Does anybody Still sell Hori's (non silent) Kuro buttons?


#1

Someone I know asked me to replace a broken button on a Hori Fighting Stick 3. After googling, it seems hori doesn’t have them in the shop anymore and “sold out” everywhere else. The only place I found that had the silent version (only in a set of 8) was arcade shock. Luckily I remember I kept the buttons from someone asking me to replace the stock buttons from their Fightstick Alpha with Sanwa Buttons. (I think they’re the same buttons at least). I was just wondering. Are the buttons still sold individually (or in packs) anywhere without the stick? (or if their microswitch isn’t developed inhouse what microswitch they use?)

Paradise shop was one of the places i tried. The link you gave. “product is out of stock” Hence what i said in the original post. “sold out everywhere else” did you even bother to check?

I don’t need them because the person was fine having a mismatching sanwa button. But the next time I need one i doubt you’d still have that set of 8 (unless you keep a bunch in stock) which is why i was asking of anyone still sold them, or if they’ve been discontinued except for being included in hori’s own products.

I think Hori has moved on to the Hayabusas completely now given that the opinions on Kuros were so mixed to negative. Even HRAP 4 Kais have been revised and all units I’ve seen at EBGames and A&C have Hayabusa buttons now. I think (keyword) the microswitch that the Hayabusa uses is the same as the Kuro ones since a lot of complaints were about the button housing (squeaky plastic, sharp edged plungers, etc.) rather than the switch itself, but don’t quote me on that.
