    My coil came from MSR (replacement) not Minelab, it dont look any different to me. When I fitted the shaft between the lugs there is still a gap & consequently the lugs do pull in a tiny amount when...

    I know what your saying here Mal makes sense but this is a brand new machine so quality control must be poor to send the detector out like this in the first place. Its up to the manufacturer to make...

    Only had the machine since March 2019 so dont think inserts should be worn that much. I have probably only been out with it maybe 20 or 30 times. the coil does seem loose when the lower shaft is...
