Mamba Ir3?? Can anyone tell?
Hello chaps,

I'm basically after a bit more information about this marker.

What I'd like to know is

1, Specifically is it a Mamba Ir3?
2, I think it's going to need a battery. I can get one made up easily enough, is it worth changing the board to something running a 9v?
3, it holds air but leaks very slightly at the top of the HPR. Anyone know where I can get o-rings which will fit it?
4, is it worth anything to anyone? The guy I bought it from assures me it is a bit of a rarity. Maybe over here it is.

I'm based in the UK. Had it up for sale here but no one really interested. Much like myself, too old :)

thanks for your help in advance!

Is it a Mamba IR3. Not a Dynasty version though.
It still has the cobra insignia coin on the side - don't lose that!

If the board is still good I would just get a new battery. If both are bad, get a 9vlt board/battery setup.

If you just need that one oring, honestly I would just take it to a hardware store and find the next closest size for .39 cents.

They are rare, but not super rare. I would peg the value around 230-360.
It will be rare enough to make people at the field go :huh::clapping:

Thanks for the verification.

Yes, board is sound and working. Off to the model shop for a new battery!!

The o-ring is one of those oddball shaped oval ones. I'll have to have a hunt.

let me know if you switch to the 9v. I want your stock board if your giving it up.

its a normal oring just been sitting there awhile

^^^ correct. if you squeeze the top and bottom of an oring it will become oval lol.

you can try lubing the lpr piston with dow 33 and putting dow 33 all around the oring around the flashtank manifold (that oval oring you're talking about).
