Here's an LW3 project i just spotted here on pinside, $1k obo (trades +/- cash considered too):
Located in Wichita, Kansas.
Pinsider pantherpinball in Dallas, TX just posted 4 projects here on pinside:
Stern Trident $425
Williams Time Warp $400
Williams Pokerino $400
Williams World Cup $300
Month/Year: February, 1980
Production: 17,410 units
Location: Lincoln University, PA
Contact/Link: philadelphia.craigslist.org link
Looks to be in nice cosmetic shape, but take a look at the bottom of the driver board. That thing is gonna probably need a bit more attention than just a transistor...
Still, awesome game in decent shape otherwise.
Quoted from Colsond3:
I got in touch with him. He doesn't like answering questions about the game, and is not very cooperative. The backglass is actually pretty bad, not in great shape.
Good to know! Makes my decision not to pursue it that much easier. It was tempting at first, but only if it was gonna be like $500-600. $775 is steep considering what it needs (not to mention the unknowns in a case like this)...

Just wanted to follow-up on this... i snagged it a couple months ago, the day before Pinfest. Seller was a pinsider, one of the nicest, most helpful people I've met in the hobby. Game needed a lot of work to get it up and running, but I'm proud to say I've finally put even the most nagging problems to rest (for now, at least ) and have been having a blast with it. Put maybe $75-100 in parts into it at this point. It's a beater with quite a bit of touch-ups on it, but i don't really mind. Plays fast and mean, just the way i like! Sharpshooter really is a great game, I'm so happy to have the chance to own one! Huge props to Captive_Ball for posting the link--i would have missed it otherwise!
Seems like a pretty good price for a classic Stern, though i never really heard much good about this title. It looks like it's fun, but I've never played one. I remember a while back CrazyLevi was giving one of these away for free bc he needed the space. Is it just a bad game? If that's the case, it may be a good donor to convert into a more popular Stern from that era i guess...
So the 16B-3 and 16B-6 are interchangeable with the appropriate fuse substitution? Would the rectifier board need to be changed as well?
Free Bally Grand Slam cab/head/playfield missing some playfield parts, some wiring missing, no boards, no backglass. Located in Jacksonville, OR.

Game/Type: Solar Ride / SS 4 Player
Month/Year: February 1979
Location: Jersey Shore, NJ
Link/Contact: jerseyshore.craigslist.org link
OP: make / manufacturer: Gottlieb and Bally
Brother needs to make room for the pool table. Have a Solar Ride pinball machine and a Midway Double Play arcade. Asking $600 for both.
Text if you have questions or need more pictures.
It may be worth noting, they seem to be asking $600 for the Solar Ride *and* a 1977 Midway Double Play arcade game. I can't seem to find much info about that arcade game, seems rare (though possibly not that valuable)...
Quoted from csdoplr:
Anyone have any ss projects they have for a few 100 dollars? New to pinball looking for a ss machine. Willing to drive up to 8 hours from Wi. Thanks
You may want to introduce yourself over at the Wisconsin-Minnesota thread: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/unofficial-wisconsin-minnesota-thread
Looks like a pretty active group, lots of pinball happening around you! The fact you're willing to drive that far for a game will certainly increase your chances of landing a deal. I'll keep you in mind if i see anything interesting in your area.
Quoted from cottonm4:
Maybe it was not set up correctly; I’m not sure.
It may not be the #1 game of the classic Bally's, but it should certainly play more like a classic Bally (read: faster, more challenging than that). I presume it needed some attention to get it playing the way it's supposed to.
It's a fun game, though one I've never wanted enough to add to my collection. Set up properly it can make for some good multiplayer, as i find a lot of other classics from the same generation do.
Pinsider Colsond has posted a project Gottlieb Spiderman for *free*, wants gone asap. No boards, no backglass, no displays, fairly rough cab, no legs, couple cracked plastics. Here's a link to the post he put up at the northeast fs thread:
I'm tempted but just realized I'm not gonna have the time or space for it the way things have been shaping up lately
Quoted from PinballHelp:
I have a working Sharpshooter II game with a pretty heavily worn playfield - the game boots and plays but the playfield has seen better days. Any idea what it would be worth? I'm looking to unload it to make room.
$400-500 +/-? They never seem to sell for much even though it's an awesome game.
