Bounty Hunter Metal Detector Model Chronology

The chronology of Metal Detector models is listed to provide help to those contemplating the purchase of older detectors, many of which are excellent choices for the hobby.
If you have some definite dates that any models in the list were released, or find what you believe to be an error, please email me so I can make corrections.

Regarding question marks:
Often, the date of the operating manual for a particular model can provide insight to a date of that model's release. However, where the manual has been revised there will be a date which will make the model to appear to have been released at a later date.

Some 'Field Tests' may have been conducted in the year following a model's release.

With regard to Advertisements / Catalogs, unless the Ad / Catalog says the model is newly introduced, it's hard to determine release dates because many times a model will span several years in such literature.
What is needed is the earliest Ad / Catalog available.

Help me gather the best dates from any documentation you may have that has a date which precedes any of the dates listed below.
