View Full Version : New Benelli!

September 7, 2009, 02:18 AM
I picked up a new Benelli Supernova 12 gauge Tactical today.


Next thing I'll be lookin' into is a tube extension and tritium sights and maybe a four shot side saddle, Anyone got any good links for such critters!

Cheaper than dirt and E-bay or Gunbroker.com should have all you are looking for. John

I was hoping this thread was about another convert to the Benelli Super Sport.

I wasted a click.

It was the OP's name that fooled you. Don't feel too bad, he got me, too. Let's see if he sucks in BigJimP, the Supersporter. ;)

Nordic, Surecycle and DMW make the best quality magazine tubes. Choate and TacStar are budget tubes... some have no problems, others do.

Mesa Tactical makes the highest quality side saddles. They just came out with a 1913 rail mount model for the Super Nova.


Tritium... you're on your own.

For the extension, I would strongly recommend the Nordic Components +2:


For the carrier, in order to avoid the potential hassle of dealing with stripped screws, I might suggest (particularly for the Benelli SteadyGrip stock) going with the Mesa Tactical buttstock mounted 4-shell carrier:


I have tried all of these on my Benelli SNT (identical to the one you showed) and I stand by NC for their extensions and MT for their carriers. Now, if you decide against the buttstock mounted carrier and opt for the receiver mounted version (I have tried both on my Benelli), I would go no further than the 4-shell carrier as you may run into problems in terms of balance and/or forend battery issues. Also, I would strongly recommend using LocTite Blue on those mounting screws upon installation.

For the tritium sights, you might try Meprolight. I use these on my Mossberg but have yet to worry about them for my Benelli.

Good buy! I just shot 6 dove and 1 hog with my SuperNova. Great fieldgun...I'm sure a tactical would've been just as good.
