So I need some help from my fellow mossberg owners. I'm looking at installing a flashlight on the end of my mossberg 500. I was going to go with the TLR-1 ($108.09) but after looking at it, I would need to buy both the remote switch ($33.72) AND the female receptor ($39.99) for it to work. I then saw that the TLR-1 HP had an option to order it WITH the female receptor already on the back for $159.99. That's only $10 more than the regular TLR-1 with the remote switch female end combined.
Here is the real question.
This is the mount I was looking to grab: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002LEZHFQ?m=A18GR55YAPTHW0&qid=1329662123&sr=1-2
The TLR-1 HP has a larger face than the regular TLR-1, so much so that the widest part of the light is the lens. If I attempt to mount the light on the screw on tri-rail, will it fit or will the lens diameter hit the barrel and prevent the light from fully mounting on the rail? The HP is quite a bit more powerful, so I really like that light. And it's only $10 more.
Does anyone have experience with this enough to fill me in? Are there any other picatinny mounts out there that may help this work? I'll be sporting an 18.5" HD barrel and the stock tube, so I expect to have a few inches overhang from the barrel over the tube and would like my light to mount somewhere in there.
Thanks for any information!
