In The Beginning

We longed to recreate the magic of our favorite arcade shooting games from our childhood. But there were problems – the existing light guns on the market didn’t quite capture the essence of that nostalgic experience, we didn’t own CRT TVs…who does?

Determined to bridge the gap between past and present, we embarked on a mission to invent a new light gun that would revolutionize the gaming industry. Countless hours were spent researching, prototyping, and testing different technologies to create the perfect blend of accuracy, responsiveness, and immersion.

The partnership

We had already been working with Pandora Box for the last few years. It was the perfect fit. We decided to embark on a partnership to launch the best Light Gun plug-and-play system the retro gaming market had seen. 

The designs

There were a few different designs for the console and the light guns before we settled on the final version. We wanted to avoid parts that were going to break easily like slides or pumps. We wanted high quality recoil that would function at full power for the full game, even on full automatic. Most guns lose recoil power after a few seconds, not ours.

Parts broke, designs failed, ideas were crushed until all the bugs and materials required were worked out. We had to use the best quality plastics for our recoil system because it needed to endure a T2 Arcade full auto beating. And it does.

The Tests

Luckily nothing caught on fire! Except for the fire under our butts to get this into your living room. We ran tests for everything, then we tested it again, tweaked it, and tested it again. Many games tested and software updates later, we have a final product ready for all our retro gaming fans to enjoy. 

The image below is what most light gun manufactures use for recoil. But this system takes a lot of power and doesn’t work well with full automatic shooting. It loses power quickly and the recoil starts to get weak. We designed a completely new system that has been tested for 20+hrs straight without any issues. 

The image to the left is what most light gun manufactures use for recoil. But this system takes a lot of power and doesn’t work well with full automatic shooting. It loses power quickly and the recoil starts to get weak. We designed a completely new system that has been tested for 20+hrs straight without any issues. 


The Light Gun was specifically designed to have the barrel removed during shipping. Many countries around the world do not like importation of guns, even toy guns. We ship globally and believe that this design will clear customs much easier than a full gun. 

Images for your viewing pleasure

The images below were all taken during the making of the Retro Shooter. You can see the mockup of the first design and the final one, the console designs (first design had a heat sink but we decided to go with a fan for better cooling), the mother board and various other photos taken over the last 2 years…Yes, it took 2 years to complete this project. Please excuse some of the image quality, some images were screen grabs from cellphone videos.
