Pros: Intimidating, tinkering dream
Cons: Heavy, no foregrip in stock config.
I've owned several Rainmakers, all received through trades (hence my value in Price Paid). One had all 7 of Mad Marty's Mods and shot amazingly well, wish I hadn't traded it. But what I traded it for was 1 of 7 of Rainman229's pump RMs. This thing needs a few mods, but once it's done it will be pretty nice. My third was a LNIB 98 Rainmaker, s/n 857. A friend now has it.

Overall, they do the job in standard configuration. Durable, pretty reliable, and loud.
But to REALLY jack up performance, something heavily suggested for these markers is to invest in Mad Marty's Mods 1-5. I believe he is still doing them.

For the price, it is worth picking one up. They are a tinkering dream and a RM can become a beast if you know what you are doing/modifying.

I had a Rainmaker and loved it! It's one of those guns that's just fun to play with. I'd never own one as my main gun or anything, but as a hobby gun, you better believe it!

You'll never forget the sound a rainmaker makes, sounds like a flock of geese over head!

If you get one, hope it never breaks! parts are hard to find...

Pros: Fun to tinker, looks terrible - but in a good way
Cons: You wouldn't want to play with this marker
When I was a kid I saw these in every other page in APG magazines... in fact, they're still probably in there I always wanted one, because 13bps was amazing back then.

So a few years ago I bought one used. It worked for a few shots, then just quit. Kind of started tinkering with it. I ended up having a lot of fun, and saw that in the right hands, you could turn it into something that looks mean.

So I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking for a gun to actually play a game with... but if you're into tinkering, might as well pick one up for a few bucks.
