I bought a couple replacement switches from PBR to save having to rebuild some switches, but the switches came with gold contacts. There's no way this pop bumper assembly is for a SS game, so it must be the right part, but I always understood that EMs should always have silver and tungsten contacts and gold is for low voltage.

Should I be using these or just rebuild my old switch? These are B-8704 and B-8559.

Those are the new correct ones. Just don't file to clean them, treat them like SS Switches.
