Benelli Nova Tactical Pump 20051 12 Gauge

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: A
The Benelli pump-action shotgun impressed all our raters. The lockup is tight, the build quality is impressive. Its patterning with buckshot was better than the other shotguns. The sights are among the best combat-style units we have seen on a factory shotgun. We liked the loading gate and the ability to cut off the magazine instantly, if need be, to change munitions. This is a lot of gun for the money. Benelli also has a 10-year warranty.

The Benelli pump's sights were voted best of the test and are perhaps the best we have tested. A bold front post with a white-dot outline make good hits easier with the Benelli.
We liked pressing the loading gate down to load. It stays locked in place until the shotgun is fully loaded.
Fired offhand, the Benelli is comfortable enough due to stock design and an efficient recoil pad.
Winchester's formidable PDX slug produced good results during testing.
