So im Australia you cant have over 1mw laser but you can import the module and make it yourself. Im going to buy this $16.43 - 50mW 532nm Green Laser Module (3V 11.9mm) - Flashlight Parts and Tools and im going to put it in this flashlight case $10.90 - C6 DIY Cree LED Flashlight Full Casing/Shell with Driver Pill (2*CR123A/1*18650) - Flashlight Parts and Tools. The module has a button on it to turn on the laser but i was wondering how i can hook it up so when i click the button on the back of the torch it will turn the laser on.

That kit if for a different host though.

you MAY be able to remove the internal pill that's in the host, and use this heatsink Cree C6 Heatsink

you'll have to remove the pill inside the host to get your green module to fit, but then it should leave you enough room for 1x CR123 battery.
You'll also have to solder a wire on each side of the button to override it so that you can use the tailcap switch on the flashlight for the on/off mode.
