Viking VK40

Post by ian59 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 5:23 pm

Hi , took the plunge today and ordered a new VK40 from Crawfords Metal Detectors. Had a Viking 5 when I first started in the hobby , remember finding spent .303 cartridges a lot in the woods.
These days the wife and I like to pitch up our caravan on a coastal site where I can scan the beach , this is my favourite detecting location.
I have a Cscope cs660 which I will be keeping it,s nice and simple, light as well and works.
Looking forward to seeing how the VK40 holds up, especially as it's got switchable motion/non motion plus pinpoint abilities plus the LCD target i.d. screen.
Got to wait four weeks till next mini break in caravan but hopefully will be able to carry out some preliminary testing beforehand.

Hi,

I found my first ever hammered with a VK40, a very nice Lizzie shilling.

Very competent machine, good luck.

PS If you get a reading of 90 or so and it is deep it is probably large iron
