Default Flashlight options for Mossberg persuader with heat shield

I'm trying to decide on a flashlight mount for my Mossberg persuader with the heat shield. My original heat shield spacer came out of place at the muzzle end and allowed the heat shield to move forward while firing. So right now the heat shield is off the gun and I want to get it back on. I was thinking about ordering a new spacer but I also want to get a good flashlight on my shotgun and was hoping there's a mount out there that would act as a spacer. What are you guys using?
you can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hand!

Here's mine. (see attachments)

This is a VERY solid setup once I got it dialed in. It places the light just ahead of the forend where you can work the button (swap out the tailcap) for momentary or full on with your extended thumb. Works for me!
I forget the specifics but will thrash around a bit and see what I can come up with.


Mount is Mesa Tactical Barrel Clamp w/picatiny rail - comment - the screws needed to be shortened to tighten sufficiently. Also, it is possible to clamp too tightly and bind the tube mag follower - suggestion, DON'T.

Light clamp is similar to this (many makers with similar product design)
Elzetta ZORM Tactical Flashlight Mount

Light is Surefire 6PX Tactical (2 CR123a batteries, aluminum housing, single output level) replaced tail-cap with momentary on/click-on to replace twist full-time on

Replacemnt tailcap for light - SureFire Z58 / Z59 Click-on Tailcap Switch

I use a Nordic barrel clamp that came with a pic rail section you can put on either side. I run a streamlight tlr1HL on it

If you have a pic rail on your gun or can mount one then a Streamlight TLR 1 is a good choice. Or the one with the laser is a real good option for a gun like yours as it gives you a point and shoot capability.

Rule #1 Liberals screw up everything they touch.
Rule #2 Whatever they accuse you of, they are already doing.
Rule #3 Liberals lie about anything no matter how insignificant.
Rule #4 If all else fails, they call you a Racist!

It's not how well you do what you know how to do,,, It is how well you do what you don't know how to do.
