Xterra 705 old stock?

I was in Sportsmens Warehouse last night and saw they were having a sale on metal detectors. On the shelf was a new Xterra 705 for 297.00. Salesman said they were getting rid of old stock. Didnt plan on buying one, but couldn't pass it up. Everyone needs another detector!

It is an excellent detector. It has been my primary in the past and I will not hesitate to recommend it for use today.

I know that I'm biased as hell, but I have to say that for those who actually put the time in to learn what the 705 can do it's an amazingly capable machine. It was ahead of it's time when released, and I'll never be without one for what it brought to the table.
Congratulations on your new X-Terra!

I'm with Old Longhair on this, the 705 is one of the best single frequency machines ever made, although I still prefer my 70's that I have.

Will Minelab still fix the 705's?

Absolutely!
They will repair them until they run out of stock on parts. And the 705 hasn't been discontinued for very long, so parts will be available for several more years yet.

Congrats on the great deal with warranty too! They're great detectors. I've never heard of one failing other than a rare speaker dying which is a simple fix. I did have one with a loose connector but just pushed it on.

They really are pretty trouble free. I've heard of a couple main board failures, but it's an extremely rare occurrence. Everything else I've heard of was either physical damage, or the afore mentioned speaker issue that's most often just a bad connection in the headphone jack.
Oh, and every now and then a coil goes south, but even that's not common.
