A few Vintage Bounty hunters from the early seventies,

Here are a few vintage Bounty Hunter detectors from the early seventies, One "Professional" and two "Outlaw" models.

The Outlaw (blue box) can operate with either a TR mode or BFO mode, And only with using the long Big Foot type TR/BFO coil.

The Professional, although it's an oldie gets serious depth for a BFO. And uses both the smaller and larger coil together.

Thought it would be a treat posting these for those who never seen an old Bounty Hunter, Take care.

Yep, that's what Fred and Barney were using in the episode when Wilma lost her ring.:blink:

Those are indeed old units... from last millennium I believe.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Mark,

I do have older Bounty hunters but it was about this era (Professional & Outlaw) when depth and a less drift threshold tuner were improved,

I still use the older detectors of yesterday mainly for tot lots and open ball fields & play grounds. And, A few special TR's from the mid seventies for old sites laced with iron.

Surprisingly, Some of the older 100kHz detectors from the seventies will out perform the new machines of today at these older sites laced with iron.

Thanks again, Paul (Ca)

I love how retro those detectors look. Yet, I notice that the magnum coil, although white colored, looks almost the same as the current Bounty Hunter magnum coil. Its interesting to see change and continuity together like that.

I'm thinking of getting a gold-specific machine. Were any of the older BH metal detectors designed specifically for gold?

Hi Paul (Ca). Thanks for the great photos of your detectors. I'm new to this forum and had just got a Bounty Hunter Outlaw TR/BFO and have a few questions maybe you could help me with?

1) I have download the owners manual (without pictures), but it is not clear about the battery connections. I have both 9v and 12v packs for the detector, and the battery connector wires coming from on the detector are identical, except for that one connector is black and the other is blue. Which is 9v and 12v? There are no markings on the battery packs or the connectors to figure them out..

2) The Outlaw comes with a small and large coil. Are you saying that the smaller coil works with BFO only, or TR?

Thanks-

Paul,
You still never cease to amaze me. Thanks for sharing more of your collection. Every detector you have posted looks mint. It would be worth the trip to California just to see your entire collection. Steve

Thanks Paul For Sharing The Oldies With Us...........N/T

I recently saw a couple of these old box jobs for sale for $30 bucks each. They said they didn't know if they work or not, , but they look great. For that price I was thinking of grabbing them. I think there was a red one and a blue one.

Nice old detectors there and in nice shape ! I remember them from the 70's and early 80's. I had a lot of fun with them back then and regret that I no longer have mine.
