Mounting lasers

Unread postAuthor: Mr.Russ » Sat Oct 06, 2007 4:55 am

alright, i hooked my laser up with a switch, and then cased it in some 3/4" electrical conduit and put a coupler on the end.. now i want to mount it to my gun.

I want to be able to move it so its accurate, then make it stay there and not move. would hose clamps be suitable to this? what else could i use?

here are some pics

I tried hose clamps but they didn't work so well for me.
Why not rig up a simple device so it sticks onto the gun, then you can move the laser up and down, left and right but tightening a screw to lock the laser in place.

It shouldn't be too hard

I used electricians tape to secure my laser to my BB rifle. Because electricians tape is a bit stretchy, I could "tune" the laser as so that it would point where my barrel did, after tuning it, I added more tape to keep it in place. Looks a tad bit messy, but works a charm.

Yeah, as Infernal Maveric said, Duct tape would work really well. I did that to mount a scope on one of my guns, and i works really well.
Duct tape would definitely do the trick.

bleck. you can always buy a laser that has adjustments. UTG sells one....... i have one on my airsoft GBB.

anyway, what i would do is mount it at the rear, and then have some bolts screwed into some wooden blocks to allow for adjustments.
