Product Preview: Adaptive Tactical EX Performance Tactical Light Forend

posted on July 11, 2019
Adaptive Tactical LLC has released its EX Performance Tactical Light Forend. Designed for use on the Remington 870 12-ga. and Mossberg 500 & 88, 590 and 590M 12-ga. (pump) shotguns, Adaptive Tactical's fore-end light is designed for personal defense and law enforcement applications in low light conditions.

The AA-powered 300-lumen flashlight integrates easily into the fore-end body, and can be installed by the owner. The mechanism has a run time of up to three hours, and is toggled between its three illumination settings (Momentary On, Constant On and Rapid Strobe) by an ambidextrous On/Off button. In terms of construction, the light features a tempered-glass lens and an aluminum bezel with a defense chamfer edge, housed in a weatherproof, reinforced-polymer housing with a patented, no-tool quick-detach rail clamp. The flashlight-portion of the fore-end system is also removable, leaving the two inches of Picatinny rail free to be used with another accessory, or simply covered with the included cap when not in use.
