Whether you’re a hunter or target shooter, odds are you’re always looking for ways to improve your shotgun. Tacstar has a new aftermarket accessory out that not only helps you reload faster but also allows you to mount optics to your gun. It’s the Tacstar Rail Mount/Sidesaddle, a sidesaddle shotshell holder attached to a Picatinny rail.
The new Rail Mount/Sidesaddle accessory is simple to install, requiring no gunsmithing, and has a rigid frame made of durable billet aluminum. For longevity as well as aesthetics it has a no-glare anodized finish; the fact that it’s coated for no-glare makes it a better choice for hunters because there’s no need for concern about light shining off the material. The sidesaddle holds six shotshells firmly in place so you can be confident they won’t slip free and the rail allows you to mount a number of items. The rail is designed to be low-profile and does not obstruct the shotgun’s bead.
This lightweight tactical accessory is available for the Mossberg 500 and 590 and Remington 870, 1100, and 11-87. Take a look online at http://www.tacstar.com/home/railmountsidesaddle.php. MSRP $89.98.
