    GG&G has first-rate and well thought out stuff. I seriously doubt its flimsy.

    I have a number of their other mounts on my AR's for lights, slings, red dots, etc, and they have been going strong with pretty steady use, for over 20 years now. I wouldn't hesitate to go to them if they had something that looked like it would fill a need.

    I was thinking about putting one of those mounts on my Shockwave but decided I just like it better, plain and simple as it is.

    I own perhaps four Surefire flashlights, but the forend seems priced slightly too high. It's literally more than I paid for the shotgun. I could see $250, maybe, but not $400.

    The larger issue with the forend is that I can't remove it and place it on my rifle if I want to go that route in the future, and then I'll lose a lot of money selling the forend. If I get the rail, I can keep that option open.

    I mounted my GG&G sling adapter today and it's first rate! It's the same as the item you showed but without the rail section. The steel is pretty thick and robust so I expect it would hold up just fine.

    It is Surefire, so there is a real premium attached to the sell price! Surefire is overkill for most applications, but it does work.

    I don't have experience with that particular one, but have used other GG&G flashlight mounts and I love them. Good quality stuff and not terribly expensive... I trust their stuff.

    Just remember when using a flashlight on a gun, as soon as you turn it on, the bad guy know exactly where you are. Don't turn it on until you know exactly where HE is.
