The Gunvault MV500-STD Microvault Pistol Gun Safe is an extremely small sized, lightweight and portable gun safe. It offers the user extremely quick access to their pistol, while also providing sound and technologically advanced safety features.
Its security system is based on a high strength lock mechanism, which makes tampering and theft very difficult. Its computer carries over 12 million possible access codes, from which users can make their selection. It also provides audio feedback for correct keypad entries, but this feature can be disabled wherever complete silence is a priority. Access to the safe is blocked, if invalid keypad entries are made repeatedly, and it also comes with a tamper indicator.
The body of the Microvault is made of heavy-gauge steel, and its precise fittings make it very difficult to pry open. The soft foam on the inside keeps the gun secure and its No-Eyes keypad makes operation in the dark easy. Besides, its keypad is conveniently located and is highly user friendly. For further user convenience, the Gunvault MV500 can be mounted anywhere. There are four pre-drilled holes on the bottom of the vault. The weight of the product is 5 pounds, and it is battery operated for easy portability and enhanced convenience. Its dimensions are 11” x 8 1/2” x 2 ¼”.

Gunvault MV500-STD Review
According to most users, the Gunvault MV500-STD Microvault Pistol Gun Safe is essentially a light-use product, effective only for basic storage requirements in low pressure situations. It will keep the kids out and be a deterrent to uninvited curiosity. However, this product is hardly regarded as secure enough to withstand serious theft attempts, or efficient enough to function seamlessly in high pressure and emergency situations.
One problem that brings the product down a notch is the functioning of its keys. The keys have come across as mushy to some people, and if you press them hastily and carelessly, you may not always achieve a correct code entry. Naturally, with a little bit of practice and care, you will not face this trouble.
The one good thing if you buy Gunvault MV500-STD Microvault Pistol Gun Safe is that it is very easy to install the batteries and set up the code. It also opens and shuts smoothly. All in all, the product offers good value for money to the average user, but neither its security features nor its operational convenience can really withstand extreme requirements.
