    ElZetta. No question. Most rugged, tough, almost indestructible and dependable light in the world. Mount is great as well.

    Mine on my duty shotgun has the flood head instead of the pinpoint long range head.

    Recommend a CDM mount and a Streamlight TLR-1 HI

    Both are excellent choices.

    Could you post a picture of your 590 showing exactly how this is mounted so that I can see how it looks?

    Mr. Firearm, here's a picture of my setup. The one thing I'd avoid is having a flashlight that might extend beyond the muzzle. This mount can be installed for either a left or right hand shooter and I simply use my thumb to activate the light.

    If you have additional questions I'm happy to answer.

    I'll second the Streamlight TL-Racker. Great product!

    Alright fella’s, here is the latest addition to my 590 Shockwave.

    It’s the CDM Gear Light Mount along with a Streamlight TLR-4, tactical flashlight with laser.

    Yea I know, it’s not the TLR-1 HL that I wanted to get but still it’s something.

    Still would like to buy the TRL-1 HL though! (anyone willing to sell one?...send me a PM).

    This forum is very convincing on tricking out a 590 Shockwave....LOL!

    Again, thanks everyone for all your tips, opinions, recommendations and suggestions!

    Mr Firearm, typically, Optics Planet has good prices on TLR-1 HL's.

    Plus they normally offer coupons for discounts and free shipping. Especially if you're a new customer.

    Disclaimer - no personal or financial tie to them. Just a satisfied customer.

    Mr Firearm, something totally unrelated to weapons lights. I found the original installation of the forward corncob retaining strap was an issue for me when running the gun hard or using the light. The rough ends of the strap tended to irritate or cut my hand. I simply reversed the strap mounting. Problem solved.

    See picture of my TLR-1 light earlier. It shows how I reversed the strap mounting.

    The other thing I did to improve the birdshead grip was to wrap it with grip tape. Really helps especially if it's raining or your hands sweat.

    Regards

    Any of these accessories fit a 410 Shockwave?

    Ernst, thanks for the info on the strap. I'll keep that in mind.

    As for grip handling improvement, well I already took care of that. Click on the following link and view the pictures.

    Very great information on this thread.
    I’ve owned my Shockwave for three weeks and one day.
    As you can see in my Avatar I have a GG&G rail installed. No light!
    Before I discovered this forum, I ordered a Crimson Trace Light (CWL-102) I’m told it will be here soon.
    So many great options, why did I choose the Crimson Trace? Not totally sure of the answer, because I like Olight and Streamlight and see so many other choices on this thread.

    My Shockwave is a 20Ga, oh well. I bought an inexpensive shell caddy that replaced the original Mossberg strap. Also installed UTG Red laser on top of the receiver. Wrapped the grip with some skateboard tape. I ordered from Mossberg the Shockwave carry bag.
    Really contemplating the SBL brace, which will render the Shockwave carry bag useless. I’ll read more about other members opinions on braces, not that there are many, just what is available and how they function.

    So a question for the collective..I have a shockwave 410 bore and not a lot of options for ,at the very least, a light mount. Can I put a rail on the top and mount a light on that?

    Never seen a mount specifically made for a 410 shockwave. Back in the old days we used a couple of metal hose clamps to mount flashlights. A thin one, like typically used on fuel lines, might fit around your magazine tube or even over the cap. Used a rivet and spacer for offset. So one clamp goes around the tube, then an offset spacer, then a second clamp to hold the flashlight. All held together by a rivet.

    Just a thought.

    I have the TL-Racker on mine as well as a crimson trace green laser. Makes it easier to shoot from the hip. The only issue with the TL-Racker is if you want to use the sling stud on the front, the sling would hang down in front of the light.
