does the nova pump unlock the slide when you fire the weapon like a Winchester 1300 and a rem 870 or does it stay locked like the mossberg?  I noticed in the gun shop that when you drop the hammer you have to relax your off hand and then work the pump.  it is billed as the fastest pump shotgun and Tom Knapp broke 8 hand thrown clays with it.  so their must be some sort of "recoil unlocking" mechanism for the slide?

It will not lock if a round is fired.
If your dry firing, it will lock.

Are you saying the Nova is the fastest pump to work?

I would think the length of the throw would be the biggest factor in this. The nova's action is made for 3 1/2 shells, which means the throw is longer, then most.
