No, but I'll talk you in to buying it. I really like the BNT shotgun. If it feels good on you, I'd get it in a heart beat. My son has a super nova. It's fast and he loves it.I have been checking this one out for the past few days at the local Gander (LGS doesn't stock Benelli, wtf), and it's really starting to grow on me. This will be my first shotgun, only other gun is a p239. I already found a +2 mag extension for the right price, which puts it in line with the Moss500 and Rem870. Action seems super smooth, ergos are there, ghost ring sights installed are great, and there are 2 features that really beat out the m500 and 870 for me.
1. Up to 3 1/2 inch shells. I would probably be ok with up to 3", but that big ol' ejection port is a nice addition to the next point,
2. Magazine block button on the forearm. A button that allows you to shuck the slide back, ejecting the presently loaded shell or hull, without preparing a new shell, which allows you to breech-load (I guess that would be the correct term?) a specialty shell of choice, such as a single slug, without emptying the magazine. I assume that this is NOT a feature on the m500 and 870.
Can anyone talk me out of this gun at $400? I know that the stock is basically irreplaceable, as it is molded all the way up to the barrel, but the LOP and ergos are perfect for me the way they are.
The price on it just seems like one of those "too good to be true" things, like the SigPro.
Help me out. Thanks!
Regarding shooting 3 1/2 inch slugs or buckshot, no thanks. I don't even like shooting the 3 inch shells, especially with a lighter weight, short barrel. It is too brutal. 2 3/4 inch are plenty of firepower for my HD purposes.
Let us know if you snag the Benelli.
