What is the average cost of a gun safe?
The average price of a gun safe is based on a few factors. The safe is either a gun locker and if they are a gun locker that is not fire proof, then the prices will usually range anywhere from $149 up to $349 depending upon the size and the name brand of the locker.
Now if you are looking at a fire resistant gun safe, then you will find prices can vary widely.
The branding comes into play very much so when you are buying a gun safe.
Let’s start from the entry level gun safes and work our way up to the high end safes.
If you’re looking at the Chinese manufactured gun safe, well you will be looking at a range of $399 all the way up to $1300 bucks. These prices are adjusted for the sizes and different items such as lock manufacturers. The next level of pricing for fire resistant gun safes will only have a beginning price and I will not have an end as there is a saying that the sky is the limit.
But, when you begin getting into the higher levels of steel thickness and added features and warranties, then you will be estimated be looking at an entry price of $1800 and up, again depending upon size. Prices do fluctuate with sales and clearances, but it does leave you wondering what you’re paying for.
What am I Paying For
On any home security safe or gun safe, whether it is fire resistant or just a gun locker or cabinet, your paying for materials and reputation. Your paying for the thickness of the steel and the extra hardened steel plates built into the walls or the door of the safe. You are paying for the fact of whether or not your getting a high quality locking system. You are paying for the warranty you are promised either realistically or simply implied. In today’s economic environment you will be pay a price for the costs of fuel, because it does affect prices on everything.
What is the national average price for a safe?
The idea that there is a “national average price” for gun safes, is not so much the truth as it is an idea to be used as a bench mark. Prices for anything, especially for gun safes, is more subjective and relative to the different items that we have so far discussed here. But all of us here at GunSafeSpot.com have sat down and discussed this subject in order to come up with a price for a national average.
For a gun safe that is sized: 8 gun up to 14 gun– $350 up to $500
16 gun up to 28 gun– $501 up to $1300
29 gun up to 52 gun -$1301 up $3900
Is a More Expensive Safe Better?
The price of a safe makes really no difference if the safes are equal in quality. There is the fact that a safe from a particular manufacturer at the higher end of the price scale, will usually have better quality components in it and will almost always have more options in it.
