I recieved this Carver G17 NOVA racegun ealier this month and now, since I have now had time to test it, I decided to share. The NOVA is the first, the prototype, in a new line of Carver Custom Glock "muscle car" themed raceguns. Having two other Carver raceguns I have some experience with their capabilities but this one simply blew my mind. The slide has been lightened, six angle slide cuts reduce weight allowing for faster cycle rate and more reliable cycling with light loads, that also gives you faster follow up shots. The frame has been customized, it is sporting a Titanium grey cerakote finish. The trigger gaurd has been undercut and the finger grooves removed, this gives you a higher grip and tighter grip which in turn gives you more control and , once again, faster follow up shots. The Carver mount is a proven system that is as stable a optics mounting platform as one could ever wish for and the CMore Slideride provides a sharp, crisp, and fast target aquisition. The Carver "Big Mouth" aluminum magwell makes the gun have a more balanced feel while giving te shooter a decided advantage when reloading, once again the NOVA proves to be fast in this respect. The Carver four port compensator reduces felt recoil while almost totally getting rid of muzzle flip. When I shot the gun, using WWB 115gr q-loads and a Wolff 11 pound recoil spring I had no failures of any kind. The gun grouped extremely tight and is simply the fastest Glock I have ever laid hands on. If you are thinking of trying any competitive shooting and decide to shoot in the open division then I sincerely hope you will take my words to heart and contact Bobby Carver at B&B Enterprise for your Glock shooting needs. ALL Carver raceguns share one thing in common, when describing them the word you will here most is "FAST".
