Zore touts themselves as the the world’s fastest locked-to-loaded gun lock maker and it is pretty difficult to argue against that with their ZORE-X Gun Lock.

[SHOT 2018] Hands on with Zore-X Gun Locks

Manufacturing a gun lock that is both very safe around those who shouldn’t be around your firearm, but yet have the ability to be instantly unlocked in times when you actually need your firearm during a self-defense situation is a very tricky design tightrope to cross. Zore, an Israeli based but producing in California company, thinks it has the answer. Essentially the product idea is to have a bullet-shaped chamber insert that expands when attempting to rack the slide to the rear (the extractor catches on to the chamber insert as it would with a live or dummy round), thus locking it into the chamber even further. This insert is attached to a block on the outside of a handgun, that has a rotating RAPIDial. Twisting this RAPIDial is very akin to twisting a Master Lock from the High School days of old, turn to a number one way, then back to the second number, then for a third time, in the opposite direction. However, this is only a 3 digit combination of 9 numbers a slot. Zore can be programmed with 20 different digits of 9 available numbers apiece (although this would be a poor decision to have all 20 in a self-defense situation).

ZORE Releases X Core Series Handgun Lock

An Israeli company by the name of ZØRE is releasing their innovative quick locking system that they originally started through a crowdfunding campaign in 2016, which we covered in April of that same year. Today the company is going public in the United States offering the lock for individual purchase on their website. One of the important points in this release is the fact that the company received a California Firearm Safety Device Certification or an FSD. In California, an FSD could be as simple as an accompanying cable lock that comes with a new firearm. But having their product approved by the California DOJ as a safety device will be especially useful with California shooters, by far the largest single state population of shooters in the United States.

Harnessing Technology: Zore gun locks

A new start up company, by the name of ZORE has come up with a novel approach to gun locks. Their lock consists of a sort of expanding dimensional correct simulated bullet. Once “chambered” and the lock button is pressed, the bullet expands out into the chamber via a sort of mechanical contraption. At the same time, the bolt face/extractor lock on to the base of the round from the rear, thus causing the slide to lock up to the simulated round, and thus causing the firearm to be essentially locked. How do you unlock it? Dial the number wheel as if you were dialing a MasterLock high school combination locker, no matter what the position of the wheel, it will register the clicks you input. The lock button is popped up, while at the same time the chambered “Bullet” will release pressure from the inside, rack the slide, the lock falls out, and the a round is chambered if you already have a magazine inserted. The ZORE lock is black, with the lock button colored yellow, and the dial has indentations on it to tell you where to spin it for the correct combination. In addition that dial doesn’t have to start from one particular spot, so theoretically you can dial it while in the dark and unlock it. The entire system is also digitalized, with an app that tells the owner if the lock is being tampered with, via a bluetooth connection. The battery itself will last for more than a year on its own, and within 3 months of it running out of power, the app will send you a notification via blue tooth. For now it appears that they only have a 9x19mm version that has an expected release date in December 2016. But their other calibers are .40 S&W, .45 ACP, and 5.56x45mm, all due in 2017.
