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 new 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, while a second version, which is nearly identical to the basic version, also includes a Mesa Tactical six shell SureShell polymer shotshell carrier mounted on the left side of the receiver. Both versions are manufactured in compliance with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny specifications, and no gunsmithing is required for installation. These new saddle rails offer a perfect solution for adding optical sights and SureShell shotshell carriers to Remington shotguns equipped with Mesa Tactical’s new LEO telescoping stock and pistol grip system.
The principle difference between one model of SureShell and another, aside from capacity, is the light-weight aluminum backing plate, which is designed to mount the carrier assembly on a particular model of shotgun. Side-mount SureShell shotshell carriers for Mossberg , Remington and Benelli M1 shotguns use the trigger group pin holes to secure the assemblies to the weapon; the Benelli M2 Tactical, Benelli M4/M1014, Benelli SuperNova Tactical and some Mossberg 500/590 versions take advantage of the factory-tapped rail mounting holes in the tops of these shotguns and include integrated Pictanny optics mounting rails; another version with an integrated rail is the saddle-mount design for Remington.
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.

Easy install, rugged quality craftsmanship, Made in America. This product is a win all around. Great Job to the folks at Mesa
It was easy to install, looks good, and holds the shells securely. Just what I wanted.
Instructions were not overly clear and I am a little disappointed that ill have to file the end of the female pin to get it to fit. I will probably return this and get one that fits where I dont have to do any filing etc.
In the time it took to have a cup of coffee, this was installed. Straight forward and now have 6 shells of 00 at the ready. Just be sure to remove both small clips from the trigger assembly to allow the Chicago screws and fasteners to fit.
The fittings provided with the Shell Carrier would not fit my Remington 870 Marine Magnum TAC-14. The fittings were oversize by 1 to 3 thousandths of an inch. I have sent you an e-mail describing this problem
does NOT fit a tac-13
Great fit and finish, very well thought out. I just wish the screw quality was better. Two of them have a tiny bit too much coating and hex head driver's don't fit great but I can still assemble and disassemble everything just fine. I would still buy it again.
Installation was easy, however the screws to mount the carrier are poorly threaded so it couldn't be properly fastened. I'm waiting to hear back from Mesa about replacement screws.
Very well-made shell carrier. I followed YouTube instructions to install it and it was very straight forward and easy. Highly recommend this item.
