What is the difference between solid state and electro-mechanical pinball machines?

Electro-mechanical (EM) machines are run by a large amount of switches, relays, solenoids and an electric motor while Solid State (SS) games are run by mostly circuitry. Any pinball machines made before 1977 are EM and any after 1977 are solid state. 1977 is the crossover year and has a mix of both. If you donít know the year the machine was made the simplest way to tell is to examine the game displays. Mechanical scoring reels means it is EM while digital displays mean SS.


Does Shoot Again repair or sell electro-mechanical (1977 and before) pinball machines?

Though our personal specialty is in solid state machines, we have an agreement with the best local EM person in the business. Should your EM game need service or if you are looking for that special EM game, contact us. We plan in the near future to list some of the incredible machines he has for sale.


Will Shoot Again buy my game or take it as a trade in?

Absolutely! You can receive credit for just about any machine regardless of type or whether or not it is working. The amount offered in cash or credit is dependants on the game and its condition.


Can I trade in my EM for credit towards a newer solid state machine?

Yes, Shoot Again will take your EM in trade.


Do you deliver and set up the machine for me?

Yes, Shoot Again Pinball will deliver your game to your door with in its normal service area for a flat rate of $75. There is an addition charge of $50 if the game is on any floor except the ground one (in other words if it has to go up or down steps). Games can be delivered outside of our service area for an additional fee.


I am out of state. Will you ship one of your games?

Yes, though we obviously canít warranty games that are shipped. We will however help you as best as possible with phone support should you experience a problem during the first thirty days of owning the game.


What forms of payment do you accept?

Shoot Again Pinball will accept cash, money orders and local checks (though they will have to clear before you take ownership of your game). We also take credit cards via Paypal. We are not yet set up to take credit cards locally, but check back with us soon.


Do you have/can I request a specific pinball machine or video game?

We try to list all of the games we have in stock on our site; however there is a short delay from the time we get a game until it is listed. So, you can always check by emailing us for the most up to date information. Should we not have the game you are looking for we can locate practically any game and restore it for you. Once located you will be informed and requested to put a deposit down while your machine is undergoing the restoration process. Be sure to check out our Coming Soon section to check if we have the game in our restore pipeline.


I still have a question you have not answered, what can I do?

Any unanswered questions can be answered by simply sending as an email or contacting us during normal business hour by phone.
