    Surefire forend light, side-saddle shell holder, ghost ring sights, and one of those extended "strike" choke tubes.

    A Surefire led flashlight is handy around midnight.

    The budget model (G2) can be found for around $40 and it's very bright.

    The most "budget" model I see is still close to $300 from Surefire. Where are you seeing, or finding a "G2".

    Either way, they look pretty cool (except the big Surefire badging) they're pretty expensive considering you can get a new forend and light mount < $40 then add the weapon light of your choice. Maybe I'm missing something.

    This is the one I had in mind, $350. I didn't see where DirtyD said price was a consideration. You ask for ideas, I'll help you spend your money. ;)

    pics of said choke tube....?


    i don't recall seeing any tactical style choke tubes....

    The choke on the Remington model 870 TAC. Call it a breacher extension or whatever you want; if I am out of ammo, I will strike with it. ;)

    They have the G2 Led and G2 Nitrolon.

    G2® Nitrolon® Flashlight available in Black, Green, Yellow and Tan from SureFire

    I have the G2 Nitro in black, bought it from B&S guns Mesquite for $36, the Led is around $60.

    Here is mine on display.

    Ok, that's what I was thinking of as the budget-minded end vs. the $300+ Surefires.

    What forend and light holder? I assume it's a separate light holder?
