Initially I was sent a safe that didn't have a S&G lock as marketed and Hollon and Armadillo made it right. The locksmith who changed the lock said the Securams are good too, but I wanted a S&G. I was glad Armadillo updated their website to show the possibility Hollon may ship you a Securam if they say a S&G isn't available. For the price I'm very satisfied with the quality.
Love this one just as much as the fist. Craftsmanship is superb! Will be buying more from this fantastic company!
Great way to keep your shotgun out of unauthorized hands but still available for rapid deployment. With a little practice, the vault can be opened very quickly without any key or RFID tag. Even in total darkness, the buttons are easy to feel, and the gun comes out easily. The build quality seems very good. The number of combinations is better than the other mechanical lock safes I've seen.
Although the lock is sturdy and secure, it is still valuable to conceal your weapon to avoid attracting the attention of thieves or curious kids. The ShotLock is small and can easily be mounted behind a curtain or door.
LockPickingLawyer on YouTube showed how the vault can be opened by inserting a steel wire through the small openings in the corners, and using it to move an internal latch. Kids are smart and also have access to YouTube, so I filled the openings with epoxy to mitigate the problem. I hope the manufacturer will address this soon, but be aware that alternative safes may have similar or worse vulnerabilities. Be sure to do some research on whatever you are considering.
One downside of the ShotLock is the tight fit around the shotgun's receiver. This prevents mounting a side saddle or shotgun card on the receiver for holding extra ammo. Also, I think it would be difficult or impossible to mount a red dot or ghost ring sight.
This produce is amazing. The quality and finish was flawless. This was purchased as a gift, but after seeing it in person I will be ordering one for myself.
Wonderful piece of craftsmanship….my husband and son were very pleased with their American Flag 2 compartment gun concealment cases…beautiful items🤭
The RS800 is definitely the size you’ll want. For me, I wish they offered a slightly bigger one, but their peg system makes up for it. Making use of all the available space within.
Armadillo Safes makes the purchase smooth and painless, considering Vaultek is not cheap. Lol.
Well constructed. Easy access. Safe seems to be very secure when mounted and locked. Compact. Well worth the money. I will buy another one from Armadillo Safe when I need it.
I had an issue and emailed my concern, customer service was amazing and handled my concern immediately. Thank you.
Great safe fire firearms and any valuable you want to store safely. Quality safe. Very happy with my purchase. Customer service is outstanding. Shipping was top notch.
I bought this more for securing from my child than to protect it from theft, so I didn't mount it. But I do feel a lot better about having it secure my firearm. The fingerprint works pretty reliably, and having to do it twice on rare occasion is still quicker than using the number pad or getting the key. Very solid build, bluetooth and the app work well, I enjoy being able to see a history of its access and attempted access. Incredibly satisfied with it.
