California DOJ Approved
This handgun safe is U.S. made and features a mechanical bush-button lock, the KABA Simplex lock, also made in the U.S. The pistol box has no electronics, needs no batteries, and therefore has no keyed override lock. In terms of construction, this device is heavier built than most other handgun safes. However, the Original Pistol Box has limited appropriate uses as a result of the mechanical lock. This style of lock cannot prevent one from entering combinations repeatedly in an effort to gain unauthorized access. Probably this pistol box is best suited for situations where one can limit access to it and prevent others from systematically trying combinations.
