So it's a fact: my Pulse Rifle is and will always be a work in progress. After working on the Mag Well Cover and now the Weaver Rail mount, I've really started to think more about working with Alluminum. Many of the metal parts on the Pulse Rifle are made from this material as well and... you know me... I got to thinking.
When I first made the Pulse Rifle, I wanted it to have a good range. The promise that the Laser Challenge P.R.O. LTS lens had (tested at 750 ft) coined with the fact that the lens itself isn't that big was appealing. Since I wanted to use the Grenade Launcher housing for the lens, size was a big factor. I managed to fit the LTS lens, cone, and a modified cover to fit into the space where the Pulse Rifle Kit's barrel was supposed to go. I set the parts from the Kit aside in case I ever needed them.
It's not that the Pulse Rifle isn't shooting good, but I'm now interested in trying to see if I can't improve that. So I started looking into the idea of using one of my thousands of Laser Challenge Lenses that would fit inside the original Alluminum housing for the PR Kit.
Below are pictures of my experiments and possible ideas for accomplishing this.
The Bare cover. To the left, the Orange/Black part was the old Muzzle Cover. The Dary Gray part is the original cover.

The LTS Lens test fitting in the back half
Looks pretty nice to me!
Now there are a few things to address. Part of the reason I'm doing this is to try to make the front look as legit as possible. I know I've broken the rules on "legit design" for the PR because of adding the scope, but I still think the original part looks a lot better than what I had done. Also, I think I can get a better performing lens in there mounted more accurately. And before you say it, yes I know this would eliminate my Orange Tip. I am already working on an Orange Tip plastic cover to go on top of the top barrel for safety reasons. I will remove this when playing Airsoft (legal in my state) and when playing laser tag where orange tips aren't a big issue.
THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOU!
Even though I've found a way to mount the lens in the Pulse Rifle, I have absolutely no experience with building a lens arrangement (which is something I would like to do. Either that or I'll just have to figure out a way to mount the original Cone behind the LTS Lens. Any suggestions as to what I should do in this situation would be extremely helpful and valued!
