The following press release was issued by Browning

New for 2015 in the Browning ProSteel safe line-up are the Pistol Vault 500 and Pistol Vault 1000. These compact vaults provide real, safe-like security for individuals wanting a more secure location to store handguns.

Feature-packed Browning ProSteel Pistol Vaults are built from 10 gauge steel — twice the thickness of most pistol vaults offered on the market — and include safe-like security measures for superior protection from break in.

Security is provided by a recessed lid held tightly by a pair of tough ½” diameter locking bolts. An electronic four-button touch pad controls entry, is easily programmed with a custom entry code and uses eight AA batteries. A unique four-sided key opens the lid in the event the entry code is forgotten or the batteries fail. The pistol vaults also include external electrical contacts for use with a common 9V battery that powers the touch pad (9V back-up battery not included).

Bright LED lighting illuminates the interior. A pick and pluck foam insert is easily customized to fit firearms and other valuables.

The ProSteel Pistol Vault 1000 dimensions are 7 ½” high x 14 ½” wide x 11″ deep with a weight of 25 lbs. Suggested Retail is $219.00.
