RCI’s XRAIL Offers up to 23 rounds of 12 Gauge Fun Without Reloading!

By Dave Dolbee published on in Gun Gear

One of the hottest accessories featured at the 2015 Media Day at the Range was the RCI-XRAIL. Whether you have a passion for dropping snow geese by the dozens, 3-Gun or just want the ultimate in shotgun firepower for home defense, the XRAIL has the capacity you always wanted.

The XRAIL differs from much of the competition in that it turns your shotgun into a high-capacity shooting system—however, it is not platform specific. This means you can use it on a Remington, Winchester, Mossberg, FNH or Benelli shotgun. The XRAIL System purchase comes with the connecting system you choose. To switch from one shotgun platform to another, one only needs to purchase a different XRAIL Connecting System. Not a gunsmith? With the XRAIL, you do not have to make a single modification to increase your capacity up to 23 rounds without he length of traditional extension tubes.XRAIL

I have shot plenty of guns with extended tubes while shooting 3-Gun or on snow geese hunts during seasons where most anything goes and the extra capacity is more than just a little fun. However, hanging the better part of a box of 12 gauge shells under the barrel is going to add weight. That’s simple physics. I talked with a couple prominent 3-Gun shooters while on the range at the 2015 SHOT Show’s Media Day at the Range and they had nothing but positive things to say about the XRAIL (from a competition standpoint). I would name drop, but did not ask permission to go on the record, but trust me when I say they are household names in 3-Gun and no, I could not perform at their speed and accuracy with the XRAIL, but I had a helluva time trying!

    What holds the barrel on when these are installed especially the integrated versions?
