So I threw this together with my 1911 airsoft gun and a 200mw red module.

I was at dollar general and I saw a 1911 with a red laser sight. I got the idea to use my heatsinked 200mw 638nm. I did all this without soldering and my first try resulted in the laser being angled from the barrel by 15 degrees or so. I got it aligned nearly perfectly ( the beam and dot with the iron sights.) I don't shoot air soft competitively so this idea just randomly came to me. I tried it right when it was starting to get dark and I was able to hit a coke can twice by just using the laser beam and dot. I could not believe how far a 638nm could go. I hit tree tops a 1000 feet away and i was still able to see the dot ( the setting sun was blocked by clouds.) Once it got dark I had no problem hitting a water gallon jug from 30 feet away just by using the laser. It's so well aligned I dunno if im ever gonna take it off. My DSLR had trouble picking up the beam , but i'm gonna get my tripod out and find my non SLR which sees red better and takes slow motion videos. I can't go outside as the temperature started dropping rapidly and there's a frost advisory. I don't want to get any condensation on the lens of the laser.

I made a battery pack for a sega nomad 2 years ago using a 12 volt li-on pack with 2 manual connects due to the nature of li-ons. It was stable enough to use and the way I made it allowed an a/c adapter to be hooked it up.


I fired 20+ shots and had no issue reloading or cocking it and i made the battery pack allinged so i could switch the laser off.

Also the glue gun wax is removable and it held good through my tests.

Yes it looks crazy but I connected it and made sure the clips wouldn't touch by insulating them with the wax.

I feel like i need to add for those that dont know or are new to lasers
1. don't ever user use something like this at air soft fight.
2. Don't mess around with it if you live in a urban or suburban area as the red dot makes people think it can be a real gun , espically if it's dark.
3. I live in a very rural area and have 500+ feet of woods to mess around with and all my neighbors own guns. I'm the only one that doesn't. They all know I mess with lasers and BB/airsoft guns. Heck my one neighbor flashed me with a defcoused green that they used to signal people at check points in other countries. ( I was like wtf someone else has a green laser.)
