Default Nova pump problem

Hey, I've got a nova pump 12ga that's got an issue. When the carrier is pushed up (like you're loading a shell into the magazine), it gets stuck in the "up" position and the slide will not come back unless the trigger is pulled or the carrier is pulled back down with a twig or something. I think it's a spring, but I'm not sure which one or how to get to it. I figured I'd come here before taking it to a shop, so can anyone help me out?

That gun is simple to pull the trigger assembly out and look. Are you familiar with how to remove it?

Yeah I've seen a few videos, looks simple enough. I Judy haven't had the chance to break it down

It's been Awhile since I had mine. When the two pins are removed and the trigger assembly is pulled out you can see everything. I'd bet you just need to spray some gun scrubber in it and move it around and spray it some more. I may be wrong but pretty sure it's a piston plunger type system that pushes it back down. Mine used to hang up and cleaning it always corrected it. No disassembly of the trigger assembly was required.

Once its out of the gun no other disassembly is what I'm saying.

I've fixed a few doing the same thing...a good cleaning and quality gun oil has done the trick. At least in my instances...you never know until you look inside. Hope its easy for ya

Get a product called gun butter. It works better than gun oil for certain situations. Instead of running like oil it tends to stay where you put it.
