Imagine being able to shoot 23 rounds of 00 buck downrange without need of a reload. That’s right, 207 .33-caliber lead balls heading toward your targets without having to stuff more high-brass shells in the tube. XRAIL-fitted shotguns with their decided advantage of mucho rounds in the tube have dominated the shotgun portion of many a three-gun match—but does it have a place in law enforcement, the military, and corrections?
The XRAIL is a rotating set of four magazine tubes that are spring-driven. All loading is done through the traditional loading port into the tube magazine. You begin by loading the tube until capacity (seven rounds in the 14-round Remington 870 I tested; the 14 rounds with the XRAIL system, plus one in the chamber makes for 15 shots). You then rotate the XRAIL one click until the next tube is lined up. Load three or more shells until it’s full then rotate and repeat until all four tube sections are full.
