FP6 or Nova?

Would anyone choose one above the other?

FP6:
Good: Carbon fiber finish, folding stock available.
Bad: Neat features of plain black FP6 missing on carbon fiber model.

Nova:
Good: It's a Benelli, duh. Can transition to slug, not sure if the FP6 can.
Bad: Not sure.

Never looked @ the FP6, but I wouldn't cross it off my list. Looks like a great shotgun for the $$. As far as features go, the Nova can be had with ghost rings for a relatively inexpensive price, that is, if ghost rings pump your tires. Personally, I like the Nova and find that it points and swings well for me, then again almost all Benellis swing well for me...go figure...

I have a Nova SP with rifle sights. I have no experince with the other.

My Nova cost 300.00 I can get them for that price all day. I was going to get GR for it to match the M1. I thought about it and decide to get the rifle sights. Reason if I chose to shoot skeet with it I can just change the bbl, or get a slug bbl etc. With GR you can not do this.

Great gun, very light, very fast and a pleasure to shoot. Sights are right on. I am very impressed with it.

Great shotgun.
