What is the best light mount to attach to magazine tube?

I just bought a 590A1 and am wondering what is the best mount to attach to the magazine tube to hold a surefire light?

CDM Gear. I use one on my 590.

That said, the Surefire fore-end is a better option.

Does anyone have concerns about having to rack the slide with the light mounted, using an integrated foreend like a Surefire?

I've been running a Surefire fore end on my 870P for years without a problem. Placing my index finger pointing toward the front (parallel to the barrel) gives me better control over the light's on/off pad. And have a few spare batteries.

How so? The light generally doesn't interfere with anything. The only exception was some models of the Surefire fore end require cutting off the bayonet lug on the 9 shot Mossberg 590.

Which CDM mounts are you guys talking about? Most of the ones I saw on the website said 500 only and not to be used on 590 or 590a1. Plus how likely is it to crush the mag tube?

I've tried a few and the L&M mount is my favorite. It only attaches to the magazine tube so you can take off the barrel without completely removing your light and mount.

That is why I was asking the question. For me I was not sure I liked the idea of the light moving especially if I was having to rack the slide. I preferred having a stationery light that was not part of the fore-end.

However, I wanted to see if this was really no big deal. Appreciate the feedback.

Cool. Have you ever had to use the light while shooting? Did it bother you for the light to move when you racked the slide?

Best threads are pointless and mean jack. Best for what? My wallet? Yours? Best looking? Best cost? I hate them with a passion because they are just drivelled pixels.

What the OP should have asked was what are people using with success. Hard use. Durability. Ease of use.

There's no point in the Hammacher Schlemmer either.

Back to hockey...

I have one on my 590A1 18.5" and the light doesn't move...it's no different than if one is attached to the tube

I use the GG&G forend mount with my X300. Works but is a bit bulky. I'm going to be getting the Insight/Eotech forend light soon.

Well, I understand that it is stationary and would only move if you racked the slide. The racking of the slide was what I was thinking about and probably making a non-existent deal over.

Yes, even while racking the slide, the light doesn't move. It stays pointed in whatever direction the muzzle is pointed. It's an excellent light with a tight throw and no shadow from the barrel. 200 lumens is very bright in a house.
