Streamlight TLR-1 On A 12 gauge 870...

Are the Streamlight flashlights with the LED bulbs capable of occassional use on a 12 gauge shotgun? The fore grip on my 870 is capable of having a picatinny flashlight mounted and I wonder how the Streamlight TLR-1 might hold up to the recoil. Thanks...

Stream light

I've fired many rounds through my 930SPX with a Streamlight TLR-1 mounted. No problems yet.

I've used a TL-1 on an 870 for a while and had no issues.

yep, run with it. Got one on my shotgun right now and put many rounds through it while attached.
