Trying to build a laser gun. No, not a toy or a replica. A real f***ing laser.

    The problem is I don't know what brand of laser this guy uses!

    I saw other vids that claim it can be done on a Radio Shack laser, but the problem is the Radio Shack brand doesn't have a screw that tightens (which would mean maximum power output has been set).

    Has anyone ever done a laser mod, or is familiar with it?

    I want a laser gun so I can run around town screaming "IM CHARGIN MAH LAZER!!! SHOOP-DA-WOOP!!!"

    Can't you just do that anyway, with a Master Replica lightsaber or some other prop?

    While it is true that I can still run around town screaming "IM CHARGIN MAH LAZER!!! SHOOP-DA-WOOP!!!", I doubt a prop will fulfill my pyrophile desires.

    You do also understand that lightsabers don't need to be charged, only blasters do?

    Blasters have clips, and lightsaber DO need to be charged.

    I'm determined as Hell in trying to remove the top off of my red Class IIIA Radio Shack laser pointer.

    I might as well just buy a more powerful module and replace the one in there.

    Any help? Come on. You can't tell me that there aren't any nerds here who are interested in this sort of thing.
