Rare GIM Electronics Fire Command - VC-2001 Joystick Found in the Wild!


Recommended Posts

The Fire Command is the best vintage joystick I have ever owned. My go to stick before was my custom built dual stick with 2 Sanwa JLW joysticks. The buttons and joystick on the fire Command feel like they came straight from an authentic arcade cabinet. My biggest problem with leaf switch joysticks is the need to re-adjust the leaf switches for peek performance after extended or rough use. The Fire Command restrictor gate design doesn't allow the sticks throw to overly stress the leaf switches and it never seems to need adjustment. It weighs over 5lbs and after I dropped it on my wifes foot by accident it left a huge bruise.
