This guy is a member here. I have no idea of his products or even integrity... Just seen his posts. I think the lights are all sold seperate but you likely knew that...

the site is very difficult to use, doesnt look like he has more than clamps..Im looking for a flashlight that i can be able to keep off and quickly turn on as i approach a target when needed so i do not give away position or give an intruder something to aim at

The stream light and other names that escape me have or can be fitted with a pressure switch.
The mounts are for those lights... I was just trying to help you cover the mount issue...
Start a thread here about the lights as many folks will pass the "add on's threads like the plague.

I am in the process of doing the same thing and I have settled on buying a Mako Forend to attach a light to my 590A1.

I have not found any clamps that appeal to me and candewman has not come out with his clamp as of yet that is specific to the 590.

This one works on any design that has enough magazine tube exposed in front of the forearm for it to fit. I've used it on a couple of different pumpguns and been happy with it. The last light I put on one of these was the new TLR-3, a compact one-cell pistol light ( http://www.opticsplanet.net/streamli...r-3-69220.html ). It makes for a very light weight and yet adequately powerful combination, and the fact that it's an LED light means it'll handle shotgun recoil better.

Since I'm right handed, I like to tuck the light up on the left side of the gun with the rocker switch easy to hand for the support hand thumb to manipulate.

hth,
