I seem to remember playing this rather nice shooting galley, but I have no idea of the make. Can anyone help please?

Wiegandt, West-Berlin 1958.
You could ask Cersten for more information:

Is this the one that was on eBay a couple weeks ago.
I liked the look of it but the seller was asking serious money for a none working machine.
It was distributed by a company in Llandudno in the early sixties.

Turns out there is a name plate on the machine, "Lowen Automation" which is one of the names of NSM (Bingen). The machine is so like the 1958 one shown above I can only assume NSM bought out the other company and took over their machines. Good to see how the info slowly comes together. !THUMBS!

Should that read Löwen-Automaten?

Brings to mind another German shooting console which sold at the Coventry auction in 2010.

Löwen Automaten distributed a lot of machines from variuos manufacturers by using their own plate. !PUZZLED!

The other shooting machine(picture) was made by JDO Aparatebau GmbH, 7770 Übingen West Germany.
Also Rehbock trade this machchines by using his own brand.
