General Update – March 2020

Hi Everyone

Sorry for the lack of blog updates and thank you to everyone that continues to follow my project.

Great progress with the Lightgun plastic shells. I had to make some minor (but expensive) mould modifications but they were all successful so I now have a 100% complete production shell. This is made in the production colour Arcade Blue which is 1 of the 3 colours I will be making which also includes Arcade Red and black.

The main PCB is now complete. I’m getting one final final one assembled just to be on the safe side as there were some super minor modifications. That should be ready to be ordered within the next 2 weeks IF the factory is still able to proceed. They seem confident at the moment.

The recoil PCB is still slightly behind schedule but I’m hoping to have a fully assembled one to demonstrate within a month.

So at the moment I’m doing my best to keep moving forward but I’ll be assessing what is possible and not possible on a daily basis.

IF I can proceed with the manufacture then I will comfortable taking new orders as well so I can start ordering some of the slower components for the next batch. Please join the waiting list on this site if you are interested.

Here is some cool shoot everything in sight gameplay playing Rambo in Teknoparrot:

Best regards

  1. I was so excited to see this gun.. and I still am. I did have a even more hopeful spot in my heart for a real recoil effects of the top of the gun. The guncon gun from namco had the pedal and the top sliding back made it feel like a arcade at home.

    You should contact arcade1up so see if they want to buy your gun for there home size arcade cabinet. There is a lot of talk about them making a shooter cabinet soon
