Hi everyone,
I'm new to the board and finally got my hands on a Remington 887 Nitro Mag Tactical 12 gauge. I'm not very familiar to picatinny rails or tactical accessories so I am looking for advise on a good flashlight to add to my HD shotgun. I know the M887 comes with two picatinny rails at the end of the barrel. If possible looking anywhere from the 25-50 dollar range and a quick overview of how to attach the light to the rails. (Stupid question, but I figured this would be the best place to get information)

Look forward to getting your opinions
Sighog

I would go $100 and get a Streamlight TLR-1. You won't find many $50 lights that will survive being mounted on a shotgun for very long. The TLR-1 comes ready to mount straight on your rail also.

What sjohnny said. There are few things worse than needing light in a gunfight and not having it. And a $50 light will likely not survive long. The problem is that with the light being on the gun and subjected to the stress of practice, it may fail at a critical moment when it is really needed. Surefires are good and proven. Lots of threads on here with excellent suggestions.

I had a surefire G-2LED on my 870 and it stood up well. You might have to move your rail back so you can reach the tail cap from the forend. I mounted mine on a CDM BMT clamp using a scope ring.

:lol: :lol: Yep. People at the gunstore get weary of me coming in asking for one picatinny rail scope ring.

Thanks everyone, great points and I think I should absolutely go with the higher end proven tactical light. Will be posting pictures soon!

+1. Great setup. Just put mine back on my HD. Had it off for some heavy range shoting. It is now "blue lock tight" The gun just not the same without the TLR-1 Streamlight.

When it comes to recommended tactical flashlights with weapons, the Streamlight 69260 TLR-1 HL is definitely the best choice. If I were yours, I would spend more than a hundred dollars to get a Streamlight instead of the other.
