This short side-scabbard will mount to the sides of packs, and is a great way to carry a compact shotgun or a flyrod, in addition to whatever you're carrying in the main scabbard. The A1SS attaches to standard MOLLE/PALS-compatible webbing, and can also be clipped into the Control Clips in many of the larger scabbards on Eberlestock tactical packs. Used this way, you can put both a shotgun and a rod tube or a tripod into the main scabbard, and keep them from clanking together. Or, if you're a tactical operator, this is a great way to carry an entry gun or other tactical shotgun in addition to all of the other stuff that you're carrying.
If you have a longer shotgun, choose the A2SS Scabbard. And for any shotgun with external round holders, etc., such as those often used in 3-gun competitions, we'd recommend the A2LS.

Works well, basic scabbard, with Eberlestock quality
Had my reservations on getting this with concerns about how well it would retain a short shotgun while mounted on the side of a small, light speed pack(also eberlestock). Well i put it through the paces climbing, hiking and jogging. It held perfectly. There's a top available too(i believe) to cover a buttstock- for complete secure hold. My mossberg 500 draws very nicely over my shoulder from it but i have to finesse it back it due to its nasty claw-like breecher muzzle.
I bought this thing to ride on the side of my gunslinger which was already stuffed full. It kept a mossberg 500 secured within easy reach over my shoulder for a moments notice for grouse or any possible threat found on the trail.
Great quality I am very pleased.
