Since there is no club started, I thought I would add one to help those of us who are trying to build one, and for those who already have one.

Since finding 12 classic Stern stand up target assemblies will be impossible, what is everyone using as a compatible substitute? Can we use modern Stern or B/W target assemblies as long as they are front mount?

I'm looking to buy one and join the club...anyone? Hello? Can you hear me? Is this thing on?

I can't remember where I saw it but someone had made some modified roms for SG. Anyone know where to get them or feel like sharing?

These should work (no rivet). Of course, out of stock.

For the most part, a standup target is a standup target. I bought some of the repro square target plastics from someone (named Bob) linked to on another thread. Then I bought some Williams units from Ebay and swapped the plastic targets out. The Williams units are front mount and have a diode installed. The difference is that the two holes in the mounting bracket are "front to back" instead of side by side like the Sterns.

The Williams units also have the foam impact backing behind the switch.

If you are going for original look under the play field then the Williams brackets will not work for you. But they will work. The main reason I went with these it that they were cheap on Ebay.

However, Steve at Pinball resource has a Bally "Stand Up Switch Assembly with Reversible Bracket" that looks like it will work. You will need to buy some of those repro targets and add a diode. The part number is: CA-10255-X. The problem is that they cost $6.60 each. The repro targets are about $1.50 each. That's $8.00 per switch. You need 11 for a total of $88.00 worth of standup targets !!

These do look like they are the "correct" side-by-side" screw holes in the mount bracket.

I found his email: He is Bob Langelius.

email: bob@langelius.com

He makes (or did make) the square targets in red, white, and yellow.

This pic is what PBR used to stock. THe yellows and whites I bought from Bob look like this one.

Fixed title
Thank you. I ordered the Blue assemblies from PBR. If I can't get white square targets from BOB, I may just make decals for the targets. Will probably do that anyway. Thinking of putting the corresponding zodiac sign on each target.

I have one in my house. Quite OK condition. See pinballowners for photos. I had it for some 5 months. Just recently totally restored a Firepower.

Now I will start on the Stargazer
