I'm a new owner of a FN SLP Mark I, and would like to mount a flashlight sometime in the near future on my shotgun. Could you possible steer me in the right direction on what type of mounting hardware I'll need to buy and where.
I had a mounting ring that allowed me to mount a mini mag light - but I think if you use that part I listed above, and put something like a TRL1 or a M3 light on it - it would work better. Those are handgun lights, so they are small yet bright.
I did the barrel attachment light thing in the 1990s. It does work, but depending on hos much disassembly you do to clean the gun after using it, I had to take the damn thing off a lot. And, it will rub the finish off of where it is attached.
Using the rail attachment worul work better...
But yea, Tacstar probably has something you could use if you really wanted to.
:grin: I'm looking at FN 2008 catalog they have a MIL-STD 1913 mounting tri-rail with 3 rails one on bottom, one on the right , and one on the left that attaches to the magazine tube. The part # for the SLP is 3088929876 the mark I's # is 3088929878.
Hi, I'm new.. have FN BHPs and a new FN SLP MK 1.. I love it, darn thing feeds everything I offer it, including Estate brand birdshot, slugs and various 3 " turkey loads and 00 buck loads
I have a Tac Star Sidesaddle reload holder, 3 point sling and heads-up holo sight. It's my zombie wars gun 8)
What I really want and have been told would be out soon is an official FN forearm with a picatinny rail for mounting a light. I have a Streamlight M3X light just waiting, the same light I use for for my open carry handgun, a Glock M22 (My BHPs are my CCWs)
In the meantime where would a mere mortal obtain an FN catalog with these rail mounts and such? I would at least like to see them, although I don't like clutter up top that obscures vision. That's how the zombies sneak up on you
I spoke with a representative on the phone over at fnh and he said it was supposed to have been released last month but they had a problem with the manufacturer (which is weird because I would've figured THEY were the manufacturer). Something about the screws that hold the rail to the magazine tube. Now looking like December.
Looking forward to the tri rail extension over a clamp on style.
Do you think it is likely these will be available any time in the next few months?
Also what about the pistol grip stock that is available on the "tactical" model? That model appears to have the tri rail extension and pg stock. It would be nice to upgrade to both accessories. I haven't seen that tactical stock mentioned anywhere though.
