Mesa Tactical SureShell Aluminum Shotshell Carriers with Rail combine a shell carrier with a MIL-STD-1913 (NATO STANAG 4694) Picatinny rail that accepts optical, sights, lasers or accessories. These shotshell carrier/rail systems mount via a “saddle” style method (Remington shotguns) or by using the drilled and tapped holes on top of the shotgun’s receiver.
SureShell Aluminum Shotshell Carriers with Rail are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and use Mesa Tactical’s innovative rubber friction retention system to firmly and reliable hold shells in place until needed. Four, six and eight shell configurations and multiple rail lengths available.
The Integrated Rail SureShell shotshell carrier design for the Benelli M2 Tactical, Benelli M4/M1014, Benelli SuperNova and Mossberg 500/590 platforms is radically different from the side mount designs. Instead of a stamped backing plate, the shell carrier yoke is attached to a machined bracket with an integral Picatinny (MIL-STD 1913) sight rail.
The design allows the ShotShell assembly to be installed on the top of the shotgun by taking advantage of the factory tapped Picatinny (MIL-STD 1913) rail holes.
With the Benelli shotguns, the shell carrier assembly is mounted directly onto the shotgun receiver. With the Mossberg platforms, a steel mounting cleat is first installed and the shell carrier is fastened to the cleat.
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.

Top notch quality and design . Will look to Mesa tactical in the future.
Perfect fit, nice finish, smooth operation
Perfect fit onto my Super Nova. Cosmetic blemishes upon arrival which is a standard concern I have read in previous reviews. Need to update your packaging in order to get 5 Stars. Price of product is worth it, but should product should come in pristine condition for the money. Going to proudly display my sticker!!!!
I just installed the side saddle and it look great, almost like it was like it stock. Fit and finish are really good and it matches my Benelli supernova really well. It was super easy to install.
I received the shell carrier/rail for my Benelli supernova and was impressed the second I opened the box. The machining is absolutely excellent, the screws that seat it to your gun are high quality strong steal. It looks so much cooler than I expected. I liked the idea of a 4 shell carrier because it adds a little less weight and bulk to the shotgun. Additionally it shipped super fast and I live on the other side of the country from Mesa.
