A wall mounted shooter - I want one, not that I have any wall space.

Hi


as far as I know - the "Running Hare" was build by Jentzsch&Meerz,
in germany it was called "Hubertus" , there where two different versions one
with payout for Token, and one with payout in cash.
And indeed the basics are really equally.

cheers Marco

Running Hares were also made in Britain and France but I think Jentzsch & Meerz invented the game. They completely redesigned it in the 1920s, mounting all of the mechanism onto the front door and replacing the single hare with a bugler, jockey, hound and fox. They also made a very different wall-mounted shooter called Argus which shot ball bearings from a side-mounted pistol.

That's the one! By 'bullet' I think you mean small metal ball (bearing)? !PUZZLED!

A few nice lots went on sale in Switzerland yesterday, which most of you will have seen. German Diana which sold for £1175 including commission. The other two items a French crane and another shooter did not sell.

The other wall mounted shooter I have not seen a Brutus, looks complicated inside and could not immediately find anything on the net about it.....prefer the looks of the Diana, but I am biased of course :lol:

These items have been appearing on invaluable.com for years, presumably because they never make their high reserves. A new record for the Diana I believe.
