Is my CZ6A needing calibrated?

I went detecting this past weekend and noticed that the old beaver tail tabs were ringing up in the nickel zone. :pulltab: this is the tab I'm referring to. Is this normal or do I need to send her to Nasa Tom Danikowski?

Yep, even if it didn't strike you as odd, you need to send it. I have sent both of my CZ3ds to Tom. Sooooo, worth what he charges and so nice to use a newly calibrated machine. It really helped my accuracy and my confidence to know they were telling me what they would have when they were brand new. It isn't expensive and usually doesn't take too long to get it done. I think anybody who plans to stay with their CZ should consider it.

Perhaps as he does an outstanding job and also because of the units age...Unfortunately are some old tabs that don't come in as tabs and might try having another CZ and see where they come in as due to their metallic makeup may just be in the nickel range....and your units ID may be correct...I know in my area one older tab comes in as foil and has did this in any one of the many CZ's I had...

Nickles are a pretty narrow range. I'll mention other detectors just to put a perspective on ID measurements.

When I get nickles on either my F75 or my XL Pro, they are right in the 29 to 30 ID number range. The old beaver tail tabs are in the 40 to 45 range and won't be ID'd as a nickle on the CZ. Just the ripped off tail piece, without the ring part of the beaver tail tab, normally comes in around 25 to 27 and these seldom hit as nickle on the CZs that I have. They are normally foil.

My CZs ID very well on nickles and I only get an occasional tab that is cut and bent up so that it falls into nickle the range. Pretty much, tabs show as tabs. I get pencil eraser ferules sometime show up as nickles. In high iron content dirt or near iron targets, the ID gets off a little; but not much.

Reading a complete, not cut up, beaver tail tab as a nickle sounds like yours is off a bit. The First Texas / Fisher division factory does a great job on tuning them too.

Unfortunately pulltabs are different in certain states so in reality hard question to answer especially the old varieties....

Another thing any flake of iron or other spec of trash will skew the I.d on any machine made. It's a good reason to dig anything even close to the I.d.
