garrett metal detectors

Garrett Metal Detectors

The Garrett name has come to stand for more than just metal detection; it is a philosophy for unparalleled customer satisfaction. Garrett is passionate about metal detectors. Charles Garrett founded this company in 1964. His passion for treasure hunting stemmed from his love of the film Treasure Island; his interest in treasure hunting stemmed from the films scene where pirate treasure is found in a cave. This developed into an enthusiasm for metal detecting and has driven him to develop the best metal detectors, selling them for a fair and reasonable cost.

Regton has a full range of metal detectors from Garrett: Euro Ace, Ace 150 and Ace 250. We also stock the GTI 2500, GTI1500, Sea Hunter Mk II, Scorpion Goldstinger, and Garrett detecting accessories.
