The nova is way to nose heavy. Well built gun though

I'm thinking the Nova is no trap gun. Not by any measure.
Duck gun? Sure, why not.

I have a 20 gauge 870 express, that was my first gun i ever owned, bought on my 10th bday for me to use that year and i dont know about anyone else's experience with the express vs wingmaster, but the gun has never failed me, never failed to eject, had a few dud shells that were the shells fault, i did break the stock but thats because I was a meat head and accidently smashed it off a tree when I fell in the woods

870 wingmaster all the way. I have literally seen mossbergs and novas fall apart. I mean literally stocks and foreends falling off the gun and slides breaking. This is not even counting jams with mossberg autoloaders. I highly doubt that phil and jase would ever shoot a mossberg.

Also, I would love to see somebody machine a pump without having a little wiggle in the slides, not going to happen. I have a remington model 31 manufactured in the 40's. The gun is a tank and still has a little wiggle. And by the way. THAT model was used as a trench gun along side the winchester 1897. Hell, even my original winchester 1897 is a wiggle and that is not the breakdown version.

:no:

I totally agree with cluckmeister on everybody having opinions and holes. but I have no idea why police trust mossberg. Id rather pull out a bow and arrow. Just because it goes bang, doesnt mean its a quality firearm

Im right about there being no academy here, but i was just at dunhams sports and I shouldered the TR semi auto import, and the HR import excel semi in synthetic. The TR i looked at was very impressive LOOKING. High gloss walnut, blued finish. no rough machining. But just the thought of a cheap, foreign semi auto import with virtually no way to get replaced or fixed is just to risky for me. If They had a better reputation in the warranty or customer service aspect. Maybe, but otherwise there just to risky. also looked at the p350 ( no thanks, way to bulky, lop was too long ) rem. 870 EXP ( I know they're 8mil strong and easy to fix at any time, but again, not for me ).
