Default Need A Flashlight For My Shotgun

I just bought the Interstate Arms Hawk Model 982 and the ProMag Remington 870 Add-On Package and need to find a decent flashlight to mount on it. Suggestions?

I just did, thanks! They do look cool but I've never done the rail/tactical thing before and I don't have the shotgun yet. How do I know if a flashlight is "mountable" on a rail?

It's all about the mounts and where the button is positioned really. Their flashlights are well designed for all tactical purposes. I believe there is a review on YouTube if you want to really see how insane the light is. I have one and love it.
If you're looking for more of a standard mounted use flashlight you might find something on opticsplanet.com

Well I looked up your suggestion too, also nice. I found it listed here on ebay... it's out of China but China quality has really stepped up over the last few years (I hate to say) but I'm wondering if I should go for it. Other tactical mount lights are at least $60 and up.... for a flashlight!!!

I have two of them, the L2 and the L2m,i have the L2m on my AR.they are extremely bright "350 lumen" and have a very tight light pattern. Ive been really happy with them. If you decide to go with one pm me and i can give you more info depending on which one you get.

You beat me to it. I put a Solarforce on my Mossberg and saved the more expensive Fenix for handheld applications.

Understand that the mounts (aluminum picatinny mount on the mag tube from GG&G, picatinny light mount from the Fenix website) might cost more than the flashlight! They did for me, by about twice.

I have 2 surefires and 2 streamlight stingers, they are great lights, but my solarforce lights are brighter and just as reliable for a fraction of the cost
