A challenge for the Pit...

Basically, a local radio has a challenge where if you guess the source of this sound...



...you win a bunch of cash. So I come to the Pit for help. What the hell is this sound?
These are things that people have already guessed wrong:

An old credit card machine
An old rotary telephone
An old cassette player
An old camera flash
An old ViewMaster
An old abacus

The radio station did say though that it is something old, and that it was recorded at their office place.

Any ideas?

It's probably the sound of you not having much of a chance of winning.

So we're supposed to figure the answer for you so you can win the money and not share it with us?

No. You get no help, my friend.

I think it sounds like a typewriter or some sort of gun, but let's keep them coming.

Edit: that video is supposed to be a pixelated video of the actual thing that makes the sound.

Apparently it's not so easy, since the contest has been going for a couple of weeks and no one got it right.

I'd recognize that sound anywhere.

It's a plastic banana machine.

You don't want to know.
