i read on another page that i could just switch it to 9v as for the stock battery box it was shot.
and i dont see were a light would be.

You are good running a 9v on that board. It isn't a select fire board. Besides the 9v regulates down to 6v. There is two solder pads on the board back side. That's where you solder the light. Which you can buy at radio shack.

WARPIG - World And Regional Paintball Information Guide


Yes, changing from 4 AA batteries to a single 9 volt is a common modification, especially for players who have removed the stock foregrip and or replaced it with an Autococker pneumatics shroud. Neither the stock electronics board, or the early Brass Eagle select fire boards (pre 1999) are designed for 9 volt use, and will not function properly on 9 volts. A common solution to this problem is for players to only use 9 volt batteries that are slightly used, and thus not putting out their full capacity. A more professional approach, is to install a fixed output voltage regulator in-line with the battery. Radio Shack carries a 6 volt fixed output voltage regulator as a special order item (RSU 11392008). This voltage regulator is very inexpensive (about $1.50 plus shipping) and requires only minor electronics experience (some soldering) to install, as does a 9 volt battery clip. Howard "Heretic" Allen has written a tech guide on how to install this voltage regulator.

Hope this helps. Personally I have never used the voltage regulator that is posted. I've been shooting these guns for a Long time, just like alot of members here have been.

Just sounds to me like you have crushed wires and not get good contact. Let me find the old RMOG site and you can order new clips to rebuild your harness if you need to.

Almost everything you need to know about Rainmakers is here. The rest of the info you will have to pry from our minds

Rainmaker Owners Group

I made the "alternative parts list" hopefully you can still get the stuff more than likely you can Hope it helps.

If you don't like that shroud, let me know. Maybe we can make a deal for it later this month.

You have Been super helpful I had an idea to make a wood shroud but I am not a 100% I can do it on my own cause my idea requires a dove tail or just basic groove joint type thing for batterie door
