Fisher 1270

Fisher 1270

The Fisher 1270 is one of the easiest to tune and understand of any high-performance, multi-purpose metal detector. The arm rest is comfortably positioned above the controls and adjustable to fit your arm while the grip is made from durable, high-friction foam. Meanwhile the control box is packed with customizable features.

The model we’re featuring comes standard with an 8” bi-axial searchcoil. It’s versatile and deep-seeking, making it effective for any type of detecting. Because it is waterproof you can submerge this coil into water without any adverse affect on the operation of the detector – this is perfect for hunting in the shallow waters of beaches and rivers as well as on land!

The 1270 is considered high-performance, specifically in regards to finding valuable coins, rings, and gold from upper ground levels. Treasure hunters have found single coins as deep as 18 and 20 inches underground! We consider the 1270 to be super sensitive with extreme depth recognition and impressive iron discrimination. To save you time searching and digging the 1270 has a trigger switch that works in both zero-motion pinpointing and mode changes. And if you don’t want to be alerted to your finds with an audible beep, simply activate the 1270’s “silencer” for silent (3rd derivative) discrimination.

The virtual toolbox of features on the 1270’s control box includes a “Sensitivity Control,” three search modes (normal discrimination, enhanced iron discrimination, and all-metal ground balance search), volume control with silencer, and a battery indication light. Patented Double-Derivative circuitry ignores ground minerals and junk without having to whip the search coil rapidly back and forth. Turn-on-and-go operation means that there's no ground-reject control, no tuner and no threshold tone. Just set your Sensitivity and Discrimination controls and start Treasure Hunting.

Snap, crackle and pop. Just like the advertisement for a breakfast cereal years ago, the sounds of the Fisher 1270 are also distinct.

In no time at all, a beginner will start to hear the differences in the tones of the detector. While walking the detector operator can search the terrain in front of them and choose a path to follow. Their ears are concentrating on the targets the detector is locating. Slight differences in the pitch and length of the tone tell the operator what is buried beneath the ground.

A flick of your finger will either discriminate or pinpoint the target. This is one of the greatest features of the Fisher 1270.You never need to look down at the detector until pinpointing an object. Your eyes are concentrating on the beautiful outdoors while you ears are searching for buried treasures. The ease in which the detector fits into your arm is great when using it for long periods of time.

Coins, rings and other relics are easily found just by listening to what your detector is telling you. Stream beds and expose bedrock in and around streams are great for locating lost items. While on a family picnic one day, I started to cross a stream and I almost fell in. I thought of the many people that probably did slip and fall into the shallow pool or decide to wade in the pool just below the bedrock of the stream bed.

I returned with my detector and searched the cracks in the bedrock and the shallow pool next to it. I found 25 quarters, a V nickel, silver charms and an assortment of other items. I used a slim probe to reach in to the cracks of the rocks and a strainer to check the areas containing sand and small gravel. Who would have thought by almost falling into a creek I would have discovered a great place to detect.

This particular park has produced hundreds coins and over a dozen rings. Two of the rings were high school class rings and were returned to the owners. Detecting is a great family activity everyone can enjoy. My family and I sure do.

The Civil War came to my county over 140 years ago. Relic hunters came in the sixties using World War II mine detectors moving up to modern machines at every point of their development.

Eight years ago, I bought a Fisher 1270. This purchase gave me all the features of the 1265 and the heightened sensitivity of a model upgrade. The run-silent feature is still a great plus for me. When a target is hit, there is a bold, solid signal to get the heart racing. Pinpointing is a snap. The 1270 does everything you want a relic hunting, coin shooting, detector to do without all the cosmetic bells and whistles.

I dig bullets routinely at ten inches. Confederate and Union buttons are not lost in ground chatter. I have dug musket percussion caps at a quarter of an inch getting a pronounced "blip". The signal from Shell fragments at eighteen inches or deeper will knock your headphones off. Take the 1270 coinshooting at the neighborhood park. Hunt slowly.

You'll find everything under your feet. Once I found an 1853 liberty seated dime. If you want a reliable, workhorse, then look no further. And if I can hunt with it for the next twenty years, that is all the better. Do I recommend it? You bet!

I use a Fisher model CZ7A. I guess my model is too old to be listed about so I picked the closest model to the one that I have now. Which I personally think is a great detector. It’s very user friendly and the user button tabs are very easy on old eyes. It’s easy to discover out or in any kind of metal. It has a very easy ground balancing feature and the depth is unreal.

I hunt coins and civil war relics and my coin count has gone through the roof so to speak. The jewelry count is pretty nice as well. One of the rings that I found paid for the detector and more. The way that Fisher built the CZ7A is very sturdy and strong, with an easy hip mount feature to lighten the shaft for better swinging action and control. The pinpoint feature on the fisher is very nice and dead on the target. I use a stock coil and it has proved to be very good for this model. I know the question "Why have I not upgraded to a newer/better model?”

In my opinion, I think I have a very good detector, and I would put it up against any newer model on today’s market. I was hunting a site on day and I just happened to be swing a little to fast and caught by accident the sound of zinc (CW bullet) on my detector. So I slowed down the swing over the target and it was extremely faint. It was so faint that I could barely hear it in my headphones. After digging down 12 inches, I saw nothing. But the fisher was telling me that something was still in the hole so after removing another four to five inches of soil I saw the back side of a CW breast plate. Then about 3 months later at another site the same thing happened. It had the same sound and almost the same depth, so that made two plates.

I now own two detectors Fisher CZ7A and a Whites MXT, and I would recommend either one of these find machines to any beginner or advanced detectorist.

I have been a metal detector user for more than 25 years. My first detector was an old Garret BFO unit which at the time was state of the art. I found many great finds with that old detector, including a Spanish piece of 8, countless silver coins, and of course equally countless metallic junk.

However, this detector preceded the VLF ground balance detectors with the discriminate feature. My very first quality detector was purchased from a friend who had a Fisher 551-d for sale. This was the detector that made me a true believer. As is always true with those of us in the metal detecting hobby, we eagerly await news of the latest innovation. And then, one day back in the 60's or early 70's Kellyco sent me a brochure for Chuck Neumann’s "Daytona" metal detector. I bought one from Kellyco, and I was finding deep coins that my compatriots passed over. I still have that old Daytona GDB, but it has been relegated to the storage area when I failed to locate a replacement stem.

I now use a Fisher 1265x (note that you folks don't list this unit, so I chose the nearest fisher from your list.) That Fisher is my very favorite detector; indeed it has become as familiar to me as my favorite digging boots! I am 74 years of age and on fixed income, and the newer fishers, though I look at them with unbridled lust, will never be mine. Incidentally, I am delighted that Kellyco has an online site. I always looked forward to your tabloid "newspaper" mailing. As I go through the online catalog with all those wonderful detectors, a song from my youth comes to mind: "I can see, no matter how near you'll be, you'll never belong to me, but I can dream, can't I?"

Never owned one but i have had a 1266 xb for more than 12 years . I have found countless numbers of bulletts and buttons plus buckles and one derringer. not counting all the coins
that i have dug over the years. to me Fisher is the only way to go if ya want the good stuff, with out all the trash.so if the 1270 is as good as its older brother it is top of the line< fine>.
or FIND!! keep makin the best detector for my money! Easy to tune Easy to operate, Longlasting battery life.

My brother and I own 5 Fishers, 1265-x and 1270s. They are very rugged as I use them in muddy & wet creek beds. I'm not pleased with the extra weight on the spider coil and heavy gauge coil wire. My right arm starts to hurt from too much swinging. The Fishers are much easier than the old box type machines which I've owned. I wish the knobs had clicks because they easily get bumped off their set point. I prefer the 1265-X coil because root and limbs don't get caught in it like the open spider coils do. The screwed on battery cover was a plus. IF I NEEDED A NEW MACHINE IT WOULD BE THE 1270. I've always recommended a Fisher.
