Epic Fail

Buffalo River Black Diamond Cabinet

Recommended Posts

So i had originally ordered a Lokaway LOK4DK from my local RFD in June for July delivery from GMK

July went, August went & no sign of it on the ship from china. Turns out GMK cant get any from the factory until the end of the year so another cabinet is in order 

 

Does anyone have any experience with the Black diamond range from Buffalo river ? specifically the 18 gun

Struggling to find any photos / videos or info other than stock images and the odd image of a 24 gun cab from the US

I have the 10 gun version which I bought around 4 years ago. They no longer make spares for the lock assembly etc for mine - they changed the spec slightly not long after I bought mine, so I’ve had to resort to using the key as the solenoid doesn’t release using the keypad. Good cabinet, but I feel I’ve been let down by their aftercare

That sucks... proprietary locks 

This is the main reason I was looking at lokaway as they use industry standard locks

I thought the Black Diamond range was electric solenoid only without emergency mechanical key?.

do you have any decent photos of this? the ones online are all stock images so really hard to judge the quality

Maybe I’m wrong and it isn’t the black diamond version then - I’ll get a couple of pictures posted in a bit

Thanks for these! That is the black diamond range 

 

Some of the descriptions say it only has a shelf at the top but some say it has a small lockable compartment

Other than the lock breaking, how does the rest of the quality seem ?

Mine has the lockable ammo compartment and a small shelf up top. Other than the lock issues I’m happy with the cabinet - it seems well enough made and it feels quality it terms of the bolt retraction and hinges etc.
