Can't go wrong with a TacStar side saddle, just make sure to loc tite the screws.

I've got them on my Mossberg 500 and 590, no complaints.

I am considering a speed feed stock instead of a side saddle or butt stock shell holder which seem to get in my way.

Guess I didn't get to ya quick enough. Oh well.... When you put it on don't over tighten the allen bolt in back, you can squeeze your receiver and cause binding and damage. Just lightly snug it up and put on a drop of clear finger polish before you start to help it hold.

I've had a side saddle on my Winchester 1300 Defender seems like since I bought the gun 17 years ago. I find it very handy so I can carry a variety of ammo with me. It is nice to have slugs and/or buckshot loaded in the magazine in case of bears and be able to quickly grab a bird shot if I get hungry for grouse.

I've also got a Knoxx (Blackhawk I believe now) spec-ops recoil reduction stock, a Surefire forend with integrated light and Scattergun Technologies ghost ring sights.

I like having the Side Saddle on my Mossberg 500A. I have had it on there for over 15 years.

Used a saddle on my Winchester Defender, but with my Stoeger Coach its a butt cuff that works quite nicely......Extra ammo with any shottie is essential. But with a double, you better have it, and know how to reload on the fly! I know, pumps are faster, but they are also longer and heavier. My Coach is handy in close, light, and packs two sure quick shots. Four inches longer than the "sawed off" pumps that take all the federal paperwork and six months wait. Just not as much ammo handy should a situation like "No Country for Old Men" presents itself....

Yours in the Cause,

Had a Tacstar at one point.

These days, better quality exists, I'd go with a Mesa or a Vang Comp (velcro) model.

I have a neoprene sleeve on the buttstock of my Mossberg 500 and a sidesaddle. I replaced the synthetic stock with a wood one. The added weight of 9 shells plus the woodstock makes the gun very easy on the shoulder. I have 6 - 00 buck shells in the gun, 5 - 00 buck shells in the buttstock holder, and 4 - 2 3/4" s in the sidesaddle. Overkill for most but again I appreciate the weight of the gun most.

I used to have my Mossberg 500 setup the same way. Minus the wood stock. Mine has the OEM synthetic furniture.

Anyways, are they worth it? And if so, show me some of your guys set ups.
i would go with velcro cards instead. once a side saddle is empty you have to manually refill it. with the cards you rip off the empty one and slap a fresh one on.

i prefer to keep my defensive shotguns as light as possible, and simply don't like the side saddle setup. i have a Wilson +2 mag extension on my 870P for added rounds. i do have several shotshell belt holders (Bruce Nelson Combat Leather, G. Wm. Davis) that i have high regard for.

It also doesn't take much for me to visualize a side saddle causing a problem in, a doorway for instance, unless a little extra thought (at zero-dark-thirty) is exercised.
What would you gain by grabbing a shotgun by the receiver?

What problem do you see a side saddle causing in a doorway?

Do you plan on sleeping in the belt or putting it on real fast if needed?

If you want to use a hard mounted sidesaddle,
GG&G has a very high quality version available for most guns.
