Gunvault prides itself on using top-of-the-line quality materials, and providing industry-leading products to their loyal customers. Additionally, Gunvault invested in high-quality biometrics technology for quick access to the contents of their safes. The Gunvault MicroVault XL MVB1000 is no exception to their high quality standards.

Dimensions and Capacity

The safe has the capacity to hold a small pistol and several personal belongings. Made with the customer in mind, this safe features a protective foam lining and elastic straps to hold your items in place. It also has pockets for extra storage, which you could use to store important documents while traveling like a passport or tickets.

Biometric Gun Safe Technology

This safe features top of the line biometrics technology with an extremely low false reading report percentage. Also leading the industry, this safe has an unusually high capacity for remembering fingerprints. With the ability to remember up to 120 unique fingerprints, this safe is definitely top-notch.

This safe opens with just a swipe of your finger, which is faster than typing in a code.  It’s also nice that the safe allows so many fingerprints to be stored, so that you can record your own fingerprints at different angles to improve accuracy. Advertised with the biometrics technology is a self-learning algorithm which is said to improve the False Reject Rate (FRR) over time.

MVB1000 Alternatives

The MVB500 is a slightly smaller alternative you don’t need as much space. If you’re open to other brands aside from GunVault, you might consider a similar Sentry Safe model that is very well-rated but comes with a higher price tag.
