Adaptive Tactical’s New Shotshell Carrier

Adaptive Tactical

Adaptive Tactical is in the process of launching a series of shotshell storage accessories. The company opened the line with the new Receiver Mounted Shell Carrier.

The Receiver Mounted Shell Carrier, or RMSC, is a non-permanent attachment to the side of your Mossberg or Remington shotgun receiver. It is made from a non-glare, flexible synthetic rubber that is designed to withstand abuse for years of use. It uses a specially designed mounting plate that closely hugs the shotgun’s shape.

The RMSC holds six shells in an up or down position.

As I mentioned, these shotshell carriers are designed for both Mossberg and Remington shotguns. The specific models they will fit are:

  • Mossberg 500
  • Mossberg 590
  • Mossberg/Maverick 88
  • Remington 870
  • Remington 1100
  • Remington 11-87

The carriers, regardless of model, are exactly 6.75″ long and weigh 5.3 ounces without any shells. The suggested retail price of these shotshell carriers is $39.99.

If you are not familiar with the company, Adaptive Tactical is a firearms accessory manufacturer based in Idaho. The company makes a wide range of shotgun products including kits that allow you to convert your tube fed shotgun into gun fed by a detachable box magazine. The company also makes a range of barrels for the 10/22 line of guns including the takedown and Charger models.

    Just a small question: do they actually make any shell holders that hold them only in the up position? It seems to me that any hole designed to hug a shell would do so either up or down…

    Researching shotgun accessories this weekend, I gotta say I was disappointed. Laser scope streamlined with the tube magazine? Found pics, but nothing on the market. Raptor grip for a semi-auto? Nope. Seems there are unfilled niches in the market.
