First Hammered falls to the Vista X
« on: September 29, 2022, 07:48 pm »
Hi chaps  :)

I had a little go with the Vista X this afternoon and this little beauty popped up.

I'm really liking the cam locks, the iron volume and the headphone jack on the rear of the battery compartment.

I really didn't know what to buy but this is a worthy replacement for the Smart .

Hopefully I'm going on an organized dig on Sunday to put it through it's paces .

Hope you are all well..

Hi Keith  :)

Yes mate Hex coil.

Really chuffed with the X mate ,this was a cracking little signal at about 4 inches 👍

Got the old Vista Smart in the back of the car as a spare ( he's actually in semi retirement but I haven't told him  ;D)



You been out much ?

It's lovely to get out away from the telly and all the bad news they keep on about 👍

Nicely done. Have you got an ID?

I can get as far as Canterbury mint and Henry III or John, but don't know which.

I haven't Mayhem but thanks for your thoughts.
I think finding them is sometimes easier than the identification  ::)
