    I had one for a few years. Loaned (then sold) it to a friend who was opening a gunshop to help him expedite things & upgraded to a bigger safe for myself. Never any problems,but never had any break-ins. I did have it in a room that was cement slab floor on grade,there prone to a bit of dampness. I used a golden rod & never had any moisture problems externally or internally. It seem to be a good value.

    It's a Chinese safe with the Liberty logo attached. 12 gauge steel body and wrapped door.

    They're clearly lying in their advertising of the safe then...

    That's right, if it's made in China, why would they advertise it as an American made? Hmmmm....

    I dont see anything on the Liberty site to indicate American made so not sure. I do know that most people feel Cannon is American made but if you go to their website you will see they only list American made for two of their series and dont mention a word about where its made on the others. a1abdj delivers and services safes for many different companies so I would take his word above a Wal Mart add. From personal experience I started at the lower priced "safes" and kept buying bigger in steps. If you can swing about double what you are considering spending you can get a large improvement in security and fire protection by going to the Amsec BF series. Also keep in mind that it is the Liberty Centurion that is the safe broken into in the Racing to the Bottom video. I also believe that the Centurions door is a single layer of 12g steel and fireboard. 1/10th of an inch isnt much steel for a door. They can call it a 4inch composite door all day long but your need the steel for protection. Many of the lower priced safes have doors of 1/10th inch steel and hide the fact by calling them massive composite or 4inch composite. If I had know then what I know now I could have saved a lot of money in the long run. Unfortunately in safe ads it seems to be what they dont say is more important than what they do say. If you look closely at the Liberty website you will see that until you reach the Franklin model none of the doors are double steel. So you get a single thin layer of steel for the door in the two lower priced models.
