Not what I was hoping for...

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, AL Written on May 4, 2011
I first noticed that the item lacked finish work. None of the edges had be ground down and thus it had metal burs and sharp edges which cut into the barrel of the shotgun as well as the shotshell tube and would have certainly scared a flashlight had I been able to mount one. Unfortunately I was not able to use the clamp to mount a flashlight due to the fact that the stated sizes on the manufacturers packaging was not consistent with the clamp in that packaging. I found the sizes to be inaccurate with multiple clamps. The product itself was very strong though; I attempted to bend the clamp in order to allow it to accommodate a one inch flashlight to no avail. It seems as though the metal was heat treated which made it very strong. In an attempt to make the clamp more universal the manufacture provides two sets of screws. The longer set of screws would have allowed it to clamp a greater variety of one inch items (i.e.- barrel, shell tube, flashlight, etc.) however, the additional screws were only a few millimeters longer and provided no additional help. I wish I could say that Ive used this clamp in the field for a number of months and this is my conclusion however, I was unable to even get the clamp to mount properly or securely. I have used other barrel clamps that were polymer based (and half the price) and have had great success over the years but would not trust my life to the TacStar clamp.

Avoid at all cost!!!

First off, this product was back ordered nearly two months (I don't even know how that could be possible, all it is, is stamped sheet metal). It is poorly made and has no finished qualities at all. The edges are sharp and pointed (will absolutely scar a shot gun barrel or flashlight). Worst of all, the 'sizes' that you can select simply are not true. I ordered two of these and neither were true to size by a long shot. The metal has been heat treated and is harden so there is no way to even bend it to make it close to the correct size I need. And on top of all that, they are WAY over priced. I use a molded plastic version on two of my other shot guns and they work great (and they even have a sling mount built on to the clamp screw) plus they are less than half the price and they are true to size. Fool me once shame on me...
Pros: Simple
Cons: Sizes are not correct/true, craftsmanship is sad to say the least, sharp edges, duct tape or a rubber band would work better...
Would recommend: No

TacStar Universal Barrel Mounts

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NC Written on December 4, 2009
I have been looking for the right light mount to finsih off my semi auto tactical gun project. Money was not a major issue, since this is my primary home defense firearm. I have looked at most all options of a SECURE & RELIABLE method to mount my light. There were many differnt desgins, all with much higher prices. This item holds it's own with any thing on the market. When you combine the low cost, high quality & utter simplicity of installation, this product is a 5 Star winner. Thanks to Optics planet for handling my back order with ease, as usual. I can understand why this is a hard item to keep in stock. Better get one while you can.
Pros: Price, ease of use, quality
Cons: Non...
