SureShell Carrier and Rail for Kel-Tec KSG (6-Shell, 12-GA, Both Sides)

Mesa Tactical SureShell Aluminum Shotshell Carriers with Rail combine a shell carrier with a MIL-STD-1913 (NATO STANAG 4694) Picatinny rail that accepts optical, sights, lasers or accessories. These shotshell carrier/rail systems mount via a “saddle” style method (Remington shotguns) or by using the drilled and tapped holes on top of the shotgun’s receiver.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The SureShell carrier system for the Kel-Tec KSG comprises a replacement anodized aluminum Picatinny optics rail which supports one or two machined shell carrier yokes. Small aluminum flanges on either side of the main rail can accept additional lengths of Picatinny rail to support weapon lights or targeting lasers (rail not included). A pair of unique steel recoil blocks featuring angled set screws ensure the rail assembly is securely mounted to the shotgun. SureShell carriers for the Kel-Tec KSG feature four- or six-shell yokes, on the left side or right side or both sides. A replacement Picatinny rail without SureShell yokes is also available.

SureShell Aluminum Shotshell Carriers with Rail are machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and use Mesa Tactical’s innovative rubber friction retention system to firmly and reliable hold shells in place until needed. Four, six and eight shell configurations and multiple rail lengths available. 

SYSTEM CONCEPT

  • Aluminum SureShell Carrier with Integrated Picatinny Rail

    SureShell Carriers with Integrated Rails feature a MIL-STD-1913 (NATO STANAG 4694) Picatinny sight rail along the top, and a four-, six- or eight-shot SureShell aluminum shotshell carrier yoke on the left side of the receiver. The rail is notched at the rear to accommodate Scattergun/Wilson style ghost ring sights. SureShell shotshell carriers are assemblies comprising an aluminum yoke and backing plate and a Santoprene® elastomer tube. The yoke features four to eight vertical bores .700” or .810” in diameter to accept 12-gauge shotgun shells. The shells are securely retained by the elastomer tube interfering with the bores. In many cases, shells can be confidently retained in a brass down as well as a brass up configuration, though brass up is most secure.

  • Santoprene® Elastomer

    The elastomer used to interfere with the shell bores and thus retain the shells in the SureShell shotshell carrier is made of tough Santoprene thermoplastic. We are required to publish the following message to comply with California’s Proposition 65: 

    WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

    • Elastomer Stiffnes

      SureShell carriers are assembled at the factory with a black Santoprene elastomer tibe with a shore value, or stiffness, of A64. This has proven to be optimal for most customers and in most situations. However, some customers require a stiffer elastomer and for those operators we have included an alternative white elastomer tube with a shore value of A73. The black elastomer tube can be swapped for the white one if tighter shell retention is required.

OTHER TYPES OF SURESHELL CARRIERS

  • Adapter Mount SureShell Aluminum Carrier

    The Adapter Mount SureShell shotshell carrier is designed to be used with shotguns already equipped with the Mesa Tactical High-tube or LEO Telescoping Stock Adapter. If you do not already have a Mesa Tactical Telescoping Stock Adapter system installed on your shotgun, this carrier cannot be used. The other Mesa Tactical SureShell carriers described in this guide can be fitted to shotgun receivers without the stock adapter installed. 

  • Side Mount SureShell Shotshell Carriers

    Machined from 6061-T6 hard anodized aircraft aluminum, the shell holders incorporate an entirely new internal elastomer shell retention system that eliminates the need for the flexible  plastic shell retainers used on conventional shell holders. A unique arrangement of threaded  fasteners secures the shell holder to the shotgun receiver without the risk of stripping threads in  the aluminum bracket. The Shell Holders will be available in four-shell, six-shell and eight-shell versions. Four shell versions will be available for mounting on the right side of the shotgun receiver, while all versions will fit on the left side. SureShell shotshell carriers are available in three configurations: four-shell, six-shell and eight-shell. The six-shell and eight-shell configurations can be installed on the left side of the receiver, while the four-shell carriers can be installed on either side of the receiver. Carriers can also be installed pointed back toward the stock.

  • Stock Mount Shell Carriers 

    These shell carriers mount to the sides of standard M4 SOPMOD buttstocks, to the Urbino Tactical stock cheek riser, or Benelli pistol grip fixed stock (does not fit Benelli M4 stock or Urbino Tactical stock).

SPECIFICATIONS

Forend Compatibility

Factory shotgun forends, except “tactical” forends, often feature significantreceiver overlap when the bolt is pulled back. These forends will  need to be cut down or replaced with aftermarket “tactical” forends to be used with some SureShell shotshell carriers. Before you install a SureShell shotshell carrier, measure your forend’s receiver overlap and compare it to the furthest forward point of the shotshell carrier. Then cut any potential overlap or interference off the end of theforend with a miter saw or a rotary arm saw for a perfect fit.

 SURESHELL FOR KEL-TEC KSG

Kel-Tec KSG

Aluminum tabs on each side of the SureShell Carrier and Rail for the Kel-Tec KSG can accept lengths of Picatinny accessory rail (available separately) for the mounting of  weapon lights and lasers.

The KSG’s factory rail is attached to two mount pillars, front and back, with an M4 metric bolt at each end. The SureShell Carrier and Rail for the Kel-Tec KSG mounting system is slightly different. Once the factory rail is removed, a steel recoil block is installed on each of the mount pillars. In addition to a hole for a replacement M2 bolt, each recoil block also features a threaded hole at a 45° angle that accepts a set screw that is tightened into the mounting pillar. The aluminum Sureshell and rail assembly is then fastened to the recoil blocks with four screws.

This arrangement is designed to provide a robust and secure mounting method for the loaded SureShell carrier, even under heavy recoil.

No other shell carrier mounting method is as secure or looks as good. No gunsmithing is required to install the SureShell Carrier with Integrated Rail, except for optional forend alterations as described above. Picatinny Rails are also available without the shell carriers. Click Here

Optional Accessories

Small aluminum flanges on either side of the main rail can accept additional lengths of Picatinny rail to support weapon lights or targeting lasers, and Adapter Mount Hook Loop and Sling Loops.
