TacStar’s Shotgun Rail Mount:

When a shotgun is sent to one of the custom shops that enhances combat shotguns, among the operations usually carried out are installing a ghost ring sight and adding a sidesaddle shell carrier. TacStar offers an inexpensive way to add both of these features with the Shotgun Rail Mount with Sidesaddle.

Lightweight—only 13 ounces—and fabricated of aluminum, the Rail Mount straddles both sides of the shotgun’s receiver for added rigidity. A ghost ring sight can be added to the rail or even a mini red dot, but the rail is low enough that a front bead sight may still be used on the shotgun. No gunsmithing is needed for installation, and everything you will need is included in the package.

Currently, the Shotgun Rail Mount with Sidesaddle is available for the Remington 870, 1100 and 11-87, as well as Mossberg’s 12-gauge 500, 590 and Maverick 88 shotguns. That’s a lot of shotguns that can be quickly upgraded with this kit.
