Question for the community regarding the semi-common Fortress/Heritage 24 gun security cabinet (“safe”) and replacement of the electronic lock.
I have been looking into replacing it with the S&G 6730-100 as I have seen that this is a common replacement for electronic locks, however there appears to be something I’m missing… the current mechanism appears to not have a spindle hole on the safe. Photos attached at the below Imgur link for reference.
Should I be looking for another model of lock? Should I just drill out a spindle hole from the inside after mounting the mechanism? Or is the backup “lock” hole sufficient for the spindle and I should just plan to D&T new lock ring screw locations in the front of the door?
