Quoted from Lemank:

I checked the switch. I tightened everything up I could get a screw driver too. I still have the problem. It kicks out sometimes but not all the time. It also won't register when I get an extra ball either. Could it be a bad switch?

Had the same issue of intermittent hits. I was able to tilt the switch - as far as the small movement would allow and then re-tighten. Seems to have worked.

Quoted from KornFreak28:

I've been interested in buying Metallica for a while now but have been hesitant to do so due to the ghosting, clearcoat and general playfield issues I've been reading about for so long. Are the new Metallicas coming with a good playfield now? Should I take the plunge and buy one? I know Stern offers to swap your PF but I honestly don't want to go through all that hassle, specially on a brand new machine.
Any advise is much appreciated. Thanks!

Bought my nib pro in May 2015 - zero issues. Friend just received his nib pro this week - again zero issues.
I'd highly recommend that you take the plunge and buy one!

Quoted from KornFreak28:

What are the must have mods for Metallica? Specially for protection like cliffy's and plastic shields...
Also, what about this magnet mushrooming issue I've read about? Is that still going on with new MET's? Thanks!

The magnet is relatively soft. With enough plays over time, the pinballs dent the magnet. If left too long, the magnet will spread. Simple fix is to buy a new core (for $12) and swap it out. Pinball life carries them.
