This shotgun side-saddle is designed to be mounted on to your Remington 870 12-Gauge shot gun. It will hold 6 12-gauge shells. To ensure maximum durability, Mesa Tactical has machined this sidesaddle from 6061-T6 aluminum. This offer enhanced reliability and durability to ensure a long service life, even in hard use. The aluminum has been bead blasted and finished in a mil-spec hard coat anodizing. This gives the SureShell carrier a non-glare finish to minimize possible light signature.
In most situations, the extra shot shells that you choose to carry can be retained in a brass up or brass down orientation. However, brass up is more secure and less likely to fail.
Please note that due to the design of the Mesa Tactical side saddle, you must use a tactical forend that does not overlap the receiver. You can also use a factory forend that has been cut down appropriately.
