    I'd say if you want a customized SG, Xian Xi is the man. If you just need an SG to play, with no customization at all, the ones sold by RGB are great. I have one, it plays perfectly everything I've thrown at it, using a little PVM monitor.

    Regards.

    RGB's SG is button programmable, a huge asset in my book.

    Absolutely correct. I just forgot about it because I do not use the feature, but it's great for those who need it. Also, IIRC RGB is in Italy, so shipping to the UK may be less expensive than from the US.

    Using Neo CD pads on karnovs with the right button layout...priceless.

    Edit: you can still get the db15 palms and use them in any given supergun or neo tough, so there are ways...

    Windy is good people, quality stuff and friendly. If i was getting a super gun it would either be a Sigma or Windy. Just sayin.

    I apologize for resurrecting an old thread, but I guess it's better than opening an identical one

    I'm looking for a no-frills supergun to test a bunch of jamma boards from different ages... an old Super Mario Bros, SNK (pre-Neo Geo) Search and Rescue, Konami System GX, CPS1 and so on. I already have a power supply, and a couple of Neo CD pads; I don't have 6 button games, so I don't need more than four. RGB video only is fine, I'd use an old Philips CRT.

    The Windy was highly recommended, but now the site is closed... forever, I'm afraid. You guys talked about RGB (that button programmable supergun), and if the guys are located here in Italy it would be perfect... do you have a link for that?

    The MAK Strike and the ProGramer are also two possible choices, and if they both ship from Europe it would be great for reducing costs... but what's the better one? Anyway, I'm open to any suggestion, thanks a lot in advance

    The preorder list for the RGB HAS SuperGun with remappable buttons is here: https://homearcadesystem.wordpress.com/pre-order/

    If you can solder, the Minigun is a great inexpensive SuperGun but you have to assemble it: https://www.retrorgb.com/minigun-sup...-supergun.html

    Just avoid the Retroelektronik SuperGun. The quality control is really spotty on them. Some people have experienced damaged controllers and displays from using it.

    So the RGB is the famous HAS Supergun... I've been after that one since I saw it on a youtube video (from Game Sack, a good channel) but I'm afraid the guy doesn't take preorders anymore.

    At this point, I think I'll go with the MAK Strike from ArcadeForge: the Minigun looks good but I don't have time to assemble all that stuff myself.

    And I'll stay away from the Retroelectronik one, thank you very much for the advice!

    Sincerely, if you have time... nothing beats your own.

    The build is a bit time consuming, but it's not hard to do at all. And on top of that, you're in Italy. Just make it Scart RGB and you're good to go.

    You're probably right, but I really don't have much time for this... since I only need a supergun to test boards (I'd rather play them in a cab), I wanted to skip all the online research and buy a good finished product. It's lazy, I know, but when you have a nightmare-inducing backlog of pinball machines to restore, you try to cut corners where you can!

    Sounds like if you're patient, you'll be able to order the HAS from his webshop soon.

    Also, QcRetro is taking orders for preassembled Miniguns.

    The Retroelectronik one is fine...not great...but fine. I keep meaning to upgrade it but it hasn't given me any issues to date so I keep putting it off. Maybe I am just one of the lucky ones who got a good revision, as I've read some people have bad solder work or cold joints. Yeah they don't handle TTL vs 750 Ohm correctly, but I fixed that myself.

    Not a recommendation at all for that particular supergun. I wound't roll the dice on getting a "good one" or not. Just saying what my experience was. Only reason I bought it in the first place was it was the only in stock supergun when I was working on a project that needed one

    I have a retroelektronik one to.

    The supergun is fine and gave me no issues when I built it into a case.
    Played everything I have tried on it thus far and is easy to make controllers and kick harnesses etc for.

    But their customer service is utter shit.
    That may be to generous though as its non existent.....

    I'm surprised you didn't build your own.

    I'm still using the ugly one I built in 2005, except I removed the s-video/composite encoder and added the cap and resistor for the TTL sync.

    I may build one soon. I'd like to do an AIO double fight stick enclosure with a custom supergun inside. Honestly it's deciding on the form factor that is keeping me from the project at this point in time.
