The present invention relates to a retrofittable laser system (10) utilizing miniaturized components which are insertable into a pistol barrel (24B) of a pistol (24) which emits a laser module light pulse (12C) when a pistol firing trigger (24F) activates a pistol firing pin (24E). The pistol (24) further comprises a pistol housing (24A) and a pistol ammunition chamber (24D). The retrofittable laser system (10) comprises a laser module (12) which comprises at least one laser module pin (12A). The laser module (12) further comprises a laser module diode (12E) having a laser module diode driver circuit (12EA) electronically connected to the at least one laser module pin (12A). The laser module (12) further comprises a laser module graded index optics (12D) integrally associated with the laser module diode (12E). The retrofittable laser system (10) further comprises a processor module (14) which comprises at least one module pin receptacle which is complimentary to the at least one laser module pin (12A) forming an electrical connection when inserted therein and at least one processor module pin. The retrofittable laser system (10) further comprises a piezo module (16) which comprises at least one piezo module pin receptacle (16B) which is complimentary to the at least one processor module pin forming an electrical connection when inserted therein and at least one piezo module pin (16A) and a piezo module switch (16D) which is activatable when hit by the pistol firing pin (24E). The retrofittable laser system (10) further comprises a power module (18) which comprises at least one power module electronic connector pin receptacle which is complimentary to the at least one piezo module pin (16A)forming an electrical connection when inserted therein.
