Review of Mini Vault Deluxe Gun Safe

The Gunvault GV1000D-DLX Mini Vault Deluxe Gun Safe is a very light 9 pound pistol safe, with all the technology features that typically come with GunVault products. As far as security goes, it has a high strength lock mechanism to keep unwanted hands out.

According to company claims, its fittings are precise to make it difficult to pry open using regular hand tools. It is also equipped with 12 million options for access codes, which can be selected by the user makeing it one of the best biometric gun safe. Correct keypad entries are immediately confirmed by audio feedback and this audio feature can even be shut down when complete silence becomes a priority. For additional security, this product also comes with a tamper indicator to note any invalid entries and its computer blocks access, if invalid entries are made on the keypad repeatedly. Besides, it is constructed with 16 gauge steel for strength and durability.

For further user convenience, this gun safe features GunVault’s patented No-Eyes keypad for instant access in the dark. It also has a foam on the inside, to keep the pistol secure. It is battery operated for better portability and also features a low battery warning signal.

Gunvault GV1000D-DLX Review

While a lot of users appreciate GunVault features such as its No-Eyes Keypad, its solid steel build, and its smooth locking system, those who did buy Gunvault GV1000D-DLX Mini Vault Deluxe Gun Safe have reported several snags.

To begin with, its keyless function, which happens to be one of its more significant selling points, is not too reliable. If you use Gunvault GV1000D-DLX Mini Vault Deluxe Gun Safe consistently, don’t expect this function to last more than a year.

Also, its batteries are not easy to change and they don’t last more than three months. This is way off the mark, if one considers the company claim that batteries should last a year. With this major technical defect, most users regret buying this product.

Users have also reported that the keys can be hard and difficult to press. To make matters worse, the safe door is not reliable, and even experienced users have had trouble with opening and shutting it smoothly. This can be a major problem in high pressure situations, when quick access is a priority.

All in all, with its flimsy technological features and poor battery performance, the Gunvault GV1000D-DLX Mini Vault Deluxe Gun Safe is certainly not a recommended buy.
