The Magpul forend opens up limitless possibilities.^ My 870 still wears their first-LED-generation light (it's not my primary HD gun, and my home and property is rather modest)..... I really haven't even felt the impetus to revamp, although I really should...
Prior to the modern generation of pic-rail and M-LOK enabled forends, we were really hard-pressed to be able to find anything else that offered anywhere near as much light output as a direct-fit replacement. Instead, folks would have to get more creative, with items like the GG&G endcap ring, the Elzetta ZSM, or the L&M Enterprises magazine-tube clamp mounts.
Streamlight racker. Love mine.
Yep, everyone has what they like. Me personally I really dislike pistol or vertical grips. On a shotgun they are really something I dislike. That's just me, and it's probably one reason why I have yet to buy an AR lol.All good brother. Everything ain't for everybody. You couldn't give me one. I'll stick with the Magpul.
I put a vert grip on the 500 when I got the Magpul forend. I almost immediately removed it and it's in a drawer out on my shed along with about 5 A2 pistol grips, the stock Mossberg 500 forend and other unused stuff.Yep, everyone has what they like.

Well, how ironic. After literally hundreds and hundreds of rounds one of the mounting screws on my cheap Chinese shotgun light failed today. I had no problems with the pressure witch or the light, just the mount. Nevertheless I took the whole thing off. Now I have a handy hand held flashlight.I apologize that this isn't on-topic, but inside the thread, a few of us had drifted-off a bit into the shotgun world with talk of the Surefire and Streamlight shotgun forends.
Found this article on Pew Pew Tactical just today that had a very nice comparison of the two, in their current iterations: https://www.pewpewtactical.com/streamlight-tl-racker-surefire-dsf-review/
