M1s M2s and M4s ! Finally, I can use my M1 with a thick coat in winter :woohoo:
Here's the press release that Mesa put up on their website:

January 19, 2010, Las Vegas, NV — Mesa Tactical, a Costa Mesa, CA manufacturer of professional grade tactical shotgun accessories, today introduced a line of rugged, comfortable pistol grip stocks for the Benelli M1, Benelli M2, Benelli M4, Remington 870 and Remington semi-automatic tactical shotguns. Called the Urbino Tactical Stock system, the stocks were developed based on the specific needs of law enforcement and military professionals.

Injection-molded in glass-filled nylon, the stocks feature a “tactical”12˝ inch length of pull (LoP) for enhanced weapon control, especially with body armor; optional field-adjustable cheek riser to provide improved cheek weld when used with optics; optional Limbsaver® butt pad for greater shooting comfort, especially during long training or certification courses; shock-absorbing rubber grip sleeve to reduce shooter fatigue; and a variety of standard and proprietary sling mounting options.

The Urbino Tactical Stock takes many of its design cues from the Benelli factory tactical stocks. “But the Benelli stock was a point of departure for us,” says Mitch Barrie, president of Mesa Tactical and the primary developer of the Urbino Tactical Stock. “We thought it was the most comfortable stock for tactical shotguns, but like all factory stocks it was too long for tactical applications. Our law enforcement and military customers urgently needed a stock with a reduced LoP. They were also clamoring for a stock for the Benelli M4, which is beginning to see wide adoption by law enforcement special weapons teams.”

The Benelli M4 semi-automatic shotgun has been adopted by the US Army as well as the US Marines, and is rapidly appearing in American law enforcement arsenals. “For some reason,” continued Barrie, “the Benelli M4, while a terrific shooting platform, is something of an orphan when it comes to aftermarket stocks. Our law enforcement customers were very excited to learn we were not only working on a shorter stock, but that we were supporting the Benelli M4 right out of the gate.”

A prototype Urbino Tactical Stock for the Benelli M4 has been undergoing rigorous testing with a major west coast police department during the winter of 2009-2010, and has been receiving rave reviews from test participants. “Apparently,” says Barrie, “it’s just what the doctor ordered. We are very excited to be bringing this innovative design to market.”

The Urbino Tactical Stock should begin shipping in April 2010. Platforms supported will be the Remington 870, Remington 1100, Remington 11-87, Benelli M1, Benelli M2 and Benelli M4 (all 12-gauge). Depending on options including cheek riser, Limbsaver butt pad and sling swivels, preliminary retail pricing is anticipated to be from $160.00 to $325.00.

Mesa Tactical also manufactures a wide variety of other accessories for tactical shotguns, including: various stock adapters, AR-15 style telescoping stock kits with, or without, hydraulic recoil buffers, Picatinny optical sight rails, barrel and magazine clamps for mounting flashlights, rails, slings, and additional hook and loop sling mounting hardware.

Mesa Tactical is exhibiting at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas in booth #20210. For more information contact Mitch Barrie at 949-642-3337, or sales@mesatactical.com; or visit Mesa Tactical’s website at www.mesatactical.com.

I don't see why they didn't just make an adjustable/collapsible one.
You know, like the factory ones that go for $700.

They are working on a collapsable one, but there's probably a reason that they're so expensive. Be glad that somebody's finally making one with a shorter LOP at all. :cool:

Benelli will sell their collapsable stock for $150....if you are an LEO and have something on Dept. letter head saying that you need it for work.

OK, well for many of us, that would be a lie. Thanks for the info though. Are you a LEO yourself? Your profile is rather sparse.

No on LEO. I wanted a stock and called Benelli (and didn't think $700 was a fair price). I'm not sure why they don't want to sell the stocks to the general public....but there's a lot that I don't understand.

I have a Mesa LEO Tactical stock fitted to my Mossberg 590. This is a finely crafted piece of equipment. This is a home defense weapon for rapid stock adjustment that is utilized by the fairer sex, as well as the knuckle dragging members of the household.

Functions perfectly.

I'm surprised they didn't make one for the Benelli SNT.
