Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505 Pro Metal Detector

You Get Much More when you Buy your Bounty Hunter Metal Detector
from Kellyco Metal Detector Superstore!

Was This Metal Detector Meant to be a Secret?

After two years of trying to obtain this outstanding metal detector, we have finally secured a few hundred that are brand new and in special boxes. We're not sure if we can obtain anymore at these discounted prices. Buy now at our introductory price.

Hit the treasure trail with the Professional Series Pioneer 505 metal detector and leave others eating your dust! The Pioneer 505 metal detector must be one of the best kept secrets out there. You just can't find a better, all-purpose metal detector for all kinds of deep treasures. Minutes after assembling your Pioneer 505, you can get out and start finding coins, gold and silver rings, artifacts and more. It's one of the best all-purpose metal detectors for its price.

With many standard metal detectors, you spend time adjusting controls to get the best performance and, if the settings aren't right, you will definitely get bad results. The Pioneer 505 solves all this. Its automatic features let you just turn it on and immediately start hunting. And with the Pioneer 505, you get features few other detector offers - at a price that may surprise you.

Auto-Notch Leads You to the Coins!

Pioneer Coins A unique automatic "windowing" system called Auto-notch automatically rejects most common forms of trash. The Pioneer 505 indicates and shows you the most common coins, even most nickels and accompanying small gold rings, which are lost on many other metal detectors. Targets indicate clearly on the Visual LCD Target Identification meter display. This is all easy to do, with a simple push of a touch-pad!

Adjustable Notch Mode

Gold RingsA very unique adjustable notch mode allows the treasure hunter to adjust to a higher level of trash rejection without losing nickels and small gold items. With the Pioneer 505 you can hunt in high-trash sites simultaneously rejecting the trash without missing many of the smaller, gold targets!

Deep Target Audio Response - Keeps You on the Right Track

Here is yet another feature from the Pioneer 505 that pays big returns. With many other detectors, audio volume decreases with increasing target depth. That means you can miss a target - especially when you're hunting in noisy ground conditions. Deep target audio response keeps the Pioneer 505's audio signal at peak strength, right down to the deepest target. While others are listening or missing faint whispers, you hear full-volume; distinct signals that lead you to the treasure. You also have three distinct audio tones which classify detected targets into categories to make target recovery even easier.

Highly Accurate Target Identification Meter

The Pioneer 505's very accurate Target Identification system will help you identify many of the coins and rings buried in the ground. Special Multiple Target ID segments makes it even easier and faster to recover your treasure finds!

It's a Snap to Operate

The Pioneer 505 is a sophisticated detector, but it's also easy to operate, even for the novice. The easy-to-read coin target ID and depth reading LCD meter gives you critical information at a glance. The rugged housing resists impact and hard use, and the whole family can get involved!

No where can a better dollar value be found than in Bounty Hunters Pioneer 505. The Pioneer 505 gives you big performance and top of the line features found only on detectors costing hundreds more. if that isn't enough, the Pioneer 505 Has a new D-Tech high performance search coil that even the most expensive detectors don't have.

The Pioneer 505 is the perfect metal detector for beginners and is also great for old pros. Lightweight and a breeze to operate; you can now hit the treasure trail with confidence knowing the Pioneer 505 will find all the treasures - coins, rings, jewelry, relics, artifacts and more!

Why Did they Add a 4" Search Coil to the Pioneer 505 Professional?

Bounty Hunter 4 Inch Coil A most outstanding search coil used to find coins in trashy areas where larger search coils simply do not work well. Larger search coils locate multiple trash targets tuning out single treasures. The 4" search coil efficiently separates targets tuning out and eliminating unwanted trash while still indicating most good treasures. Larger search coils find it difficult to be used in tight spots. The 4" search coil can easily slide through plants, shrubbery, roots, and can be used close to metal buildings, under grandstands, and sidewalks. The 4" search coil is outstanding for finding smaller items like thin rings, small gold items, and even gold nuggets.

Great Machine, Lots of Fun!

Review by Jason I on January 30, 2015

This machine is a blast. I have had mine around a month and have been mostly searching on my half acre lot. So far I have found some interesting things. I've found an old U.S. Marines pin, old makeup case, earring, old Bayer aspirin bottle (with cap still on), belt buckle (maybe a child's?), many various coins, and my best finds, a buffalo nickle, 1907 v-nickle, and a 1954 Franklin silver half-dollar. Don't get me wrong you will dig your share of trash until you learn the "dig me" tones, but be persistent and you will learn what to dig in no time. I find the depth to be pretty accurate for coins and smaller items. I do get the occasional false signals for some reason that drive me crazy. I got mine from the scratch and dent sale and the box didn't have a mark on it. BUY A PINPOINTER!!!!! It will save you time and frustration.

Great Starter Machine

Review by Bradley K on January 30, 2015

I received this last spring to begin finding things on my old farm. It is a turn on and go machine. I found lots of coins and my brother's class ring he lost in 1976. Very good machine for starters and people who want a good backup machine for friends to use. Easy to read displays and pinpoint works great. I would buy this again if had to do over. Very great machine and the people at Kellyco are the best.

Best Metal Detector

Review by Tom W on January 30, 2015

If you listen to the CD to get started, then all will be great. I just went to the front yard and started searching without the CD. Due too the hard ground I didn't dig much. I dug 4 holes and found one quarter, a dime and two pennies. I had the unit on the wrong settings but still found what I did in about 1 hour. Now I know the settings to use and hopefully all will go better at the coast with softer sand. I rate the bounty hunter at 100% as well as the company I give them 5 stars for such an easy unit to work. I am trying to detect anything, coins so far. I would recommend this unit to beginners as well as seasoned searchers. Now I need some ear phones. I got a larger coil, 10.5", because I thought it would help find goodies that people lose. Best of luck in your searches.
