Congrats on your H6'er G code its most likely mfg in October of 77 mine is and its a G also the guy at the thrift store where i bought mine had 2 of them the other was an H code and in worse condition so for 50 bucks he was nice enough to let me choose between them but he had no idea on what a heavy 6 was so only after I bought it and came back to find he sold the other one did i tell him that those were the more sought after first edition models lol good luck with it.

Picked up a second heavy sixer as a backup to my primary.  Also have some amplifying info for 55274G (which was added to the list years ago):

 

(stole the format from mikey.shake :) )

 

Atari “Heavy Sixer”

Model – Video Computer System CX-2600

Serial – 55274G

Sticker Type – White, single

Mfg – Sunnyvale, CA

Channel Select Opening – None

Channel Select Switch – None

Motherboard QC Date – “99 14400107 . #”

Lower RF Shielding Stamp – C010315-2

Upper RF Shielding Stamp – CO10313-5X

RF Shield Sticker – 99 33900025

Motherboard Rev – Rev 8 (CO10433)

93822J is the new addition.  Casing is excellent, but internally, the system was pretty haggard.  I cleaned it up a bit, worked on removing oxidation that had formed on the RF shielding and signal box housing.  The game select and game reset switches are still a bit rough in operation, but functional.

Thanks,  I just got it in a 4 system lot that also had a Vader, 4 switch and light 6.  Needs a good cleaning before I hookup it up and test everything.

Remember this is not the CURRENT THREAD.

It was taken over by the thread started in 2011.

Maybe because there have only been 15 systems added there since it was last updated September 2015?

Where is the list in this thread, and is it newer than September 2015?

 

If this list is "dead" there is no harm in cross posting the same data in the current official thread.

The person who maintains those spreadsheets on Post #1 over there last visited AtariAge February 14, 2017.

Picked up a boxed heavy sixer.  

The serial number is 66228E

The controllers look original (hex are missing) but the power supply looks different as it lacks the black sticker.

Is this a replacement power supply?

Can't believe I've had my Heavy Sixer for, I think, 5 years now, and I'm just now getting around to joining this thread!

Found mine at a nearby thrift store for $60 or so; no RF box but it did include the original grey power supply and "clicky" joysticks, though the hexagonal stickers (?) were missing.

Atari model, Sunnyvale, Serial #36127K
