The Benelli SuperNova embodies a modular design concept in a pump action shotgun. With the optional SteadyGripâ„˘ stock, this 12-gauge shotgun can be transformed into a high-performance turkey gun or mount a fully-rifled slug barrel for tack-driving accuracy on deer. Itâ€™s like having several Benelli shotguns in one. Thereâ€™s even a barrel with rifle sights for home defense and a SuperNova Tactical fitted with a ghost-ring rear sight and pistol grip.
At the heart of this new pump gun is a lightweight steel skeleton framework over-molded with a high-tech polymer, making the new SuperNova super-light, super-strong and almost completely impervious to any weather condition. But the SuperNova isnâ€™t just tough on the outside. With its dual-action bars and two-lug rotary bolt head that locks up steel to steel inside the barrel, the SuperNova is rock solid to the core.
The SuperNovaâ€™s newly styled trigger guard, similar to the Super Black Eagle II, allows for 30% more finger room for a gloved hand. In addition, a new larger safety button provides easy acquisition and quick, positive function.
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.
Optional Extended Special-Purpose Chokes
Three special purpose-standard choke tubes: (1) Turkey-choke specially designed to throw tight, uniform patterns with today's modern turkey loads, (2) Pass-choke for long-range waterfowl pass shooting and (3) Decoys-choke for waterfowl.
Optional ComforTech Gel Comb Insert
The ComforTech Gel Comb Insert is made from a special synthetic gel originally developed for the medical industry. This special insert not only cushions the shooter's cheek during recoil, it also has a slippery surface that allows the cheek to slide along the surface for added comfort. Available in standard thickness, raised comb for target shooting or extra-high comb for scoped guns.
Optional Rifle Sights
The Benelliâ€™s adjustable rear and fixed blade front sights will get the job done in any weather.
