I have one of the WalMart jobs.................... and I have to say it is not real conducive to use in semi-autos. It's an exercise in contortion you get the laser into the chamber and since the power feed come from a battery box that attaches via a wire - closing the bolt to hold it in the chamber does not allow the bolt to close all the way - so the laser tends to move some in the chamber. If you don't get it just perfect, you won't be seeing a usuable beam to sight to.
It would probably much easier to use with bolt guns, but for semi's - the self-contained lasers are probably best.
