I just ordered one of these for my shotgun (Rem 870):

Haven't got it yet, pretty excited....

That being said, Surefire and Streamlights are the most popular.

Default Lots of choices

Streamlight TLR
Surefire X300
Olight PL1

Are all dedicated weapon lights for rail attachment.

They are pricey but Surefire makes a replacement hand guard with X300 built into it.

Personally I like this setup for my Mossberg 590 from Magpul:

I added a rail section and attached my Surefire X300.

I am a streamlight guy.

TLRs for the handguns
Protacs for the Rifles.

Not sure how much your willing to spend, the above options are all good. If money is tight try a cheap one to try before finding what you really want and spending big $.

Surefire.

On my shotgun, I use their forend light. Rugged, intuitive controls, reliable.

I have Streamlights and Surefires. Using them both and comparing I prefer the fit and ruggedness of the Surefires. I am buying one of those Steiner's for by Mossberg 500 - great price.
