Those are hard to find these days. If you cant locate one maybe you could get it pinched, should be good enough for backup reasons.

+1 which is the same as the JPX .21 made by jammin. That one is still in production. Sure you can find a p/s set for that somewhere.

Nope, but the drake is based on the picco evo 2, and the JPX is based on the evo 2 so I am pretty confident it will work.
