    I have not and will not and here is why.

    I want my women front heavy not my shotguns.

    It is more for Mr. Murphy to screw with and get me killed in a gun fight. He will.

    If you need that many shotgun shells for a fight, you should have been using a rifle to begin with.

    I would lead them all into a convenient blind alley where no more than two cavalry bears can run shoulder-to-shoulder. I would take the leading bears down, causing a massive pile up of the bears/cavalrymen behind them.

    I would then mow down the piled up bears/cavalrymen at my leisure (okay, quick tactical reloads included).

    It's the man and the tactics, not the weapon -- software over hardware.

    Standard anti-cavalry tactic: Shoot the mounts.......which is why cavalry stopped being effective in large groups past 1860, it just took another 80 years to really catch on.
    They still used cavalry up to WW2 but mostly for scouting/hit and run, not mass formations.

    Back to the X Rail. I saw one of these in action at the Mi3Gun Championship match last year. It was front heavy, and it held some 22+ rounds, and you could STILL reload with speed sticks when it went dry.

    The guy rocking the X-Rail was going target to target like he was shooting a bb gun. The weight absorbs a LOT of recoil, allowing you to get target transition MUCH faster.

    For shooting: FANTASTIC. I just wouldn't want to carry it all day.

    It's an impressive piece of engineering on the end of a semi auto shotgun, for SURE!!

    Let's face it, most of that kind of stuff is made for shooting game commandos. :wavey:

    The weight of all those shells + the weight of that contraption hanging off the front of my shotgun? No thanks.

    Neat idea, though.

    Also it requires you have a 26" barrel. Not really my idea of "tactical" at all. The compact version 14+1 still requires a 22" barrel.

    It is just a thread here on GT about a shotgun magazine.

    Ill pass. Besides if I ever needed that many rounds the saiga would be better suited with a drum mag

    ^^^Very true. You could take the $700 it costs and buy two more pump shotguns and just have them on slings. Now that's tactical

    I think it would be great for the static shooters....they don't have to worry about moving or having weapons' handling skills anyway. They can just brace themselves against the stall and have at it.

    Might be cool for competition, but the rail is more than I paid for my shotgun. Ouch.
