A very solid and base heavy device, a user could select via a slide switch whether to fire from the base or the stick.

With a finite supply of retro game consoles it may behoove us to learn some basic repair skills. When it comes to electronics, we don't fix anything - we replace it. If it stops working we throw it away and buy a new one. I hope this serves as a wake-up call for retro gamers to learn more about the repair of game consoles and arcade games. That may soon be our only salvation for playing on original hardware! Read more: http://8-bitcentral.com/blog/2015/electronicsRepair.html#ixzz3SPm7rLZd
