Adaptive Tactical updated its popular EX Performance Tactical Light Forend for 2021, giving Remington and Mossberg pump-action shotgun owners an opportunity to add the latest version of this capable accessory to their guns. The newly redesigned Tactical Light Forend is an incredibly simple way to upgrade most popular Remington and Mossberg pump-action shotguns for home-defense use, thanks to its textured operating surface and built-in 300-lumen tactical flashlight.

Integrated into the polymer fore-end to provide a clean, sleek, seamless design, the tactical light included in the EX Performance design operates with two AA batteries that provide a total runtime of up to three hours. Three separate modes are offered: momentary-on, constant-on or rapid-strobe. Each mode offers a wide beam designed for close-range defensive applications. The light's reinforced polymer housing is topped by an anodized aluminum bezel complete with a tempered glass lens, ensuring that you'll have a durable, duty-ready design that'll withstand abuse, if needed.

Those who want to attach other accessories can do so easily, thanks to the removable light housing. Once removed, you'll find a 2" section of Picatinny rail available for the attachment of other accessories. Additionally, the rail can also be covered by an included nose cap, giving you a clean, sleek, capable fore-end with a textured profile that allows for easy racking of your shotgun. To facilitate racking, the front and rear portions of the forearm are contoured to provide small ledges that give you greater leverage when working a shotgun action.

Adaptive Tactical's EX Performance Tactical Light Forend is designed to fit onto Remington 870 shotguns, as well as Mossberg 500, 590 and 590M shotguns. The fore-end will function on the Mossberg Maverick 88, but it will require the additional purchase of a fore-end slide assembly from Mossberg to function. The Tactical Light Forend is not compatible with the Mossberg Shockwave. Suggested retail pricing is $129.99. For more information, visit
