Advanced Technology International (ATI) has introduced a lightweight and sturdy mounting platform for the most popular types of shotguns in the form of the Talon 5-sided fore-end.
The Talon weights only 6.8 ounces and is equipped with ATI's 2-inch Dovetail rails, spaced at 45-degree increments around the fore-end. Rails can be positioned anywhere along the length of the fore-end and are coated with Loctite to provide a secure grip. The fore-end also features a built in heatshield to prevent users from accidentally touching a hot gun barrel.
The fore-end comes with a kit to that allows it to be fit onto:
-Mossberg 500/535/590/835, both 12 and 20-gauge
-Remington 870, both 12 and 20-gauge
-Winchester 1200 and 1300, both 12 and 20-gauge
*The Talon cannot replace the synthetic fore-end on the Mossberg 500A, 500B or 500C since the action bar is attached to the fore-end.
