Go Gauge Tactical Light LED Follower for Shotguns Review
The Go Gauge Light is a simple but very interesting accessory to install in your 12-gauge shotgun. It is basically an upgrade of the existing factory follower in your shotgun.
With the Go Gauge Light upgrade, you will be getting an additional function to your shotgun. It will now have an illuminating red color coming from the magazine tube which is easy to see in the dark.
It is not a follower which glows all the time, it will start flashing when you chamber the last round. It starts glowing when your magazine becomes empty and follower hits the stop lips.
The idea is very interesting! You can quickly grab the next shotshell and place it into the magazine tube with the red light coming from it. You will only see the light after your weapon is out of ammunition. That way, you will know it is time to reload.
Actually, I always teach shotgun owners to load a shotgun without looking at loading port. It is good idea to learn how to load a shotgun with eyes closed. But this glowing follower will be handy for new shotgunners.
Sometimes it will not work and will not glow, but it worked in about 90% of tests. I have tested it in front of the mirror and I could see some red light in a mirror. So it is can be very slightly visible to the “enemy”.
The Go Gauge Light is currently priced at $21.95 on the Go Gauge Tactical website. They charge a flat shipping rate of $2.99 for this order, although you can get free shipping if you spend more than $30 with them. The Go Gauge Light is supposed to be compatible with virtually all 12-gauge pump-action shotguns. Some of the models which have already been tested successfully with the Go Gauge Light include the Remington 870 Series, Mossberg 500/590 Series, Maverick 88 Series, Kel-Tec KSG, and Benelli M1 Super Combat 90.
This is an interesting upgrade for shotguns. The biggest benefit is that it is a high-quality follower made of self-lubricating Delrin plastic. It does not require any special modifications to your weapon, so don’t worry if you are not a gun expert.
There is also non-LED version which is a very nice follower which I really liked too. Both followers work with Remington 870s with dimples.
