About the Garrett ACE 250 metal detector

The Garrett ACE 250 metal detector is a reasonably priced, excellent all-around metal detector.

We highly recommend the ACE 250 for both beginners and seasoned fossickers. You can use the ACE 250 to hunt for coins (old and new), jewelry, relics, artefacts, and other buried valuables. We have friends with one of these units and it has lasted well for years. They recommend it best for coin hunting. The Garrett brand is one we don’t hesitate to recommend because we’ve owned one ourselves and several friends own them, too.

You’ll find this metal detector is both easy to tune and easy to use.

A combination of its price and features has seen the ACE 250 become one of the world’s most popular metal detectors. Like its little brother, the ACE 150, it’s easy to assemble straight out of the box. It’s not too heavy and the arm cuff is adjustable and comfortable, so your arm won’t tire quickly. You’ll even find that the kids can manage it. Do your bench test and you’ll be ready to start hunting.

You can buy the metal detector on its own, or for a few dollars more, get a whole package with the metal detector coil plus headphones, or with digging equipment.
