Benelli Nova Pump

Nova Pump

Back when everyone thought that the pump action shotgun couldn’t be improved, the Benelli Nova Pump proved otherwise. Completely original and innovative, the 20-gauge or 12-gauge pump incorporates a polymer stock and lightweight receiver into a single unit for unsurpassed strength and weather resistance. Italian styling and high-tech ergonomics make the gun not only pleasing to look at, but a delight to hold and handle. Distinctive grooves on the pistol grip and forend in place of conventional checkering provides a positive gripping surface and complements the innovative engineering of the Nova Pump.

With dual-action bars and rotary head locking lugs, the Nova 12-gauge shotgun and 20-gauge shotgun handle anything from target loads to 3-1/2" magnums. Available in Black Synthetic, Realtree MAX-4® and new Realtree APG™ finishes, and as a youth model, the Benelli Nova Pump is the most versatile pump action shotgun ever made.

Push-Button Shell Stop
The button on the underside of the forend activates a shell stop, allowing a chambered shell to be removed without releasing rounds from the magazine.

Grooved Grip Surface
Checkering is for wood stocks, but the Benelli Nova Pump and SuperNova use distinctive grooves that give both an unmatched gripping surface and an unforgettably distinctive look.

Nova Pump Recoil Reducer
Benelli’s Nova Pump is truly a 21st Century pump shotgun. Corrosion-proof polymer is over-molded on a skeleton framework to form the one-piece receiver and buttstock, in a revolutionary shotgun manufacturing process. The lightweight polymer stock also provides plenty of room for mounting an optional 14-oz. recoil reducer. The Nova Pump’s stock has a recess for easy installation of a recoil-reducer bracket, which houses a 14-oz. mercury recoil reducer. When shooting the mighty 3-1/2" magnums, this innovative system is a welcome addition.

The Nova Recoil Reducer Package includes the mercury recoil reducer and bracket for easy installaton.

ComforTech Gel Recoil Pads
