The Mamba Pistol is a Rhodesian (Zimbabwean) semi-automatic pistol that was developed in the mid-to-late 1970s.

Design detailsEdit

The Mamba pistol is a recoil-operated, locked-breech, double action/single action (DA/SA) semi-automatic pistol. It is mostly stainless steel with polymer grips, and features a 15-round magazine. Its only safety seems to be a Browning-style frame mounted safety that locks the hammer and the slide like the M1911 and FN GP-35 pistols, so the hammer could be locked either in cocked or in lowered position, allowing the gun to be carried in "cocked and locked" state, with safety on, hammer cocked and round chambered. The MAMBA doesn't have a decocker. The grip-mounted magazine release and the slide stop are only on the left side of the pistol; the frame-mounted safety is ambidextrous.
