Covid 19 Duck Shooter Project

Postby safetyman1005 » Fri Jul 24, 2020 7:29 am

Got bored so bought a few bits off eBay and went through spares box and come up with this.

It's my interpretation of a Duck Shooter.

Didn't have a 1d coin accepter but manage to find a 2 shilling one that works, it runs off 110 volts and you get 10 balls.

Two bob?
I can imagine what the grown-ups would have said to that.
Is it a BANCo gun?

Looks good!

I’ve never had a chance to work on or even look at the mechanism for these games. Care to explain how it works? What’s the mechanism for registering a ‘hit’?

It's an ABT gun, giving 10 shots

By inserting coin it resets gun so you get ten shots.

The ducks rotate by mean of a 110volt geared motor, I've installed a transformer so I can plug into 240v mains.

The ducks are on hinges and they fall back when hit, there is no way to register hitting, you've got to be honest when playing with others!!

The ducks reset on their own as they rotate, by means of a hinge on each duck.

Hope this helps

A genuine miniature shooting-gallery, no less.
I'm impressed.

Ah ok. Thanks. I didn’t realise they used a ‘real’ gun. I’d assumed some sort of mechanical linkage/mech to detect when you were on target.
