V2 Firefly Project Revamp

Work has resumed on the V2 Firefly after nearly 2 years of use.  It's getting a bit of a facelift, both internally and externally.  Afrer it's proud owner brought it to me with aiming issues, I've decided to give it a facelift he'll have more trouble messing up.
V2 Firefly in it's original configuration.  
It's owner is one of the original founding members of the Omaha Laser Challenge Association.  He has made a name for himself utilizing a classic laser tag blaster called the "V2 Firestorm".  However, due to his larger size and nature of the game of Laser Challenge, players complained that they couldn't hit his torso-mounted sensor.  Over the years we have built custom equipment for him that still allows him to utilize the power of the Firestorm while still being able to be hit while he's firing.

His customized gear
The Power Switch has been completely replaced, there's a new Firing Indicator light, the Internal setup in general has been revamped and strengthened, and I'm trying to figure out how to best replace the reload switch.

Also in store for it is a new weaver rail / red dot scope.  I'm using lighter materials so as to not cause strain on itself so it won't break apart again, but still stay rigid enough to be accurate.

Here's a video of the internals and setup, as well as a visual representation of the work I've been doing to the trigger grip and weaver rail.
