Metallica Pro.
Grave marker drop targets work, however, when the 1st target is hit the 3rd target also goes down. Or sometimes when the ball is ejected from the trough to the shooter lane, the 3rd target falls down and registers a hit.
Is there an adjustment that can prevent this from happening? I've studied the mechanism but not sure where to go from here. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

This is a production fault from the first series. I got a complete replacement drop target assembly a few years ago. Back then it was still under warranty.

I have a 2016 NIB MET PRO and problem occurred for me from day 1. I did many adjustments per Stern, but was ended up being sent a drop target assembly replacement by Stern under warranty and the second unit exhibits the same problems, so I am still waiting to hear on a resolution. Stern didn't seem to be surprised by the problem, so let your distro know.

Disassemble the drop target assembly, add an extra washer or two to the front side of the drop target on the lower cross member and 1 (worked for me) on the back side of the top cross member. This slightly angled the drop target itself onto the black strip which the drop target rest upon while in the up position. Sorry for the lack of nomenclature, hopefully this makes sense.
This fixed my problem.

Thanks for the replies.
Bought mine over a year and a half ago so the warranty is probably no good. I may ask anyway.
ff6735...it did make sense. I will give it a try when I get some time and see if it works for me. Thanks!
