Saddle Mount Picatinny Rails
Mesa Tactical Saddle Rails are 6061-T6 aluminum brackets that wrap around the top of the shotgun receiver. The factory trigger pins are replaced by an internally threaded steel pin (in the rear) and paired Chicago screws (up front), to which both sides of the saddle rail are securely bolted. The saddle rail is Type III anodized for a rugged surface finish. Our Saddle Rail is specially contoured to allow operation of a semi-automatic bolt on the right side of the receiver, so it can be installed on Remington 1100 and Remington 11-87 semi-auto shotguns as well as Remington 870 pump shotguns. The rail is notched at the rear to accommodate Scattergun/Wilson style ghost ring sights, and extends to the front of the shotgun receiver (5 inch rail), 2¾ inches past the front of the receiver (8½ inch rail), or just beyond the barrel’s magazine lug (20 inch rail). The 20 inch rails are available with or without the required Magazine Clamp or Barrel Clamp. No gunsmithing is required to install. Minor fitting of fasteners may be necessary.
