The GunValut MV1000 is rather old, but it’s still safe to use and it still does it’s job perfectly. The keyless pad fails to open sometimes so you need to be careful about that ones if you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to access your gun fast.
It’s pretty safe to carry it with you in your backpack or store it in the car.
It’s pretty easy to break into it, so you need to keep that in mind.

  • The benefits of using this gun safe cannot be over emphasized. The safety that this unit brings ensures that your family is not harmed even when there is a gun in the house. The 18 gauge steel is one of the toughest on the market currently, but this ensures that the safe is not easily broken into.
  • The robust security cable that allows you to link the unit to an unmovable object is also very handy. This is because it allows you to connect the safe to an unmovable object. A lot of times when a burglar notices he can’t break into a safe, he will try to carry the safe altogether. However, with this security cable, you can be sure that the gun safe isn’t going anywhere.
  • The interior foam lining of this gun safe is excellent. It helps to protect your weapon against scratches that may occur when the unit is placed in the safe. It is also very useful if you keep other items inside your safe.
  • We also like the notebook type style of this gun safe. It also comes with pouches where you can keep your documents and other valuables. This was quite thoughtful from the manufactures because most gun safes do not have side compartments.



  • The price of this gun safe may be a deterrent. It isn’t exactly the cheapest on the market. However, if you consider the features that it has, it can’t be. It is constructed of 18 gauge steel, so you know you are buying quality.
  • This gun safe is not exactly the quietest when you are opening and closing. The sound of the clasp can reverberate through the room if everywhere is completely silent. This shouldn’t deter you from buying this fantastic product, though.


In all, the MV1000 is a very innovative unit from Gun Vault. If you are not exactly enthusiastic about owning a biometric gun safe, then this is a good option for you. It is one of the best gun safes on the market that makes use of a digital locking system. The “No Eyes” keypad is a patented technology and allows the user to input the access code without even having to look at the unit.

This is also a gun safe that takes care of your weapon and other valuables, as shown by its interior foam lining. It also has several compartments that you can store your documents and jewelry. It is tough and resilient, and even the strongest power tools would find it hard to break into this safe. In all, this is gun safe that you should be considering buying.
