Abt Target Skill Penny Arcade Machine Trade Stimulator Coin Op Shooting Gun Game For Sale

Abt Target Skill Penny Arcade Machine Trade Stimulator Coin Op Shooting Gun Game

Offering for sale this guaranteed original 1930s TARGET SKILL countertop penny arcade game.

I have sold several of these ABT machines over the past few months – most have been from the mid-1940s or early 50s.

This is a more unusual and desirable 1930s machine that features an all wood cabinet and a very innovative MOVING TARGET SYSTEM!

The gun is the classic mechanical pellet-firing gun that ABT used from the 1920s through the 50s. But the target and scoring system is very advanced for its time.

The machine is 100% mechanical. After dropping a penny into the slot on the gun, the patron pushes down on the lever on the right side. This action unlocks the gun trigger, resets the scoring wheel to zero, and winds an internal clock mechanism that powers the moving target system.

WATCH THE VIDEO (below) TO SEE IT WORK – IT’S AWESOME!!!

Condition-wise, the machine is quite good considering the age and the fact that most of these wooden gun games were in service for many years – often subjected to graffiti and light to moderate abusive handling in an arcade environment.

The machine was restored a while ago – with the wooden cabinet still presenting nicely. There are some cracks and some spots of wear here and there – but overall it is solid and good looking. The front TARGET SKILL casting is original and free of cracks (this is not always the case – often these castings got broken from the gun being swung back and forth in the turret).

The aluminum casting that frames the score wheel is also original – it was repainted and shows well.

The top glass and the decals are newer replacements - they look fantastic.

To play this vintage trade stimulator you insert a penny in the slot alongside the gun and push down on the lever on the right side. That resets the score and unlocks the gun trigger. It also winds the moving target system.

You then take aim through the glass sight and pull the trigger. Each shot hurls a pellet at the target.

For each target you strike, the scoring wheel spins – increasing your score by 10 points. The moving balls are only in range for a short time – so you have to be quite a marksman to achieve a high score!

After 10 shots the trigger locks and the gun is ready to accept a new penny.

The game works 100% perfectly. The gun was completely overhauled and shoots strong; making game-play a lot of fun.

The machine has its original paper serial number tag still intact - see photo. The serial number of the machine is 50021 – dating it to around 1936-1938.

The back door is the original wood. The machine has a newer lock with 2 keys. There are some notes scribbled inside the back door referring to the markings on the gun and the 1925 patent date.

The machine measures 10 inches wide X 15 high X 29 long.

It is expensive to package and ship these so they don't incur damage. The buyer will pay $70. for shipping. I have perfected a packing method for these machines to avoid chances of damage. If you are in the greater Los Angeles area and would like to come inspect the machine and/or pick it up in lieu of shipping that's fine with me. Please contact me via message system and provide a phone number to contact you to make an appointment.

Please ask any and all questions prior to placing a offer – the unit is sold as-is. As with all vintage coin-op games of this period it might require some adjustment and/or maintenance from time to time – that is the nature of these machines. Review my recent response for similar vintage coin op machines – It is overwhelmingly positive. offer with confidence.

Have a look at my other sales –there are several nice examples of other trade stimulators and other penny arcade coin op machines now and coming over the next several weeks.
