    This is my second V-Line Safe. My first was the Brute. Same great construction as the Brute except smaller for installation in a truck console. Simplex lock is idiot proof. Fits one gun as big as a 1911 or Ruger GP100 with a 4.25 ” barrel. My only suggestion is that security cable be included with the safe. Looking forward to buy a third V-line safe.

    I like that this product is made in the USA nice heavy duty build and I like the battery-“less mechanical lock system. I would recommend this however a lot of the lock body protrudes down into the bulk of the depth of the safe and it’s raw metal therefore able to scratch your belongings. It would be much better if they put some sort of rubberized coating or cover on the lock body . This detail would make this product go from an 8 to a 10 and I would be willing to pay more for this level of finish.

    A few months ago, I had a scary experience where I attempted to retrieve my handgun from my battery-operated safe and found that it would not open after I inputted the code. Fortunately, I was just going to get it for a trip to the range. I resorted to retrieving the key and opening it via the backup option. Come to find out, the battery had leaked and rendered the battery method inoperable. I realized immediately that all of the battery operated safes that I have invested in over the years can so easily become inoperable without notice. Now I am switching all of them over to the mechanical locks. They are just as fast and I have much more piece of mind that they won’t fail on me if I need to retrieve my gun in a hurry. This V-Line product is great. small and compact, easily transportable and easy to use. Thank you for a great product.

    I was looking to make my S&W 642 tamper-proof from the grandchildren, and was leaning towards a biometric safe until I read negative reviews about battery life. So, I decided on a mechanical lock design (no batteries) and hence the V-Line. It’s solid, compact (fits easily in the drawer of my nightstand) and is made in the USA. Secure, yet quickly available should the need arise. Highly recomended.
