Have you checked the voltage of your batteries?

Do you have a bench PSU you could try it on?

no dear you'll have to put multimeter in Amp range in series to circuit. if switch terminals r exposed, just turn off and put both probes on switch terminals, one each. laser will light and u'll get the reading.

You're doing something wrong. There's no way a red diode is drawing 6V. Draw a diagram for us.
