I love the American coin-op rifle shooting games. Can Can Wonderland in Minneapolis has a massive floorspace packed with hundreds of similar US vintage electro mechanical arcade machines to play.
My friend Larry operates an arcade there both with these originals, but also impressive, innovative new machines, designed and built in a traditional style.
There is also a massive indoor crazy golf course with the concept and construction of each hole built by a different designer, leading to a truly amazing result, and for pinball enthusiasts another huge collection, displayed and working, and yet another collection of early video, space and other EM rifle shooting games.
Yeah some amazing shooting games out there I’ll get to USA one day

Had some of the globes arrive for the cabinet, just waiting on the ones to light up the door scenery.

Also managed to make room and squeeze it into the line up.

Looks great lit up! The 3D effect really pops.

I recently acquired a Seeburg Shoot The Bear. It needs work, and I figured out that the gun stand was converted from a Coon Hunt. The original start button has been swapped out with a toggle switch. After looking at the wiring a bit, I think they have it so flipping the switch one way will activate the coin mech and the other way will start.

I'm trying to find a replacement switch, ideally the original type or similar. Do you happen to have any pictures of the switch itself or maybe pics from the inside of the stand showing what the underside of the switch looks like?

One funny thing is looking at the stand serial number, ours are 5 apart... Yours is 1297 and mine is 1302.

I’ll sneak out to the shed after dinner and get some photos.

Each coin mech has a switch that the mechanical mech pushes and pulls to engage a credit then the button is just an open close button to start the game, from memory.

Thanks! These are extremely helpful. Does the switch have a locking nut underneath, or is it some kind of press fit and stays in by friction?

Now the toggle switch makes sense. I'll have to check if they just moved the coin slide switch up to the top and added the start wires or what. Mine looks like a different switch though.

Also do you have the coin box? I wanted to see how it was constructed and verify the dimension.

Yes I have the original cashbox. I’ll try remember to get the measurement for you. The switches are held in place by a nut type thing - hard to see in the photos but there’s a threaded ring holding it in place.

I double checked, sure enough they took the credit switch and moved it to where the start switch was.

One more thing, do you have a good picture showing the color of the pilot light in the front bottom when it's lit up? I figured out the loose light inside is for that light but the gem on the front is gone. I doubt I can find an original but hopefully I can match the color.
