Table Make/Model? - 01-13-2008, 09:53 AM

I am trying to identify the make/model of this 9ft Gold Crown-like table. Three piece non-pinned slate, adjustable feet, no rail badging. Can anyone identify?

Surely, someone must recognize the make and model of this table? If you think you might know what it is, lets hear it. Links to any pics to support your theory would be welcomed.

I picked up a table almost identical to this a few months ago off of craigslist. The only real difference I can see is that the finish is black not brown. The mechanic who installed it (Korner Pocket Billiards, Snohomish, WA) told me it was a "Murray & Sons" out of Tacoma, WA based on markings on the underside of the table. I will take pics of the table tonight, and try to get pics of said markings. I hope this helps.

I am curious...What are the white spots on the felt?

AJ, pics would be great. Those are three ring binder reinforcement stickies that I was using to mark 14, 30 and 49 degree angles for some 3-ball cut system drills I was doing.

Pat,
Several experienced table mechanics say it definately is not a GC due to the way the ball box mounts, skirts attach to the rails, lack of Brunswick Rail emblem, etc..others including the seller of the table claim that is definately a GC. I just want to find some pics that prove one way or the other.

Murrey & Sons 4.5'x9' Table - 01-15-2008, 08:30 PM

Here are some pics of my table. I was wrong, Murrey & Sons is out of LA. The table is far from identical, but similar would describe it better. Resembles a GC somewhat, but it plays great and that is what counts for me!






Let me know if there are any other pics you would like me to take. Once again, I hope this helps.

For a while, and perhaps even now, I do know that there were at least 3 companies out of China making knock offs of the GCs. So, maybe its one of those.

Montana and ACME google searches revealed nothing that might be my table. Gold Crown China, Google searches reveals nothing but dead ends either.

3andStop,
You wouldn't happen to have a URL for the 3 companies you mention? I did find a table at pooltablesusa.com from their "Metro Collection" that looks extremely similar to this table but they only had 1 pic of it so I can't be sure.

First person to positively identify this table and back it up with a picture, a mfg name and mfg's phone number, I will send you a $20 paypal deposit.

Then the obvious differences aren't a secret, right? So maybe you won't mind actually mentioning a few of them for my education?
