Benelli Nova® Field Pump Shotgun
I have had a nova pump with a 28" barrel for 4 years now. I have never had a problem with this gun, and I am a duck hunter who is not easy on my gun. Nothing beats the reliability of a pump action shotgun for duck hunting in harsh conditions, and the nova is %100 up to the task. This gun is extremely simple to disassemble and clean, requiring no tools as the magazine cap also functions as a pin punch. While it is a little on the heavy side, the reliability cant be beat, especially for the money. This gun also shoulders and shoots very well. This is a great gun for a serious duck hunter who doesn't want to break the bank and wants extreme reliability in harsh conditions.

Most Reliable Shotgun on the Market
I've had my Nova for 6 years and have put it through the worst conditions imaginable while hunting ducks. No matter how wet, cold, or dirty it gets, it always cycles three rounds. It has outperformed 870's, A5's, SBE's, and many more. I always hear people complain about their gun not cycling shells, but I have fired thousands of rounds through my Nova and have never had it jam or anything. At 500 dollars, you're making a mistake buying anything else.

Bought this gun for turkey hunting and I have even shot skeet with it after changing out the choke tube and have not had it jam one time even with low brass shells

best buy in its price range. amazingly tight pattern with 000 buckshot and the factory full choke. it cycles easily and shoulders well. ergonomics are much better than the competition. its light and recoil is pretty harsh with heavy loads. I had to buy an aftermarket choke to get a usable pattern with turkeyshot.
