A new addition to the gameroom
« on: November 07, 2019, 08:43:59 am »
Although my gameroom interests are mostly pinball, occasionally a new arcade game comes along.  I've had many different arcade gun games over the years, but I'd never seen this particular gun game before, let alone getting one in excellent working condition.  I had to sell an existing gun game to make room for it.  This particular game was made in 1957, which would have made me a very young lad when it first arrived on the scene.  I don't ever remember seeing anything like it, in any of the arcades I've been in over the years.

Never seen one like it either. Is the gun a "machine gun" full auto?

The gun is full automatic-250 shots in the 30 second time limit. The video will be awhile since my wife is currently unable to make the trip downstairs and my Amish neighbors wont use cameras!

That looks just about unPC enough for me to give it a 10 !

Nice Score !!!

I currently hold the high score (no one else has played it), but my son will be home in a few weeks and the first thing he does is to beat all my current high scores. At least he can help me get a proper video of the game.
