My cibola black edition when set to minimum disc will just break on a medium iron nail. Maybe that edition used the ed120?

Tejon has the dual ed180's and if I break on the same iron nail which is right on the iron line I can even nudge up a little and completely silence the nail and still be able to pick out a trime or half dime few inches below using the stock concentric. This is why I use the Tejon for what are deemed hunted out sites and my only choice for old properties.

I never used a Vaquero or any of the epsilon machines so don't know how they compare.

When first introduced both the Vaquero and Cibola were listed as ED-120 and then at a time listed as ED-180. But they were neither and had the ED-160ish range of acceptance. The response on the Nail at minimum Disc. can be partly due to the particular nail metal make-up, and it could also have been influenced by any changes in the GB setting. For the most part, and I just used 4 ED-120 units to double-check, when at minimum three different Iron Nails we silent to hardly a tick.

I used to use the Tejón a bit but ended up preferring my Bandido II µMAX, or if I wanted to hear some Iron, especially Iron Nails, then I favored a 2-Tone model where I just accept most Nails so I am just up a little from '0' Disc. Today in my Outfit those would be the Nokta Relic, Fisher F-75+ and F-19.
