Check that the coil stop didn’t come apart, with the stop itself moving around in the sleeve.

Happened to a friends JP about a few weeks or so after he got it and apparently not hugely uncommon. His distro got him a free replacement.

Quoted from Mach5Amps:

Thanks for all the help. I just finished my investigation.
There is no coil sleeve in the right flipper assembly.

BoJo - I'd by you a beer if you were local. You called it!
Part is on order. Thanks all!

Wait. What? You're saying that the plunger was just flapping around inside the coil... naked?

Pretty amazing!

Flippy-flapping. Wiggle-waggling. In and out, free and loose, like a... Wait. I don't think I'm allowed to say that.
Disappointed. But, I can't wait to fix it, so I can play again. Cause it's awesome.

Sorry to hear that. Nothing sucks more than not being able to play with a new pin

Start reaching out to nearby Pinsiders. I’m sure someone will give/loan you one.

Quoted from pinballlife:

If you are coming up I-90 on your way to Wisconsin I could meet you at the Pinball Life warehouse and give you the coil sleeve you need. Google Maps will tell you how far away you are from our place. We are about 1 hour Northwest of Chicago right off of I-90.
