ZSM Elzetta Tactical Shotgun Mount

ZSM Elzetta Tactical Shotgun Mount can be mounted on Remington and Mossberg shotguns thanks to spacers. Mount is made of plastic which means that it may be not as sturdy as metal mounts but it won’t scratch barrel and magazine extension.

The mount is low profile and light-weight. But it is not as low profile as CDM Gear clamp.

Installation is very easy and simple, the mount attaches to the barrel and magazine tube. You can attach flashlight to your flashlight in just 5 minutes.

Flashlight mount reliably holds flashlight in place under recoil. I have tested it using many different types of rounds including buckshot and slugs.

    You missed the Elzetta’s ability to release your flashlight with the turn of a thumbscrew !
    This is one of my favorite aspects of my Elzetta mounts (AR15 & pump shotgun versions)

    1. If I recall correctly, the Elzetta shotgun flashlight clamp is offered in two versions, a less-expensive one without the thumbscrew feature, and a more expensive one with thumbscrews. I think the mount in these pictures is the non-thumbscrew model.

      1. Yes, correct. I have a thumbscrew, but don’t use it beacuse I don’t need that feature. That is why I’ve forgotten to mention it.
