Anyone use one? I have been looking to add a Scabbard to hold a MB590 on a plate carrier. I did locate one at Eagle but the rest all seem to be airsoft. Any ideas?

just curious, Why do you want to attach a shotgun to the back of your Plate carrier??

Have you ever hauled 8lbs of shotgun on the back of a plate carrier that has 12lbs of plates and probably another 7-10 lbs of misc gear including water while carrying your primary weapon for 12 hours? Not to mention ammo for the shotgun?

If not, you might be a little surprised how heavy it will be and how much it will decrease your mobility.

When pheasant hunting I carry a 28" shotgun / 12-16 shot birds / 50 rounds of 3" magnum bird shot / all necessary cold weather gear. We walk for many hours all day.

I have to agree with Harv. What you are describing here is not a combat or shtf loadout. Ditch the shotgun and carry more ammo for your primary and secondary.

the ONLY reason i have considered a scabbard is to mate it with a non-erblestock pack.

Just let the guy buy what he wants. there are reputable companies making them so obviously they serve some purpose.

I'm pretty sure no one here has the ability to prevent him from buying ANYTHING he wants.. And if some one comes on a discussion board and ask's about one, there most likely will be a discussion.....

I know it looks cool to strap one on...but these pieces of gear have a very limited application and targets a very small group of users. If someone asks , there going to get opinions, for or against... don't like it...go spend time somewhere else...

They are intended to carry a breaching shotgun for very short durations. They may look cool, but they aren't fun when you have to chase someone(or run from someone) and/or hop a wall-My only experience was with 12-14" breaching guns. I also only had 6 extra breaching rounds. I can't fathom carrying an 18" plus barreled shotgun just because this way.
