    Does Garrett plan on releasing new Whites products

    Couldn't stand it.... Bought a second 3Vi. Nearly new with wireless, original batteries still in it. Paid nearly old new price but now I'll sleep better 😃

    Does Garrett plan on releasing new Whites products

    Hopefully waterproof? Maybe a slight tweek in frequencies.

    Does Garrett plan on releasing new Whites products

    I'm thinking about a new machine or trying to find a good late manufactured used V3i. I know about the time I buy, a new machine will come out from Garrett like the V.....

    Nice rifles! Been thinking about a lever for a long time. Maybe someday!

    Another single shot, B78 Browning in 6mm Remington. 4 days ago.

    Sound and screen

    Maybe Garrett will reintroduce the technology? I'm thinking about a new detector. Just trying to find one I'd like if mine dies and can't be fixed. Maybe try to find a backup for now.

    Sound and screen

    Do any of the new multi frequency detectors show which frequency is hitting the target? Do any show anything besides numbers?

    Sound and screen

    The old Whites V3i has stereo sound, right ear higher value targets, left ear iron and ? The screen has 3 color bars, one for each frequency. For example, bottom bar is green, usually silver. Does anyone make anything like that now??

    I enjoy shooting when I can go

    Don't underestimate the power of a 45 cal Sharps. It will go through 2 buffalo standing side by side (500 grn Gov round nose bullet). I never have recovered a bullet from an animal. It will go through 4" of oak at a mile (late 1800s US Gov Sandy Hook testing)

    I enjoy shooting when I can go

    The arc peaks about 45 ft above the line of sight on a 1000 yds shot with a black powder rifle. If the sun is behind you, you can actually see the bullet and watch it go into the target and splat (steel gong target). This is with a telescope, 2.5 second flight time, roughly 1250 fps.

    My friend shoots a 50-140. Extreme recoil!! I hate shooting next to him... Also extreme muzzle blast.

    I enjoy shooting when I can go

    This is good for 1000 yds but it takes 2.5 seconds to get there. 40-65, 405grn lead bullet, 65 grains black powder.

    On a real copper, 78 isn't uncommon on mine

    Sweep speed and sizing feature?

    I was told to put the coil on the ground, place a coin on each side of it then sweep over them at your normal rate. You should hear 2 distinct hits. If not, adjust the speed of your sweep or the detector.

    Probably regret it

    I probably will, but I listed my MXT AP on the for sale forum. I bought a V3i just had to many machines. I sold 2 others and the MXT was sitting unused and I just decided it needed to go to a good home too. I've enjoyed posting here and your company, I hope I didn't make a serious mistake...

    Just got a V3i

    Mine's sloppy too which I also dislike.
