Help! 870 Flashlight Recommendations!

Post by Kuhner » Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:17 pm

Hey all!

I just purchased my 870 tactical and ordered a replacement Magpul Stock and M-Lock Forend. I am looking to take advantage of the M-Lok system to mount a flashlight to the 870 and was wondering if anyone has used a particular accessory or light they have found to be worthwhile.

Also, any other small mods you have done that you think make a difference would be appreciated as well.

Get the Magpul mlock rail for it and mount a TLR-1 or Inforce rifle light

This is not very helpful with your specific set up, and the actual component has apparently been discontinued?

Nonetheless, this is what my Rem. 870 Express wears in its current defensive/ HD set-up configuration: ... y-shotgun/

you will like the magpul furniture it's pretty awesome. you might look into a big safety, i really like my vangcomp big dome. you can try something like this ... 00-012-302. it will allow you more flashlight options.

I've been wanting a good flash light for my 870 Express Tactical, and after waiting a few years Streamlight came out with their 850 lumen Forend, this year 2019, I installed it and it's awesome, activation is easy and ambi, I'm glad I waited...
