Does Surefire make a taclight for the Benelli M3?

I've seen Surefire's Benelli replacement forearm taclight but I've never seen or heard of it made for the M3 specifically. Even the Surefire website says its for the "S90" shotgun,but the M3 isn't the same as the M1 because it has a pump. I'm almost sure it won't work.
Does anybody know?

No, they don't. I've had 10 customers ask lately.

I don't know anything about the M3 but will this work?

I have one for my 870 and it is a nice sturdy unit.

edited to attempt to fix link. I gave up. You'll have to look under the "shotgun accessories" yourself.

If all you are looking for is something to clamp to the barrel or the Mag tube, go for the "Universal" series - they will work just dandy.

I just don't like the idea of any exposed cabling with my lighting systems, hence, on any longarm I'd want a dedicated fore arm system where all the wiring is hidden. The M3 doesn't have a dedicated forearm unit from SureFire at this time, but that doesn't mean they won't in the future.

Hey 9mmMike,

Thanks for the SideArmor link!

What kind of flashlight are they attaching to the rail?

They are using the M3 from Surefire/Streamlight.

This is the cheapest place I've found for them and I have done business with this outfit but not for a light.

Sidearmor buys their lights from this guy as well since they are both in AZ.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. What is to keep the wire from coming loose if God forbid you actually have to use it to defend yourself in your home? I think I'll give Surefire a phone call.

Not to pick nits - but the M3 illuminator is not made by SureFire - it's made by Insight Technologies and is co-branded by Streamlight.

Great little light system, though I'm not sure I'd use one on a pump action shotgun.

The Sidearmor system looks like a good system though....
