My Nova seems to pattern a bit heavier to the right of
point of aim,,, at 25 yards with the modified choke I'd say about
65-70% of the shot is right of center. I'm assuming that the rib is not quite straight with the barrel as the bead and center bead look perfect. Would the choke have anything to do with this? What can I do to fix this?
Thanks
Al

First make sure the gun is fitting correctly, it could be something simple to correct. After checking the fit have a smith check for a bent barrel and verify the choke tube threads are machined correctly.

You can always send it to Benelli and play the waiting game. :cry:

Found the problem,, front sight was screwed in a bit too far which put the visible end when sighting a hair to the left of center.
Made an adjustment and all is well.

my nova shoots low and right with slugs. Patterns perfectly with bird shot. Just gotta remember shoot high and left (VERY little) with slugs :)
