GTX3030: Chinese-made fake Minelab CTX 3030. Did it really happen?

A GTX3030 metal detector appeared on Chinese websites. It’s strange but this one looks a bit similar to the already existing Minelab CTX 3030. Don’t pay attention, it’s just a coincidence.

I wonder whether Chinese could really fake the Minelab CTX 3030? Or they are selling e-waste in the likeness of a detector? Continue reading

Or does it simply look like the pinpointer from the American manufacturer and it’s a random coincidence? And another thing I have wondered about: the novelty looks better that the original! Let’s see how it works… Continue reading
