Counterfeit Information

Fisher Research Labs® is a subsidiary of First Texas Products Corporation. All Fisher Products are designed, assembled, tested for quality control, and shipped from our factory in El Paso, Texas, USA.

Fisher Research Labs® manufactures products sold worldwide. Because counterfeit products are an unfortunate reality, we recommend purchasing (and using) products sold only by our official store, or from one of our authorized dealers/retailers.

Counterfeit products can be difficult to identify, the differences often subtle. But when purchased elsewhere, you're unlikely to get an authentic Fisher product.

Authentic Fisher Research Labs® products are engineered and manufactured with high-quality materials, and they're always quality-tested before leaving our factory. Since counterfeit or fake devices are not built or tested to these standards, they might perform poorly or malfunction. 

Warning: Chinese manufacturers have produced counterfeits of Fisher Metal Detectors. These counterfeit detectors have the appearance of our authentic products, but not the quality or performance. 

Fisher Research Labs® is dedicated to the removal of counterfeit products being sold online.  If you think you've purchased a counterfeit device, or you've seen what you believe are fake devices being sold, please report it here by filling out the form below.

We take counterfeiting very seriously and investigate every potential counterfeit case reported to us.
