    Routing the remote switch for a weapon light?

    I am just wondering if some of you could possible show some pics of how you route the wire for the remote switch on your HD shotguns. I have the light, the switch and the mounting bracket, but I am not sure of the best way to route the wire.
    Also, do you prefer to have the light mounted under the magazine tube (flush) or swung up beside the tubes?

    Thanks, Ron

    First of all, what kind of shotgun are you considering? Is it the mossberg 500 you signature says? Gotta make sure wherever the pressure switch is mounted it won't get in the way when cycling the action if that is the case. I personally would swing it up to the side opposite my face, but that is just me.

    Adhesive velcro will do wonders. Nylon cable ties are also a good option.

    My TRL2 is mounted on my AR front side rail. I routed the cable under the rial covers and secured it to my vertical foregrip with a black cable tie.
    Works pretty well. I had to trim up the rail covers a bit to make room for the cable
