    Markshan had one at a favorable price (or at least he did a couple of days ago), as part of his Zero 100 parts thread.

    I have seen V15 III shells stuffed with other than V15 III innards. Sold as the real deal. I would like to see the capsule when the OP removes it from the metal shell.
    The white connector plate just looks wrong, as I have said.

    Well, you can send me the cartridge, and I can look at it...


    ...and administer last rights, unless by some miracle the wires all broke right in the back and I can attach some jumpers and then solder to the rear plate and then reglue...

    But that’s a long shot.

    Do me a favor. Put a tiny screwdriver into the front and gently push out the capsule. I want to see it.

    After It's been deemed unfixable.

    I can do that much, but from @petehall347 said that wouldn't fix it. I'm still going to try regardless.

    I don't plan on dismantling the cartridge any further.

    You are grasping at straws. But your cartridge.

    Then he would need to fulfill my request first. Let's see what he does.

    I tried prying it out of the metal shell. It's sealed shut. Don't see a way inside without smashing it, lol. Guess I'll use this as one expensive ass learning experience. [Mod Edit]
    Case closed. RIP V15 iii.

    It can be cajoled out from the hole in the front. Lever a tiny screwdriver between the metal shell and the capsule. That glue is long dried-out

    This is why I think you were snookered on ebay.

    I think one of North Korea's missiles would work better.
