Hornady Armlock Box gun safe: Unboxing & Review (VIDEO)

    Moving up one level in Hornady’s gun safe product line, I take a look at their “Armlock Box” gun safe.

    While it shares the same sturdy construction of the Hornady Tripoint safe which I reviewed a few days ago, what’s nice about the Armlock Box is that it has a built-in arm instead of the flimsier cable.

    Here’s a quick snapshot of the Armlock Box’s features:

    • A patent-pending ArmLock system features a 1⁄8″ laser cut, steel shackle that adjusts to accommodate objects up to 3½” in diameter.
    • Constructed of 16-gauge steel
    • Dimensions:
      • Exterior: 10.25″x8″x3″
      • Interior: 9.75″x7.5″x2.25″
    • Designed to exceed ASTM standards for child resistance and protection from unauthorized access
    • Both safes can travel with you and meet TSA requirements for handgun security in luggage
    • Industry first, patent pending TriPoint® locking system features 3 points of contact
    • Three, ½” wide steel locking lugs
    • Padded interior

    At an MSRP of $46.00, I think this is another great safe for the money. And a quick Amazon search reveals that it’s available for $29.99.
