Mounting Torch to an O/U

Post by keenstalking22 » 23 Nov 2021, 7:32 pm

Hey guys, im looking for something like an Olight hunting spotlight to mount on my O/U and was wondering what mounting options there are.

Its a fine gun with blued barrels, do I just go with a magnetic mount and let it wear away or are there other options out there I could look at?

The Olight magnetic mount looks good tome and I have one. The magnets are coated to protect surfaces.

Please don’t post topics like this it reminds me of mobs on the stubble pre 1996 when I held a maglite under the Forend and worked it madly on an old battered Winchester 12 gauge pump

Put some tape around the barrels first, then mount over that to protect the surface.

The magnetic mounts have some covering so the won't scratch the barrel and they won't move much either to rub because the magnets are strong.
