Mesa Tactical SureShell carrier for 870

Discussion in 'Tactical Shotguns' started by Mofeen, Jun 3, 2010.

  1. Does anyone have one? Can you share pics? I am trying to decide on the 4 or 6 shot version.

    How does it hold up to use as well? Do they shells stay snug enough?

    Go to and there are dozen of pictures of the Mesa Tactical Shell holders. 4rd, 6rd, 8rd and even some right side 4rd ones. You should be able to see what your wanting to.

    Yes, the shells stay secure. You will want to take them out about once a month and let the groment strip breath over night. This ensures they stay put when you put them back in.

    These are the only shell holders I use on my custom builds because I find them the best made and the most serviceable of any on the market.
  4. Thanks Aippi.

    I think I will go with the 6 shot model. Just wondering if I should get the railed version for future use? Not sure what I would need the rail for though. Decisions decisions.

    I have the 6 shell one. It's VERY solid. Holds the shells very tight too. IIRC, mesa says that the inserts that hold they shells can deform after time, but I have yet to have that happen after being loaded for about 2 years.

    If that were a problem, I've read of people replacing with small tubing found at Lowes/HD etc., but as I said, I've yet to have mine deform and shells get loose.

    I'd skip the rail. If you use the front bead, I think it'll obstruct your view.

    i don't own the mesa shell carrier but have the LEO telescopic tactical stock with recoil reducing buffer; very high quality stuff.
