When it comes to 3-Gun competitions and competitive shotgun shooting most all competitors are accurate. What can make or break someone’s score is their ability and speed in reloading. A company called Stageberner has come out with a product to speed up everyone’s reload times 2 shells at a time.
The way the product works is you install a piece on the trigger guard of your shotgun that holds 2 shotgun shells in the ready position to be easily stroked into your magazine tube.
A demo of the product can be seen below in this YouTube video from Keith Garcia.
The MSRP of the Stageberner is currently set at $59.95 with it being available for a handful of shotgun models at the moment. Right now 4 different shotgun models are available with 2 more slated for availability within the month.
- Beneli M2 (Available)
- Beretta 1301 (August 5th)
- Stoeger models (August 5th)
- Mossberg JM Pro (August 5th)
- FNH models (expected soon; in August)
- Remington Versamax (expected soon; in August)
Keith Garcia does a great job of explaining how to use the Stageberner, but here is a deeper explanation from the company elaborating as to how you can install it.
You can choose to mount your StageBerner using only the included 2 sided adhesion or with the added security of a mounting screw. If you choose to mount using a mounting screw, trigger guards that are metal will be required to be drilled and tapped. We suggest having a gunsmith do this for you. However, If you want to do this yourself, we offer a bit, tap and tap wrench at a great price point when you are ordering your StageBerner, in a drop down menu, or you can use your own. We also offer more double stick tape at a great price if you like.
The fluid ability with which Keith is able to reload in the demo video is pretty impressive. What does the TFB nation think?…
