SureFire is now selling new shotgun forend weaponlights. Like the older SureFire shotgun lights, the DSF unit replaces the entire forend of a shotgun and has built in controls in addition to a white light.
The new units feature flashlights that have a maximum output of 600 lumens and run up to three hours on two CR123A batteries. SureFire does not offer any candela measurement for the peak beam intensity, but instead states:
The LED’s light is focused by a precision reflector to create a smooth, wide beam perfect for closer-range shotgun applications typical in law enforcement and home defense—with enough reach and surround light to properly identify threats and maintain situational awareness.
Older forend lights from SureFire, the 317 & 617 series, had 100 and 200 lumens output respectively.
Switches on the forend are ambidextrous. There are both momentary- and constant-on switches.
The new DSF-series lights will be made for the Remington 870, Mossberg 500/590 series, Benelli M1/M2 and Winchester 1200 shotguns. MSRP is listed as $375. The 870 lights will ship by the end of the month. No word on when the others will ship.
