Here is my reworked version of TOS phaser rifle (originally by BiankaW).
I redesigned the coils and I've added LED at the end of the rifle and also EL wire around the coils.
In the gripper I made the space for EL wire electronics and 2xAA battery holder and mini push switch. The parts are redesigned so you can use wooden rod (18mm diameter) instead printing the front part. The wooden rod can go through the top coil too to make the whole structure stronger.
Instead of the top thin rod/antenna I made a hole for the large nail (see pictures), this is to make it stronger as I know from experience that thiing 3D printed parts breaks easily.
To power LED I used thin enameled copper wire so it's barely visible.
I'm sure there are things to improve but in general I'm very happy how it come out.
