Sidearmor??

Recommended Posts

The Sidearmor rails are being marketed by Tactical Shotgun Solutions: http://tacticalshotgun.solutions/home.php I don't know if it's the same company, a new company that bought the tooling, or just a split-off from Sidearmor since it appears they're still making holsters.

 

I've got a Sidearmor version of the 6 round QD holder that mounts to their standard replacement rail. It appears the TSS versions are the same as the old Sidearmor versions.

Anyone running one?

 

I recently purchased the Sidearmor "Entry" model (apparently TSS model 30151) with 8 rnd shell holder. IMO, an excellent piece, beautifully made. Others here have objected to the weight, but it is what it is and hasnt been an issue for me.

My husband and I own the shotgun rail company Tactical Shotgun Solutions/Asgard Defense. We sold the Sidearmor holster portion of the company and kept the rails but had to rename the company. It's been a challenge to redirect people to our new website. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Quality product for sure. Only problem I have is figuring out the somewhat puzzle like method to line them up to slide on/off. Perhaps a simple arrow on each piece could be a new feature request :) Otherwise an awesome product great finish, solid attachment, light weight

Glad I saw this thread and hence found this company. A really solid, classy looking product, to enhance my H20.

I just ordered the 6 shell QD holder and rail.;)

It would not be hard to incorporate something like that. We will do that with our next run of parts. Thanks!

Received mine today. It is a beautiful piece. Someone had a Da Vinci moment when they designed this system.;)

 

 

Thanks! I will pass the word along to my husband. He's the genius behind the designs.

Curious if anyone has some pics of the 8 or 6 mounted on their M4?

 

Any issues?

 

How does it compare to Mesa Tactical?

The Sidearmor is a quality piece. The only downsides (small) are that it can add weight

when loaded up with 8 shells, the pic rail is kinda sharp, and it takes practice sliding it on

under stress.

I just ordered an 8 rounder and looking forward to trying it. My mesa tacticals I have work, but depends on the WX (hot or cold) and some areas of the mesa allow the shells in easily others take work.

You will not have this issue with the Tactical Shotgun Solutions (formerly Sidearmor) parts. They are beautifully machined and well made. I had one for a while and if you want to use a solid sidesaddle then I think it is a good choice.

It DOES make the gun heavier but that may or may not be a factor depending on your POU.

I got the 8 round short rail for my M4 and I'm having a hard time getting the shells in and out, is there a break in period or am I doing something wrong?

I have noticed some shells are tighter than others.

i dont think plastic hulls will break in the aluminum carriers

but the shells get easier to remove or insert after

several tries. So either the metal gets smoother or the

shell gets worn down a little?

My Federal tactical slugs are very difficult to get in and out.

 

My plastic orange dummy rounds took a gunsmith hammer to get out, I got two in and it took a couple of minutes to get them out.

 

I'm going to try some of my other rounds, buckshot etc.

 

Going to a shotgun course and not being able to easily get the rounds in and out of the side saddle for a two day course is not going to be fun.
