Period of
Product Use:
6 months
2 years
Products Used:
nothing like it. held a pgi mayhem, which is a gun designed with many of the same veatures, but after airstar sold the designs, the next 2 companies slaughtered the design. cockers are almost as quiet.....almost.
Marker Setup: nova 700, 45 grip frame, remote line, 12volt revy with x board.
not a whole lot were made, simply bc the stock version is awesome! there are a few barrels out there, it can accept 45 style grip frames if you dont like the euro grip. if you get lucky you can find the electronic frame made for novas.
Strengths: Super accurate
Fast for a manual trigger
Weaknesses: Few upgrades
No company
Review: i got my nova off of ebay about 6 months ago for 160 shipped with a hard-case. pretty good bang for the buck. ok first off this is a great gun. alot of people diss this gun, but they have never used it. you ll hear alot of rumors about it blowing up or some bs like that, but that is as previously stated bs. About 200 Nova 700s were recalled with a safety concern. The recalled Nova 700s can be identified by serial numbers 991 1500 through 991 1787. so it was only a few, and the problem was minor. in the one case it blew up, a series of events happened , the owner was shooting it while it was disassembled. so he was just a plain idiot. parts are hard to find for novas, but they rarely break unless you are a moron. its simple, you don't give a 10 yr old kid who is just learning to play paintball a angel, so if you are a retard don't get a nova. very simple to field strip, just turn on the safety, undo the barrel squeegee the barrel, insert , twist, safety off, go back to pasting. it shouldn't take more than like 10 seconds.i only had one problem with my nova when i got it . the o-ring on the barrel is a rather uncommon size. it is quite large. ok you know that rubber will wear out over time. in the sun it will shrink and crack or what ever. same thing will happen to an o ring over the course of time. the oring was shrunk, and wouldn't seal. i took it to a local proshop, and they had it for 3 weeks trying to order an o-ring. but they were dumb. i just used some teflon tape the oring, and it sealed like a charm. doesn't hurt the gun in anyway, and teflon is used on pretty much on all paintball guns. the nova is wicked sick accurate. it puts balls on top of each other, every time. i played some guys yesterday with cockers and imps. both complained on several occasions that my gun was quote " too d**n accurate" they would lay waste to the bunker i was behind, but not get a ball near me, and i would pop out, and whiz a few right past their faces. they hide real quick when that happens. super consistent at the chrono just yesterday. barely fluctuates by 1fps either way. decent firing rate. i would estimate around 12bps. many say the nova has by far the best manual trigger on the market. if you could find a double trigger id say 13-14 bps. no need to upgrade the barrel. 12 inch un ported, but super accurate, and quieter than every cocker ive heard. you could do some custom upgrades with a little ingenuity. the nova is also great for woods-ball, or scenario games. very quiet and accurate, makes for an excellent sniper weapon. you can honestly play all day on a 9 ounce. a few weeks back we played woods-ball for about 6 hours. i shot off about 800 balls. down to the very last shot, they were all just as quiet, accurate, and had the same range. scenario players or any players for that matter wont have to refill the tank as often. excellent for woods-ball.
Conclusion: The nova is a great gun. If you can find one in good condition, get it, well worth the money. If you have some skill you can keep up with players at your local field. It easily keeps up with cockers and mags. Not as fast as imps, but way more accurate, so in my book they are about even. You my be behind on the speed, but your way ahead on the accuracy. If you can get one and you are competent enough to take care of it, it will never fail you. Go out buy one nowww! For more tech info on novas go to
