    Just bought a Remington 887 Nitro Mag Tactical and wanted to put a light on the picatinny rail that is attached to the end of the barrel. Any suggestions on a light that won't break the bank?

    It's nice to put a light on a shotgun as your looking to illuminate out to CQB to 40-50 yards . There are plenty of decent lights out there for under $100 that work really well at that range. You don't need to spend $300+ to get a decent light.
    You can get a Surefire G2 and mount for about $100. Streamlight TLR-1 might be a good option. Inforce makes a nice light for around $100-125. I'm liking Fenix lights these days and Amazon has mounts for them to fit a picatiny rail. Some folks really like the Elzetta lights. Make sure you get a good mount from a reputable company.
    Check out Rainier Arms or Weapon Outfitters.

    Thanks for the info! I think I've settled on the Surefire G2 Pro. Going to the gun show here in Atlanta tomorrow to see if I can find one.

    A good light. Get a good mount.
    Keep an open mind to a Streamlight or an Inforce and you can't go wrong.
    Best,

    +1 for Fenix lights. I have a TK10 mounted on my 870 with a "mounting solutions plus" mount. The light is over 200 lumens (cant remember the exact rating) Had the light on my AR for a few years and now its on one of the house guns. The mount Im using is the lowest profile, rock solid, no BS mount I could find. MS+ sells nice stuff!
