Please forgive a man who is not informed in detecting fully; but the time frame
you mention is what makes me answer you.
Approximately 20 yrs. Interesting.
When I owned my White's XLT in 2001 I was also interested in purchasing
equipment from russia. The idea behind this was, russian military has to have
mine detectors as they're busy in some unsociable places in the world.
But all "dealer" I met had no notice about such metal detectors, whatever military or civil/consumer. Yes, the were able to procure miscellaneus military
stuff, the list is to long to mention all here, but not a machine of interest for
And this is, counted from now, less than 20 yrs. Even when the DFX from
White's was well-established, russian detectorist tried to purchase this kind of
detector to get your treasures out of the ground. And I do not think they
would boycott the local dealer...
kind regards & disrespectful

AKA is a famous brand and approx.20 years of building detectors.There are dozens of patents due to the AKA's technology.
Thousands of Signums,Sorexes,Berkuts,Kondors,Piligrims were sold in different countries,including the USA,the UK... and of course,in Russia.
Anyone who is really interested could read a lot of forums and watch a lot of videos proving all said above.
Concerning new models,their capabilities and their prices,it is better to wait for a presentation,first tests and videos and to discuss right away they finish.
It goes without any saying,that all AKAs have prominent detecting data and a very original identification of targets not similar to other brands.
I do not want to say,the brand is better or worse,but it is the original and very effective in searching.
