Introduction: Add a Laser Sight to Your Airsoft/air Rifle.

Picture of Add a Laser Sight to Your Airsoft/air Rifle.

this is my first instructable so go easy. i will show you how to make a laser sight which can easily be added to your airsoft weapon or air rifle, it only takes about 10 mins to make and its real easy so try it!

you will need;

- laser pen
- electrical tape
- battery (9v)
- 'push to make' switch
- insulated wire
- rifle.

Step 1: Get Your Pen and Crack It Open!

im not sure how i did it but its not too hard. if all else fails just grind into it.

Step 2: Re-wire.

Picture of Re-wire.

get your other components and re wire it. there is a little piece of gray metal on the top of the pen, this acts as the contact for the battery you will need to attach a wire here and a wire to the spring. after that attach the battery to your wires via switch and test it out.

Step 3: Go Shootin'

tape it all up good and proper, taping down the switch on the pen to complete the circuit (your using your own switch now) and attach it to your weapon! good luck, see you in the forest (yes ill see you.....)

Not of much use without being adjustable.

 That a CM023 MP5?


You can just buy them... But i'd prefer to make my own!
Good first ible!

 how did u make the switch this tutorial is really vague sorry can u please contact me and tell me how to do it in more detail

struckbyanarrow (author)2008-03-25

your diodes gunna be zapped in about 2 seconds with the 9v try wireing a hell lotta resistors or you just wasted 10 minutes of your time

i sould have read the comments first, ive zapped two lasers now, that killed the diode, so great instructable but you owe me $10, lol jk (i spent more like $7).

Well did you try more than one laser model? I bet yours is very different from his... Im not saying you should go and try again, im just giving an idea of what may have gone wrong.

mailman575 (author)Gibson_SG_952009-11-29

 Lol, Nope... Its the 9 volt that fried EVERYTHING... Ive got a pack for 3 AA's...
The 9 volt was Frying everything.... As mine was a low power it wasnt capable of converting the volts.... id have to buy more than 30 capicitators for a 9 volt to work...

sorry but ive been using this for ages and it hasnt changed anything, the long wire and the switch i added on wil drain alot of the power. its a laser not an LED the laser can withstand more power.

soon young padawon soon

his question does make sense, but you should try maybe a C or D size battery. Just sucks there not squarish

Colonel88 (author)2009-11-04

9 volt battery will fry your 4.5 volt laser pointer.

Gotta love electrical tape!!

PuddleOfMudd25 (author)2009-06-18

Instead of having a big 9v battery haning off your gun, it would be better if instead you made a container that goes on the rails out of plexiglass or something. I'd do it if I didn't already rui my laser :P

bighead5454 (author)2009-05-07

forget the laser i want the knife bet it could do more damage

frikkie (author)2009-04-18

Why not keep the laser as it is with its batteries and just maybe try a way to mount it beneath the barrel of the gun.But if you can replace the switch with one that you just press once then it on.And you press once then it off. Im also trying to come up with an idea for an laser mount in with which I can adjust the "dot" angle to more accurately hit the target.I want to try and make it in such a way that it can be clipped onto or off the barrel ,of my GAMO it shoots 1000fps.

Father Christmas (author)2009-02-05

no offense, but this could have been better. you should have dissembled the body, mounted the laser in a hole(that you make) in the front, and have it sticking out a bit for adjustments. otherwise, i liked it. i think, though, ill jsut stick with buying one with a RIS clamp for 5$

i added you to the airsoft guide

Patented (author)2008-09-20

I try few days ago but it dont shoot where the laser point :'(

survivor569 (author)Patented2008-09-21

you have to line it up, what i do is clamp it into a vice about 20-25 yards away from a door, put a piece of paper on the door and shoot at the paper. then line the laser up to the hole and it should be accurate. try it 3/4 times to be sure you got it right.

Patented (author)survivor5692008-09-21

Oh thx you! I will try this!

thoraxe (author)2008-09-20

survivor569 (author)thoraxe2008-09-21

Mario1 (author)2008-04-24

well WTF?!?!? this is NOT an instructable you just write rewire your "instructable" has 3 steps for me that was NOT helpfull

absolute zero (author)Mario12008-08-16

because ure stupid......... basickly you tape the gutted lazer light to the gun, and add a switch, im not kidding my 9 year old brother could do it

absolute zero (author)2008-07-17

hmmm... if i HAD one id just tape a lazer lite 2 the side, good instructable tho, much better thn wut id do

i finnaly got a gun, i still really think just tapeing the lught to the side is a much better idea, but thats my opinion

=SMART= (author)2008-06-14

you should house all the electronics in a small box or a tube so it looks better, nice instructable though

paulm (author)2008-05-16

I favourited this as I ordered a cheap 5mw laser for this very purpose. its going on my S&W; M3000 because I have no credible way of aiming it otherwise. a question: how are you going to adjust it? wedge small bits of paper under it? or is there a methoed I am missing?

Landon Sullivan (author)paulm2008-06-09

I love smith & wessons...they make some pretty f'n awesome guns... such as the S&W; 4506.

survivor569 (author)paulm2008-05-17

i am planning to add a holder for it which will make it easy and secure but for now i just tighten the tape. lol.

Jr Hacking kid (author)2008-04-25

hay is that a cyma cm023 or cm027 or is it a utg or a tokyo mrui

hi, yes it is a cyma.

you should join these forums so you can learm more about airsoft

and heres Arnie's home page

thanks, i know arnies well. i got some mags from there for my pistol. thanks for the links but i think ill pass as im getting into air rifles more than bb guns now. peace!

Mattrox (author)2008-04-24

cool but what about sighting it? if it isnt properly sighted it will be a waste of time and money. you proberly need put ur gun a brace, put a thin board in front, then fire and point the laser onto the hole and it should be sighted
