Hi Lawrence, Thank you for the date., I am looking for an advert or service sheet to confirm age, I searched relevant Argos cat, nothing found. Searching internet I found one for sale originally bought from Argos catalogue Autumn 1978 ! search catalogue and nothing found same with Autumn 1988. I suppose Argos sold the Discoverer ?

Just confirming what Lawtence says, the earliest mention of the GR1AX in the 2003 Philips Philips Model Number Survey is 1989.

The attached pdf is searchable.
