Bounty Hunter Quick Silver Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 28, 2016):
- I'm pretty new to metal detecting, but it's a hobby I've grown to love! I use my Bounty Hunter Quick Silver when we go on vacation and scan the beach, especially after large gatherings. I always wind up with something to make the effort worthwhile. Over the years, I've had luck finding necklaces, rings, and, of course coins. The Quick Silver makes it easy for a beginner like me to find items quickly and with minimal effort by displaying whether the item is iron, aluminum, nickel, coins or precious metals. It also comes with a depth meter on the digital display that allows the user to scan as deep as four to five feet. There's also a jack to allow the use of headphones which I highly recommend, as the beep on this thing is very loud. This detector runs on two eight volt alkaline batteries and allows for fairly long usage. I've also used my Quick Silver on a side project, grave detection. I've been working on documenting a pioneer cemetery with several unmarked graves. This little detector has come in handy by not only displaying the depth something be, but also if there may be someone buried on the spot. Usually the readings will display iron (nails), brass fixtures or buttons, etc. anything to show that someone may be there and be counted. There are definitely better, more powerful models than the Quick Silver, but for the beginner, this is a wonderful model to start out with.
