Flashlight mount for tube feed .22 pump?

Anyone ever seen one that works?

I'm about to make one.
But haven't came up with any brilliant ideas yet!

Anyone ever seen or made one??

I have a sudden pressing need.

Sick coon with a broken back leg walking in circles in the back yard the last three nights.

By the time I get a gun, & a light, & boots on, he is gone again.
Acts like he has rabies or something??

Really acting strange!!

All I can think of is a barrel clamp. Or duct tape to take care of business tonight.

If you have a bicycle inner tube you can cut a few 1/2" wide section of, you can use them as a nice sturdy rubber band. Put the light against a spacer that keeps the beam straight with the bore, and just use a couple or three sections of inner tube to hold it in-place. Duct tape works too, but I'd be hesitant to put duct tape on anything with sentimental value...

Yep. I don't know how nice the gun is, but I'd definitely want to pad the gun from the flashlight. Maybe blue painters tape would make a better one time use material?

All good ideas guys!
But, this is a good old 06 Winchester, so I am hesitant to duct tape a $125 Streamlight Strion to it.
Or the light.

I'm thinking more along a barrel clamp that straddles the mag tube that I can put on & take off easily with a clamp thumb screw.

The light can go in a 1" Weaver scope ring.
And the clamp-on mount can have a Weaver scope base on it.

Just haven't figured out the lay-out of the barrel clamp yet to keep it out of the sight picture.

Ain't no big deal, as I can easily use the light and rifle at the same time.

Just be faster to grab one unit when the sick Zombi coon comes back in the night!

Zip Ties?

Now, why didn't I think of that in the first place???

Streamlight Stylus-Pro zip-Tied to 06 Winchester.
Didn't even need a mouse pad to bore sight it with the sights!

It gives plenty of light to see the sights out to 25 yards, and the beam is centered with the sights.

So small, you never know it's there.

That leaves the 640 Lumen Strion free to look for him!

Thanks C.R.!!
It's a better solution then building a clamp for the big light!!!

Yes, that's what I was thinking about making.
But I found a better solution shown above.

Thanks!!

You can go on amazon or elsewhere online and buy a bolt section of picatinny rail you can mount anywhere on the barrel. I did this on a sig 522 and I personally don't see any problem with accuracy but then again I am more of a plinker and not a bullseye shooter

That looks like an efficient and expedient set up.

Catch it in a cage trap and just shoot it in the daylight.

Well, I hit it with a Aguila Super-Colbri CB Cap while it was climbing over a chain-link fence at 1:45 AM this morning.

Solid body shot 30 yards away, and I heard it hit with the customary 'smack' wet meat sound.
Knocked him off the fence, but he made it into some brush.

So I don't know if I got him our not?
Hated to leave it like that, but by the time I got through two yard gates, he was gone.

I'll see if he shows up again tonight.

Nobody hates it worse then I do, I can assure you.

But it is sick, with a broken leg, and the way it's been acting, may have rabies.

Otherwise, I wouldn't have ever taken the shot that far with an under-powered CB Cap.

But we have houses, kids, & pets on all sides of us.
So a more powerful rifle is out of the question.

And that sick & injured coon needs to be out of here, permanently.
One way, or another.

I setup a Remington tube fed pump for my Father a number of years ago, so he could get rid of the rabbits eating Mom's flowers.



I kept all the crap on it and use it for armadillo control these days. Instead of the super colibri, I prefer Eley subsonic or at least Remington CBee.

The 20gn/500fps Aguila is not even as good as a decent pellet rifle for something that size.

I've used silicon tape. Only sticks to itself and makes removal without mess very easy.

another thought,they make velcro tape for keeping extentoin cords together wrap it around a couple times and it grabs its self that might work well if you want it quick detachable

I have a .22 that I have a laser mounted on. They make combination laser and flashlight mounts for rifles too. But I've been using the one I have for over 20 years. It is mounted high above the barrel so that you can see through the mount and use iron sights. For a long time it was my go to varmint gun just for purposes like the OP mentioned but I could also use it during the day. Again I see combination lights and lasers for .22's at Wally World sometimes. I haven't been there for a while so I'm not sure if they still have them. But there's nothing like a laser for shooting varmints. They like to run and nailing one at night even with a flashlight is tough. Not so with a laser. You can shoot from the hip and if that red dot is on the varmint you will hit it.

The only real problem I see is that you're using a .22 for a rabid critter. I've seen rabid animals take repeated shots to the head and keep right on like nothing happened at all. I had a rabid fox at point blank range one night. The only thing between me and it was my Marlin 60. I was half using it as a rifle and half using it as a club to keep the fox away from me. Something told me to take a wide swing around the corner of my house when I saw that fox coming right to the front door eating the cat's food. It stared at us through the window. Not typical fox behavior. So I grab my 60 and head outside. I see the fox go around the corner of the house and I know I don't want to step around that corner if that fox is right on the other side. And sure enough he was. I was a step and a half away from him at least. Far enough to get my rifle between us. The thing is I fired right into it's head like 8 times and it didn't even flinch. I had the gun right against it's head. Rabid animals do not act right for sure. It took a 12 ga. to finally bring that thing down. My 20 ga. didn't do the job either. I was thinking it was a super fox at that point. I didn't have a 12 at the time so I called a neighbor who had one. I bought a 12 ga. right after that. Rabid critters are no fun at all.

I found this laser and mount for .22's that might work for you. Again I've seen combination setups.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rifle-Laser-...-/221199512947

Also others have mentioned a barrel clamp. I have a light mounted to a pump shotgun using the clamp they use for adding a mag extension for a 870 type shotgun. Here's a sample of how people do that. I can take photos of my setup if you want but it's too big for a .22 barrel. Still there are lots of clamps in the world. Here's one like I use for my shotguns. This setup has worked well for me. I clamp one side to the barrel and the other side to a round flashlight. It's just a matter of finding the right size stuff.

When I have to add a light to something I want to keep in good shape, I use Mueller pre-wrap foam tape. I get it from the sporting goods stores and use it to build a protective base. I then put on the light and tape it all together. I only use this with low round count shooting as the tape could melt.
