Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Megapolis Reliable yet inconsistent
Only works on the first go about 70 percent of the time for me, but can get if to open if I switch to a different programmed finger. So program a couple of fingers on each hand and practice frequently so you know what to expect should an emergency arises. It opens with an audible clunk, it is not silent. The light that comes on when opening shines down on the weapon and is a nice touch.
I do trust that this will work when I need it to, it just may take a couple of tries to get it open. Not sure about the wife, she doesn't think she could recall a password under duress, so I chose this one.
I would recommend this product if you think you 10 seconds to open, not just 2 or 3 seconds.

Pricey but performs flawlessly. Instructions are flawed but call customer service for help.

Works fantastic easy to install. Holds handgun firmly and I like that you can log multiple fingerprints

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chris Good safe. Press softly when programming
Ordered this safe about a month ago. I was frustrated at first bc I couldn't get the biometric to accept my finger print, I called customer service at gun vault and they were useless. She told me that I'm part of the small percentage of people that it's just unable to read my prints, whatever that means. I was getting rdy to box it up and send it back when my wife says let me try. She programmed her print the first try. She watched me do it again and said no you have to scan softer. She was right lol. Using her method it accepting my next two prints. I finger print people for a living, I've never pressed this soft on any other software but go figure. Also practice opening it several times, like 100 plus bc it is pretty particular on how easy it is to open. I can usually get it opened in about 10 seconds max so I like it and I'm keeping it. Light mechanism works well, I have it bedside w a glock 21 as we speak. Good safe once you can get it to read your prints.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kam5 Major flaw
The safe design is fantastic, but it has 1 major flaw. The fingerprint reader just doesn't work well. I have a Barska biometric safe that works the 1st time 100% of the time. The reader on this safe is a swipe type that can take multiple attempts to get the safe to open. This completely defeats the purpose of the safe. I would buy this safe with the push button combo but would never recommend the biometric version. It is a shame because as staed earlier, Barska has proven there are goor readers on the market. Why would GunVault choose to put such a poor reader on their safe?

It's great as I like how the gun is in ready mode to grab. The finger print scanner takes a few tries to open is the only con I have.

Well built for its purpose, Hard to program fingerprints, instruction sheet that comes with safe not clear on programming, go on line and find a more more detailed sheet, wife fingerprints worked well, mind won't work at all. So if you buy be prepared to return if your prints won't program .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by E1 Works like a charm!
I love this vault so much that I bought a few for other areas of my home and office- one on each nightstand, one under my desk and one in the living room. This safe works well and is built to last.
