The Quickshot QS-137F is a joystick released in Europe. The product name is "Python 1M". The M stands for Microswitch, which gives a more tactile response then leaf switches.

It has an auto-fire function that can be enabled for Trigger A only.


The multi-system select switch can be switched between (A) ATARI/COMMODORE , (B) MSX, (C) AMSTRAD or (D) SEGA

Note: There are several other models of Quickshot "Python" joysticks.

  • QS-130F Python 1 - Multi system (same, but with leaf switches)
  • QS-130N Python 2 is for NES
  • QS-197 Python 2B is for SNES
  • QS-197E Python 2B is for SNES
  • QS-135 Python 3 is for Sega Megadrive
  • QS-189 Python 5 is for PC

They all look very similar at first glance. Before purchasing for use with your MSX, ensure it looks like the pictures below, that it has the system select switch and just two trigger buttons.
