7800 Light Gun

Recommended Posts

Atari made the XG-1 Light Gun to work on the Atari XE, Atari 2600, and Atari 7800. You could buy it separately in stores as an accessory. People usually think of it as being only for the XEGS because it came packaged with it.

 

AtariSales.com has it available for $29.95 brand new here: http://members.tcq.net/video61/7800new.html

 

Best Electronics also has their own gun for $24.95 brand new here: http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/quickguide.htm

 

Hope that helps

I've heard of the NES Zapper being modded, but not for Atari. Mostly its been to be used on modern HDTVs. I think Ralph Baer figured this out before he passed away. I have heard of a Sega MasterSystem light gun being modded for use on Atari (you have to change the pin outs) and it's also possible to mod the Sega Saturn light gun too. Your best bet though would be a new gun from the links above probably, but I'd love to see someone mod an NES Zapper for the 7800!
