Laser For Pistol...Possible Scope?

Hi. So, to start of, I don't know what AEG of GBB means (I know, should be asking the the "Newbie Tank", is what I think its called), and I am not really here to ask, I will ask in the "Newbie Tank", this is just a heads up if I don't use proper airsoft grammar, so, sorry if I don't.

So, I have had a hard time finding laser pointers for my gun (Colt Double Eagle Series 90), and I want to know where I can get one.

This is my gun...
http://s648.photobucket.com/albums/u...irsoftGun2.jpg

Will any laster pointer fit this, because the ones I have found on the "net" are I think for fitting onto PPK type of guns (at least that is what I have seem them on). So, I know, possible stupid question.

Also, wouldn't that be neat if there was scopes for pistols...or is there...?
Lol, I know, you are probably thinking (that is a really dumb question), but I have seen clip-on ones that go on really cheap battery-powered guns, and they are non-working, just for show, but I was wondering if there were real ones on the internet...

So, sorry if any of these questions sound stupid, I am a total noob, and also, sorry if I am posting in the wrong area, (if I did, I greatly apologize).

Thanks.

Screw the laser.. spend the money on a good pistol. You can't use lasers in games anyways.

Not sure about ones made for your gun, but I like to make my own things if I can't buy them. Take it from me, it doesn't look as good, but it works. I have already tried to build a laser sight for one of my pistols, but the $8 gun broke eventually, and I can't seem to find a way to make if for my Deagle. Anyways, if you're into hands on stuff, try getting a laser pointer and hook it up to a switch, keep the button down, make a plexi-glass shell, and you'll be on your way. I'm probably just my breath though. (Or whatever, you know what I mean)

Lol, k dude, ha. Ya, I'm eventually gonna' get another gun, I just started, so I thought I would get the second best I could buy (on the shelf, it was eather a $19.90, and $20.00, and $40.00 (mine), and a $72.00, and I didn't see much point in the most expesive, because like I said, I just started out, or there was a shotgun.).

But yeah, they arn't? That makes sense, because it would be like cheating anyway...

Ya, I'm just looking to "pimp" out my gun .

Thanks.

Thanks man, you don't happen to know about how to attach a momentary switch to a laser pointer, do you?

why would it be like cheating?

secondly, it would probably be best if you just saved up for a real airsoft gun that can actually perform.

also, please fill out your profile such as age, location etc.

Do you mean one of those button switches that you press down? I guess any switch will work, all it needs to do is stop the circuit. Anyways, usually all laser pointers have the battery compartment inside the device, which is where you would need to get into. One wire needs to be connected to the spring, where the other is attached to the bare metal at the end, with the threads. The wire from the spring goes to the right side of the batteries, the batteries go to the switch, and the switch goes to the metal. Pretty simple. I guess.

Honestly, I'm not the one that said it was illegal, and I just said it might be, because its kind of aiming for you...I didn't mean illegal for in a game, just cheating for the person who is using it...Do you get that? xD

Ya, the button turns things on or off depending on what you are using it for...in this case, I want it to turn it on.

No. The reason you can't use them in game is because lasers can blind you.

1) Lasers aren't allowed because they cause occular damage.

2) A good pistol is about $300. And any decent accessory is going to cost you more than what you paid for that gun. Hell.. even the frame mount to mount a scope on it is going to cost you more than that gun.

Lol, no, dude, see what I am saying: I don't know about the games, I have never played one, I am a noob...I said for personal use, you are using something else to aim, rather than using the cross-haires, which, honestly, I think is harder...And, no duh it can blind people...Sorry if I come off as a "prick" but I thought I already explained myself, I am not refering to a real game, I am refering to just shooting it in a backyard.

I'm going to say this once....

1) Look at my comment about the eye thing with another guy, about I'm NOT TALKING ABOUT A REAL GAME, JUST PERSONAL USE...

2) I'm sorry, but I am not going to buy a $300 gun, when this is my first real time having one in my hands for a long period of time...why would I get a $300 one, rather than getting one that I can use for a bit as a "beater-up gun" until I get better.

3)I found lasers for $10.00 Canadian...Go Figure.

Oh yeah, sorry, I said in a reply to another comment, "why would I get a $300 gun, when I am just starting out...I would prefer a "beater-up gun" that I can use for a bit, until I can be good at airsoft/aiming, etc". (That was something like what I said to another guy). Also, I'm not an expert, I am a noob, but for me, this gun performs just fine, and where I live, there is not really a place to buy one, and on the net, I will be looking at about, anywhere from $300-$400 (thats even on CANADIAN sites), and I play guitar as my main hobbie...I could put a down-payment on a guitar...hell, I could buy a guitar with that money.

I'm also only going to say this once:

1) Lose the smartass attitude if you want any answers around here.

2) Be aware that this is an airsoft forum, catering to airsoft players, who use realistic imitation firearms to partake in the game of airsoft. We don't know a lot -or care much for- cheap clearsoft pieces of crap, because they're completely usless for our purposes. Even collectors who don't play -they don't want the clearsoft stuff because it looks like ass and functions nothing like the real ones do, whereas proper airsoft pistols do. Same thing goes for accessories. We don't know much about any accessories that fit on clearsoft crap, because it's cheap and useless. Not to say some around here don't know anything about it.. just don't count on it.
