This product by Mesa Tactical offers a pull stock of shorter length that is commonly known as an “Urbino”. This type of stock is designed for Mossberg, Remington, and Benelli shotguns. The Urbino stock is quite popular with law enforcement officials in particular because the pull is shorter. This makes it easier to use when wearing armor or large coats as the bulk will not interfere with the shorter reach.
Crafted from molded glass-filled nylon, the Urbino Tactical stock is made for pistol-grip shotguns. The tactical length of 12 ½” of pull also includes the optional Limbsaver butt pad, soft urethane rubber grip, a variety of flexible sling mounting options as well as the optional cheek riser.
This particular product was created out of the great demand for a stock with a shorter pull. This is particular true of the Mossberg 930 which benefits greatly from a shorter stock, plus the fact that there are no other shorter stocks available currently. The difficulties in designed the new stock were fairly easy save for the recoil system. Because of the original factory design, it was necessary to modify the recoil system in order for the new Urbino Tactical stock to work properly.
All necessary hardware is included in the kit and there is no gunsmithing required to add the new stock. The kit itself comes with the following components;
Buttstock Armature: This supports three other components, the cheekpiece, buttplate, and grip sleeve. The armature is secured to the receiver of the shotgun with the other components attached to the device. With a 12 ½” length of pull, the glass-filled nylon armature stock offers a considerably shorter pull for the recommended shotguns. The kit itself includes shorted recoil tube, spring, and recoil tube removal device.
Pistol Grip Sleeve: Crafted from a softer rubber-like material, this provides a cushioned grip when firing the shotgun.
Standard Buttpad: Crafted from hard rubber, the buttpad may be molded or glued to the plastic buttplate. However, it may also be connected the same way as the Benelli M2 buttpad if so desired. This features snap fastener grooves that are on the rubber itself.
