mzag I hope you don't mind me giving added content here, but many people here probably saw the far cheaper Sportsman that was up for sale around the GTA, and might not understand the price difference.
The one in the GTA had a mangled payout mechanism which didn't really work, and the bulk of the value in a Sportsman machine is in the genius payout mechanism. It drives the machine's value.
So if this one pays out perfectly, $1200 USD is NOT a bad price!

This machine also appears to be the "Improved Sportsman", the 2nd edition, which is more desirable (even though it's more plentiful) than the original Sportsman because the payout mech was reworked to be more reliable. They came out within a year of each other! Talk about a manufacturer oopsie.
The Improved Sportsman has additional aluminum casting around the score card area, which this one has. The GTA one was the original edition.

It is also a plus that this machine seemingly has the tilt mechanism. mzag can you please comment if the tilt mechanism works as expected, and all the payouts for each award are all accurate?
Too bad about the missing coin door, but yay it has original legs. Do you have the outer metal castings for the legs? I think they might be missing on yours. example: https://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=2309 ... 647&zoom=1

Good afternoon! Now that the border is open, a sale is much easier with our friends in Canada. We are located about 30 minutes from Prescott, ONT or Cornwall, ONT.

Calt001, thanks for the additional info. The payout works for every payout. I added a transformer, on/off switch, and interior light (so you know when it's on). The legs are not original. The original tilt mechanism is hooked up but does not appear to work at this time although I'm working on it.

Have a great new year folks!!

I just noticed this difference in looking at the link on IPDB. The rabbits on my machine are not white as is usual?
