The new Mamba iR3's are going to be everything you could want in a pre-done, ready to go gun. Performance, looks, and a price that won't break the bank. The Mamba's come with all the new features that the standard iR3's have as well as our Cobra performance upgrades . Additional cosmetic upgrades are also available. All of the Mamba iR3's have the Cobra Lifetime Warranty (parts and labor)
All Mamba's are going to come with:
Cobra iR3 Bolt
Cobra Volume Chamber
Cobra .690 Step Bore Barrel
Intellifeed ready w/ Revolution Wire
Lifetime Warranty (Includes parts and labor)
The Cobra Mamba IR3 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Black to Blue dust fade Mamba IR3 with tatoo. Stock. Mem 6, Cops 2
What's good? This is the best looking milling I've seen on an IR3. This gun is so solid and smooth, it's a joy to use. I can't really say that it's any faster than the Timmy but it is much more solid and so far in limited use(about 1000 rds) no chops. The ball to ball consistency is superb. There's nothing wrong with the stock barrel but you really need a system to match paint. Did I mention how good this thing looks?
It's not cheap. Really, price is about the only negative. Once you've decided to break the 1000 mark on any gun it's too expensive.
I hesitated for a while before deciding to plunge all that money on a gun. I have to say that I don't regret it a bit. It will pay me back during each use.
Cobra Angel LED. I have used otehr markers, but they don't compare.
Cobra Mamba IR3 - Dust Black with tatoo
68/4500 Air America Armegeddon
14 inch titanium Longbow set.
As far as for the marker,...none at this time. A good barrel set. I recommend purchasing a pelican case to store your prized possession in though. I bought one on the net for $160 (1650 case with rolling wheels). this isn't necessary, but the Cobra fang trigger is nice.
The Cobra Mamba IR3 has sexy looks and you can't go wrong with the customer service known as Chris and Walter from Cobra. Great experience every time. Lifetime warranty is a plus. I chose the Dust Black with the Cobra "Tat" down the side. Easy to clean since it doesn't have the screens like on other Angels. I like the space frame, feels much better in my hands. ACCURATE. Don't buy into the hype. Just shoulder it and think about what you are shooting at.
The only bad is that I only have one Mamba and that Cobra Paintball isn't in my state. So far nothing bad.
I have used this since October of 2002 and have no complaints. If you don't want to spend this much, you can get a stock IR3 and upgrade the bolt and trigger to a fang from Cobra and your marker will shoot like mine. The great thing about Angels is they are low maintenance and don't break, as long as you take care of them. Tune them up once a year and you are money. At least that's my experience. Get a Mamba.
If you have the cash, go for the Mamba. It's worth it,...every penny.

The Angel IR3 Mamba made by Cobra is one of the fastest and smoothest guns I ever played with. It can easily out shoot an autococker any day. (not putting down any autocockers because i love autocockers too) This gun is very reliable and extremely fast. Although I can only get it up to 18 balls per second, it can reach 20+ balls per second. If you are looking to get a paintball gun that breaks the $1000 range, I would recommend saving up enough money to get this gun. if there is a gun better than this one, please let me know.
One more thing..... i have heard that people say angel are junk because they always break down...........completly not true!!................if someone you know says that then
e-mail me and i will deal with them...........hehe
The Angel IR3 MAMBA is one of the best guns money can buy!!! If i could, I would rate this product a 10000 out of 10.

A new Barrel, and a fast loader
Fast, Reliable, Accurate with GOOD barrel, air efficient, awesome milling, COPS wont chop paint
Stock barrel was to small, get a new barrel, no other problems
Well it is a SWEET marker, shoots fast, and accurate, and is really reliable. Also very air efficient gets about 500-700 shots of a 47 ci 3000 psi tank (very small tank).
Space frame is really cool and very comfortable, helps create a solid shooting platform which really helps with accuracy.
It is a very FAST gun, but all angels are fast, I can about 11-15 bps consistently, I have shot a bob long which seemed faster but it is hard to tell.
Very quiet people at my local field say they couldnt hear me fireing but they could sure hear the wall of paint hitting there bunker.
Great milling and customer service, the look of mamba ir3's is awesome best looking marker to date I think, but that is my personal preference. When you buy a gun from cobra you are given GREAT customer service, and a GREAT warranty- LIFETIME parts and labor.
This marker is definetly worth buying, they are expensive but I got mine on sale, just wait for the price to go down or until they have a clearance if you dont want to pay full price. Great Gun definetly worth Buying!!!!!!!!! I give it a 10.

Fast, Tyte Milling
Chops with COPS on
This is a really fast and efficient gun. Its cool looking and for the most part treats you good. Very reliable. The only problem in my experience is that this gun chops with the COPS on. Remember eyes dont eliminate the chance of chopping but they should help a lot. The COPS did not seem to help.
Good Gun. Buy it just fix the COPS. Once you start to play with it you will be satisfied.

I love this gun. It has wowed me since the day I got it. I am still learning new ways to use it on the field. When I first started playing with it I couldn't shoot as fast as I would have liked to and I chopped like five times that day. The trigger to me is hard to sweet spot if you put your fingers in the conventional shooting position. I've adapted since then. I put my middle finger on the tip of the very bottom of the trigger and my index on the middle where it comes forward, this allows me to tuck my arm in tighter and my wrist doesn't stick out. So far I've worked out that little problem but the bolt I couldn't fix. I was using fresh evil paint with the Cobra bolt and it chops continually. When I compared the Cobra bolt to the stock bolt I noticed that the edge around the front (which touches the next ball in the feed neck) of the stock bolt was a little more tapered than the Cobra. The Cobra bolt had kind of a sharp edge to it which chopped the next ball ready to be fired. You see when the bolt reloads and moves forward it pushes the ball above the one about to be fired back up into the feed neck a slight bit. brittle paint and a sharp edged bolt don't mix. The stock bolt if fine and works just as good as the Cobra.
I'm going to give the Mamba a ten because It is very practical in every area in a paintballer's needs. The trigger and the bolt are nothing big and were easily fixed. After I tinkered with it I got it to suit my playing style. This marker has staying power, I'll own it for a while.
Jt Barrel, Maxflo, Cobra Flat trigger. Rest is stock. Dont need nothing else.
Barrel, trigger, get SS internals.
Its speed, and its perfection to not chop.
A Angel is meant for Front play and fast accurate shooting and thats what the Mamba iR3 does. It has a Mems 4 and Cops 2 which is better than the other Dark or CnC iR3's. Also the Mamba will hold its value unlike other guns, so when you do decide to get rid of the beauty, you know you wont loose much.
The gun may be pricey, and expensive but the look and the value of it is well worth it. Save up your pennys and buy one.

Cobra's angels have always set a standard for other custom angels. What more can i say. Oh yeah, Dynasty uses these. It is also easy to snap shoot with. The lifetime warranty that these have is great. This marker is great. The dust blue looks superb, and the black is equally elegant. The downside is you have to play us the name.
It rocks. I am a believer, I want one. So anyway, it is really cool, and I am trying to get the money for one. Cobra, looking for somebody to sponsor? cuz i'm your player.
