Surprise! EOTech Forend with Integrated Flashight for Remington 870!
So, now we have two forends with integrated flashlights for Remington 870 available: one from Surefire and second one from EOTech. It would be really interesting to hear opinions when it will be available for ordering.
The price of EOTech Integrated Fore-end Light for Remington 870 Shotguns is $249, the price of Surefire Forend for Remington 870 is about $400. So new forend is more affordable. It is good to see competition on the market of tactical accessories because end users will benefit from this.
I always wanted to buy and test forend with integrated flashlight but price was too high. EOTech Forend with Integrated Flashight for Remington 870 is affordable and I really want to order it when it is going to be available.
The integrated flashlight has 120 lumen output, uses one CR123 battery which is enough for an hour and a half of runtime. It is waterproof to 1 meter and can handle 3,000 rounds with 12 gauge slug.
Also, I like that it is low profile and doesn’t stick out much like Surefire forend.
Here are specifications from the Eotech:
