Antique 1950 Abt Challenger Penny Arcade Target Shooting Gun Electro Mechanical For Sale

Antique 1950 Abt Challenger Penny Arcade Target Shooting Gun Electro Mechanical

Offering for sale this guaranteed all original 1950 ABT SKILL GUN target shoot penny arcade game.

I have sold quite a few of these ABT machines in recent years – most of them are 100% mechanical machines from the mid 1940s.

This is a more unusual 1950 (per label inside cabinet) machine that features a very innovative ELECTRO-MECHANICAL light-up scoring system!

The gun is the classic mechanical pellet-firing gun that ABT used since the 1920s. But the scoring system is a very advanced (for its time) score-keeping system that advances automatically as the targets are hit.

There are different VALUES for the targets based on how easy/difficult they are to hit. And the automatic score-keeper records the proper value AND has a yellow marker to help remind the shooter which targets have already been struck.

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

Condition-wise, the machine is quite good.


There are NO major / offensive scrapes or graffiti marks into the cabinet. There is some wear and tear - but that's to be expected.


The two decals on the top glass are newer replacements (and the glass is too) - 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 any targets that were previously hit and unlocks the gun. It also sets the red-glowing score system to Zero.

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 number glows through the red window – and the yellow target indicator falls away.


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

The gun was completely overhauled and works as well as new. It makes game-play a lot of fun.

While the machine is an exquisite original example, note that it is not without some wear and tear. There are a few minor scrapes here or there on the top plastic head - and there are some scrapes on the cabinet. The wooden base is solid but there's a small bit of one corner missing in the far back corner (see photo). The scoring mechanism sometimes registers a value that is too high (40 points for a 20 point target) - but it works correctly most of the time.

The machine even has a tax stamp (metal sticker) on the head - it apparently spent time in Calgary!

The back door is a newer wood replacement that shows nicely. The machine has a newer lock with 2 keys. There is a reprint paper label fixed inside the back door.

The Original paper label with serial number is inside the case. (see photos) It is dated 1950.

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

Please look at all photos - email with any questions.

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.

I can arrange delivery in the greater Southern California or Central Valley for anegotiable fee.LOCAL PICKUP ISAVAILABLE IN the greater Pasadena, CA area and this is PREFERRED.

Please ask any and all questions prior to placing a offer – the unit is sold as-is. 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 vending machines, trade stimulators and other penny arcade coin op machines now and coming over the next several weeks.
