Magazine extension/light 12guage

Post by Icantthinkofone » Sat Oct 13, 2018 8:43 am

I have a Remington 870 tactical express 12guage with a 6+1 capacity. Currently running a Blackhawk Knoxx gen3 stock and Forend and looking for a weapon light. I love the idea of the magazine tube lights but the only option I’m seeing is the Steiner Mk 7 or the gorilla tactical i think? Based out of Thailand? The MK7 won’t work for me since it doesn’t come with a pressure switch and with my stock tube I’ll have to reach past the barrel and hit the button which is also quite combersome, and i can’t find a link for the other light not have i heard if it’s even reliable. Just a short ten second vid on YouTube. What are my options guys? I’m open to other suggestions like the Eotech forend but i do like the idea of the magazine light

I use a Magpul Forend with a 2" rail (or a Magpul cantilever rail) and a Streamlight TRL-1, 300 Lumens. That way you don't spend a fortune and can turn your light on without moving your hand; works great for me.
Magpul Forend: $28.00
Magpul rail: $9.00
Streamlight TRL-1: $100.00

Just a less expensive way to have a quality Light setup with quality parts. :mrgreen:

That’s a good suggestion! I’m just not sure if i like things to protrude that much, i hate the idea of it getting stuck on something or getting banged around unnecessarily, i k ow it’s all about the training and proper training will keep that from happening but, less snagage the better. Do you ever run into issue where the light gets caught on random stuff?
This is what i was ideally looking for.

No, I never have had that problem. To me it's a no-nonsense way of adding a light, and having it easily turned on/off. I have seen many people use the same configuration with no complaints.
