Pros: Strong and versatile. Best value for the price. Made in America. Fire-resistant.
Cons: The door can not be removed to assist in moving the heavy safe. Not as strong as high end safes.

The Stack-On FS-24-MG-C is priced well below $1000. Security wise, the Stack-On FS-24-MG-C is approved by the California department of justice. The safe meets their standards for firearm safety and the requirements of California Penal Code section 12088 and the regulations issued thereunder.

The Stack-On FS-24-MG-C is manufactured in the U.S. and has a limited lifetime guarantee and limited five year warranty.

The safe is tested by ETL, an independent testing lab and is fire rated for 30 minutes at 1400 degrees. It is not recommended to store electronic storage devices within the gun safe.

The gun safe is  made of heavy duty steel plate with three 1” live action locking bolts as well as 2 steel dead bolts on the inside of the door giving you 5 locking points. We would like to see a removable door on this model to help with moving the 436 lbs safe. The little bit of play the door has when locked is due to the fire lining that needs to expand when heated at a high temperature.

  • The gun safe has 4 adjustable shelves included. The interior is carpeted and is fully convertible which enables different layouts that gives you flexibility for a variety of storage needs.
  • The safe holds 24 firearms up to 54″ tall, or 12 firearms and storage, or all storage.
  • Exterior Dimensions: 29-1/4″ Wide (74.3cm), 20″ Deep (51.6cm), 55″ High (140cm)
  • Interior Dimensions: 26.89″ Wide, 14.47″ Deep, 52.72″ High

The gun safe has a 3-number combination dial lock with a drill resistant, hardened steel plate behind the lock for greater security. We prefer the combination dial lock version of this gun safe as opposed to the version with the electronic lock. The mechanical dial lock is more reliable than the electronic lock. The electronic lock has batteries that will go flat. You will then be required to have your override key at hand to access your safe. Time is of importance in an emergency and fiddling to find a key could be a life threatening situation.

Bolting the gun safe down will prevent thieves from carrying it off. Fastening hardware is included with purchase. When bolting the safe down, you should take care to follow the instructions to ensure that you don’t void the fire rating. This gun safe offers adequate security against common burglars, however it won’t stand up long against professional thieves armed with the right equipment.

The Stack-On FS-24-MG-C compares to similar gun safes with a price tag of 3 times as much of the Stack-On’s. Looking at all the gun safes available below $1000 the Stack-On FS-24-MG-C gun safe provides the best value for money in terms of security and features and therefor qualifies it as the best gun safe under 1000 dollars.
