This quick access biometric rifle gun safe lets you keep your rifles, pistols and ammo within your reach in case of emergencies with a quick scan of the fingerprint. The interior is designed to keep up to 4 rifles. There is a removable section rifle safe barrel holder inside to keep the rifles lined up and ready for any emergencies. The quick access biometric rifle safe is designed with six mounting points at the back of the safe to make it attach to the wall. This ensures added safety and security as it also means it will not topple over you in case of an earthquake. There is a three point deadbolt locking system with a solid steel construction so that you can be assured that no unauthorized person will be able to get hold of your valuables. In case of battery failure the faceplate can be removed to reveal a backup key lock.

Biometric Technology

The biometric safe of the gun safe is most secure as it keeps all your valuables stored safely in your home. You will definitely have your peace of mind with the use of this gun safe as it has the biometric technology and can be opened with up to 120 specifically stored finger prints of your choosing. The finger print detection technology can be a bit of a hit or miss at first but you need to be tactful here to make the biometric technology work in your way. You need to capture different fingers in multiple positions to make the biometric rifle safe in your benefit. Once you have all these finger prints installed, you will see that you are being able to open the lock in almost every single time. Yes, it can be a bit of a hassle and time consuming, but it will surely benefit you in the long run.

Safety Measures

The Barska quick access biometric rifle safe comes fully equipped with all the necessary safety measures to keep it away from unauthorized people and intruders. It is true that this is not a fireproof or waterproof safe and it will not necessarily keep the strong tools away from breaking or prying it open, but it can easily keep it out of the direct reach of such people and provide you with ample peace of mind. This storage will ensure that your belongings and defense weapons and ammos are safely tucked inside. Especially if you have curious children in your house this becomes even more necessary. The Barska quick access rifle safe is California DOJ approved as well so you know you are getting a decent deal out of it.

No Noise

There is a Silent Access Feature added with the biometric rifle safe to keep the beeping noises at bay if they tend to annoy you. It is also to change the sound setting and make it completely mute as well. Apart from saving you from getting annoyed, you also get to make yourself discreet if there is an intruder in your house and you need to get your firearms out to defend yourself and your family against that potential threat. You don’t have to alert the intruder by letting them aware of your presence so this feature in my opinion is a necessary for any gun safe.

What Is Included

The package of the Barska quick access biometric rifle safe includes the biometric rifle safe, a mounting hardware, two backup keys and batteries. The backup keys are a mean of emergency to let you gain entry even if the batteries run out without you noticing and the rifle safe shuts down, leaving you unable to get hold of your belongings by using the biometric finger print lock combination anymore.

The rifle safe gives out a warning while the batteries run low so that you get to change the batteries before the safe completely shuts down.
