It's been WAY overdue and now that I have one, I can't believe I waited so long to buy one. Not only for the peace of mind I now have but these things are VERY cool! It's called Republic by Hollon safes out of Texas and it's the RG-39 model. Of course it's made in China (as most safes this price are) and it's very similar to the Diamondback safes with a few extra tweaks. I had the LaGard mechanical lock installed as opposed to the electronic lock. It's a little slower and not as convenient but I should never have any issues with it. The only real criticism I have is it only has two holes for anchor bolts and they are placed more toward the center of the safe. For one this size, I wish it had anchor holes in all four corners. There is also no hole drilled for an electronic dehumidifier. No big deal as I don't have an outlet where I placed it and I put a silica gel dehumidifier similar to the Eva-Dry E-333 model that should work well. Here's a link that gives a better description and features:
I picked it up through Valuesafes for $1299 delivered and the service was top notch. I actually had it within 5 days from the date of order and this included a weekend. I lucked out as I bought it on the last day of their sale and when the new sale started the next day, it went up $300 but now they offer a free keypad upgrade. Here's a link if anyone is interested.
I ended up building another shelf for it that is cut out for my shotguns and a smaller cutout for my centerfire rifles. I have a couple of shotguns that are very long which made the top shelf have minimal room. It's good enough for magazines and paperwork but not really good at utilizing for handguns. I also installed some LED puck lights that really work great. These run off batteries and the light has two levels of brightness and up to 30 degree of directional output that lock in place and swivels 360 degrees. They can either be attached with velcro (supplied) or with a screw which I opted to use. I figured with the screw there would be less chance of the fabric sagging and it would be much easier to replace batteries when needed. As everyone else knows, it doesn't take long to fill it up especially with guns that have scopes with large objective lenses. It looks like I don't have much room for more guns so I guess I'll have to either get another safe or quit buying guns. Looks like I need to invest in another safe :rock:! I'm also going to have to get a pistol rack or make one to better store the handguns.
Overall, I'm very pleased with it and it seems well made and a lot of safe for the money. I definitely don't have buyer's remorse. Here's some pics of my new toy.
