SureShell® Aluminum Carrier For Remington (Side Saddle)
Most of our SureShell shotshell carriers mount directly to the receiver of leading shotgun platforms.
Our SureShell shotshell carriers retain ammunition reliably and, being metal, can withstand the rigors of daily use and abuse. Fabricated from aircraft aluminum, they feature an innovative rubber friction retention system and tough construction to endure years of use and abuse.
SureShell carrier yokes are milled from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum, then bead blasted and Mil-spec hard anodized for a rugged non-glare finish. SureShell yokes are secured to application-specific brackets, and some SureShell carriers include high temperature adhesive-backed die-cut rubber gaskets to protect the host shotgun’s finish. A unique arrangement of threaded fasteners secures the shell holder to the shotgun receiver without the risk of stripping threads in the aluminum bracket.
SureShell shotshell carriers are available in three configurations: four-shell, six-shell and eight-shell. The six-shell and eight-shell configurations can be installed on the left side of the receiver, while the four-shell carriers can be installed on either side of the receiver. Carriers can also be installed pointed back toward the stock.
The receiver mounting scheme of our receiver mount SureShell carriers for the Remington shotguns uses a combination of steel fasteners threaded into a steel pin (at the rear) and paired Chicago screws (up front) for more secure attachment to the shotgun without the risk of pinching the receiver. The mounting plate even features a window over the shotgun serial number location, to make it easier for armorers to inventory their weapons. Note that SureShell shotshell carriers cannot be installed on the right side of Remington semi-auto shotguns.
To use a six- and eight-shot SureShell carrier mounted on the left side of the Remington 870 shotgun, you must use a tactical forend that does not overlap the receiver, or a factory forend that is cut down appropriately. SureFire® forends are fully compatible with our six-shot SureShell carriers, but will need about ½ inch shaved off the end to be installed with our eight-shot SureShell carriers. Remington side mount SureShell carriers are available in both 12 gauge and 20 gauge models.
Optional stock mount shell carriers attach to the sides of standard M4 Carbine buttstocks, the cheek riser of the Urbino Tactical stock, and the Benelli pistol grip fixed stock (does not fit Benelli M4 stock or Urbino Tactical stock).

Factory shotgun forends, except “tactical” forends, often feature significant receiver overlap when the bolt is pulled back. These forends will need to be cut down or replaced with aftermarket “tactical” forends to be used with some SureShell shotshell carriers. Before you install a SureShell shotshell carrier, measure your forend’s receiver overlap and compare it to the furthest forward point of the shotshell carrier. Then cut any potential overlap or interference off the end of the forend with a miter saw or a rotary arm saw for a perfect fit.

Great accessory for my Remington tactical shotgun. Fit perfectly.
Perfect fit, solid construction, protective adhesive gasket, and a slip proof grip on the shells. This is a well designed and engineered product, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a shell carrier.
Installed on my 870 express tactical. Pins and screws are provided for different trigger pin sizes. Holds the shells securely and also comes with a softer rubber for less grip on the shells. I'll buy another when I get another shotgun.
Ordered this for my Remington 870. It shipped the next day and came in very quickly. It fits on the shotgun perfectly. Highly recommend this product.
Great product, very sturdy and well built!
This is not the first time I ordered the product and it certainly is not the last. I specifically went with the Mesa 6 round sureshell aluminum carrier because it is a proven entity. It will hold additional rounds and also be sturdy for the long hall. It will not shift, get lose, nor get snagged or lost. I got several of them for HD shotguns to keep around. I know that the side saddle can withstand hard-use and not fail. While cloth shell carriers with hook and loop are available and have a little bit of a weight savings, they do loosen over time. The sureshell carrier comes with two different tubes and give a consistent pressure and will not lose a round. I have had another one, on another 870 kept at another place, it has held those same shells for over 10 years and has not loosen one bit, yet still can easily retrieve a round when needed to load the 870. If you need a reliable, tough side saddle that you can depend on, without second thoughts. The Sureshell Aluminum Carrier is for you. No doubts ever.
The sure shell aluminum shell holder is the best quality I could find on the market. The engineering is exquisite and it holds the shells tightly. I really like the rubber gasket that’s on the back so it will not come in contact with your Receiver. A+++
I purchased the metal side saddle. Very well made. Install was simple and sturdy. Highly recommend.
As advertised.A must have for your Remington shotgun.Well made using high quality materials.Easy install.
