That's pretty slick looking. I have a friend who wants me to make him one for the classesand workshops he teaches, but I may just have him buy one of yours instead.

you know whats funny, i actually was thinking the same thing. its a 20mw greenie from DX, but i went back looking for it after i ordered 3 of them and i couldnt find it. There is another 20mw on there that looks somewhat like it, but it doesnt have that smooth end cap...

I would like to do $160 (this including pointer, and batteries) +$10 if he wants a charger. It runs on 2 Ultrafire 3.7v.

willing to work with price though if that doesnt work with him.
