I'm sure the High Tension spring helped out..

Well that will be fun to take off.. out comes the grinder

Here's how I would fix it

1 of 2 ways

#1 unscrew the shooter assy and file/grind the shooter rod *outside* the game - keeps shavings out of the game

#2 pull the shooter, clamp it in the 'pulled' position, and cut the knob off the shooter then carefully release the clamp

Either of these ways, you don't get a cabinet full of shavings

How many times do you think you would have to plunge the ball without a shooter tip in order for it to look like that?

New shooter is the only option. The length after grinding will be significantly shorter.

I've cleaned a couple up that were that bad, and been able to reuse them. It wasn't *that* much shorter!

When I found it it reminded me of Looney Tune cartoons , the old "finger in the end of the gun barrel" gag..
