About 6 years ago, Adaptive Tactical introduced their EX Performance Forend and Stock for Remington and Mossberg shotguns. The at the time new forend used a high-strength polymer that was equipped with a 2″ section of Picatinny rail so that a light or laser could be attached. Now, Adaptive Tactical has reintroduced a redesigned version of the EX Performance Light Forend that includes a 300-Lumen light powered by two AA batteries.

Adaptive Tactical Reintroduces the EX Performance Shotgun Light Forend
Nampa, Idaho (June 2021) – Adaptive Tactical, LLC, manufacturers of innovative firearm stocks and accessories, announces that its EX Performance Tactical Light Forend has been recently redesigned and updated for 2021. Designed for reliability and built to perform, the EX Performance Tactical Light Forend is the ideal way to quickly and easily upgrade an existing or newly purchased Remington® or Mossberg® shotgun to become a more versatile home defense firearm. Full of features important for low light use, the EX Performance Tactical Light Forend is a tool that every shotgun owner should incorporate into their training and home defense.
The compact, powerful 300-lumen tactical flashlight seamlessly integrates into the forend body and provides a run time of up to three hours. Three levels of illumination (momentary on, constant on, or rapid strobe) are designed to offer wide, smooth beams ideal for close-range shotgun applications. Powered by two AA batteries (included), the Tactical Light has a tempered glass lens and aluminum bezel with a defense chamfer edge and is housed in a weatherproof, high-strength reinforced polymer housing with a patented quick-detach thumbscrew rail clamp. The removable light reveals a two-inch Picatinny rail for attaching other accessories. The rail may also be concealed under the included nose cap.
Designed for owner installation, the EX Performance Tactical Light Forend is compatible with the Remington 870 12GA and Mossberg 500 & 88, 590 series, and 590M 12GApump shotguns. The Mossberg Maverick 88 and other shotguns with integrated action bars require the purchase of a forend slide assembly from Mossberg or an online parts retailer. The EX Performance Tactical Light Forend is not compatible with any model of the Mossberg Shockwave. MSRP $129.99.
The integration of a weapon-mounted light adds value to almost any weapon setup that might be used after the sun goes down. Whether you plan on using it for home defense or for a more tactical situation, having a light drastically improves your ability to recognize people, objects, and animals so you don’t accidentally shoot something you don’t want to. Hopefully, the Adaptive Tactical light shapes up to be a high-quality product and can withstand the recoil impulse of the shotgun as well as the pump-action that is sure to knock around the internals and electronics a fair bit as it continues to be used.
