About Us

Fort Bedford Metal Detectors was founded in April 2009 by Bob McGinnis in the small, historic town of Bedford, PA.   An avid history enthusiast and relic hunter, Bob served the needs of the local relic hunting community for a few years until life circumstances prevented him from maintaining the high level of service his customers had grown to expect from him.  To avoid under performing and dis-servicing any customers in August 2013, he sold the business to me, Keith Leppert, and it was moved to its present location in Alum Bank, PA.  I also have a passion for history and a strong desire to serve the relic hunting community by providing high quality products at a reasonable price while striving to deliver the absolute highest quality service to you, the customer.  We appreciate you giving us the chance to provide the equipment you need to make your hunts a complete success!

We operate our business primarily over this website and via the phone, which means we have a small store area at this time.  We are very happy to show and demonstrate detectors for you, but we would need to set up an appointment.   Our new retail location will be open real soon, so you can walk in anytime to check out our stock of detectors and accessories.   We would love to show them to you - simply give us a call and we can arrange a time to meet and show you the equipment in person.

Our principal business address is:

Fort Bedford Metal Detectors

190 Oak Shade Road

Alum Bank, PA 15521

The location is a little out of the way, but the price and service will make it worth the trip!  Just remember to give us a call to set up an appointment that suits your needs.
