        I was going to wait until I actually received it before posting, however Robert’s Thread about them raising prices got me thinking to go ahead and do a preliminary post.

        The price increase shouldn’t effect this as its a clearance sale item.

        Mk7 Battle Light

        Handheld or Integrated Shotgun Light
        MSRP was over $200, but we’re selling the last few in our inventory for $56.99.
        Get two or more for $45.00 each! Add to your cart, then use the discount code MK7 when you checkout.


        The compact, ergonomic design of this 350-lumen mini-light makes it the perfect tactical shotgun light. A shotgun end cap attaches directly into the magazine tube and replaces the factory spring cap.

        Weight 4.1 oz.
        Submersible to 3 meters
        Item No. 9075 – Remington 870/1100/1187
        Item No. 9076 – Mossberg 500
        Item No. 9077 – Beretta 1301
        Item No. 9078 – Benelli M4/Nova

        At 350 lumen it is really kinda old school, but Steiner makes really bulletproof products in my experience.

        For a shotgun that doesn’t have extended magazine tube or a SBS this seems like a bargain at this price point or even as a handheld backup.

        With extended magazine tubes it maybe a bit of a reach for activation with integrated push button switch and no remote option. However as we classify Shotguns as a niche item or backup this may still have value.

        The simplicity of design, mounting, and use seems strong and a Steiner product in th $50 range is exceptional in theory.

        I almost purchased a used one on eBay for $75 recently, glad I waited. ;-)

        No idea how long these will last, but thought it maybe if interest.

        Will post more when it arrives and a detailed review will follow.

          One thing about companies like Steiner, they don’t scrimp on packaging! ;-)

          It’s not a Pelican case, but way above average.

          Pictured below is the Remington 870/1100/1187 replacement endcap/adapter.

          Fit and finish is outstanding.

          Picture below is Mk7 mounted on a Remington 870.

          Will post more details once I’ve had a opportunity to run it through some drills.

            My impression is at this clearance price it is truly an outstanding WML with minor limitations.

            Pro:
            Time will tell, but Steiner’s products are generally long lasting.

            350 Lumens is sufficient for most shotgun uses.

            Center of beam is sufficiently close to POA/POI with Buckshot.

            Quality is second to none.

            Con:
            Manipulation of on/off button is a bit of reach and could be a problem for those of smaller stature.

            On/off button has no momentary setting.

            350 Lumens is a bit old school by today’s standards.

            Use:
            While it lacks a momentary function, by clicking light on them depressing button a second time and holding it down it replicates a momentary function turning off as soon as second depression is released. While not as intuitive as a momentary it works easily enough.

            With minimal familiarity it could function as a defensive/offensive WML though I think it’s best use would be for taking game animals at night where it’s legal.

            As a handheld light it is decent and easily works with the Harris technique or if you need a bright utility light.

            No flickering during shooting observed, though I only have around 25 standard OO Buck rounds through it using the Remington 870 vice my 1100. The 870’s recoil is much more intense so it’s a better test platform.

            It certainly isn’t the most high speed item I own, but it works. ;-)
