Aridus Industries Universal Q-DC

Aridus Industries is still in the process of crowdfunding the production of their Q-DC, a quick detach shell carrier for shotguns. None of the major crowdfunding sites would accept their project because it is a gun part so they are pre-selling product at a discount on their own in order to reach their goals. They also just released a new product for pre-sale that might just make reaching their goal easier.

The Universal Q-DC is base plate unit designed to be used on a wide variety of shotguns. It uses some really tenacious double sided tape to stick to the side of your shotgun. As long as you prep the surface well, you will likely break parts of your shotgun or the Q-DC before it comes off. The Universal Q-DC has relief cuts in areas where pins would commonly be located on the receiver to allow the pins to be removed for cleaning.

This universal version of the Q-DC has already been tested on popular shotguns like the excellent Beretta 1301 and Mossberg 930. Aridus Industries has made a downloadable template available via their website so you can check for fit on your shotgun.

These are being offered at a steep discount during this pre-order. Check them out at Aridus Industries.

Crowdfund This: Aridus Industries Q-DC

Aridus Industries is attempting to crowdfund the launch of their Q-DC. You can brush up on the details of the Q-DC by checking out our previous post.

They aren’t going through a typical crowdfunding site since most of the high profile sites wouldn’t accept a firearm part. Aridus Industries has launched their own website and is running their own campaign instead. All you need to do to be part of helping make this project a reality is pre-order a carrier or some swag from the site. These funds will go toward creating the molds for the Q-DC’s polymer shell carrier.

The pre-order items are being offered at a significant discount versus their eventual retail pricing. You’ll get a deal, be the first on the block to have your Q-DC, and help launch a very slick product.

The Q-DC from Aridus Industries is one of those products that you need to have on your radar. It is one of the most exciting shotgun accessories that I have seen in a while.

The Q-DC is somewhat like a hybrid between a shell carrier and a magazine. It consists of 2 main parts – a mounting plate and a quick detach shell carrier. The mounting plate is affixed to your shotgun’s receiver and the QD shell carriers lock into the mounting plate. The shell carriers can be easily released from the mounting plate via a large locking tab that is located on the rear of the plate. The result is a shell carrier that allows the user to quickly and easily swap in new shell carriers much like they would when changing a magazine in a magazine fed firearm.

The shell carriers are made from polymer with an aluminum back plate. Each cell in the carrier has its own leaf spring for positive retention. The use of a spring for retention allows the shell cells to be large enough to easily insert a new shell and to accept shells in either brass up or brass down orientation. Even without quick change functionality, this is a well thought out shell carrier.

The design of the carriers allows them to fit many soft AR-15 magazines pouches. This allows your shotgun to work with the gear that you already have and opens up all kinds of interesting possibilities for new ways to feed your shotgun. Even a typical belt rig that would typically be used for an AR-15 could be used to support the shotgun.

The Q-DC is not available yet. It takes a lot of capital to get a product like this off the ground, especially when it comes to molds for the polymer parts. Aridus Industries has announced that they will be launching a crowd funding effort to make the Q-DC a reality. Consider this an introduction so that you are primed when the crowd fund campaign comes online.
