Default Keltec KS7 Flashlight Setup

I want to add a flashlight to my KS7 so I can use it for home defense. Anyone have any ideas or examples of a flashlight mounted to a KS7 that doesn't ruin the slim profile of the KS7 which one of the main reasons for going with a KS7 instead of a KSG.

I've started to go with a USB rechargeable flashlight/laser combo that is designed for rail mount on a PISTOL. Fairly cheap on ebay (under $50 for a green laser model).

Just attach wherever there's a convenient rail, they are fairly compact and light compared to any flashlight I've used previously. Not sure how well they will hold up to shotgun recoil, but I'd guess they would be adequate.

No thicker than a typical handgun (about an inch), so shouldn't change the profile unless you mount it on a side rail (which I've done on a couple rifles, still doesn't stick out TOO much).

I ran across that KS7, thinking about adding it to the collection sometime, seems like a good HD option!

That's a really good idea. I'll look at handgun mounted lights which would be much more streamlined. I'm pretty sure they should be able to handle shotgun.

Take a look at the Olight handgun units. Especially the ones with magnetic charging. Bright. Affordable and very handy. Otherwise, the Inforce WML units aren't bad either, especially the older ones (don't need super bright for indoor use).
