Light rings for the user-end of the tagger were tinned on their terminals. Six rings were soldered for the taggers being made. Six butt stocks were available so it seemed logical to have six light rings available as spare parts.

Light rings with tinned terminals

Wires were soldered to each terminal with no regard to wire color. The color coding will be arranged when they are attached to the control board. Wires for power, ground and  LED data were kept uniform because power and ground were tapped off the same terminals.

One soldered light ring

When all six rings were soldered, none of the wire coloring matched the other models. This should not be a problem but sheets will be printed and included with each tagger which explicitly defines the wire colors for each individual tagger.
