Magic Shot Shooting Gallery

The Magic Shot Shooting Gallery made by Marx Games was one of the most exciting games a child could own in the 70s and 80s.

The game comprised a plastic gun with a magnetic tip and a shooting gallery like the sort of thing you get at a funfair. The front of the Magic Shot Shooting Gallery was screened with clear perspex and at the bottom of the screen was a row of 25 steel balls. Using the magnetic tip of the gun you would pick up a ball, drag it in to position and then fire the gun. A powerful hammer in the gun would fire the ball at the targets.

Marx Games also produced a variety of other shooting range games including the Electro Shot Shooting Gallery.

    I have one of these still sealed in the box circa 1970. It has never been opened and I can't bring myself to open it either!

    I couldn't remember the name of this toy and not many people I know remember this toy. I'm so excited to find it. I got this toy one year from SANTA, and I loved it, I remember playing with this toy all the time, it was great. I loved taking the gun out of the side holster and picking up the little metal balls and aiming them at the targets, it was real loud from the plastic and with the bells going off so I couldn't use it as often as I had liked to, but it was great!!!
