Mesa Tactical Truckee Forend for Benelli M4

Reno, NV — Mesa Tactical, designer and manufacturer of high quality tactical accessories and equipment for law enforcement, military and civilian shooters, today announced the availability of the new Truckee™ forend for the Benelli M4 semi-automatic shotgun. Meeting the urgent requirement for an easy way to mount weapon lights and other accessories on the Benelli M4, the new Truckee replacement forend provides industry standard M-LOK® mounting points on sides and bottom.

Machined from 6061 heat treated aluminum, the Truckee forend is sleek, rugged and lightweight. M-LOK slots accept Picatinny rail sections or specialized light mounts or vertical grips. The 8½ inch Truckee forend can be installed in seconds on any Benelli M4 shotgun; while the 11 inch version requires the removal of the Benelli M4 shotgun’s factory front sling loop. The words, “MESA TACTICAL RENO USA” are stamped onto the surface of the forend.

This is Mesa Tactical’s second foray into the forend product category, following the company’s Mohawk™ forend for the Remington Versa Max introduction in June of 2016. “The new Truckee forend was developed specifically with direct input from our customers,” said Mitch Barrie, President of Mesa Tactical further commented “This is a product that incorporates enhancements designed with the same innovation, quality and attention to detail that have made Mesa Tactical’s shotgun stocks and shell carriers industry standards among professional operators.”

“We are proud to continually deliver new and innovative additions to the popular Benelli M4 semi-automatic shotgun in order to meet the changing needs and wants of law enforcement professionals or recreational shooters. We continue to focus on innovative ideas to develop and market some of the highest quality tactical buttstock assemblies, including our LEO stock adapters and Urbino fixed pistol grip stocks for the tactical shotgun.” said Lucy Espinoza, COO of Mesa Tactical.

Like all Mesa Tactical products, the Truckee forend is 100% made in the U.S.A., available in black, and has a limited lifetime warranty. All Mesa Tactical products can be easily installed without requiring modification of the firearm or special gunsmithing skills.
