I am personally a big fan of their optics equipment, like scopes, binoculars.
The BARSKA company also manufactures high-quality safes, metal detectors, jewelry boxes, wildlife cameras, sunglasses. The BARSKA biometric rifle safe is the large version of their rifle safe.
This is a huge safe!
Dimensions and Capacity
The safe is large enough to hold a rifle with scope and other accessories, as well as a shotgun. This safe would make a great addition for a home, as it’s small enough to fit into a closet, or other desired space and large enough to fulfill its purpose of holding larger firearms. The safe’s outer dimensions are 57 inches x 13.75 Inches x 13.75 inches. The safe’s inner dimensions are slightly smaller, but one reviewer mentions having no problem fitting his 50-inch shotgun. The safe is large and weighs 114 pounds.
It’s a little weird that this “Large” model has roughly the same specs as the “Extra Large” version in every dimension but product weight.
This safe has a large capacity as compared to other biometric safes on the market, which is a definite plus. Its weight provides it with a certain security that smaller safes cannot provide.
Biometric Safe Opening Technology
The BARSKA biometric rifle safe employs fingerprint technology which BARSKA boasts provides easier access to the contents of the safe. This feature allows users to store up to 120 unique fingerprints. Many biometric safes work best when each fingerprint is stored at several angles.
This feature is a wonderful addition, as it allows safe users an easier and speedier access to the contents within the safe. Once you swipe your finger, the safe immediately opens gaining instant access to whatever is kept inside. For home protection, ease of access is absolutely important for a gun-safe.
Construction, Mounting and Other Features
The lock itself has a five point deadbolt feature. This provides a definite positive for this safe, because this would deter an intruder from having access to the contents of the safe. Potentially one of my favorite features of this safe, is that it has an internal removable 12 position storage rack for rifles and shotguns.
Even better, the safe also has a removable storage shelf on the door, providing endless possibilities. The safe is made entirely of steel, leaving it very sturdy in structure, and very secure from break in. The safe is equipped with a wonderful interior lining to provide protection for valuables.
The safe comes with two keys and a separate access point, which is a great failsafe. The safe runs off of 4-AA batteries, which are included in the purchase. The safe comes with six pre-drilled mounting holes, so that it can easily be secured to a wall with included mounting hardware. The safe, like all BARSKA products is covered by a one year limited warranty.

This safe has several customer reviews on Amazon, slightly skewed toward the positive with a 3.5 star average rating. Reviewer Joel Diaz reports being “pleasantly surprised,” and that “everything works great.”
Others were not so enthusiastic, complaining about construction quality and wobbly footing.
