Righty O, i started down the rabbit hole that is M41A pulse rifles late 2016-17, with a plan to design an accurate 3d printable version ....
First attempt was here :

While it was not a bad effort, i was off with size and a few other things ... and the electronics instalation nearly killed me.

What i was ultimatley after was a replica of the 10 hole cameron that ripley uses in the Med bay with Hicks.
V2 here we go .....

Thompson M1A1 up first

For this build it will only have a static illuminated counter like the original showing 42.
Breadboarded up a basic design to test.

Ill be using a 9volt battery to power it and Ive used common cathodes with 330ohm resistors, but i may need to use 470s as at 9v they are still quite bright
- Yes im using blue as i didnt have any red - just a test piece

One of the guys on the Aliens Legacy site picked up a few issues with the front plate that sits under the shroud. When i went back theough the screen shots i had, i felt the trigger area on the shroud was too sharp also.
This is what it shoud look like
