I took it down from my shelf and but new batteries in and it fired right up. It makes the awesome RAT, TAT, TAT sound as the gun barrels flash. The little gun sight folds up and the turret moves side to side using the hand controls.
The firing button also works great and the ammo belt still feeds through the gun. I ran the batteries down playing with it again so it will need four new size "D" cells. It is in great shape but not mint and has some scuffs and scratches here and there.
There is one on the canopy that you can see in the pictures. A little battle damage is to be expected after 60 years. Most of these just got worn out and not many survived.
