Bringing this old thread back to life... kickstarter never worked out, because nearly any firearm accessory is against their policy (as well as other crowd funded sites). However, LaserMax finally created a green guide rod system with the new green diodes. LaserMax > goGreen
They don't have...
Yup, thats the one I was talking about, those pictures are the one you built for me, I absolutely love it, its my daily carry laser at the low 10mW, yet bright enough to enjoy, so I can use it whenever/wherever.
Thanks again for the build :D
I finally received more information from Avo Photonics, here is what they said:
"1. We’ll assume you mean the 1/e2 intensity diameter is within a spot of 1” radius at a distance of 25 yards
2. We’ll assume the ratio of the semi-minor axis (b) to semi-major axis (a) to be b/a >= 0.8
Re: Holographic Laser Warning Decals for Sale!
Got my stickers a few days ago, they're great, once again! One minor issue: I asked for the death star sticker to say "Class 5" rather than "Class V", but no big deal :p
Thanks again for the great, cheap, and good quality custom...
I don't post this to take away from Blord's offer, but to simply state I have a lower powered Osram build in Jayrob's stainless steel 10440 kit. Mine was built by LPF member Lazeerer, (not lazerer.com). Its around 10-15mW. I love it!
Again, I post this just to state a low powered build is...
Quick update on this:
Lasermax has not responded to me yet.
IPS will not be doing this due to the cost versus profit. They have actually talked with Lasermax in the past. IPS says the cost for to create a packaged diode with optics will be more than a customer would be willing to pay. IPS...
I thought I replied to this earlier, but apparently I didn't submit or something, anyway...
:thanks: for this info.
I have contacted IPS about creating a 450nm TO-38 package with built in optics. I am waiting for their next response. I'll post an update if I find out anything else.
Thanks for the reminder on the link TJ posted, I think that was just for comparison purposes of the module, but yes, T_Warne is correct. I am wanting blue, or green (although green is even less unlikely due to DPSS and such..) but anyway...
Also, I do not have the skills...
You make several good points.
Understood, its cool, I was just saying I would prefer click on/off.
I think I will try to contact LaserMax and see what they have to say. Thanks for your input on this.
This would be for personal defense/quick target acquisition/intimidation more so than target practice. I would prefer a click on/click off type switch, rather that momentary.
This is getting more complicated by the minute :(
I shoot .40, just for clarification on the powder issue.
You make some good points. This is something I would love to see done, and would be willing to pay someone to make it for me. However, I think spending $400 on a Lasermax and then modify it may not be the best path to take.
As far as keeping in clean, would a small hood sticking...
But would the module need to be that large if the diode is only set to 5mW or so? I know they are made to fit the aixiz lens and such, could a custom lens work, or would a tiny red lens work that they currently use for the 3.3mm diodes? since we're not trying to have maximum power, just minimal...
