Mark Mueller of Elite Tactical Advantage (ETA) stopped into the office for some show and tell today. The ETA product line currently focuses on tactical shotgun accessories, and the flagship products are the RhinoRail and BullDozer – aftermarket accessory rails that fit Remington 870, 1100, and Mossberg 930 shotguns. Watch out for more models to come.
We were most impressed with the RhinoRail, which weighs only 1.25 pounds!
This rail can take any red dot scope or BUIS-type sight; lasers, lights, sling adapter or even extra shell carriers. When you pick it up, it is hefty, and makes your shotgun look even more ominous. The rails are CNC-machined to tight tolerances for repeatability when using sights and other bolt-ons. The RhinoRail retails for $349; the full-length BullDozer $399.
Both rails feature over 36 inches of rail on four surfaces, and are built using the new NATO Stanag 4694 specification (100% backward compatible with MilSpec/Picatinny 1913 Standards).
ETA claims the rail serves as a heat shield with dissipating fins covering the entire length of the barrel. Assembly is simple, and everything is included – there is no drilling, tapping or other gunsmithing involved. If you're smart enough to shoot a shotgun, you'll be able to install this rail.
