Anyone seen one? I saw such a beast in SureFire's big promo brochure (pretty cool BTW) but I'll be damned if I can find one on the net.

It showed an "operator" with an 870 with vert grip/light mounted on it. You can not see much of the forend but it does not look like a DIY add on project...

Anyone?

I have been looking for the same thing. I am just about ready to try and make one since I can't seem to find a source

I found the source, once, and lost it after deciding that 200 dollars was more than I could afford. Try contacting Sure-fire, they may be able to help. You do want to buy an M-900 don't you?

I believe Knights Armaments make it.

$200 for the forend
$650+ for the lights
HOLY S---!!!!

Have you all gone crazy?

it is made by surefire...i believe the 870 is the M70 and the one for a Mossberg is the M69. retail cost at the store i work is $100, so it can probably be found cheaper on the net...

Id much prefer Surefire's standard shotgun forearm. But then again, I have no need for anything other than a light on a shotgun.

Kinda hoping that would be the cheaper way to a light equipped forend but it appears not to be the case... Plus the idea of a vertical grip on a SG seems appealing but may not be all that... What do ya'll thing on that topic? A vert grip could be a little rough on the wrist...

I guess I am gonna go with a standard SF forend/light...

I think a vertical grip on a shotgun is a totally bad idea. I think the movement is much more natural with a regular grip. And if you look around you can find the surefire foreend for under $200 bucks. They're in the EE pretty regularly.

I will second that.

I've shot one and only one shotty with vertical grip and loved it, its a more natural position for the hand than with a regular forearm. I'm not a big fan of shotguns, but i liked that one.

I have read several posts in the Lights and Lasers section about people who have had their SureFire 900 lights get loose with lots of taking them on and off. I would think that if that can make them loose, using them to rack a shotgun slide would definitely make them come loose. Working a pump at high speed would be a lot of torque on the pistol grip part of the light. I would vote for the regular SureFire forend for your shotgun.

I use this little doll on my 870 with an Insight M-3. Works just fine, albeit it's not as "tactical" as all those other mounts.
