Another Remington 870 from Remington 870 Forum.
Very nice setup from jdinny from Remington 870 Forum.
Tactical flashlights are becoming more popular to use with firearms these days. Military and law enforcement officers are the ones who particularly find them helpful when approaching a potentially dangerous situation. If they are approaching or looking for a suspect, it helps for them to have a tactical flashlight on their gun so they can see who they’re facing without having to take their hands off the weapon. Otherwise, they could end up shooting the wrong person and getting in big trouble for it.
I had several posts about Mossberg 500/590 and was surprised by number of questions about this shotgun. First of all, I recommend checking infographic: Differences Between Remington 870 vs Mossberg 500 shotguns. It explains differences in controls and design. Mossberg 500/590 is a great and very popular shotgun. There are 10,000,000 of Mossberg 500/590 shotguns made to date.
So, this post is about the best and must have upgrades for Mossberg 500/590 shotguns.
Shotgun flashlight clamps are usually made of plastic or aluminum. They cost about $60-80. Magnetic flashlight clamps are little cheaper, about $30-40. But what if I say that you can buy shotgun flashlight clamp for just five bucks? And this is not a joke.
My friend gave me inexpensive Chinese bicycle clamp which is made of strap and plastic. He told me that it can be easily used as shotgun flashlight mount.
I decided to write one more article about CDM Gear MOD-C Flashlight Clamp after night shotgun training I participated recently. Tested several clamps and flashlights and was impressed by CDM Gear MOD-C Flashlight Clamp again. I have it on my shotgun but this was the first time when I spent several hours working with it and shoot many night drills with flashlight.
It is extremely important to have flashlight on your shotgun. You can’t shoot if you can’s see a target. I have tested many flashlights and decided to make a new post. This post has information about old flashlights and new ones.
I was surprised that some of the inexpensive flashlights are really good, reliable and bright. I still prefer Fad Defense Speedlight because of its compact size and brightness but you may choose one of the other flashlights.
Nebo 6109 iProTec RM190 Firearm Flashlight is an affordable flashlight which you can get for your shotgun. It is lightweight and compact, it easily attached to rails. Uses one CR123A battery.
This is inexpensive alternative to Streamlight TLR-1/TLR-2 Flashlight.
It doesn’t look as sturdy as Inforce flashlight or Streamlight TLR flashlight but it costs just $30.
