As I previously stated (Korbanth Obi TPM = OWK), I own one. However I have never had an MR version or OM version to compare it to so I don't know how accurate it is. All I can say is that I like it. It's a rather petite hilt so electronics installs are probably a bit tricky but many have done it so it can be done (mine is empty).
I'll be in the area again this summer and I'll bring my OM Obi for comparison. We can take pictures and measurements and post a thread.

I'm on the Orbital Machining Obi TPM run. Acerocket offered a AOTC option, so the hilt sizes are definitely the same. Acerocket is an accuracy nut, and his Obi TPM is undisputedly 100% screen accurate. I'll send him a message and ask what the specific differences between TPM and AOTC are.
As for the most accurate one other than the OM, that's definitely going to be the Korbanth. I held ARKM's personal Obi and it was spectacular, and there have been even more revisions since because his is a slightly older model. I hear from the RPF guys that the current Korbanth Obi TPM is extremely accurate.
Stay away from Ultrasabers and Saberforge versions if you want accuracy. They aren't even in the same ballpark.
Naturally, I'm very very excited for the arrival of my OM Obi TPM, which should be arriving in a few weeks.

Thanks snormeepoo, I was going to do that. You are correct. The presence of that part indicates that it is indeed still set up for 7.4v.
There is a caveat with that statement. That does not guarantee that the person actually installed a 7.4v battery. If he installled a 3.7v, the vintage would likely be too low to even power the saber on at all.
So yeah, try charging it at 7.4v and see how it goes. Maybe keep it away from flammable things just in case he did stick a 3.7v in it. LOL.

That really sucks buddy. There are some people here that can help you. Also, it's still 7.4v because the voltage regulator (correct term?) is still visible on the board. You have to remove it for 3.7. 7.4v it is.
Please join me in welcoming Wade aka Saberconcepts as moderator. Wade has been an active member of the forum for many years and I had the pleasure of meeting him when we went to Grayson's house for our charity event.
We generally don't have smiths as mods so there's no conflicts of interest. Since Wade is not in our Alliance or Armory and he's more of a hobbyist, I don't see a conflict of interest at this time.
Wade is a really great guy, is hardworking and will serve us well.
Welcome aboard Wade.
Hooray! Welcome aboard Wade! Glad to have you on the admin team. It's a very easy job.

So much want, but don't have those kind of funds right now. Would you consider a trade? I'd give you this plus $100... I can even polish it up a bit if you don't care for the weathering. You could also sell it for the difference between your asking price and the $100 fairly quickly. It seems to be a bit of a buyers market at the moment though. imperialroyalarms.com/thread/7953/custom-saber-nbv3-defcon-leather
Rogue Five: I wish the movie would let you know when there's an end credits scene. I just saw Kong: Skull Island and apparently there was a teaser of another famous monster. Last three movies I saw had nothing after the credits. Just my luck the one time I walk out...

Rogue Five: Why am I telling you guys this? I don't know. I guess I'm a little annoyed. I feel like I didn't get my money's worth lol

Rogue Five: And I never remember to check the internets to confirm
Apr 27, 2017 22:24:42 GMT -5
Rogue Five: So to sum up. If you're going to go see Skull Island, make sure to stay after the credits
