1976 Gottlieb's "Sure Shot" Gottlieb's Super popular western/billiards theme pinball machine freshly rebuilt (early October 2017) for years of family fun. Sure shot is the perfect complement for your game room if you have a pool table. Sure Shot is the last Gottlieb electromechanical single player wedgehead cabinet style pool themed machine.

(It is nice that Pinrescue has 2 Sure Shots to choose from October 2. 2017 these are our 29th and 30th Sure Shots we have restored and they hold up exceptionally well over the years. Our only business for the past twenty years is restoring pre 1977 pinball machines. We donít do video games, digital pinball or arcade games. We only work on Gottlieb, Williams and Bally pinball machines but mostly about 80% are 1970ís Gottliebís)

Vintage pinball machines are a hot collectable and great family fun with cool art work, it is a bonus that your family and friends can play every day.

Our most popular best-selling vintage pinball machines are "Western" themed then "Pool" themed with Sure Shot you get both in one game! Some of the greatest Gottlieb machines were single player billiard themed machines like 1950 Bank a Ball, 1952 Skill Pool, 1958 Roto Pool, 1962 Rack a Ball, 1965 Bank a Ball ( so good they did a remake 15 years later) 1969 Target Pool culminating in this 1976 Sure Shot . Sure Shot was the last of its kind never to be the same after 1977 when pinball went digital and the sounds and feel of pinball changed forever.

During 1976 you might have played "Sure Shot" while waiting to see the big hit Logan's Run at your local theater. It was a must see movie in 1976.
