Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors have been around for quite some time. They are now manufactured by First Texas U.S.A. who also design and produce the very well liked Fisher and Teknetics metal detectors -
Please take some time out to have a quick look into the History Of Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors -
Our engineers started with a clean slate to redefine state-of-the-art. Our modern user interfaces are easier to learn to use properly than any other high performance detectors on the market. Easier to learn means faster to master and more performance in your hands, in the field, in less time than imagined possible.
The Teknetics legacy continues and we hope you will join in on the fun.

FISHER RELIC HUNTING
"Fisher Research Labs - was founded in 1931 by Dr. Gerhard R. Fisher, the world renowned engineer and inventor who was the first to receive a patent for the metal detector. From its simple beginnings in Fisher’s garage, Fisher Research Labs is a made-in-America success story. The world’s oldest metal detector business, Fisher Labs uses the latest in technology to build the most trusted products in the industry." - more here
The M-Scope was manufactured by the Fisher Research Laboratory, Inc., of Palo Alto, California. Designed for uranium prospecting, it came with a shoulder strap and a GM detector at the end of a 36” “walking stick” probe. The latter eliminated the need to bend over to inspect ore and it made it easier to access hard-to-reach places. The wooden case which protected the electronics from rain and dust, had a hinged top that when opened allowed access to the controls.
The meter scale, which goes from 0 – 100 in arbitrary units, is unusual in that it reads from right to left with the resting position of the needle at 100. The only control, aside from the on/off switch, is the audio volume control.
Detector: glass wall GM (clear glass and cylindrical copper cathode)
Range: one scale, 0 – 100 in arbitrary units.
Audio: speaker and headphones
Size: 5” x 9.5” x 9.5”
Batteries: two 1.5 volt and one 67.5 volt
Two mysterious aspects of the M-Scope are its name and the patent number (2,066,561), both of which are identified on a plate affixed to the lid of the box. The patent, issued to G.R. Fisher in 1933, is for a metal detector known as the "Metalloscope.” My guess is that the company abbreviated this to "M-Scope" and for some unknown reason (probably a lack of imagination) decided to apply this term to a variety of their products including their portable radiation detectors. In the early 1950s, Fisher produced a very similar instrument that used a GM walking stick. This instrument, the Model C-16, was also referred to as the "M-scope" but it had a metal case rather than a wooden one like the "M-scope" in the collection..
This particular example was used by a prospector in the Maryville region of east Tennessee.
Family-owned White’s Electronics manufactures the best metal detectors for recreation, security, and industry. Taking advantage of the latest research and development has made White’s Electronics a leader in the field of metal detecting.
White's Electronics designs and builds metal detectors in Sweet Home, Oregon. A second facility in Inverness, Scotland, serves Europe and Asia.
The company is led by Ken and Mary White, guided by the same philosophy that was so successful for Ken's father when he began the company in 1950.
"Give the customers quality and value, and treat your employees like family."
That's the mission of White's Electronics.
