My preference in this case would be to try and utilize the pulse rifle aluminum muzzle parts. It has a fitting appearance for use on the M-41 and it appears from your images that it will not take too much work to utilize these parts. This may or may not be possible depending on weather or not this assembly is long enough to accept the focal length necessary to gain optimum long range characteristics from this lens/IR LED combination. I have no experience with the Laser Challenge PRO optics. How does this lens compare in diameter to the standard V-2 tagger lens? I have used the TSAL-6100 in a number of custom CTDYNE taggers with optic assemblies that were built from scratch. In doing so I have found that changing the IR LED does sometimes have an effect on focal length. Obtaining the dimension for the proper focal length for the components you what to use is key in my opinion. Especially since you have gone to the effort of designing, fabricating and installing a booster board to drive the IR LED at an enhanced current rate. I tend to get a little carried away when fabricating custom taggers so the proper focal length probably is not as critical as I make it out to be, but I figure that if you have gone to all the effort to build a tagger of this quality, why do a half ass job on the all important optic assembly. First thing I would do is to find out what the focal length is for this lens/IR LED combination. Then you will have a better idea if the aluminum pulse rifle muzzle assembly is actually long enough to contain these components. If you need additional info on how I do this I can supply this data. Once you have this dimension you may find it necessary to add an extension to the muzzle assembly. Just how much room do you have behind the front plate of this tagger?
