Green laser for under $40 from a US store... hmm...

The only place I can think of for cheap green lasers is DX, but they have slow shipping.

Maybe someone will be able to help you, but I can't think of anywhere that fits those requirements :-/

You really wont get a green laser for under $40 dollars in the US. If you want a <5mW greenie, try the Lyra-C from LaserGlow. They are 59 dollars without shipping. They are not in the US, rather, in Canada, which is close enough, they also have fast shipping. Good Luck! If you want a higher powered laser, you'll have to fork out for an X from NOVAlasers.

Shipping from DX takes like, a month. Yeah it's long, but it's free shipping, so yeah. Don't buy from e-bay. They are scams and are rarely up-to-spec.
