Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505 Review

The Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505 is a well-priced metal detector that packs a lot of useful features. Users report great depth performance and accurate target ID readings. It has returnable ground balance controls for mineralized grounds.

There are two different coils included; 4 and 8-inch variants. Users report that the machine is able to tune out junk in trashy areas very effectively.

Battery life could be better with only 6 to 8 hours of continuous operation. Otherwise, it is a light and easy to use machine.
