Top Mods for Defensive Shotguns

Some top mods for defensive shotguns. Check them out!

GG&G Shotgun Sling Mount
Single-point slings are becoming more popular among those that wield shotguns as a daily tool. These attachments allow a sling to be mounted in front of the carrier, making it easier to bring the scattergun into action without getting tangled. The mount installs between the receiver and stock, and is machined of hard-coat anodized aluminum, and can also be used in traditional two-point fashion with a magazine-cap-mounted sling swivel. It's available for most Benelli, Mossberg, and Remington models. Price: $

Mesa Tactical Products Receiver Mount Shell Holder

Most sidesaddle-type shell holders are made of plastic. Mesa Tactical manufactures these from aluminum. Available in 4-, 6-, and 8-round holders for various makes and models, these are truly the upper crust of backup ammo carriers. All mounting hardware and instructions are included. Price: $60 to $80 depending on model.

Remington 870 Magazine Tube Extension

If you feel like you need more buckshot to offer your uninvited guest for dinner, get a magazine extension tube. Various lengths are available for most model shotguns, ranging in price from $40 up to $150+. This is a Parkerized steel tube with a music-wire spring, made by Remington, and marketed through Brownells.

Price: $117.

ATI Tactical Shotgun Fore-end
Constructed of lightweight glass-reinforced nylon that is specially formulated to be insensitive to temperature, this fore-end allows rails to be mounted 90 degrees around the unit for hanging lights, lasers, and other accessories on. Three rails are included. Models are available for most popular makes of shotguns. Price: $46.

Speedfeed Pistolgrip Stock
Though its biggest appeal comes from the easily accessed spare shells housed in the butt, this stock is also a straighter-line minimum-drop design that allows better recoil control for fast follow-up shots. It's ideal for use with ghost-ring sights or optics. Made from a durable poly-resin material, and is available for most shotgun models. Prices range from $66 to $130.

Trijicon Adjustable Night Sight
Utilizing Trijicon's legendary tritium-under-saphire inserts, this setup provides an edge in low-light situations. Ruggedly constructed of steel, they are fully adjustable for windage and elevation and fit most plain-barrel Remington shotguns. The front sight fits over the existing sight and is epoxied in place (epoxy included); the rear sight requires drilling and tapping the receiver. Price: $112.
