o.k. there are diffent systems from Armatix.
Quick-Lock is as you described it.
Trust Lock is the same system, only that is is meant for people that inherited firearms but are not alloewd to shoot them.
In this case the numerical or biometrical part is kept at a dealer and only he can unlock and remove the rod.
At the moment, we are talking about approx. 200 Euro for a single rod plus another 200 Euro for the biometrical or numerical device. Plus I don`t know how much for the diffent adapters for different firearms, like rifles, revolvers etc.
As mentioned previosly, this company had tried to get into the german market through the government. At the moment it is stopped, but we don`t know for how long.
Since they didn`t get through here in germany, they are trying to get into the US market.
We have had test made, where the rod was removed within 7 sekonds just by using an electrical sanding machine.
Unfortunately, the report was banned from the internet by a court order.
In another test, the rod was removed in just a few minutes by using a welding machine. This test also was taken offline by a court order.
In both cases the barrell was not damaged at all.
