About the Product
The Discovery 3300 Metal Detector can zero in on your target with our microprocessor-controlled discrimination, while going deep-seeking. Our one-touch pinpoint will help you locate the target faster so that you can move on to your next treasure.
Pinpointing with the ACE 250 Pinpointing is one of the most important, but simple to learn, techniques you need when treasure hunting. Knowing how to pinpoint correctly can mean the difference between digging a six-inch hole or a 2-inch plug.

What customers say about "Detection"
Bounty Hunter Discovery 3300 Metal Detector with 4-Tone and 11-Segment Digital Target Identification
  • The depth is very very good for only having an eight inch coil.
  • I find if I carefully use the pin point mode with perfect ground balance I can detect coins up to 14 inches.
  • Have used the Bounty Hunter 3300 in my yard and would never have believed how much metal is in it.
  • Found everything from nails to coins and even what at first we couldn't identify a chunk of rusty square heavy metal object.
  • This was a good purchase for the price. I've used it at the beach and in my yard. So far I've found 8 bottle caps, 5 pull tabs, 3 pennies, 2 nails and assorted hunks of tin.

What customers say about "Features"
Bounty Hunter Discovery 3300 Metal Detector with 4-Tone and 11-Segment Digital Target Identification
  • I have to get used to the sounds for the different metals and learn how to read the instrument panel. When I did use it I like that it is light weight and easy to use.
  • The electronics are easy to read and seem to be accurate. When the sound goes off showing, for instance, a quarter; I have found a quarter.
  • The arm brace is comfortable and well designed and helps from tiring out your arm for longer periods of use.
  • The ability to ignore certain type of metal has been amazingly useful.
  • Disappointed. Expected better. Not very accurate or easy to use. These things should also come with the foldable shovel.
