Installed rail on my Remington 870 Police. The Mesa Tactical Shotgun Receiver Mount Picatinny Rail is a 1-piece component which gives you the ability to mount red dot or optic sight on your shotgun. Also, there ghost ring sights that can be installed to help with your aim and accuracy as a shooter. The model number of this Picatinny rail is MIL-STD 1913 and it is recommended for use with three major shotgun brands: Mossberg, Benelli, and Remington.

Very nice setup from jdinny from Remington 870 Forum.
What is shotgun sidesaddle and why you need it?
A shotgun sidesaddle is a convenient accessory for shotgun owners because it gives them the ability to carry more ammunition right on their weapon. That way, they don’t have to put down their weapon to go looking for more ammunition inside a bag or something. They can just take a shotshell right off the sidesaddle that is attached to their shotgun, load the shotshell into the chamber and then fire away. This saves them quite a bit of time in the reloading process because they don’t have to go far to get more ammunition for their weapon, since the shotshells are stored right there on the weapon itself. If you are a soldier on the battlefield, a law enforcement officer, or just somebody who needs to be able to reload quickly, the shotgun sidesaddle is an invaluable necessity that you must own.
The Mesa Tactical Magazine/Barrel Clamp for tactical shotguns is a two-piece clamp made of 6061-T6 aluminum which is lightweight and sturdy. The Mil-spec Type 3 hardcoat is anodized to withstand hard use.
So, what is the purpose of the barrel/magazine clamp? It holds the magazine extension more securely to protect it from damage in case of bumps. Hits are very common when you actually use your shotgun for hunting, training or home defense. Just remember that if you hit something with your magazine extension and it brakes, then the spring, follower and all the ammo will just fall out of the magazine tube. If the magazine tube nut stays in place, then you will be able to put your shotgun loading rounds into a chamber. But if the magazine extension and magazine tube are broken, the barrel will not stay in place while making the shotgun useless.

Mesa Tactical Urbino Tactical Stock System and Accessory Review
Thanks to Rutsen for this review and photo. More detailed review is coming soon.
We recently obtained the Urbino Tactical Stock System with a Sureshell Shotshell Carrier. We installed the Urbino Tactiacl Stock System in about 15 minutes, and I am no gunsmith. A screwdriver is about all that is needed to make the change. We installed it with the single point adapter mount since I like the Magpul single point sling.
There is an interesting discussion on Remington 870 Forum. jdinny posted pics of his Remington 870 with ATI AR-15 Scorpion Recoil Pistol grip on Mesa Tactical LEO Stock:
