I am building a laser gun for pentathlon targets (also doing one). I would like to know how build a part of the gun and if I can count on a steady laser if it is attached to a motor.
The question is about the laser. I want it maybe attached to a small-(servo)motor to try to implement some cheat just for fun. Assuming the motor has a good torque, can I assume that the laser will not move (not the sightliest bit) when the motor is turned off? (I don't have any to test) This is for precision shooting, so small vibrations and a moving pointer would be really prejudicial. In case it does, what can I do to minimize the problem? Is it all about ordering the motor with the highest torque?
As you can tell, its sights are a fixed plastic point in the front, and an adjustable large back. There are two bolts, one on each side. One makes the sight higher or lower, and the other makes it point more to the right or left. How can such part be built with simple tools?
