Mesa Tactical has been supplying shell carriers for the Mossberg 930 platform since November 2005, but this current announcement highlights the availability of integrated shell carriers and optics rail assemblies. Similar products have been available for the Benelli and Remington platforms for years, but this is the first time integrated shell carriers and rails have been offered for the Mossberg 930 shotguns.
“These shell carrier and rail combinations have been wildly successful since we introduced them in 2006,” said Mitch Barrie, President of Mesa Tactical, “we are pleased and excited to finally start offering quality shotgun furniture options for the popular Mossberg 930 semi-automatic shotguns.”
SureShell Aluminum shell carrier and rail assemblies feature four-, six or eight-shell aluminum shotshell yokes. Optional SureShell Polymer Shotshell Carriers are made from durable, impact resistant polymer. This new polymer shotshell carrier system, available in a six shell configuration, features shell holders injection molded from glass filled polymer, secured to the receiver by a lightweight aluminum back plate with brass threaded inserts. The SureShell Polymer Carrier also includes an innovative dual rubber friction system that reliably holds shotshells in place. Models are available with and without integral optics rail.
Shotshell yokes are fitted to a bracket incorporating a MIL-STD 1913 (NATO STANAG 4694) Picatinny rail. The rail bracket is secured to the shotgun receiver using the optics rail mounting holes already drilled and tapped into the Mossberg receiver at the factory. With most part numbers, the optics rail stretches most of the length of the shotgun receiver, or about 5 inches, allowing the mounting of a red dot scope or other target acquisition aid. A receiver length rail is also available with no shell carrier.
Whether used for tactical operations, home defense or competition, owners of this new platform will now have the ability to carry more ammunition “at the ready”, while the integrated rail system allows for further customization. SureShell carriers work well in all climates and environments, and are proven to withstand the daily use and abuse to which arsenal weapons are commonly subjected.
In addition to the Mossberg 930, SureShell® Shotshell Carriers are also available for a variety of today’s most popular shotgun models including the Remington 870, Remington semiautomatics, Mossberg 500, Mossberg 590, Beretta 1201, Beretta 1301, FN SLP, Kel-Tec KSG, Benelli M1, M2, M3, M4 and Benelli SuperNova.
