Introduction: 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.


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 Zeeshawnmarshall@yahoo.com

    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.

     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.
