I got a remington 870 12ga an im thinkin about puttin a flashlight on it any reccomendations on lights, an were to mount it would be appreciated
I dont like the Surefire lights built into the forend and I definitely dont like the price.Just mounted a UTG ELP223Q on my shotgun.... LED, 150 lumens, picatinny ready and I paid $50 which I think is a great deal for this light. I looked at the Surefire and Streamlights at twice the price and just liked the UTG better.
So far, so good... I'll be giving it a workout this weekend so we'll see how it holds up.I dont like the Surefire lights built into the forend and I definitely dont like the price.
Let us know how it holds up to repeated recoil. I am in the market for a good light for my Mossy 590A1.
I was looking at the Elzetta Complete Shotgun Illumination Kit it has a 235-Lumen Elzetta ZFL-M60-SF2C with 20-degree Flood Lens and Clicky Tailcap and Elzetta ZSM-T Mount. It was over 200 bucks though and that is way over budget. Any suggestions on a light to use in the Elzetta light mount?Whatever you do, do not purchase a light that is not designed as a weapons light, built to endure the heavy recoil of a 12g. shotgun. IMO, Surefire lights are the gold standard, beginning with the dedicated 618 forends. The Streamlight TLR-1 is also very popular. I recently purchased an Elzetta light, which I consider the equivalent of any SF I have owned. It is built like a tank, uses Malkoff LED emmiters (which are about as good as you can get), and features interchangeable tailcaps and bezels. I prefer CDM Gear mounts.
One of the Surefire G2 lights would work, perhaps the G2X Pro. I think it can be purchased for about $65. The CDM Gear Mod-C is a really nice mount (a little more expensive than the Elzetta, but worth it, IMO).Any suggestions on a light to use in the Elzetta light mount?
