Hey, so I need a ram cap, board solenoid harness terminal reconnected and a button pad.


On vanguardpaintball, the pad and cap are $10 each and the whole board (if worse comes to) is $110.

On vanguardusa.net, it's $3, $10, and $90 respectively.


What gives? Which place is legitimate, if not both?

What can I do to avoid buying a new board?

The **** about the board is that the solenoid harness terminal randomly popped off the board. Even without me touching it. The problem is that the solder/rosen is stuck in the terminal and barely any of it is on the board where the leads are. Not sure if the board is repairable or not, but I'd like to get this all fixed and all parts in to me BEFORE this coming sunday.

What do?

Wow. And the cheapest so far.

Graci, senore.


Now, I need to fix the major problem at hand:

The board.

I'll take a pic and upload it shortly.

Hey man, that board connector should not be a big deal. If you slide it back on, it should work fine. You can glue it down if you'd like, but as long as the pins are straight that's the important thing. I would not buy a new board unless it just plain doesn't work. As for the other parts you need, I do have them in stock with two color options for the ram cap.


In regards to the other sites, vanguardpaintball.com and my site should be identical in price, both using factory pricing. VanguardUSA.net is not a legit site. They were an authorized dealer at some point, but are not any longer.

Also, you get an order in and I'll make sure it ships tomorrow which should get to you by Saturday.

Hey YeloSno, The solenoid cable is an easy fix. Like Reaper said just slide the connector on straight and use a little hot glue or a Thermal Adhesive or an acrylic type adhesive to keep it in place and will stay put with no issues.

I've done that and the solenoid still won't click, unfortch.

On the buy, this local store that was suggested is FAR cheaper than vanguard's site. Their shipping fees are a cruel joke.


I may try using some conductive thermal paste and see if anything works. I don't want to permanently glue the terminal on if it won't work.


The thing is, is that before it popped off, the marker cycled. It cycled terribly, but it did nonetheless.

Worst case, you can send it in and I could check your solenoid and reattach the connector to make sure it works. Is the local store Aggressive Sports? If so they're legit.

With so little time you're probably going to have to buy a new board. There just isn't time for much else. You can always try to fix the other one for backup.

My hands are way too shaky for soldering something like that.

The local place seems to be deadboxsports.com

I have 24 backup guns, so this isn't a problem. I just really want to so I can show it at the meet and play some games with other people and have them try it out and see what Creeds are all about.
