Mesa Tactical Truckee Forend is Now Available for Remington 870

by Tommy Grant

No stranger to expanding the capabilities of the shotgun platform, Mesa Tactical offers its Truckee Forend for select shotguns. Originally released for the Benelli M4 and Beretta 1301 (below), the forend added M-LOK compatibility to the shotguns. Now, further expanding the line, the company adds the Remington 870 and Tac-14 to the list of compatible models.

100% made in the U.S.A., the Truckee Forend features a 6061-T6 heat-treated aircraft-grade aluminum construction. Likewise, the hard anodized finish and high-temp, glass-filled nylon endcaps help provide rugged durability. Featuring M-LOK slots running both sides and the bottom, the forend provides versatility to your Remington 870 platform for attaching lights and other accessories.

The Truckee for Remington 870 is available in three different lengths, so you get just what you need. Starting with the shortest, the 7 ½ inch model is compatible with the Mesa Tactical SureShell Carrier with Fallon Rail. However, if you require more M-LOK capacity, you can opt for either the 9- or 10 ½-inch model, but they are not compatible with the SureShell Carrier.

As with all Mesa Tactical products, the Truckee Forend has a hassle-free installation. Correspondingly, it requires no modifications to the firearm or special gunsmithing skills. Likewise, it includes a special forend nut wrench to make the job even easier.

“Few Mesa Tactical products in the last few years have generated as much excitement around the shop as the Truckee forends for the Remington 870. We are very excited to finally be offering an aluminum forend for this venerable workhorse platform. It might not be the first aluminum forend for the Remington 870, but it’s the first we’ve seen.” said Mitch Barrie, President of Mesa Tactical.

The Mesa Tactical Truckee Forend for Remington 870 and Tac-14 is available now, with MSRP of $95.00 (7 ½ inch), $105.00 (9 inch), or $115.00 (10 ½ inch). For more info, please visit MesaTactical.com.

When it comes to expanding your shotgun’s capabilities, Mesa Tactical sits comfortably on the shortlist. The company offers everything from shell carriers to stocks, rails, sling attachments, and more. Now, Mesa Tactical offers an M-LOK upgrade for your Beretta 1301 with its Truckee Forend.

Engineered and manufactured in the United States, the Truckee is constructed of 6061-T6 heat-treated aircraft-grade aluminum. Additionally, glass-filled nylon polymer end caps help to provide rugged durability. Likewise, the use of lightweight materials ensures that the Truckee won’t add undue weight to the forend of your Beretta 1301.

When installed, the Truckee provides M-LOK accessory attachment points running along both sides and the bottom. As a result, you can upgrade your shotgun with options like light mounts, vertical grips, etc. If your accessories are designed for Picatinny rails, the industry-standard M-LOK slots also accept Picatinny rail sections as well.

Featuring an easy installation process, the Truckee installs in seconds without the need for modification, a gunsmith, or gunsmithing skills. As a result, it can be just as easily removed on the bench or in the field to access the gas system. Not to mention, the forend also improves ergonomics and overall handling of your shotgun platform.

Although the Truckee has been available for the Benelli M4 since 2019, this new model is compatible with Beretta 1301. A 13-inch model is currently available for $130.00. However, a 15 ¾-inch model will be available in August of 2023 for $145.00.

“This new modern forend will meet the expectations of professional operators, and it is designed to perform under the most demanding field, competitive shooting, and tactical conditions. It was developed and designed in-house, to be the perfect complement to our product line,” says Zuly Rivera, Marketing Manager at Mesa Tactical. “We are excited to have law enforcement professionals or recreational shooters, take advantage of the enhanced ergonomics and modern features it offers.”
