    This game is now in my garage and it's been a real hoot to fix up! No score motors here! But a lot of the brains lay in the multitude of stepper motors. Wish I was keeping this game, but fixing it up for someone else. Been trying to do some research and finding out what year this game was from. Do you folks know?

    The good news is everything seems to be there. A couple of switches broke, and stepper units all locked up...but other than that, pretty straight forward!

    Here's some pics, before I started to work on it. That baby blue has to go!

    "Sharp Shooter" is one of the rating levels, rather than the game name.

    It's typically called a "Dale Gun" or "Mauser Shooting Gallery". Dates to 1947.

    Neat. Dale Gun game. I have never owned one but always thought they were cool. There was one for sale with a nice price in MN recently.

    Ah, found it.

    yeah, that one's been kicking around here for a long time...

    Thanks Dirt Flippper...I changed the topic name.
    $275.00 in that condition, be tough...looks like that backglass paint is ready to fall off too.

    Here's what mine was before and after.

    It's alive!

    Everything is working pretty good. The scoring is a little off, but it will get there. This gun has some serious kick, BTW!

    You're right. These never seem to command a lot even in nice condition. Which is odd as I think it has quite a bit going for it. Small footprint, fairly attractive with charming gameplay. It's from 1947! With a broom handle Mauser on it! It's like a piece of functional historical art.

    Shay lists the back glass on their site. But that adds another $230 to the cost of the game. I swear I have also seen the reproduction optional marquee available somewhere for sale.

    Looks like you already have a great start to bringing this one back.

    Great job so far! Also Post here when it is finished:

    You got it EM-PINMAN!

    It is surprising that this game doesn't bring in more money. But I've seen other Dale Gun games that are better looking than this one...this one has a pretty plain backglass and base.

    I've repainted the base red, but I think the red is too bright, so I'm going to paint it a little darker on the red (maybe). I repainted the gun with a hammer finish and that turned out well. Hopefully get the scoring figured out tomorrow and then on to the other projects the guy gave me to work on for him. Sometimes fixing up these things, making money, and seeing a happy customer is more fun than owning them.

    Looking really nice. I just found one of these but it has no AC cord. Could you tell me where the
    AC cord hooks up or post a picture. Thanks

    #11 5 years ago

    Wish I could tell you. I didn't own the game, just fixed it for another guy.

    So happy to find this thread! I've got one of these games, and I'm missing the forest background. Could someone make a scan of one that I could print out and install into my game? It's a little less fun shooting critters in a wooden box... Thanks!

    Hey, I'm looking for the smaller cut out part of the artwork that the animals hide behind. Does anyone have a high res scan of it, or can you make me a high res scan or nice flat well lit photo with minimal distortion? Damaged is fine, I can correct it, as long as it's high res, like a 600DPI scan. I've rebuilt arcade art before from multiple flatbed scans and merging them.

    Thanks!

    #27 1 year ago

    you might try to contact paul reno at wisconsinpinball..he might have some cut and ready artwork for these games for sale at good price but you must ask him...do any other owners of this game need artwork animals or back artwork?

    #28 1 year ago

    I Need background art. I have everything else. I got one of Paul's repro glasses and it looks great.

    #29 1 year ago

    ok..i promise to follow up with a post after i see him sunday with info and some kind of price if available for artwork.. ...i have a backglass from this game paul gave us as gift few years ago for our arcade..im sure its the highest score possible as it has a bullet hole thru the glass

    #30 1 year ago

    took this off the wall for photo.looks great hanging in gun game arcade area

    Thanks, I'll definitely look into that.

    Quoted from Wmsfan:

    While researching the artwork I found that the background is called something like "Yosemite Valley" by Albert Bierstadt

    #32 1 year ago

    sorry all..last set of artwork was sold.

    #33 1 year ago

    Dang, bummer. Is it worth contacting him for a digital copy that I can print myself?

    Thanks

    Dale Gun owners. I'm in the process of restoring a Dale Gun which survived Hurricane Sandy here on the Jersey Shore back in October of 2012. My back glass is in about 18 pieces and here is my plan on restoring the glass. First I took a picture of the backglass with all the pieces closely together. I'm now in the process of restoring the photo with photo shop. Here is a copy of my work so far. I will continue to refine the picture and once completed I'll share it with the forum. I will then print the image on Hygloss Transparency Film Acetate Sheets used for Overhead Projectors. I will then place it to the back of safety glass and see how it holds up. I'm open to other suggestions! Well, I've been putting this restoration off for seven years, time to get down the basement and get started.

    I bought a new one from Paul Reno at Expo. I'm not sure if he has any left but check with him. If not I will sell you my old one which is very nice but couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a new one. Let me know if interested.

    I'm restoring the Exhibit Supply Dale Gun. Does anyone have clear close up pictures of the targets (Squirrel, owl, rabbit, etc.)? Also, if anyone needs parts, I have extra that I could share at no cost. I'd rather see the parts used rather than sit on a bench. @pinsiders @dalegun

    #37 1 year ago

    I need the background art if you have that or a hq scan!

    wisconsinpinball did make reproduction backglasses, I don't know if he has any left.
