    Hi!
    I have not liked the cannon of Perceptor as well as some other things...
    But here´s a quick how-to for a replacement.
    ______________________________________

    You´ll need the following:


    *a cheap plastic pen
    *1 LED
    *2 small batteries (the button things)
    *some Duck-paper to combine the batteries
    *hot glue
    *a cap to cover the batteries
    *some very thin paper to prevent the LED to be turned on all the time

    Steps:
    *unscrew the gun from Perceptor

    *cut a cheap plastic pen, take out the chrome tip (will be placed in the shoulder hole)

    *use some Duck-paper to combine the batteries
    [​IMG]
    *place the LED into the tip of the pen with the batteries connected
    [​IMG]

    *Glue the lower part of the batteries onto the pen

    *place cap over batteries

    *use hot glue to connect the chromed tip of pen onto the pen
    *use red to recolor the pen...

    Have fun!

    To prevent the LED from the batteries being powered all time, I´ve used a thin piece of plastic:
