I've been reading forever trying to get a new safe for myself (Concrete foundation in new home that is stressed so I'm afraid to screw anything into the concrete) and for my dad (older manufactured home, just going to bolt it down on concrete garage floor).

I wanted to buy my dad a new AMSEC since he only needs a small gun RSC, but I started looking at used safes...

I read some threads where a1abdj and cb900 chimed in on some used safes as well...

So here's some of the contenders I was looking at, especially the double door Wright Data Bank safe. I was thinking of transporting the safe to a smaller safe maker who can spruce up the inside to hold my weapons and also the outside if possible including new paint and maybe a lock change....

Otherwise I might just stick to two new AMSEC's or a used one if I can find it.

Heres the links:

I can't say I'm impressed by the Visalia. The ISM in your second link is pretty nice if you have the $6,500 to spend. He doesn't mention the rating, and I didn't look to see what model it was, but ISM is a high end manufacturer. The data safe is also fairly priced, and would make a decent gun safe with excellent fire protection.

Do you know if its pretty costly to send a safe like that to someone like sturdy to have it painted and have the interior redone into a nice gun safe?

I'm thinking its more cost effective to buy and have them ship it to a safe maker right away to have the work done if its not too costly.

Or just stick a rotary rack in there and call it a day...

I don't know of any manufacuturer that will do custom work on used safes. We do it, although it is expensive to ship and the type of work we do is on the high end side.

For a basic interior job and paint, there's not much of a reason you couldn't do it yourself (or have somebody local do it), unless you're wanting something really fancy.

For example, all of our custom paint work is done by body shops that specialize in in high end/custom automotive work. It's not uncommon for us to spend anywhere from $1,000 to $4,500 (our wholesale cost) to paint a safe or vault door.

We also sell commercial safes (both new and used) that have been converted into safes that can store firearms.
