Bow & Arrow
The pinball machine was released in November of 1975 and was designed by Greg Kmiec. The art work was done by Christian Marche. The backglass is beautiful.
This pinball machine was used to test early solid state design. 17 solid state Bow & Arrow's were produced.
The mechanical spinners are much different than solid state spinners and of course the chimes and sounds of all the mechanical parts make it a classic pinball experience.
