Mesa Tactical SureShell Benelli M4 Side Saddle & Picatinny Rail (8-Shell, 12-GA, 5 1/2 in)
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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Oh, man!! I just got this the other day and slapped it on my M4. I ran 100 rounds through it today at the range, and it continued to hold the shells correctly in place with the brass down.
Benelli m4 rail
Fits perfectly when you use the Benelli screws. Don't use screws included with the package. Order Loctite from Amazon site for a secure longterm fit. Fits better than other plastic side saddles on the market. If at all possible, you never want to replace the m4 pin with a screw, as required by other saddles on the market. Replacing pin will also interfere with long term trigger operations of weapon. I would recommend this product to a friend.
Mesa Tactical Benelli m4
Outstanding l SureShell Carrier and Rail for Benelli M4. Stays in place with no fear of scratching the weapon. The problem related to the screws not being right for the Benelli M4 seems to have been resolved as mine fit tight and hold the mount on the weapon exceptionally well. The mount with eight shells in place does not get in the way of either hand when using the weapon.
Benelli m4 rail system
If you purchase this item, you should know that ten screws attach the shell holders to the rail itself. I located the rail to the gun but not those ten screws, and after 90 or so rounds, the shell holder was wobbly and becoming detached. My advice: Loctite those screws firmly and not just the rail screws themselves.
A great addition to the Benelli M4
A great addition to the Benelli M4. Easy installation, remove the factory rail, and drop this onto the top of the receiver. Aluminum construction adds cost but also increases reliability. The side saddle uses a nylon tube to hold the shells in-place and comes with a replacement tube if the first one wears out. The instruction sheet I received advised taking the shells out of the carrier when not using the weapon, so that might diminish its usefulness for Shotguns that stay loaded. All in all, an excellent addition to the Benelli M4.
Benelli m4 rail is a Great addition!
The hardest part about installation was removing the old rail screws, which was pretty easy. Holds shells securely without slip.
Benelli m4 shell carrier What's not to like?
Quick and easy to install...looks and works like it's original Benelli factory work. Anyone using the M4 for defensive purposes should consider this "essential equipment."
A great addition to the M4
Expensive, but I love it for my Benelli m4...easy to install, looks good, and fits all my buckshot. If you have extra cash to spend after the crazy cost of an m4, you might as well get this too.
A functional piece of solid construction. A perfect addition to any shotgun!
