The dollar store sells toy pistols with lasers? I'll have to look for one or else just strip one out of a cheap laser pointer.
Can you expand on how you built the battery holder mechanism?
The toy laser pistol, engraved as “Lazir”, was the best laser light for the money.
The battery holder is just a small plastic box deep enough to accommodate three watch batteries. The batteries are forced against contacts by a spring like any typical battery holder. I didn’t care for the look of the holder which came with the toy pistol, so I scratched up a new one in black plastic… but you could just use the one that comes with the toy. I robbed the contacts and spring (with the wires already attached) from a scrap AA battery holder. I took a pic before installing it but it’s kind of blurry.
