Mesa Tactical SureShell Polymer Carrier for Mossberg 500/590 and Maverick 88 (6-Shell, 12-GA)
This Mesa Tactical 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 Mesa Tactical 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.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Best Side Saddle for Mossberg 500
I bought this carrier for an Mossberg 500home defense gun. It was easy to install and fits well. Read the instructions carefully, but only everyday workbench tools were needed. It holds exceptionally tight to the shotshells at first - which is a good thing!
I mounted this on a Mossberg 590A1 in very little time. The directions that come with it are nearly useless, but found a very short and simple YouTube video that explained it. The shells are held pretty tight initially, so you have to pull fairly hard to get them out (as opposed to what I would expect from an elastic type carrier). I suspect will loosen a bit over time. The quality and fit/finish are excellent.

A Perfect Mossberg 590A1 side saddle
Perfect fit for my Mossberg 590A1. Installation was fast and simple. I'm guessing it took no more than ten minutes to install.
Maverick 88 side saddle fit perfectly
Excellent product. Perfect fit on my Maverick 88 . Perfect shell retention!
maverick 88 side saddle
A tremendous addition to any tactical shotgun. The elastomer retention system is rock solid and worries free. I've put these on Mossberg and Remingtons. Installation is easy, and the results are impressive.
Mesa Tactical's products are the best
I was previously using the Mesa Tactical side saddle with an integral rail on my 590A1. I love the rail but needed to move to lower sights. Here was the perfect resolution. This side saddle allows you to carry six shells, brass up or brass down, on the side of your gun. Easy to install and tools needed are included, and even has rubber pads to protect the finish of your weapon. Both the finish of the piece are the first rate. You will not be disappointed. And Mountsplus servise was top notch and fast. I will be back for more shotgun accessories.
