benelli supernova trouble

Postby huntman » Fri Jan 25, 2013 8:25 am

Im having trouble with my supernova that i only use duck hunting and probably has a case of shells through it. The problem is when i pull the trigger the gun will click the firing pin will hit barely hit the primer ill try the same shell over and over then place a new one and it will usually fire then i place the 1st shell back and it fires, it makes no sense. all i can think is firing pin trouble but want confirmation. Also i have cleaned the gun 100% every where but the trigger will get locked in the firing position and i have to pull it back to be able to shoot again any suggetions?

Are you closing it all the way? Slam it closed. I haven't had this problem with the 3 I have.

Put no lube on the firing pin it's chrome plated and will not rust, just clean it with solvent and wipe dry. I have seen this a couple times with other peoples guns and have cleaned it for them as described above, problem solved.

The trigger sticking back is also a known issue. It results from the cross pin (pin that holds the trigger inside the trigger assembly) becomes rusty or dirty causing internal binding of of the trigger. I actually had this issue on my old Nova several years back, pin was rusted on the inside where you could not see it.
