Quoted from nudge_fudger:

Hi all, picked up a SkyLab last week and it has a pair of Sky Kings sling plastics fitted - don't suppose anyone has the correct pair to spare but would be much obliged if you do.
In the absence of originals, would anyone be prepared to scan a pair?
A friend has kindly offered to print some decals if so.
If anyone can make use of the pair currently in it, you'd be very welcome to them once i've sorted some replacements
(Sky Kings slings appear to have an extra hole drilled but otherwise in good shape)
Apologies for making a 'wanted' first post - hope to be able to contribute going forward.[quoted image][quoted image]

You might want to try Steve over at pbresource. He's got 4 playfield plastics(not slings) here http://www.pbresource.com/special.html. He might have more. Doesn't hurt to call

Look for a loose EM Midway gun game stock. Don't need the hardware just the stock. Would like one from a Midway Rifle Gallery, but I know that's a super long shot.

Quoted from Oldgoat:

I'm sure you know this, but just in case. They used actual guns for many, perhaps all, of those games. Therefore, you might have better luck looking for a stock to the gun that was on that game as opposed to looking for a stock for the game, if that makes sense. If I recollect correctly, the stock on the Midway Capt'n Kidd I had was from an old Winchester 22...I'll see if I wrote down the model somewhere.

The butt of my stock is broken off, but what's left isn't matching any actual gun stock. There isn't a notch on mine for a bolt action. I've checked models from Winchester, Remington, and Ruger so far. For the shooting galleries, they didn't use the barrel off an actual gun. I know on the Capt'n Kidd and games like it there is usually make and manufacturer marking on the barrell, but for the shooting galleries that doesn't seem to be the case. But definitely let me know what kind yours has, I might be able to make it work.

Quoted from robertmee:

Need some advice from the EM guys/gals. I have about 15 populated PF's left, many EM's of WMS and Gottlieb. Shipping the entire PF with parts is too problematic, but I'm thinking about stripping them, and selling the parts separate. For EM part value, what's the best way to remove parts, since many of the roto's, steppers, coils, etc are soldered to the harness. Cut them at the solder point? Does the harness have any value? I've seen some wanted ads for jones plugs, and at least one person has expressed interest to me in the cloth wiring, so best way to preserve their usefulness? I don't want to get strictly in the parts business, selling a single piece here and there. I'd prefer to just box up the major parts and say "here", all the parts for an XYZ game. Realizing I'd get less value, but less time consuming and shipping.

I'd cut them at the solder point. Yes the wiring harness has value. I was the one the inquired about a harness, but I have since found one. Thanks for remembering though! The harness I bought had all the components cut at their solder points and the harness was still in one piece. I know too-many-pins normally sells cloth wire by the pound. Guys into guitars and old sound amps love the cloth wire too.
