Railed forearm for a 20ga 870

Post by Cybrludite » Sat Mar 10, 2018 1:58 pm

Looking to build a home defense shotgun for my niece, and since I want her to actually practice with it, I'll be building it on a 20ga Rem870. My Google-fu is coming up short on finding a forearm I can mount a light on for a 20ga 870. Everything else I need to tactical-fy a 20ga? No problem. Forearms? Nada.

Hmmm.. I thought Magpul made one. Just checked and they only make it for 12 gauge.

You could grab a rail, some nuts and bolts and make your own. Or you could get one of these: https://www.cdmgear.com/lightmounts.html Scroll down for 20 gauge.

Why not just use a barrel clamp for the flashlight?

There is a barrel clamp on that page I linked. Near the bottom.
