Nice little Safe

The Mini GunVault is exactly what they say it is. It does a fine job of providing easy access to its contents. It is a little tricky to insert the batteries and mount because there is very little room to get inside of it and you have to peel back the protective foam lining. Keep in mind that the inside of it is very small. You will probably only be able to fit one full-size pistol and maybe a few other small items. It is also nice that you can press multiple finger buttons at a time for an entry so you can have a more secure combination. I gave four stars for value because for what it is, it could be a few dollars cheaper - but still worth the money and I will probably buy another one.

Gun Vault Mini

This product by Gun Vault is exactly as described. Will provide very quick access but should keep weapons safe from children with the key pad. Just be sure to safely store the back up keys. Has many screw holes on the bottom of the safe to firmly mount it. Runs on 8 "AA" batteries, but those are supposed to last for one year. Only problem is you can only program in one combination, so if more than one adult needs access, you will have to agree on one combination that you both can remember instead of each of you having their own.

Good as Advertised but with a few small issues

The directions were somewhat vague. The major problem I had was the initial setup. Turns out the screws that hold the electronic keypad to the top of the safe were loose and prevented the door from closing. That and the tight fit to insert the batteries and screw the battery mounting device took some time and I don't have that large a hand. After all that, the pistol safe worked as advertised.

Very sturdy and convenient gun storage

I read many reviews of the GunVault Mini before finally buying. It seemed every set of reviews were mostly positive (rated 4s or 5s), but also had several negative entries (1s or 2s). Most of the negative reviews centered around the failure of the buttons to open the safe after several months, or difficulty in programming the combination. Since I've only had the safe for a couple weeks, it's too early to tell if I'll experience problems with the buttons, but so far, it's working perfectly as advertised. I found I did need to pay close attention to the directions while programming the combo, but once I grasped the logic, it was a snap. (The 4 buttons have no values themselves. Rather, you need to assign your own values while selecting your personal combination sequence.) I bought the deluxe model that included an AC adapter (the unit still requires 1 9V battery to work) and a dim but handy light that shines down from the roof of the inside of the safe for 5 seconds after opening, long enough to illuminate what you need to grab in a hurry. The foam padding on the inside of the safe isn't super cushioned, but is adequate to protect the finish of a firearm. The Mini is plenty big enough to hold my Glock 19 and 2 magazines with room to spare. This unit lists for $169 on GunVault's website and at many retailers. I almost bought it at Cabela's on sale for $115 until I saw it on Walmart's site for $86.75.


In the instructions it states that you can mount this safe in any direction. NOT TRUE. I mounted it upside down to the frame of my bed. It took about 3 days for the entire keypad to fall off. I tried to hot glue it back on and it took only 2 days this time. Its only held on with what looks like double sided tape.
