You should take a picture of the module. Those may not be pins, but mounts for the switch. They may also be switches as well, but only some are active. We'll have to take a look. If you have a multimeter, you can do a continuity check on the pins to see which connect to which.

That's the module, and the seller offered to bypass the switch for me so I took him up on it.

semi unrelated post but when DPSS Laser,Green laser,Blue lasers,Red lasers form Lasever says that the output is "100mW, 150 mW,…, 800mW" What does that mean? The more power put in the more you get out?
Where are 1-2w green modules nowadays?

Those different power ratings just list what laser output power are available in that module/host/form factor.

Those 1-2W DPSS green modules are still very expensive, and will probably continue to be so for a long time.

Just got a nice little letter from customs saying they've confiscated the laser under "good suspicion" .
I contacted the seller and I'm currently arranging to have another sent out in separate parcels on different days.
Can I expect another nice letter or will this one get through?
Would it help to get the parcel under a different name?

How would I go about doing that?
Just touching the end of the batteries to the spring?
Sorry

Run the 2 batteries in series with negative connected to the spring and run a wire form the positive end and touch it to the brass then press the button if it is not bridged.

No that is not, bridging out the switch will bypass the switch on the driver so it will turn on when theres power on the driver.

in your AA battery test, just press the switch while you've got you AA battery's connected to the driver.
