So at the moment I’ve made a few changes to my build list.
The biggest change has been the light and light mount.

Originally I was thinking the Elzetta Mount , but after reading reviews on a LOT of different “tactical” flashlights, people have complained about even good brands falling apart after a dozen rounds, a $50 to $80 dollar light shouldn’t die that easy.

So, while more expensive, I’m thinking I’ll opt for a “Streamlight TRL-1 HL” and as it’s rail mounted , a CMD ROC 12 light mount instead of the Elzetta.

This means I’ll likely need to go to a Plus 2 mag tube, but that’s ok. Speaking of, is there any problem with putting a two piece plus 2 tube on a 870 that has a detent ball mag cap?
And can the light mount replace the tube extension brace?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be helpful, thanks

UTG and it's under $40. May not be the same quality as the $100+ Mesa Tactical version.
Thanks, I ordered one to check it out.
