Torch for under slung on a OU shotgun.

Opinion`s please on a torch suitable for under slung on a OU shotgun, for close in foxing. It needs to be NM800/T50 size/weight and have the facility to fit a rat tail switch.

I'm assuming you quote that type of torch because you have one... with an 18650 charger? At the risk of going back a few years, and plenty of people will have one:

Because you only want it for shotgun range - the head of a 501b torch is not much wider than the torch battery tube. It would'nt take a lot of tape wrapped round the back end of it to make it naturally aim say about 100 yards ahead of you, assuming a couple of turns of tape wrapped around the barrels too would not put you off your aim. You'd get eyeshine further than that but the beam won't penetrate as far as some of the larger head torches.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UltraFire-50 ... 1174250394 has a remote tail cap switch with it too.

Or if you are prepared to seek out much longer screws for the barrel mount:

Thanks for the info.
The mount to the bottom barrel is sorted with a weaver rail clamp, just need to sort a suitable lamp with a QD ringmount.

I use a Deben Tracer on my semi auto, but it looks like the Stinger would fit your use better.
