I managed to snag a new Mossberg 590a1.  My first shotty.   I’ve yet to get a chance to strip and clean it let alone get to the range it with but I’m already looking at upgrades.  While it can be for HD, it won’t be my go-to, so I want to keep it simple for now. Mainly a sling and a light.  

For the light I thought the Streamlight racker seemed like an interesting idea. Wasn’t sure if it is a gimmick.  Has anyone uses it?   Surefire has something similar but it’s a lot more money.  With both options I’m concerned with how for back and underslung they are and barrel shadow.

For sling I was looking for a two-point QD.  I have blue force gear vickers sling on my ARs and wanted something similar. Not sure the best way to add QD to the 590a1.  Looks like ggg and magpul both have options for the front. For the rear ggg also has an option but it seems to stick out quite a bit.  Getting the magpul stock, which has a QD, could be an option though seems silly to replace a stock just for a QD socket.

I've done it.  The original stock on my M4gery was a basic Magpul MOE, but when I decided I was going to adopt QD for all my rifles, I upgraded the stock to one with QD studs and a locking bar that snugs up the stock.  Keep the sling simple, it's just a shotgun.

You could drill and tap the stock for a QD stud or a sling swivel,  There are also slip on butt pads with sling loops.  Lots of options.

The flashlight I bought at Tractor Supply is surprisingly good.  It's durable, rechargeable and comes with a tail switch if you like that sorta thing.

$ 80  bucks for the 850 lumens seems like a good deal

Yeah I agree, after thinking about it for more than a few seconds:  15% more light at 33% more cost.  Midway has the 1000-lumen one for $118
