Benelli Super Nova not feeding 2nd shell

Was out hunting this weekend for crows and after working fine for the first few volleys my Super Nova started pumping my live rounds out on the ground when I worked the action. Has anyone else dealt with this issue?

That actually happened to me once with my old Nova, I was shooting at a turkey and when I fired, a live round popped out the bottom. Never knew what caused it, and didn't do it any more after that

Re: Benelli Super Nova not feeding 2nd shell

I asked in another forum and heard that it happens fairly often with this had t gun. There is talk of it and the remedy in the Benelli forums. Basically I can send it back to them or have a gunsmith polish the area that is hanging up. Not really thrilled as this will be the second time I've had to have a gunsmith work on my Benelli which I bought for the supposed quality. (First time was to adjust the factory 12.5 pound trigger pull)

I hear ya about the trigger. The one on my new Supernova feels like dragging a cinder block through the sand.

How was yours after it was worked on?

It's much better now. Mine was actually so hard to pull that several times I tried to shoot at game and would bring the gun down and say $*&^ I left the safety on, then I would check and it was off. After that happend about three times I took it in and had the work done.
