    GPZ 7000 Video Link

    That vid is a short tease.You can get a 11" or 20" coil as add on's they come with lower shafts as i read.Three modes small gold .general.or deep says deep will miss small shallow gold and small will miss some deep.Check out clarks post GPZ7000 photos and info you can read the owers manual looks a little complicated to me just my H.O. and pricey i bet
  4. Doc's are a little longer than standard ones and the lower are heavy duty so they are heavier in weight compared to stock lowers so what you gain on top you loose on bottom.Use of a hip stick and your bungee helps for the weight and swinging long hours.

    Rifle found leaning on tree!

    Chris i think you ment a 1873, they researched it and it was made in 1882 by the serial #.I and my brother found a spring field trap door 45-70 in the goldfield mts back in 69 or 70.It was stuck in a small cave in a rock outcrop.it was missing the trigger and hammer, broke in half. Found a live round on the ground'went back with my dad later and his metal detector found two more live rounds they had us calvery on the primers.It was so cool only if it could talk there were apache battles in the area. Being a dumb kid i sold it for ten dollars to some lady..'
  6. Bret most buyers in az will only pay 80% of spot,nuggets like you have should be worth more but I don't know where in az.You could try Gus in Idaho at www.NaturalGoldTrader.com. I'll PM his #

    I ran a 17" NF elip most the time,i wanted to run a 14" but because we were prospecting new ground they wanted me to swing the 17".The ones using 14's found more nuggets but they were small ones mostly,they were working scrapes and know areas.My job was to try and exspand the areas.I did swing a 12" round in some salty ground,It had been chained but with the 12" I found several small nuggets the ones with 14"s found lots also, we took 60+ nuggets out of the chained area it was even cross chained in places,So don't let chain marks scare you off. I used the 8" sadie to sqeeze a few nuggets out of the creeks and to get some crumbs of speci's in some reef holes. A few were swinging 18" or 20" round monos and they did well.There is alot of open ground were the bigger coils work well,and on the deeper ground in the low areas were the big nugs hide they are the ones to swing. I was surprised at how small some nugs were I found with the 17".
