I don't think they will do it. The 1266x is a heck of a machine but the newer technology has taken over. It's sad to see but that's the way it goes.

Minelab Etrac with Pro coil and 6x8 SEF coil and 6" Detech coil and X1 Probe
Tesoro Bandido II 8" coil 7" Mojave coil
Sunray Pro Golds
Deteknix X-Pointer
Raptor 31c digger and Lesche hand digger
Whites Ground Hawg shovel
Relic and Coin hunter over 25 years!!

There is no real shortage of these over here in the UK. I see them for sale quite often nice one's too . I so a nice one go for £100 on the bay but it was collect only. Ones that are available by post / courier seem to go for around
£170 to £260. UK Buyers - Never post a Metal Detector with battery's in the machine, the reason been the dumb ass workers at royal mail will pull the machine to bits to get the battery's out , i have had this happen a few times, they are so dumb that they can't figure out how to remove the battery's and will virtually wreck your detector.

Here’s what the a very knowledgeable engineer told me when I asked about it a year or two ago..

It had good sensitivity to deep coins in low mineral ground. Otherwise not so great.

The fan club comprises users who are looking for deep stuff in non-trashy areas, and who spent a long time learning its language. For those folks, the 1266 advantage is that it has great potential depth, and the challenge is to get that depth out of it. A machine that doesn't have that kind of depth to begin with, there's nothing you can do to give it that depth.

In fact just look what happened to a company that made nothing but old tech detectors..
I don't think an innovative company like first TEXAS WILL GO IN REVERSE...
