    I run a ring mount on my semi auto shotguns w/ a pistol weapon light. When you angle the light at 10:30 you can work the toggle switch constant on or momentary on without shifting your grip. I like this set up because I can also standize on a pistol style weapon light on all my gun (pistol rifle or shotgun). I started out with a inexpensive insight m3 (same thing as a streamlight TR-1). I like the attchment of the m3 better and it's like $90. I've won over two dozen weaponlights at night matches. I sell the fancy surfires and I keep the less expensive insights. For shotgun or pistol the m3 works well. For rifle I like the m3x. I got 2 m6's for the wow factor of the laser.

    This is the ring mount I use. Fits the benelli with no modification. I hogged it out with a dremel to fit my remington 1100. I think it's the best ring mount made.

    Yar what kind of choke tube you running?

    Anything noticeably better over the factory Bennelli stuff?


    And christ dude, your barrel/extension setup does look crazy from that angle. What length tube/extension is that?

    I run the colonial arms extended sporting clays chokes. I think that's the name, they are gold in color.

    The tube on the 1100 is 11+1. It's pretty long but not as long but the angle of the pic makes it look even longer. The benelli is 4" shorter and is 10+1+1

    Thanks for the info.

    Did not even notice that was your 1100, and not your Benelli. You oughtta throw up a pic sometime of both of them in the same area for comparison sometime.
