My brother told me that his girlfriends Brother lost his wife over this gun. So it is a definate buy! It was either the GUN or HIM , she said so herself, well....... He is now divorced. Benjamin

Benelli Nova is the only reason NOT to buy a Remington 870. Tom Knapp set the new world record for hand thrown targets with a Nova.

Good reviews from two trusted sources. A must buy. Will report tommorow how it patterns.

I suppose proof is in the pudding - I haven't fired mine yet. [It's the "Nova Special Purpose" - 12GA/18.5"bbl/3.5"shells]. Saw it on the shelf for $214; couldn't resist! Fit, finish, ergonomics are execellent. Way way better than my claptrap Mossberg 500. Looking to get a mag extension for that extra round or two... -Bill Wiese -San Mateo, CA

You guys will learn soon enough but I'll tell you anyway. Before firing 3 1/2 magnums, which the nova can handle, option the mercury recoil reduction system. The spec purp is my favorite 12 ga. pump.

Anyplace online that sells the recoil reduction system? (Checked brownells already and they have nada)...

I have this co-worker that shoots the Benelli and has never cleaned it. He has duck hunted in Arkansas rice fields for 3 years now and never so much as wiped it down with a rag. It looks 40 years old and shoots everytime he pulls the trigger. Even he can't kill this weapon.

ugly as sin IMHO, but a great shooter. i love the little button on the pump that allows you to clear the chamber with out pulling a round from the magizene. great for old fasion iowa road hunting. get the recoil reducer. if any gun will break you, it is a 3 1/2 chambered super light pump. i have heard horror stories.
