I'm not related to the auction... unfortunately the shipping for Italy are too high.

Rare but not rare. Just a reboxed, re-metered Garrett The Hunter zero-drift BFO from what I can tell. The electronics look the same as my Hunter.
Karl used to advertise them heavily during his Examino publishing days. I almost bought one back then. That is also when BFO's were the best thing going.
Karl was a real smart cookie with a ton of common sense that anyone can learn from and apply to daily living. Loved getting the Prospectors Gazette. I even had a number of his silver arrowhead necklaces which were made from Spanish Silver Treasure that was alloyed with some gold.



Nokta/Makro--Cruze'n with the Simplex for 2020
DeepTech Vista X, and maybe a few others
Self built Mirage Pi --- works great in trashy areas!!

yes i got two books of mr. Karl (TH 6 and TH 7)... i'm very fascinate by those early technologies.. so sometimes I google for it :)

so it's the same machine as the garrett hunter ? i like to build this units but unfortunately i never found data for garrett machine (schematic)

Basically a useless detector, no depth and noisy, i had a Garrett BFO if the target was on the surface you had a chance. Lol.. The only thing ,i can say good about it was it did cause me to Listen carefully and pay. attention...
