Since my cheap Chinese made Sentry handgun safe's electronics failed, I figured I would spend a little more and get a quality product this time around. I did some quick research and found the Fort Knox handgun safe was a good fit for me and that proved to be the case. The safe really is a great product with a 7ga wrap around steel door, a 10ga body and a mechanical Simplex lock. This handgun safe is so much more significant than my previous Sentry safe that I'm embarrassed I ever wasted money on the Sentry. Seeing the bold labels on the safe, it's great that Fort Knox is proud they made their safe in the USA which makes me equally proud to buy it from them.
They have a really large contact patch on the back, and have been holding my heaviest pistols, without coming off the safe door
Great little light for Electronic safe. Only complaint, as I read in reviews before purchasing is the magnet does NOT hold it in place well. I had to do what others did, put a piece of double sided velcro tape to get it stay in place on the safe ( still able to remove when needed)
I recommend putting a stronger magnet onto back of light.
Worked beautifully and quite simple to install!
I like this safe very much. I needed a safe to fit into a confined space and this safe fit very well.
Some suggested improvements:
-I had issues using the mounting holes near the front of the safe. The door caused some interference. I suggest making some holes at least 2 inches from the front.
-I placed some rubber tubing over the metal hooks that the guns slip onto. i felt that the metal might scratch the inside of the gun's barrel.
Did not like the word SAFE on the box so the shippers know and anybody else that See's this coming up my drive also knows. Also under plastic wrap is the combination in a small envelope not closed vary well maybe there is a better way to get the combination to the new owner without the security of plastic wrap and paper.1300dollar safe combination comes outside of safe with address and words safe but I'm sure this is just my paranoia speaking. Thieves are all stupid. Probably don't own pens or make plans. Thanks
Arrived well packaged and seems like a high-quality gun safe

Acorn Velcro Pistol Holsters for Gun Safes
Thank you. Great service. I will be doing more business with you.
Beautifully built and exactly what he desired. Home is in a much better place with this product providing invaluable peace of mind. Would recommend to anyone
I did extensive research before deciding on this particular safe. I am beyond exciting about the whole process and the safe itself. The people at Dean Safe were very knowledgable and pointed me in the right direction on which safe I should get so I would highly recommend asking for their opinion. The safe showed up quickly and has exceeded my expectations. You really get what you pay for and I would recommend this safe to anyone.
Ordered some Velcro holsters and very happy with them and the service. Everything went smoothly and my order arrived quickly. The holsters appear to have enough Velcro to make secondary attachment unnecessary, so also satisfied with that. I have used nylon zip ties to attach holsters before, but these appear to hold without that. I'll have to watch and see as I open and close the door a few times, but looks to be a winner.
Easy to use and works well. Might be a little better if the LED was white then it would be a little brighter than the red is.
Deans Safes, like always, has fantastic service.
Solid no nonsense simplex mechanical pistol box. No worries about digital electronic failures or lockout during an emergency. Fits full size 1911 and k frame revolver with 2 extra mags and 2 sped loaders at the same time with plenty of room.
If you have a stack on security cabinet like I do, you will have to make a modification and drill into your cabinet in order to hang it. Overall not too bad.
