For your first pin, spend a couple hundred more and get a fully working pin. Even if it’s ‘working’, you will find much to work on and learn and fix and will enjoy the process much more especially since you can play it as well. So in my view this pin is not for you and overpriced. Single players are better as well as less that can go wrong (one score reel). If this was your second pin, then I say go ahead and buy for $300. Good luck - this is the best hobby!
