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.

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.

 

Remember this is not the CURRENT THREAD.

It was taken over by the thread started in 2011.

 

The person updating the list has a thread here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/186498-the-official-atari-2600-heavy-6-switch-list/page-1

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

Stopped by a pawn shop yesterday looking for vintage music gear, and was just about to leave when my eye landed on an old 2600 system. I realized it wasn't just any system. I've been looking for a heavy sixer for as long as I can remember but this was the first time I set eyes on one.

 

They were asking $60 but talked them down to $50 with 10 games and 2 joysticks and original grey power adaptor. Pretty clean condition, and from what I can tell, the second oldest serial number in the registry: 59081E. There was also a small white price sticker floating around in the bottom of the unit: #117224.

@sys700 that is one sweet find. Congrats! BTW, please add these pics to "THE OFFICIAL ATARI 2600 HEAVY 6-SWITCH LIST" listed above.

Agreed!

I'm jealous.

Welcome to the E club!

 

Please cross-post to get it added to the next list update.
