    Hi !
    I have a Big Guns thats missing its backbox lock.
    When I read about this machine it says it belongs to a few types of Sys11 games that need a 7/8 cam lock in the backbox that rotates counter clockwise (left) ?

    My problem; most of the webshops that sell this kind of lock seem to just offer the "normal" version of that cam lock, thats is the ones who turns right.

    Do You guys have any suggestions where to find a inexpensive fitting lock for the BG backbox ? Is there any way to modify a normal cam lock so it will function correctly in a Big Guns ?

    Thanks in advance

    you can lift the little restrictor plate & flip it over or change the orientation for left hand turn.
