MCA type maybe? I sold maybe 6 last year, so they are around. Shipping could be steep tho.

I'm pretty sure that's an Electrocoin joystick. There's probably some around but I think they're more common in black. I've seen others look for the red ones, in the past.

Yes Electrocoin,

ooooooh if I had the space (and the money) I'd have that...

I will add that the MCA type are very highly regarded on the Aussie forums. The ones I had came from a former op who had a lot of Electrocoin at one time.

Certainly the ones I had sold very quixkly.

sh*te, I'm tired of searching for rare joysticks, already paid a small fortune for a pair of red 4" Wicos and an Atari logo stick. Now it's happening again!! LOL

Might have one of those but it is only 8 way and not sure about condition.

I had 3 and used the best 2 so I'll look later.

8 way would be perfect. Smile

There's a couple of different types of Electrocoin Reds, That one is a long throw one.

Can't help I'm afraid. I must have used the third one as well, all I have left is a Dutch Suzo 8-way.

Nooooo!
But thanks for searching. Smile

Hmmm I did look in the loft, but I couldn't find the container ~ it must be in the garage ... I'll check tomorrow as it's a little late now (and I'm WFH all day).

The clip isn't attached to the one on the right, but I can see it where it's supposed to be ~ so that's not too long, it just is resting on the clip, rather than being attached to it (i.e. both sticks are identical, bar the colour of the bottom bit).  Includes antique (rare) arcade dirt Thumbs Up

Are those what you're after?...  They were what I was thinking of when I said I might have some, but I do have other spares too.

Great, they look pretty close to the one I need. The left one seems to be in good shape. How much do you want for it?

They're both identical, the one on the right just needs unscrewing and the clip put back on the shaft.  No idea how it came off ... but yeah, it's likely fine.

As for cash ...
Quote Will pay top money.

Nah kidding LOL  If you PM me your details, I'll take it to the post office tomorrow and assuming they're open (everyone is a bit snowed in round here), I'll let you know what it comes to and you can PPG me that?  So ... just for postage?  I've had them in a box for nearly 20 years!

You're welcome to one or both, doesn't matter to me ~ I'll never use them.  There are plenty of others in the box I'd probably choose over this pair.

Neither of those joysticks are the Electrocoin type (if you are after those?)

@pobtastic: Wow, that would be awesome! Thanksalot, mate! If you really don't mind I'd take them both.Smile
These MCA joysticks seem to be pretty good sticks, at least the Aussies seem to love them. Btw: I'm located in Germany, hope that's not a problem. I can ask also my sister in London to use her adress.

@virtvic: I'm not particular after the exact type, they really just have to fit in the panel and look like the one in the pic. Smile

I managed to take some pics of my stick stash, not sure if any of them are what you were looking for, nothing had Electrocoin on, I was pleased to discover I had 3 Wico sticks though :)
