Yeah, I used a rubies sound card (from the blue/ orange version that actually sounded like a blaster) paired with a cell phone speaker, and that worked pretty well. Seems like all those wankers on ebay hoping to make a quick buck bought the good ones up and slapped some black paint on them to sell for $75.Don't get the current Rubies or the '96 Hasbro (see pics below). The Rubies sounds like a gun and the speaker on the Hasbro is so bad I'm not sure what it sounds like but it is NOT a DL-44. Maybe when I pair the Rubies speaker with the Hasbro board... I dunno. And I'm pretty sure the Kenner from the 70's will have a board too big to fit. Blah...
Anybody own one of these? I'm less interested in the gun than I am the sound card/ speaker inside of it. I've been having a hard time finding the Rubies gun with the actual "movie" sounds (also blue and orange, interestingly) so was thinking this might work, or maybe even be better?

I don't think that Hasbro makes Jango blasters anymore. Not that I've seen, anyway. The only ones I see now are Rubies costume blasters in the Jango style and the sound card on those is horrible.BUMP
What about one of the other Hasbro offerings for a soundboard? I'm think specifically or the Jango or Boba Fett blasters that are still fairly readily available? Do they sound right?
A basic 2×AAA holder would only be a couple mm thicker and be able to hold more charge. Plus, easier to get replacements or to use rechargeable batteries.It is powered by AAs however. Is there any chance this might work to power the board, speaker and LED?
If so I think it could all fit in the magazine well of the Denix.
I was worried about that front nut also at first, but found that once the posts were tightened down with the check nuts on the scope cross-bar that they were pretty stable and didn't really need additional support inside the mag well. (I have a pretty heavy scope assembly, too.) I wouldn't want to hit it hard with anything and dropping it could be a problem, but for regular use, I've had no problem with a well-tapped denix mag wall.BTW, mind the bolt that holds the scope bracket. I have a big nut on the inside of the magwell because I find the wall to be too thin to hold a 1/4 thread on its own.
Maybe it would be possible to weld the bolt to a piece of thin sheet steel and epoxy it in there from the inside but that would be a very tight fit.
It might be easier to replace the spacer on the outside with a smaller nut for better fit and epoxy or weld that on to the rod, which would you would then epoxy to the outside of the magwell and the hole.
