When it comes to purchasing a gun safe, many of us would like to shop around and look for what serves our needs best. However, there are some of us who are diehard fans of a particular brand, and would only narrow down our search for offerings from that brand itself.
With Winchester having established itself since 1886, they are one of the oldest in the gun safe industry, offering quality, integrity, and reliability in their products for more than a century and counting now. Every item in this Winchester safes review guide have been tested and are burglar-proof, which further increases the legendary aura around the name.
Winchester is also willing to throw in a replacement guarantee which will entail a free replacement safe, free locksmith service to unlock the safe, and free curbside delivery as a show of confidence in their products.
In the event where a Winchester safe is damaged by a burglar or is destroyed in a fire, the victims need not fret about forking out more money to purchase a new safe since a similar or comparable model will be sent to their doorsteps.
All of Winchester’s safes will feature a two-year warranty on the lock alongside a limited lifetime warranty on the safe itself. We have taken a look at the different kinds of gun safes offered by Winchester, and have rounded up the best possible gun safes from the company for the year 2017.
Winchester Safes Review 2019
“Plenty of room for rifles, handguns, ammunition, and other miscellaneous items”
Winchester’s Big Daddy obtained its name from its obviously wide stance and immense capacity upon opening the door.
In other words, this is the ideal safe for most folks who would like to have ample room for their growing number of firearms, in addition to other knick-knacks, collectibles, and precious jewelry or documents.
Normally, something as huge and secure as this would cost a bomb, but somehow Winchester has managed to offer plenty of good value for our hard-earned money with its extremely reasonable price tag, making this one of the more popular Winchester gun safes that are in the market. Just how much storage space does it have?
We are looking at a capacity of up to 48 long guns, with dimensions of 60 x 42 x 25-inches. Another thing that caught our attention was the 75 minutes of fire protection at 1400 degrees Fahrenheit, which is certainly better than the minimum recommendation of an hour by experts.
Five layers of fireboard are located in the door itself, while another three is installed in the body itself so that extreme temperatures from the outside will not harm the safe’s contents.
Palusol’s heat-expandable door seal also sees action in the Big Daddy, allowing it to swell up to 7 times its size so that all four sides of the safe door will be completely sealed in the event of a fire, offering protection from both heat and smoke damage.
With 12-gauge steel, a 4-way locking bolt system, recessed door, and reinforced doorjamb, we would say that the Big Daddy is fantastic mid-level security safe.
Apart from a lifetime warranty that covers materials and workmanship, burglary attack and fire damage, there is also an accompanying two-year warranty against lock defects.
- Fire-resistant for up to 75 minutes, extremely spacious interior at a reasonable price.
- Door not as thick as we would have liked it to be, but it is still decent enough.
