GunVault pistol safes are truly premium products that set the standard for the rest of the industry.  We know that security and reliability are prevailing priorities when you need our products, and that's why GunVault pistol safes have the features you want. 

  • Our Biometric scanner provides lightning-quick access, even in the dark. 
  • Improved high strength lock mechanism and precise fittings make it virtually impossible to pry open with hand tools. 
  • Battery powered for maximum security and easy portability. The MVB500 (MicroVault Bio) uses fingerprint recognition, to access the safe contents. 

A high-performance algorithm is used to achieve speedy identification of enrolled fingerprints; and at the same time has a very low False Reject rate (FRR) for a given False Accept Rate (FAR). This self-learning algorithm of the GunVault Bio adds new minutiae to the fingerprint templates each time a user touches the finger print scanner, which decreases the likelihood of FRR, updates slight changes that might occur over time to an enrolled fingerprint, as well as to help distinguish variations. The MVB500 can handle a maximum of 20 fingerprint templates and comes standard with a 4 foot security cable that allows you to tether it to a fixed object, making it perfect for home and travel.


For maximum efficiency, GunVault recommends using an all alkaline battery (Duracell or Energizer) with an expiration date of 5 years in the future for all products.

Review by Michael G:
My absolute favorite GunVault product. I have my Glock 17 with me almost everywhere I go and I when I go into a store I am not allowed to bring my weapon into I lock it in my MicroVault. I love the biometric feature, fast and always reads mine and my sons fingerprint easily, he's 19.

Review by Kevin Hart:
I have two 1911's in this safe and it fits easily. I travel with it for work and have never had an issue with it. I probably should use the security cable with it more but I don't, nice added feature.

Review by Ben Jakes:
Just big enough for a 1911 in a concealed carry holster and an extra mag. No room for anything else. Slides nicely under the front seat of the car and cable lock keeps it safe from a smash and grab robbery. Only 4 stars because a motivated thief with a screwdriver probably wouldn't take long to get in it. Good product for the money though. Works as advertised with no problems as of yet.
