  1. The Last Hodan Picks!


    Going, going…gone! After nearly three decades of making some of the highest quality picks and digging tools, Hodan Machine & MFG is closing their doors. We have been a proud supporter of their USA made products and were saddened to see them go. Luckily, AZO was able to snatch up the last of their remaining stock. If you are looking for a new metal detecting/prospecting pick don’t wait much longer – they are going fast!


    We have three models available: the ProPick, the 24”, and 16” versions. Prices start at only $43. For more info: http://www.arizonaou...gging-tools/10/



  2. We have a near-new Minelab 8” Round Monoloop Commander Coil for sale. Easy to maneuver around rocks & brush and has excellent sensitivity! One of the most popular coils that Minelab manufacturers. It is compatible with any Minelab GPX, GP, or SD Series gold machine. It will also fit the Whites TDI. There are a few scratches on the bottom of the skid plate, but aside from that it is like new.


    Forum price is only $149 + $5 shipping. Contact 1.928.777.0267, or info@arizonaoutback.com.


  3. Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505


    We recently acquired this near-new detector. Aside from a little dust, it is in perfect working order. It is supplied with an 8” concentric coil. It can be used to hunt old coins, jewelry and valuable relics. A fun detector that’s easy to tune and with many automatic features that make it perfect for beginners as well as experienced treasure hunters of all ages. Meter displays depth of target and continuous target discrimination. 5 modes of operation! Automatic features let you turn it on and immediately start hunting.

    Metal Detector Training Classes with Chris Gholson

    We are excited to announce that Arizona Outback will be kicking off our Metal Detecting & Gold Prospecting Training Classes this October 2019. These classes will be held in the goldfields of central Arizona in the Bradshaw Mountains on Private Mining Claims. This region is home to some of the richest gold-bearing ground in the entire state. Many thousands of nuggets have been found in these mountains over the years by metal detectorists, and many are still being found today.


    post-74770-0-50724500-1441320736_thumb.jpg post-74770-0-49238200-1441320744_thumb.jpg post-74770-0-29492400-1441320768_thumb.jpg

    The purpose of these classes is to provide the knowledge and hands-on training that is needed to increases a person's odds of finding gold with a detector. Some of the topics covered will include: Understanding the Detectors Controls, Ground Balancing, Proper Technique, Target Recovery, Pinpointing, Recognizing Geological Clues, Prospecting Safety, and Much More. Your host will be renowned prospector and author Chris Gholson, who has traveled the globe in search of gold with his detector. He has nearly 25 years experience and can cut your learning curve and put you on the fast track for success!

    We can accommodate most all major brands of detectors, however we do specialize in Minelab. If you don't own your own metal detector that's not a problem - you are welcome to use ours! In fact, we have some of the most advanced detectors made by MINELAB Electronics on hand for those without their own equipment. Best of all, there's no extra charge for a day's rental! Also included in the price is a 3-day Claim Pass. This pass allows you to put your newfound knowledge to work and prospect on the claims for up to three days after your lesson. And of course you keep everything you find!

  6. HD Skids for Nugget Finder


    Every detectorist knows that the skid plate is a coil’s first line of defense while out in the goldfields. Whether it’s being scrubbed along the ground or smacked into the side of a rock, the skid plate is the first thing to absorb this abuse. Some folks will take a year to wear one out; others that put in long, hard hours may burn through one in a month. Whether you are a hardcore hunter or the occasional weekend warrior, you may be interested in these new heavy-duty skid plates from Nugget Finder.


    The HD Skids are at least double the strength of the standard skid plates and are designed to fit the NF Advantage series. They are slightly thicker and more rigid, but the gains in weight are minimal. We currently have the following sizes in stock and ready to ship.


    8” Ellip.(solid) - $20

    12” Ellip. (solid) - $24

    14 x 7” Ellip. (solid) - $25

    14 x 9” Ellip. (open) - $27

    16” Round (open) - $32

    17” Ellip. (open) - $30


    Quantities at the moment are limited. They are not shown on the website yet, but they are available. To order please call 1.928.777.0267, or email: info@arizonaoutback.com. The standard grey colored skids are also in stock. Valid until 8/3/15, buy any three (3) skids of any combination and receive FREE SHIPPING!

  16. Customer Scores with the SDC 2300!

    Here is a short testimonial we received this morning from a customer in California.


    “Dear AZO, I could not wait to test my new SDC2300 which arrived yesterday. So today I went to a nearby place where I had found gold before. And here is a 0.31-g nugget found at the depth of 1.5". I like the machine very much, and even the armrest that others complain about is not a problem for me. Many thanks for the great deal on the detector!”
