A guy in my club is selling a Nova for $325. He said he could go down to $300. He is a dealer so I understand there has to be some markup. I don't expect him to be able to match a big chain store in price, so my question is whether $300 is too much. By the way, I never thought about a Nova until I the moment I held this thing. This thing is just about the coolest pump action shotgun I have ever seen. Yes there is a lot of plastic but it feels more solid than my mossy 500 So any opinions on the price and the gun itself are welcome.

At $300 he is losing money according to my dealer price list from Benelli. Assuming this is NIB.

He is making money, but not a lot. We sell them at work, and have 12 coming in tomorrow as a matter of fact. Is it the black one with rifle sights that takes up to a 3-1/2 shell? Very popular with law enforcement here. We deal with a great deal of law enforcement types at our shop, and they tend to like them. Most are already pre-sold to them. Balming

That is exactly the one. I am thinking I might try to sell my Mossberg to buy it.

... Not really a scattergun type myself but the [b]Benelli Nova[/b] is a superbly engineered shotgun. ... So, relating to the question what's the best price out there for one? I think I'd like one. ... $279.99

Thanks for all the input, the Benelli of my dreams is gone. Sold to another club member. Well at least I can visit her at housegun matches.[:(]

I think I have less then $450 into my Benelli nova. I put mag ext and recoil reducer IF I ever shoot 3"+ magnums. It has ghost ring sights, great ergonomics, and hasn't failed on me once!! When you take apart the nova, you'll understand why it's the best pump out there. BTW, opinions on the looks tend to be extreme. You'll either find someone who thinks it's the baddest looking shotty around, or you'll find someone who thinks someone beat on it with an ugly stick. Looks had nothing to do with it for me, it was the feel, functionality, and bang for buck.
