Item description

I am selling this game for a friend who is not a pinball person and not in a huge rush to sell so I am pretty firm on the price. Sorry no trades. It is at my house so i can answer any questions or provide additional pictures as needed.

1990 Gottlieb Deadly Weapon - This is one of the rarer Gottliebs from that era 850 made. I try to be as transparent and honest as I can when selling pinball machines. Please review my feedback for references. So here is the breakdown on this one.

The Good

Has been in the home of one family for at least the last ten years.
-Game boots up and will start a game and plays sorta*(See solenoid issue below)
-Both display systems work great with no known problems (There are two different displays on this machine). See pictures for condition and types of displays.
-Plastics are all in good shape and don't appear to be cracked or missing which is great and unusual for this era machine as I think getting replacements will be a challenge.
-Boards all look original and are in relatively good condition other than the issue below.

The Bad
-Game keeps blowing the solenoid fuse and I don't know if its a transistor on the driver board or a short in the solenoid circuit. I will try to trouble shoot it and potentially repair when I have the time but currently it is blown and I don't have any fuses on hand
-Areas of wear on the playfield. Not too bad but they are there and are easily visible in the pictures.
-Some knicks and scrapes on the cabinet especially on the head. See pictures for condition

The Ugly (If you have read this far you must be a Gottlieb fan and want to buy this and don't care about the following opinion...)

-Its a Gottlieb... of which I am personally not a fan of this era machines and cannot stand(hate actually) the designs/themes and just about everything involved with them. This one has a particularly badly designed back box where the speaker lifts up from the top and then drops down onto the backglass and surprisingly does not break it. Only for a true Gottlieb lover or sucker/novice or "must have every machine" collector I wish I could sell for a lot less or give it away to someone I don't like, but I can't so I am stuck with selling it AS IS. 850 is the unlucky price tag on this one.
