I have two 50's Gottlieb woodrails shooter bezels that I need to choose between to use. One is plastic with 5 tiers while the other is cast metal with 4 tiers...I've only ever seen the plastic ones. Anyone know what is correct?

This one. I've never seen a metal beehive shooter housing.

I had a Williams big ben woodrail with a metal beehive but it was white. someone told me they were an aftermarket item.

Those look similar to my '48 jack n Jill - will have to see if it is metal or plastic?

Some where I have an even smaller metal beehive for the ball lift plunger. It's kind of neat.

they were not used very much but I know they are like gold for the pins that had them.

Do you know what machines used them? I sold off a few of the plastic style and held on to this one because it was interesting.

Mine was on a Gottlieb Sunshine...but looks like it may have been added later as the paint on it is perfect and the shooter rod is wrong style
