DSEi 09: Benelli Super Nova Short Barreled Shotgun

On display at the DSEi 2009 defense expo was this cut down Benelli Super Nova pump action shotgun. Apparently it is popular with South American Law Enforcement.

In this short and stock-less configuration it is more like a pistol than it is a shotgun.

The information and photo were kindly provided by Lusaka who took the time to hunt for, and photograph, new and interesting arms on display at the expo. Thanks Lusaka, your efforts are appreciated. More cool guns from the show will be posted tomorrow.

    I want to purchase my first shotgun and have decided to go with the benelli supernova. I will use this mainly to shoot clays but also want the tactical capabilities. My question is can I buy the field version and tactical barrel as well, can they be switced out ? If you can help please e-mail me at jonjon4311 [at] aol [dot] com .
