    So as the title says, does anyone own one?
    If so what is your system? can we see some pictures ?

    Recently I have been developing an interest in real pinball machines that I used to enjoy at Arcade shops when I was younger. Sadly most if not all of them disappeared. So I was thinking why not invest in a real machine for home use.
    I Found a refurbished Gladiators machine from around 1993 for 2500$ and been planning on buying it with some spare parts for it.

    In the market for a couple myself including Arcade. Looking for a PinBot. I did though, have the opportunity to fix a couple over the past year for my dad. He bought them and I said I could fix them. I got both up and running.

    The two are Tx Sector, and Mousin Around

    Here's where I posted about the fix to Tx Sector.

    Mousin Around had alot of broken solder joints and a couple bad PIA chips, but managed to get it playing also.

    Here's afew pics before and after fixing TX Sector
