I purchased one of these recently, and it is an ok way to mount a light on your Marlin.Wild West Guns - Accessories I found this a couple years ago. When it gets dark during bear season, it goes on the guide gun, and when I get up in the mornin without gettin etted by a bar, I take it back off till the next night. Not beautiful but in bear country I like a weapon mounted light.
I bought one of those for my Mossberg 500 18 1/2", the first was plastic but I can't remember the brand name. The plastic one just wouldn't be still- tried putting a small rag etc between the barrel/tube and the clamp but couldn't make it work- So i bought the Nebo above- works like a charm. I have a Nebo Redline attached now, this 500 is my bedside gun.I use one of these to hold a 1" diameter light to the mag tube on an 1894C. It is designed for shotguns so I cut a short piece if garden hose, split it and slipped it over the magazine before attaching the light.
These work too but don't dismount as easily.
