Is q 40 also good for gold detecting
The Q40 Is an absolutely amazing detector but isn't a gold detector. Yes it will find gold coins, relics and jewellery all day long but if the ground mineralisation is too high, like it often is in gold bearing ground it might struggle to cut through and give a clear signal. I'd suggest looking at the Teknetics G2+ Camo or the T2 Limited found here.
Can you get a solid base of the metal detector instead of the one shown in the picture?
The model comes with the one as shown but there are many aftermarket coils that do have solid covers. Some people like a solid cover as they like to throw their dirt ontop of the cover to see if the target is there. However it is quicker and easier to either wave your scoop or handfuls of dirt over the coil to find your target. This also keeps your coil cleaner and gives less wear and tear.
