars, it makes work of a shotgun smoother:
This happened to one of the shooters on shotgun competition. Firing pin on his Benelli Supernova stuck in forward position and slamfire discharge occured when he pushed forend forward loading shell into a chamber.
The problem was in firing pin. It is little deformed (probably from dry-fire trainings). That caused it to stuck in forward position. It looks like the metal is too soft and easy to deform:
Found one more interesting pic from recent training. This what can happen to a shotshell:
Offtopic today. I own Benelli Supernova shotgun. It was working good for a very long period of time. I’ve put about 15,000-20,000 rounds through it. The only problem I’ve had was a light primer strike on my Benelli Supernova. It was easy to fix.
We use Benelli Supernova shotguns in our club. That is very good shotgun for competitions. It is reliable and enables you to load it fast.
We have found out that hammer spring and hammer spring cap should be replaced after 5000-10000 of rounds due to light primer strikes. This problem was found on two shotguns.
I have already had article about Light Primer Strike on shotguns.
