Default Benelli Nova

I just bought a Benelli Nova 20 gauge pump, 26 in barrel in black. So far I have two problems with it. When racking a shell from the magazine to the chamber, it often fails to feed the shell, and sometimes drops it on the ground. The other issue, is even with light target loads, it slaps my cheekbone every time I shoot it, making it less comfortable to shoot than one of my 12 gauges. It doesn't seem to kick that hard, and I've never had a shotgun kick sideways before?

First off, I'd have to figure out how to get the D--- thing to fire more than one round without misfeeding!

Yesterday I fired 10 slugs through my Nova 12 gauge. It never slapped my cheek but it sure pounded my shoulder. My 308 felt like a 22lr after that. Functioned perfectly.

Grey, you may want to go over to Tom Knapp - The Shooting Star, and post a message in the gun forum to Craig Johnson he's the Customer Service Manager for Benelli, and sounds like a nice guy, probably could help you out.
