You’ll be able to easily slip it into your shooting kit.
Two Power Modes
Most weapon light lack support for different light modes. Fortunately, SureFire DSF-870 WeaponLight for Remington 870 supports this feature.
It comes with two light modes namely High and Low.
When set to High mode, the light ejects a powerful white light of 600 lumens for a total of 1.5 hours tactical runtime.
If you choose the Low Mode, you’ll enjoy a light output of 200 lumens for maximum 3 hours.
Switching between these modes is done using h extremely easy to operate ambidextrous switch system.

From the simple fact that the polymer used to make this forend is lightweight: it does not weigh down your weapon. This ensures that your quest for precise shots is met without any issues.
The forend is textured to ensure tight and secure hold when mounted to your Remington 870 handgun.

Well, it prevents weather elements such as moisture dust and other debris from finding their way into the light system. Therefore, you can employ the weapon light in different weather conditions without worrying about losing its functionality.
Extremely Easy to Use
The weapon light is operated using the ambidextrous switch system. This is a large tactile switch that supports both momentary-ON and constant-ON modes of activation.
This allows all the right and left handed shooters to precisely control the light. The switch is very easy to operate. Its location is also strategic in that you can access it even when you’ve mounted the light on your gun.
If you want to select the LED output mode, simply activate the light in Constant-ON mode and then press the output mode selector switch until you get the mode (either High or Low) you wish to your light to.
Note that you can switch the set output mode to Momentary-ON mode or leave it in the Constant-ON mode. In whichever case, the weapon light maintains the set light output level until you reset it.
