Gerber Omega 2.5 dongle

Might seem a strange request but looking for a legitimate Gerber Omega 2.5 dongle to replace a damaged dongle (Spandex don’t have any old versions left and don’t want to upgrade 8 sets of software to replace one damaged one)

If anyone has one for sale please pm me with price.
