SEGA Saturn Light Gun Hack to Work w/ Dreamcast (w/VMU)?

Hi. If anyone knows a project that hacks the SEGA Saturn Light Gun (it looks nicer and it's SEGA branded) to work with the Dreamcast and the VMU?

Thank you in advance. God bless, Rev. 21:4

There is a Saturn-to-Dreamcast controller adapter called the Total Control 3, though I have no idea whether or not it would work with a light gun. It depends on whether the two systems' guns were made the same way. However the Dreamcast light gun included a d-pad and some controller buttons, which Saturn guns do not have... this would make games like Confidential Mission unplayable, even if the adapter were to work otherwise.

Regardless of what gun you use, you'll still need an old, standard-def CRT TV for it to work.
