I purchased my Omega from these guys. Great price and prompt delivery.

Although the detector arrived with a missing piece I let the guy know and a replacement piece was promptly sent. All good.

Steve, how long ago did you get your Etrac from Windy City.  Do they still ship to Aus?

Thinking of buying a few items for Windy City,Not sure about Postage though, doesnt say what it is in the Checkout, So sent off an email
Looking at buying a Fisher F4 and a few accessories ,But depending what the postage is might be better upgrading to the F5 as they say free international shipping on the F5

Glyde62,

The postage is usually between $50 and $70 depending on 'prioty' or 'express' delivery options. I'm not sure if that changes with the delivery of a detector.

Cheers,

Just bought an E-Trac from Ron at Windy City.  $1640 delivered for Detector, Garrett Pro Pointer, Lesch Digger, Coin Probe and Lots More.  Very good to deal with and would recommend to anyone.

I just ordered a Teknetics G2 and pistol probe from Windy City Detectors, all up cost $735 including express delivery.

Ron was great to deal with, and the order was shipped promptly.
Windy City has my recommendation, you can't beat those prices!

Cheers
Paul

Came home today to find the G2 delivered.
Nine days from first email to my door.
Fantastic service from Windy City Detectors, I will definitely be looking at them for future purchases.

also did customs hit you up with a bill, as the order is over 1000 dollars

 ???   hi all, it  seems quite  a few peeps are still buying their detectors  over seas, and i not surprised. ::)
 what were your thoughts tho, regarding  warranty  issues? i noticed  a certain  model had  bad reviews in the  u.s.a.    and a few replacement  returns, so that would be a concern. just curious.  cheers. 8)
