Small problems with the tagger assembly were written down and cited for improvement in the next revision. A 12-LED ring was attached to the back of the butt plate but it was only held there with small nails melted into the plastic. A note was made to add a raised ring which would allow the ring to rest flush on top.

An 8-LED strip was attached to the PCB holder after drilling a couple screw holes. A note was made to include holes in the next revision. Most likely, the first playable tagger will simply use adhesive LED strips.

A small prototype board was constructed to hold three infrared sensors and the filtering components which will be present on each sensor board. Sensor boards will probably become a large chapter in this project which may require more custom PCBs.

Everything was assembled and laid out. There were enough notes to make serious revisions to the models so the next build of the tagger should go smoothly.

Hopefully, a functional tagger with a dangling IR sensor
