Bounty Hunter Commando Metal Detector Review

The most important thing to remember is that this the "Commando".

The name Commando could not be more apt here. This is not simply a smaller version of one of Bounty Hunter's top models. Instead, this Bounty Hunter Commando Metal Detector a model that has been especially designed with kids in mind. The target age range here is 6-12. This is nice and broad as it takes in kids that are starting to explore the world around them as well as the older kids turning the game into a hobby. By the age of twelve, they will start to outgrow this machine in more ways than one It will be a little too small to handle and it won’t have all the tools of the grown-up machine that they will now crave. If they have gone through 6 years with this machine and are still interested, it is worth upgrading to a bigger, better model.

The hardware has clearly been designed with younger users in mind because it is light enough to carry and ergonomically designed for their size and shape. It measures in at 506022 inches and has a weight of just 5.6 ounces, so there should be no concerns about it being too cumbersome for smaller children.

It is important for parents to remember that this is not a toy. This is the real thing, just scaled down for the needs of children.


There are a number of reports of parents and grandparents being asked for some kind of metal detector by their kids or grandkids. Some will have gone for the cheap and cheerful "toy" option to let them have some fun. Others decided on this # because it seemed like more of a reliable, interesting model. There are high hopes that this is a model that can last for a long time and user testimonials suggest there is a lot more to this than a "toy" for a quick fad.

This status is seen in the features and software of this machine. Simply put, a basic toy model for a few games would not have the features of this Bounty Hunter Commando Metal Detector product. There is a level of complexity to this machine and enough adjustments that it really does fed, and act, like a real "grown up" metal detector. This machine is able to detect gold, silver, brass, aluminum, iron and steel. The sensitivity can be adjusted manually in order to make the search easier or more interesting for the child, depending on their capabilities. The additional bonus here is that the interface is also simple enough to understand that kids will quickly pick up how to adjust the power and elimination themselves.
