This is a wonderful example of the original Tin Can Alley game from 1976. It all works well and all 5 Pepsi cans will fly off the wall when hit with a beam of light emitted from the gun (or other means). The wall's motor housing has been subject to a past battery leak, but I repaired it and works perfectly now with 3 No. D-Cell batteries, moving along the rail when the light sensor is activated, firing a peg into the can to make it fly off and moving along the rail to the next can position. The rifle is in great condition and the mechanism works by cocking the lever and then the bulb (using an internal 9V PP3 battery) flashes behind a lens when the trigger is pulled.As is typical though this original set up is weak and could really do with an more modern powerful bulb/LED upgrade to work better in lit rooms. Using a little pocket LED torch works just as well. The little bolt holding the stock in place had torn off the weak internal flange, so I have adapted it to take a much stronger bolt and can now be handled and used without worry. The polystyrene inner and box lid are very good all round, lid is straight and strong and all corners are intact except a small tear near one, and the inner is intact but just some staining from the old battery leakage. No instruction sheet, but it is not needed.
Please note, it is supplied without batteries. From a smoke and pet free home.
