Remington 870 Tactical
Bought this to install on the 870 Tactical Magul Edition. The install was straight forward. Remove the barrel, remove the handguard nut, install new light handguard, reinstall.
The light balances well. Is not too heavy, has had a good runtime without draining the batteries when stored in the off position for a few months. The swith layout is excellent. On/Off, Momentary, Bright/Low Cut off switch. Newer Head is much shorter than the older design. Only thing lacking is the texturing on the grip, needs to be more aggressive. Slippery with sweaty palms, or when wet outside. A good stippling job would greatly help yet should be so out of the box. Instructions are a little lacking but not difficult to install. The tool is terrible to remove the nut, the magpul tool is much better of a design. Perhaps work with magpul to have better stippling and a better tool for install.
Other than that I would not hesitate. This is the third one I have installed is year. On my 870, and M2 and my pops 500. Would like to see options avaialble for FNH SLP and Benelli Pump.

|Output / Runtime -- White Light|
|High||600||lumens / 1.5 hours|
|Low||200||lumens / 3.0 hours**|
This compact, lightweight system replaces the weapon’s original factory forend and features a recoil-proof LED that generates 600 lumens of blinding white light at maximum output, or 200 lumens with twice the runtime on its high setting. The LED’s light is focused by a precision reflector to create a smooth, wide beam perfect for closer-range shotgun applications typical in law enforcement and home defense—with enough reach and surround light to properly identify threats and maintain situational awareness.
The DSF-870 features large, tactile momentary and constant-on switches on both sides for precise control by left- and right-handed shooters. Selecting the LED’s output is achieved by activating the light in constant-on mode and then pressing the output-mode selector switch until the desired output level (600 or 200 lumens) is set. The selected output can then be left in constant-on mode or switched to momentary activation, and it stays at that output level until reset. Every DSF-Series WeaponLight also features an integrated system-disable switch to prevent accidental activation during transport, storage, or stealth operations.
A lightweight but strong aluminum module protects the optics, LED, and sophisticated electronics, minimizing length with side-by-side placement of the two lithium batteries that power the system. The module has a Mil-Spec hard anodized finish to protect against scratches, abrasion, and corrosion, while O-ring and gasket seals keep out moisture, dust, and debris. The slender forend body is made from extremely tough polymer and is textured for a secure hold and features large, tactile momentary and constant-on switching on both sides for precise control by left- and right-handed shooters.
The DSF-870 provides unmatched power, versatility, and control, making it a must-have on Remington 870 shotguns used in combat, law enforcement, or home defense. NOTE: To see our other DSF shotgun forend models, click here.
