The Armatix is a mechanical device that fits into the barrel of a firearm and can be used to lock the firearms when being transported or stored.

Once the lock has been programmed, only the authorised user can unlock the gun for use. The Quicklock system uses a fingerprint or PIN number to deactivate the locking mechanism.
