5. Cannon Commander Series 54
The premier model from Cannon, the Commander Series 54 has a whole host of features which make it one of the best safes in the business. An incredible five and three quarter inch, double-steel, composite-lined door will protect your valuables from fire and theft. The safe has been verified by Intertek-ETL to be fireproof for as long as ninety minutes in temperatures of up to twelve hundred degrees Fahrenheit. The best feature of this safe (and all high-end Cannon safes) is the warranty though, which covers complementary repair and replacement in almost all situations, including fire, theft and even flood.
4. Liberty National Security Magnum 50
Liberty is the most well-known safe manufacturer in the business and in the past has been guilty of using their notoriety to produce low-quality safes. This, however, is not the case with the National Security Magnum 50 which is an impeccable safe. Using seven-gauge, six-inch thick composite-lined steel for its door and coming with two and a half hours of fire protection at temperatures of up to twelve hundred degrees Fahrenheit, demonstrates how Liberty have strived to produce one of the best gun safes in the business.
3. Winchester Legacy Premier 53
The Winchester Legacy Premier 53 lives up to the premier in its name by being one of the safest and most fireproof gun safes money can buy. Although it only uses ten-gauge steel in its construction, which is not as dense as some other high-end models, it is fireproof for two and a half hours at temperatures of up to an incredible fourteen hundred degrees Fahrenheit. It is further secured with twenty; two-inch, locking-bolts which ensure that once closed it will not be easily opened by any unauthorized person.
2. AMSEC RF6528
From AMSEC, the most highly-regarded safe manufacturer in the industry, comes the astounding AMSEC RF6528. Critically lauded as the ‘most secure gun safe in the business’, this is the only gun safe currently in production, from any company, that has been granted a U.L. TL-30 burglary rating, by Underwriters Laboratories, the most highly-respected testing laboratory in the business. This means that it is the only safe on the market that is guaranteed to resist an experienced burglar for at least thirty minutes. Not only is it incredibly secure, but it can also withstand fire for as long as two hours, in heats of up to eighteen hundred degrees Fahrenheit. This is one of, if not the, greatest gun-safe around.
1. Brown Estate 6018
Brown are not as well-known a company as any other safe manufacturer mentioned in this article, however for a number of years they have been producing technically-flawless consumer safes. Brown specializes in custom safe building but their production-model safes are of an equally exquisite quality as they can be upgraded to have incredible levels of protection. The Brown Estate 6018 can be equipped with military-grade ballistic armor which although much thinner than standard solid-steel, which is used in the construction of the majority of safes, is much stronger and near impenetrable. A fully-upgraded Brown Estate 6018, although incredibly expensive, is the best safe in the business.
The safes mentioned in this article are very expensive. A gun safe is an investment and you should buy a high-quality safe, however adjust the quality of the safe to your needs. It is no use purchasing a safe for thousands of dollars if it is only ever going to hold a few hundred dollars worth of guns. Always research any safe thoroughly before you make a purchase.
