I found this, and have asked the good people over at www.thehighroad.com the same question.
Does any one have one of these on their 870?
I am looking into setting up my 870 for home defense, looking for lights and other bolt ons i found this from shure fire. Is it worth the $ like the flashlights are, or does some one make the samething for less?

SureFire Integrated Forend Shotgun WeaponLight
This replacement forend includes a built-in nine-volt tactical light with an upgraded 1.625\" Millennium Series military specification Type III hard-anodized bezel/lamp assembly with Pyrex lens. Two separate switches are integrated into the forend: a pressure sensitive activation pad for momentary light use and a constant On/Off rocker switch. A MN10 high-output lamp assembly is standard, providing 125 lumens of light for one hour. The optional MN11 ultra-high output lamp assembly can also be installed, boosting output to 225 lumens for 20 minutes of runtime.
SureFire Integrated Forend Shotgun WeaponLights feature a shock-isolated bezel/lamp assembly and a machined barrier between the lamp and battery stick to prevent the battery stick from slamming into the rear of the lamp during recoil. Batteries within the battery stick are separated by a fiber washer and held within a plastic sleeve as further insurance against recoil-related failure.
Batteries - One SureFire lithium SF323AC 9.0 Volt with 10-year shelf life (contains three SureFire SF123 batteries separated by fiber washers and held together by a plastic sleeve)
Lamp assembly/Runtime - SureFire MN10 xenon gas-filled lamp assembly with 125 lumens output for 60 minutes, or 225 lumens for 20 minutes with optional MN11 ultra-high output lamp assembly
Construction - CNC machined aerospace-grade aluminum with MilSpec hard anodizing, impact-resistant polymer housing, Pyrex lens window for improved scratch and heat resistance, shock-isolated bezel.
Flawless white beam, always in focus
I have an older model on my 870. It is a great light. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. All weapons lights I have are Surefire.
As for anyone making something similar, I don\'t know of any incorporated into the forearm. But I don\'t know much of anything at all!
Let us know what you end up getting.
