LEO® Gen II Hydraulic Recoil Starter Pack for Rem 870 (12-GA only)
The concept is simple: the shotgun stock is replaced by an adapter that mimics the stock attachment point of an AR-15 lower receiver. This adapter accepts an AR-15 receiver buffer tube. The AR-15 collapsible stock and pistol grip can then be reliably attached to the shotgun.
There are two lines of Mesa Tactical telescoping stock adapters:
1. High-tube® telescoping stock adapters, that require the use of rail mounted optics;
2. LEO® telescoping stock adapters, which feature a stock elevation about an inch lower than the High-tube adapters and so don’t require sighting or aiming aids.
The most important capability of these adapters is to facilitate the use of collapsing or telescoping stocks, which provide a shorter length of pull (LoP) than the factory stock, which is especially important for law enforcement or “tactical” operators. In addition, these stock adapters accept a hydraulic buffer from Kynshot™ that reduces felt recoil. The Mesa Tactical/Kynshot combination is by far the most robust and most effective of several recoil-reducing shotgun stock systems on the market.
Hydraulic recoil starter kits include the stock adapter and hydraulic recoil buffer, plus installation hardware (no stock or grip).
