Fisher Research Laboratories 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.
As I find earlier dated advertisements or brochures referencing certain models I revise the introduction dates.
