Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe
Every firearms owner understands the importance of keeping their firearms secured and only accessible to themselves or other specific individuals. They also understand the need to be able to access the firearms quickly in an emergency situation without trying to locate keys or input a combination. Barska’s unique Biometric Rifle Safe features an advanced Biometric Module that allows authorized users to access the contents in seconds. The Barska 4 Position Biometric Rifle Safe is an advanced storage solution that utilizes the latest fingerprint scanning technology to provide the user with a quick and secure method of accessing their firearms, making it a great asset for home defense.
- Includes Mounting Hardware, 2 Back-Up Keys, and External Battery Pack
The Biometric Module located on the safe’s door can store up to 120 different fingerprints in a central database. When a finger is placed on the scanner, the module quickly compares the fingerprint to the database of registered fingerprints to determine if an authorized user is attempting to access the safe. If the fingerprint pattern matches an authorized print from the database, the safe will grant access and the door can be unlocked. If an unauthorized user is trying to access the safe with an unregistered fingerprint, the safe will deny access. The entire process of scanning, comparing, and granting/denying access takes only seconds, ensuring that registered users can access the safe’s contents at a moments notice.
The safe itself features an all-steel construction build with pre-drilled mounting holes and included mounting hardware for securing the safe to a solid surface. The pry-resistant front door features 3 solid-steel locking deadbolts that secure the door from the top, bottom, and side. On the inside of the safe, a padded 4-position barrel rack keeps long guns organized and protected. The bottom of the Barska Rifle Safe is also fitted with protective carpet. For additional storage, this biometric rifle safe features a storage shelf that provides ample room for handguns, ammo, and accessories. This shelf is removable to provide the room needed for longer hunting rifles.
Aside from the Biometric Fingerprint Scanner, the Barska Rifle Safe can be opened with traditional keys. A lock is located behind the Barska nameplate on the front door, which allows the user to open the safe with the included back-up keys. An external battery pack is also included in the event that the safe’s batteries run low. This external battery pack plugs into the bottom of the biometric module, and provides the power needed to access the safe using the fingerprint scanner.
The Quick Access Biometric Rifle Safe allows you to keep rifles, guns & ammo stored securely and quickly accessible with a scan of your fingerprint. Keep up to 4 rifles, guns and ammo stored securely and quickly accessible with the simple scan of your fingerprint. A removable section rifle safe barrel holder will keep your rifles lined up and ready for action. For added security the Biometric Rifle safe is manufactured with six mounting points at the back of the safe so that it can be mounted to a wall, the floor, or any flat surface. The three- point deadbolt locking system and solid steel construction guarantee peace of mind that no unauthorized users will access your valuables. The faceplate removes to reveal a backup key lock in case of battery failure.

I decided to customize mine (as I do with most everything). Last thing you want in an emergency is to be fumbling around in the dark, so I added some simple LED lighting to make it less of a black hole. There are various approaches to this. I decided I wanted it act like a refigerator- with the lights turning on whenever the door is open, and off when the door is closed. I picked up a basic 'normally closed' momentary contact switch at my local 'gadget hut', and mounted it so the door, when closed, would keep the switch open, and the lights off. You could also use a magnetic switch. I ran wires from the switch to a pair of 'stick-on' magnetic LED puck lights that use AA batteries. Something like this would work great: 27 LED Super Bright - Deluxe Glow Work/Utility Light - Magnetic w/Hook
I stuck one to the underside of the top of the safe, lighting the contents on the shelf, and a second to the underside of the shelf, lighting the rest of the safe. Works great! Safe contents are always lit when I open the door, and batteries last for a long, long time, as the lights draw no juice when the door is closed.
I also lined the safe with carpet, as it's just sheet metal inside. It does come with a flimsy piece of loose grey felt to line the floor. Silly. I took the felt piece, and instead of laying it on the safe floor, used spray adhesive on the back side and adhered it to the shelf, wrapping around the front edge, and up underneath. This prevents any sharp edges from dinging your contents. For the rest of the interior, I went to my local big box home improvement store and bought a couple feet of their thin grey carpet sold on big rolls by the foot for patios, etc. I think it cost me about 7 bucks. I cut carpet for the floor, walls, and backside of the door, and used industrial strength adhesive-backed velcro to attach the carpet. The velcro allows me to pull back the carpet should I need to change its batteries, or to access holes for mounting the safe to the wall/floor. This addition of a carpet lining truly transforms the safe in my opinion. It now does a much better job of protecting the contents.
Last suggestion for those that keep this nearby for emergencies, such as in a master bedroom: Secure some sort of tray on top of the safe (velcro, etc) and use this as a drop spot for your wallet, keys, flashlight, knife, and cell phone. If there's ever an emergency in the middle of the night- fire, tornado, earthquake, etc, you always have one place to go for all of your EDC essentials, as well as the contents of your safe.
I hope this summary serves somebody well. A couple hours of your time, and $25.00 in materials add up to a very cool security solution.
****UPDATE NOV 2013****
After living with this safe for a couple years, I thought I'd give you some more feedback. Still like the concept of the safe- fits in your master bedroom closet, and quick access for a couple items. I've had some issues with it I'd like to pass along. For whatever reason, it's started having trouble reading my fingerprints. It still reads my wife's fine. I've been doing a lot of construction/carpentry on the house and I guess my skin is dry, or my prints abraided, but after a hard day's work, I can't open the safe. It takes me about a week with no hard labor with my hands before it will recognize my prints again. I've tried all kinds of stuff, but it often won't open for me. So, Either I have really hard to read prints, or it doesn't like people who work with their hands. Either way, be warned that it's not great with quick access if your hands have undergone any change- dryness, or any stains on your fingers from oil, dirt, glue, etc... I kind of wish it had a 4 or 5 key pad with a code. Also, I really wish it were slightly bigger- deeper. Tough to fit items that have optics attached unless you run them diagonally.
Zero issues with this safe. It continues to work flawlessly and it is used at a MINIMUM of 2 times every day I have owned it. The fingerprint scanner is still fast and allows near immediate access to your firearms. I'm very glad I purchased this safe and still highly recommend it to anyone.
UPDATE AFTER 3 MONTHS OF USE:
I have opened and closed this safe several times a day, every day since writing this review and it has never had a single issue whatsoever. The lock disengages within about 1 second after pressing my finger to the biometric reader. I did have to change the original batteries which came with the unit but they were generic AA batteries that came free with the unit (I didn't expect them to last long). I will continue to update this review as time goes on but I am extremely happy with the purchase.
I have nothing but great things to say about this safe and please read this review if you are having second thoughts about buying it...
- Firstly, This is a small safe and it is designed to grant you FAST ACCESS to weapons in an emergency situation. This is NOT a safe for all of your expensive collectible firearms and personal documents. It will fit a long gun or two (depending on optics / accessories) and a pistol on the top shelf with room for some other items. I would highly recommend setting this up as an emergency safe to store items needed in a possible shooting situation. A few firearms, spare ammunition, tourniquets, quick clot, flashlight, spare cell phone etc. are what stay in mine.
-Second, this safe is primarily designed to be opened using the biometric fingerprint reader. If you register "one" finger "one" single time you are asking for trouble. Remember that high stress situations will impair fine motor skills. For that reason, individual fingers should be registered SEVERAL times and at different angles and positions. Think of how you register your fingerprint on an iPhone....you have to scan the same fingerprint many times and in different positions. This will ensure that the scanner correctly learns your fingerprint which means little or no chance of a lock-out situation in an emergency. The safe records 120 fingerprints so use them!
-Third, this safe is small and slim which means it can (and should) be mounted in a bedroom closet or area where your most precious belongings are, that's you and your family! Having a gun safe in your basement with an arsenal of weapons will not help you if an attacker gains entry before you can safely get to them. Again, this safe is not meant to protect all of your guns, just some which you want in an emergency.
-Lastly, this safe has a backup key lock which Barska has hidden under a stamped plate on the front of the safe. The plate is secured using two hex head screws. I would recommend removing the name plate during set up in case of a fingerprint failure or other unforeseen failure where time is critical. I also recommend turning off the beep feature when opening the safe for two reasons. One, it is extremely loud. Two, a loud beep could tell an attacker your position when your opening the safe.
In conclusion, if you use this safe for its intended purpose you will not be disappointed. I purchased this safe new and in person from Gander Mountain for $229 but wanted to leave feedback on Amazon so others may benefit from this review. The only things that could have made this safe better would be a factory installed light which turns on when the door is opened and also a complete soft lining of the interior as found in their "Large" and "Extra Large" models. Overall I would recommend this safe to ANYONE who wants to protect their home and keep their weapons out of the hands of their children or guests.
I lined the interior with gray speaker box cover and purchased an LED flexible light strip from Radio Shack which I mounted inside with a 9 volt battery holder and momentary switch which makes the lights illuminate when the door opens (see photos).
