    Sometimes here, sometimes there

    I've seen several that were attached to the barrel. A mag tube mount will hold a 1" inch light around the barrel.

    I think if you cut the barrel down to 18.5" you'd be legal, but don't know if thats flush with your mag tube.

    The only way to do that would be to have it registered as a SBS, which I believe has to be a C&R in order to quality in CA.

    It definitely would not be legal if you shaved off 3inches but I don't know the exact laws of CA at the moment although I can look them up tomorrow if you would like. They do make tactical lights to go on the barrel but most install lights on the mag tube.
