Introduction: DIY Efficient Laser Target Sighter

This is a fast Instructable where you can use any laser pointer for your .22 Caliber Gun or any other long barreled hand guns or rifle not higher than .22. Or for all of those AEG (Airsofters out there)

Materials Needed:
Your gun of course. mine was a Taurus Model 970 Taurus USA

8" Black Multi Color Wraps Strap from [http://www.radioshack.com Radioshack] Product Catalog 278-1676 $2.99
or any strap you can get/find.

35mW Green Laser pointer from techlasers.com $99 Infiniti Green Laser Pointer

You can get the higher wattage version from their site. The higher the wattage the meaner the pointer in looks.

Step 1: Of Course You Need the Laser I Bought Mine From Techlasers

This is my laser I bought from techlasers.com infiniti 35mw hehehe, first I removed the gold leaf pen holder. For the switch you can remove the laser case and make the contact to always on by covering it with aluminum foil, be very careful with this because it might damage the switch permanently and void the warranty if its new, or you can use a black electrical tape wrap around the switch.

Step 2: This Is What the Wire Strap Look Like

Purchase the black strap to match the techlasers laser black case, use a cardboard cutter to cut exactly how long do you need from the strap.

Step 3: The Gun With the Laser Hehehe Accurate As Far As You Can See :-D

Here is the techlasers mounted on the long barrel of my hand gun :-D, adjust the wrap as tight as possible or you can put additional holder eg. cloth if you are wary of scratches in your laser :-D.

You can also used another wrap as long as it can hold your laser tightly.

Packing tape maybe :-)

Adjust the laser until you can see thats its straight enough or the dot is right on the target.

    So do u have to hold the laser button while trying to fire or does it stay on

    nice but wodent the shock wave from the gun going off break the laser my suggestion is get a stronger laser pointer

    In case this hasn't been said yet. High powered lasers like the one shown in this instructable are VERY dangerous. You can easily blind someone with it. 35mW is overkill for a laser sight. I haven't seen any professional laser sights over 5mW

    Have fun with your lasers and be safe

    I totally agree, dangerous for air-soft, paint-ball...
    but if you were pointing a real gun at an intruder/robber/murderer/etc... I doubt you would be worried about their eyesight for after you shoot them...

    I still wouldn't be inclined to use a high powered laser. 5mw is more than enough for home defense. If you end up not killing the robber, you run the risk of getting sued. Also, you run the risk of accidentally blinding an innocent bystander. There is also the risk of the laser bouncing off something and hitting you in the eyes. The robber could have a shiny button on their shirt, or a shiny necklace. The risks of using a high power laser outweigh any possible advantage. I am also not sure what advantages you would get from a high power laser.

    Accepted, and nice name "purplemutant" - "Purple Guy"...

    Title could be somewhat misleading, I thought you were going to assemble a laser sighter, not strap it to a gun.

    Seconded. If you need instructions to do this, you shouldn't be trusted with any type of gun.

    hahahah instructables are made by everyday objects so be kind, its my first instructables. Next I will make a better instructables
