View Full Version : Benelli SuperNova

I'm looking to purchase this as my first shotgun but I don't have any experience with this particular weapon. Two questions
1)If I got the tactical model are the field model's barrels interchangeable with it?
2)Which over receiver rail systems for optics are proven/recommended etc?

All of the barrels will be interchangeable between the Novas. Most of the tactical models come with a scope rail, but if it doesn't, you can't go wrong with a Benelli made one. Unless you are going to shoot a lot of 3 1/2" shells, any mount should be fine, but you get what you pay for.

The Nova series are a very good shotgun, and you should be happy with it.

I used to own a Benelli SuperNova, it was a great shotgun, I only got rid of it when I traded it in on a Benelli M1 :). The SuperNova was solid, accurate, and had a very good feel for it to shoot. The M1 was just better. :D

The barrels will interchange but, they are hard to find and expensive (as is anything factory for the SN). The SN I had was a very dependable and accurate shotgun but, I sold it (steadygrip stock was too long). I can add that the shotgun was already drilled and tapped when I bought it.
