Not anything I'd consider buying, especially if I wasn't particularly in the market for one like that.

I have owned two Novas and there was nothing about them that I cared for. Needless to say, I dont own one anymore.

If you continue to shop for a new gun. You might take a look at the Escort Supreme. I have bought both a 20ga and a 12ga in the past six months. I fell for that gun from the first time I saw one on a dealer's shelf. Even though I own three Benellis which are my favorite. I may have found a new favorite in the Escort. I was amaized at how affordable this gun is as well as its features and how well its put together. I have no doubt it will hold up for me over time. Academy Sports sells this semi auto for $449. So you might take a look at one and do some online research of the reviews. So far, everything about this gun seems to be first class. I personally like its wood stocks, 3" chamber, black chrome barrel which eleminates rust, and its sweet balance. It comes with case and drop shims and LOP shims. Anyway, its worth a look. You might fall for it like I did.

Thanks - I'll have to stop by Academy Sports next time I'm in Little Rock. The Seller on that Nova, dropped it to $400 and is now wanting to trade for another shotgun.

My last Nove was a Max4 camo version and if memory serves me I was at a gun show trying to get 400 out of it. I ended up doing a trade to unload it. I am glad to be done with them. I have a friend that has a nova and it doesnt fit him. Since the stock is part of the action there is no way to put a wood stock on it and cut the LOP for a good fit. He is just stuck with what he has. Gun fit is so important if you intened to live with a gun. Trying to cut a synthetic stock down is a nightmare for most. You made a very smart decsion to pass on that gun! If you will let me know your email addy, I can send you some of my pics on the Escort along with the details I have learned about its features along with shooting it. My addy is tengaokie@aol.com. I got my 12ga new at a reduced cost lower than Academy. I can fill you in on how I did that.
