Steiner Optics – Mk7 Battle Light

I ran across something really cool during last week’s Warrior West in San Diego.  Steiner’s 350 lumen Mk7 Battle Light is designed to screw into the magazine tube of a shotgun replacing the factory spring cap.  Activation buttons are on either side.


Available for Remongton 870/1100/1187, Mossberg 500, Benelli M4/Nova, and Beretta 1301.

    Assumes the shooter is using the support hand up by the muzzle. Hopefully a remote activated tape switch will eventually be offered.

    I wonder how it holds up when the shotgun is used for breeching?

    Looks like Laser Devices 2014 product re-branded…
    One Steiner’s website, in the comments on the MK7 page, it says they have no plans to offer a remote switch.
    I like it because there is no great solution for a light on a Benelli M4….bummer this one just isn’t practical.

      Yes, early this year, Steiner bought Laser Devices.

      • Further clarification. LDI was purchased from Baretta who already owned Steiner. Steiner became the distribution channel for LDI, but both companies are under Baretta.

    That is the perfect accessory for the 870 Express that many folks keep behind a couch or headboard. Elegant solution that keeps the weapon slender and more stowable than clamped on or rail mounted white lights.

    Might be workable on the semiautos with short mag tubes if the switch can be indexed(thumb activation). Good luck running it on a pump though.

    @ $184 it’s a hard pass for me, great idea though, just not thoughtfully executed.
