SureShell® Polymer Carrier And Saddle Rail For Rem 870 W/ Mag Clamp (6-Shell, 12-GA, 20 In)
This SureShell Polymer Carrier system, available in a six shell configuration, features shell holders injection molded from glass filled polymer, secured to the receiver by a lightweight aluminum back plate with brass threaded inserts. The SureShell Polymer Carrier also includes an innovative dual rubber friction system that reliably holds shotshells in place.
The saddle rails feature Picatinny rails machined from aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum, which are mil-spec hard anodized and provide an extremely durable non-glare matte finish. The basic saddle rail design provides a robust mounting platform suitable for mounting a variety of optical sights and includes a Mesa Tactical six shell SureShell polymer shotshell carrier mounted on the left side of the receiver. This rails are manufactured in compliance with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny specifications, and no gunsmithing is required for installation. These saddle rails offer a perfect solution for adding optical sights and SureShell shotshell carriers to Remington shotguns equipped with Mesa Tactical’s LEO telescoping stock and pistol grip system.
Saddle Rails that extend the length of the shotgun are supported at the front by a barrel or magazine clamp. Full length rail systems available from Mesa Tactical, require a mounting point near the muzzle of the shotgun. On the Remington platforms, these mounting points take the form of a magazine clamp or barrel clamp. The fit between the rail and the clamp is very tight. The best installation procedure is to loosely install the clamp in its approximate location before attaching the rail at the receiver. Once the rail is firmly mounted on the receiver (or on the stock adapter for High-tube full length rails), move the clamp until the rail mounting holes are lined up and the mounting screws are started before finally tightening it into place. Use blue Loctite on all fasteners.
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.
