Default Surefire m600df broke on benelli M4

I just emailed surefire to request to send it in for repairs. I have mounted a surefire m600df on an aluminum Magpul mlok mount. Today it just stopped working after firing buckshot. Should I change the mounting system to all polymer and wrap electrical tape around the flashlight to soften the benelli M4 recoil? I thought surefire was supposed to be strong. What is a good weaponlight that can handle the recoil of a benelli M4?

Default M600-DF

I'll have to keep an eye out for this. I recently installed the same light on my Benelli M1014 and as far as light mount I have the M600-DF on a IWC scout mount.

On the other hand Surefire will get you taken care but it is quite odd for that to happen.

I'm wondering if it's the tail switch or the light that failed.

Surefire has completed repairs and I have move it to my ar15, I guess the recoil of shotguns are too much for flashlights

They didn't really say anything other than provided me the tracking number and updated me on the repairs

My m600df died within 50 rounds of being mounted on a scar17. I went to surefire HQ and they said the head died and gave me a brand new unit. Have yet to try again

Surefires have a bad habit of not working when you need them. Unfortunately they look nice and have a high price tag but their quality and or functionality just isn't there..... I've dumped more surefires than I can remember.
Personally I prefer streamlights never had one fail or be dead when needed. They don't look as nice but just plain work when needed

What's a good one that can handle the violent recoil of a semiautomatic shotgun?

I run SureFire dedicated forends on my M1 super 90 and M590 with Malkoff drop in modules. The potted electronics of the Malkoff make them bomb proof.

I use an AVA tactical mount with a Surefire 6PX with a single click tailcap. Never had any problems or concerns.

Iíve not had any failures myself. But also owning both brands I have to say my impression of Streamlight products has been nothing but favourable. And their quality and bang for the buck makes them my go-to brand.
