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.

Relatively easy install, but you need to remove the bolt to get to the plastic tabs holding the factory rail in place, which were quick to punch out. Other than that, it installs in front of the factory site, so nothing left to do.
Received but with wrong set of hardware and installation guide.
Ordered it, never got it.
Goes on real easy and adds capability to shotgun. Great purchase.
I recently bought this item through midway usa and am very pleased with the overall install on my supernova tactical. It was simple to use an allen key and my wrench to tap out the studs covering the screw holes and quickly get it in place. I am sure as I run more rounds through this carrier it will loosen. Currently the shells are a little tight. Only other gripe but I cleaned it up with gun oil was the condition of the carrier. It arrived in OEM packaging but the side that had contact with the paper looked rubbed and chalky. All is clean now but for such a nice part you think packing would be a little more substantial. My 10/22 mags come in something beefier. Thanks for the product. Excited to break it in. All in all took 10 minutes to install.
Received the shell carrier very quickly and installed same day. Looks great with easy to install instructions. I'm very pleased in all respects.
Read good things about it from several reviewers, so I made the purchase. It works very well and looks as though it came with the shotgun from Benelli. Top notch product. Very happy with my purchasse.
The material is sturdy and rigid. The finish looks like factory stock and is well built. My biggest concern was the forend clearance. I was relieved to find out that there was no issue whatsoever with the forend. I can have the shells facing up or down and there would be no issues everytime I cycle a shot.
Sureshell carrier with rail was easy to install on my Benelli Supernova... it is extremely well made... as if it should have come with the shotgun from the factory!
