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.

This side saddle with rail is an outstanding accessory for my Benelli Supernova. It fits great and looks great too! Great product!
I really appreciate the build quality and ease of installation of this shell carrier. It looks great as well but I found that if you hold the pump far back, towards the trigger, and you have the 2 farthest (closest to barrel end) loaded with shells, your hand will hit the shell (and it hurts). The solution I found is to load the shells upside down from the bottom of the carrier.
I haven't had the chance to install this yet but the overall fit and finish is second to none. Mesa Tactical builds exceptional products.
Great product. Well made and easy to install. Fits perfectly on my Benelli Supernova without any modification to the for end. Shells are held securely yet easy to remove.
I just received the Sureshell Carrier and Rail for the Benelli Supernova and am very impressed. The mount is solid and was easy to install. I like the fact that it comes with two shell retention shims (elastomer rubber that runs along the edge of the shell) to adjust retention strength. A note on installing the setup on a pistol-grip Supernova, you'll need to loosen the stock bolt in order to give yourself enough room to pull the trigger assembly out and access and remove the mounting hole plugs.
There are other choice's but Sureshell made of aluminum and the Chicago Screw are very high Quality. This is my 3rd set.
Very solid and integrates into the look of the gun like it was there the whole time.
I have ordered three of these. I have no problem with this side saddle. I have taken it into competition and it always did what I wanted it to do. GREAT product.
No issues, perfect fit & nice addition to my Benelli Supernova Tactical shotgun. Went from 8+1 (2 3/4 shell) to now 14+1 carry capacity on the gun.
