Big Guns Pinball – Williams 1987

$10,990.00 CAD

1 in stock


Big Guns Pinball produced by Williams in 1987.

Another very unique pinball by a brilliant designer, Python Anghelo

The backbox is 4″ taller than all other pinballs, and sports a mini animated bagatelle, which is integrated into the game play. Plus, the playfield has zero pop bumpers; but it does have 2 bad ass cannons that actually fire the pinball through the air and into the wire ramps, so cool!

The asking price is based on the pin being refurbished to “Collectors Quality” condition.

The photos in the gallery at present, show the pin in it’s current condition.

Major work that will be done on this unit, as follows:

Cabinet will be stripped, and sanded down to wood. All body repairs will be completed, then unit will be primed, and block sanded with 1000 grit.

The base coat will then be applied. Once dry, each secondary color will be applied. I will use a “Pinball Pimp” stencil set. Then, the finished product will receive 4 layers of “acrylic enamel” clear coat; which provides a wet shine look, and really makes the colors pop! It’s also offers fantastic protection against light scratches.

All the cabinet metal will be sandblasted, and powder coated; I’m thinking a micro metallic blue, matching the blue in the playfield, but if your ordering, choose your own color.

I also want to chrome the wire ramps in the playfield to make them gleam!

The playfield will be stripped bare, and have the old scratched, and yellowing Mylar removed. A few minor paint touch-up, and then 4 coats of 2-part automotive clear applied.

All the electronics will be updated, and many old connectors, and capacitors changed, so the unit is reliable.

All playfield metal parts, such as posts, will be polished in a tumbler with a special medium, for over 1 week; end result, they will look new.

All mechanical components will be disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt to original specifications.

The player score displays will be changed to the new LED type, making the high voltage generating circuit obsolete, greatly improving reliability.

All #47 & #555 bulbs will be changed to color matching 2-SMD frosted, high intensity Comet brand. All back box bulbs will usually be cool AKA natural white. Likewise, most all playfield General Illumination (GI) will also be Cool White. Unlike Warm White, which has a red hue, cool white is pure white, and will illuminate the playfield much better.

A new sheet of tempered playfield glass will be installed.

Due to damage and fading, the existing translite, will be replaced.

Basically, everything you read about under “The Restoration Process”, which is broken into 3 parts (Board Sets-Playfield-Cabinet) will be done to this pin.

Notable Features: Flippers (4), Slingshots (2), 3-bank drop targets (2), Standup targets (13), Kick-out holes (3), Center Up-post, Left outlane kickback, Right outlane detour gate. Two catapults (kickers that propel ball airborne into habitrails). No pop bumpers. One standup target is behind each set of drop targets. The backbox is very tall. Backbox animation (a captive ball is shot into a bagatelle for a bonus score.)

Production: 5,250 units.
