    I'm in the market for a new RSC and while during my search I noticed (in most part) that "gun safe" manufactors use S&G combo locks while actual safe manufactors use LaGard combo locks?

    Is one better than the other... please enlighten me on the differences.


    Thanks

    Overall, both locks are very similar. They both share the same "universal footprint" so that locks from one manufacturer can be used to replace locks from another manufacturer without modifying the safe.

    As in all other products, there are various grades of locks, and gunsafes typically use the lower end models.

    There are also some products only available through certain companies. S&G offers biometric locks, and Lagard doesn't. Lagard offers their "redundant" lock which uses both a mechanical operation in addition to electronic operation, and S&G doesn't have anything simliar.

    The locks that you see on new safes aren't always there because they are the best lock for the job. In many cases they are there because a certain company's sales rep has arrived first, or offered a better deal.
