Four different companies have recalled certain gun safes after some – about 120,520 total products – were determined to have faulty biometric locks, allowing the safes to be opened by unauthorized users.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recalls on Thursday affecting safes sold by Bulldog Cases, Machir, MouTec and Awesafe.

Bulldog Cases said its Magnum Biometric Pistol Vault (BD4030B), Magnum Biometric Pistol Vault with Shelf (BD4040B) and Magnum Biometric Top Load Pistol Vault (BD4055B) are part of the recall after four reports of safes being opened by an unauthorized user.

The safes sold for $194 to $216 at Bass Pro Shops, Walmart and firearm stores across America, and on Amazon from July 2016 to January 2024.

Machir said the recall affects 24,820 Biometric Personal Safes that fall into 12 different ranges of serial numbers, which can be found in the lower right corner of the safe’s front door. The safes impacted are about 10 inches by 14 inches by 10 inches. The recall was prompted by 15 reports of the safes being opened by unauthorized users after the biometric lock failed. No injuries were reported.

The safes were sold for around $98 at Walmart stores nationwide and online at Walmart and Machir.com from July 2019 through September 2021. Customers have been advised to only use the key when storing firearms and to contact Machir for a free replacement.

Awesafe is recalling about 60,000 gun safes that fit two pistols and have a completely black exterior with the brand name “Awesafe” printed on the front.

All impacted safes were manufactured in China, according to the CPSC.
