Is there a fairly simple way to mount a laser above/below a barrel that would be adjustable for zeroing in the gun?
3 spring loaded screws would allow left/right up/down adjustment.
Only 2 adjustment springs are required. The third mount point can be fixed.
Correct. (as usual)
Have you made such an animal?
I played with reflector telescopes for a while. The reflector mirror is mounted and adjusted in this fashion. I haven't played with sights on anything yet.
Er... just buy one complete with mountfor under 20 bucks?
Telescope starfinders use three screws set at 120 degrees to each other. This set up takes a little getting used to for adjustment (trickier than a 2 axis zeroing), but it's very solid, with no springs to bounce around.
As a method, it has virtues worth looking into.
Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?
It looks nice.
Is it adjustable?
It doesn't say specifically but I'm guessing that's what the two hex bolts are for
The red ones are difficult to see during a bright day.
You will like the green much better.
Check out this one:
I purchased one to make drawngs for it.
Moonbogg has this sight on his hybrid cannon.
Personally, I think a red dot ($30?) is a much better idea. Regardless of the dot color it is darn hard to see in bright daylight so a projected dot just doesn't work all that well. The red dot doesn't project the dot, it's an optical sight.
You can buy a weaver rail (~$10) and epoxy/screw/nail/bubbly gum it to your barrel. The red dot has internal alignment screws and as long as the rail is close to being parallel to the barrel, you can dial it in.
Green laser dot is very visible during the day..
With a red dot sight you can't fire from the hip and still hit something either..

Can't ask for a better compliment!!
Sure you can, just mount a tiny video camera in line with the sight that feeds to a optics display mounted to your glasses so that you can see what you're pointingatno matter where you are looking in relation to the gun...
But I don't think it'll be within budget...

In my experience...
Regardless of projected or not, a red dot is all but impossible to see during the day.
depends on power. A laser from my infrared thermometer is useless for more distance than 50', 25' in broad daylight. I can see my 100mw anywhere.
Do you mean a Red Dot sight? I have no problems with mine in bright sunlight. Plus, even with my crappy eyes I can always see the dot since it's only a couple inches from my eye.
It is true though that a Red Dot won't help for firing from the hip. On the other hand, the Red Dot doesn't notify the target ... so it's much easier to sneak up on that barn you're shooting at.
