A mate at work gave this old beastie to me.
He bought it new and hardly used it. Been in his ceiling for 20 Plus years
A little bit of research and it seems it was a pretty good machine in it's a day.
Came with a small and large coil. 6 And 12 Inch.
Looking forward to doing some comparison work with it and my AT Pro.

A little more research on this machine...
Working at Bounty Hunter in 1975, Jack Gifford and Ray Crum, decided to form their own metal detecting company (C&G Technology), which they founded in 1976. C&G was successful with a number of Jack Gifford's designs (the Bobcat, Lynx and the Wildcat). Of course Jack Gifford founded Tesoro Electronics in 1980.

Not too bad for free big_smile, would be a good one to keep in the back of the car for those unexpected urges.

Another good point about this detector, it only sends pulses downwards.
Makes excellent to use under swings, Play equipment  Etc. smile

That brings back memories. That was one of the first detectors I used for gold. I didn't find any with it though as it had poor depth and quickly got onto the Garret Groundhog.
