Default Is the DRS X1 Pro a legitimate machine?

I found this machine from this link and am interested in purchasing it. Is the machine good? Does anyone own this machine or perhaps anything from DRS for that matter? https://www.metaldetector.com/drs-proradar-x1-pro

I bought one of these a couple of years ago. I was looking for a 327 engine block that went missing while renovating a 1967 Corvette. We have huge gophers and squirrels here in Idaho plus sink holes pop up about once a month, so I thought this might do the trick.

Didn't find the engine block, but found $2.56 in clad so she should pay for herself in about 45 more years.

Finally found the 327 using my Xterra 705 in All Engine Block mode. Basically discriminated out everything except engine blocks and beaver tails (of course). It was about 20' up an old oak tree in a squirrel's nest. Glad it wasn't in the sink hole.

It's for sale, although I'd hate to get rid of her before she's paid for herself.

Hope this helps. P.M. if you're interested, might trade for squirrel traps.

Interesting information on their website. I think it's for real.

With these specialized (and expensive) scanning detectors, though, there are various technologies and approaches used. You really want to talk to people who know something about them to make sure you are using the right technology and machine for whatever it is you have in mind.

I've noticed that Nokta/Macro have some scanning detectors. If they work, they might represent good bang for the buck.

Want to buy a bridge?
Oh...maybe not such a good idea, because you might end up throwing yourself off of it when you discover that you just gave shysters that much hard earned for a quackbox.

Run Forrest! Run!

1st post on a detecting forum tells me little to no experience....asking about purchasing an $11,000 machine? Makes perfect sense

Somebody bought a treasure map off Ebay......
