Its seems most of the firearms safe reviews that I have found on the web are either written by novices, gun shop owners or written about American gun safes. Whatever the case I am here to tell you that they don’t know much or are not relevant. In this firearms safe review, Australian made gun safes as well as imported ones come under the microscope. I have 37 years in the safe industry and if you don’t want some punk to nick your prized collection read on. As it’s wise to do at least a little research.
There has never been so many “things” available for us to buy online. Today it’s so easy to buy directly from a seller in Hong Kong bypassing the traditional shopfront. Alas when you bypass the traditional bricks and mortar shop you are also bypassing a lot of knowledge. However if you buy a gun rifle safe online for around $300, what do you actually get for your $300?
The straight answer is not much, I assure you that the cheapie gun safes will either break down and there are very few spare parts for the cheapies or it will be prized open by a crim armed with a pinch bar. Either way spending $300 which MUST be replaced in 4 years is false economy. Gun owners see little trouble spending $1500 on a scope but some baulk at spending $1000 on quality rifle safe. Just as muzzle velocity is governed by the load, protection a gun safe offers is governed by steel thickness and construction etc.
Peeled open like a sardine can !
This safe WILL fail and there is no easy fix ! Note the cheapie Bunning style
Many cheap safes can be “bumped” open leaving little evidence that the safe safe has even been tampered with. Many of the locks on the cheapies are the same locks found on smaller “safety boxes” and have very “simple solenoid” mechanisms.
CMI make quality gun safes and use LaGard digital locks, these gun safes are constructed using Aussie tradesmen with tried and proven boltwork. These are dearer that many imported gun safes but you can be sure they will last.
An alternative is to buy a Lokaway gunsafe as these have a unique patented “swing & slide” locking door backed up by a “reasonable quality” digital lock. These safes are made in China so are well priced compared to Australian Made gun safes. These safes are built to a very high standard and distributed by Beretta Australia.
We have a large range of Lokaway gun safes in stock. We also sell some others we feel confident are worthy to put our name on. Bypassing the quick buck is the reason we have lasted 28 years in business. In 10 years time those selling junk will be long forgotten and we will still be selling the the quality safes. All products we sell can be shipped anywhere in Australia, Call us today on 1300 556500 !
