This is a discussion on Benelli Nova Pump.....is this normal? within the Defensive Rifles & Shotgun Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; I have had a couple of 870s in my lifetime but this is my first Benelli. You can stand it vertical and pull the trigger ...
I have had a couple of 870s in my lifetime but this is my first Benelli.
You can stand it vertical and pull the trigger (dry fire) and you can see the forearm jump slightly and the bolt drops back a bit.
Shot it for the first time yesterday and it worked great but I noticed that after a shot you could turn it sideways and look at the ejection port and see that the bolt dropped back slightly and about 1/4 of the empty shell is visible. I don't remember this being the case on any of the Remingtons I've had but it's been a couple of years since I messed around with a shotty.
This thing is a sweet shooter...just curious about this almost "self ejecting" condition.
To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.
That's OK. My SuperNova does the same.
