Best Gun Safes On a Budget

And these safes are made right here in the USA!

If you’re shopping for a quality gun safe, but don’t have thousands of dollars to spend, you’re not alone. However, if you’re thinking you’re going to have to downgrade to buying a cheaply made, big box store safe, think again! Winchester believes in quality, made in the USA gun safes, available to the average Joe at reasonable prices, and so do we! That’s why we love promoting Winchester’s three new, made in America, gun safes on a budget; Bandit, Deputy, and Pony. If you’re looking for the best gun safe on a budget, it’s hard to beat any of these safes!

Here’s the low down on these budget friendly gun safes. First off, they range in size and in level of burglary and fire protection. The smallest of these safes is the Bandit 9 and it is also the lowest cost option on the budget spectrum. Moving up in size and quality from the Bandit, we have the Deputy series (Deputy 10 and Deputy 14), followed by the Pony 19. All of these safes carry the California required DOJ burglary rating, but the Pony series has the added security of the UL RSC burglary rating. Fire ratings also range from minimal fire protection with the Bandit, up to 30 minutes independently fire rated with the Pony. For more information on burglary and fire ratings, visit our burglary and fire rating guide.

Now let’s take a look at the numbers. Just how affordable are these American made gun safes? Well, the Bandit, which is compact and the perfect size for any closet, holds up to 10 guns, and is just $399! If you have more guns and are interested in a higher fire rating, you may want to go with the Deputy 10 or Deputy 14 for just $499 or $599 respectively. If you have an even larger firearm collection and want more assurance that no burglar will be able to break into your safe, then the Pony 19 will be your safest bet, with the added RSC burglary rating and a gun storage capacity of up to 24 guns; the Pony 19 is just $699.

All of these gun safes come standard with the S&G Group 2 Mechanical lock, but can be upgraded to the Type 1 Electronic lock for $100.

Winchester has gone the above and beyond with these new U.S. made gun safes. While most gun safe manufacturers offer a one year parts and labor, they include a five year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship with locks warranted for two years. They also offer an optional extended warranty on locks and a lifetime free replacement guarantee: should your safe ever be damaged in a fire or burglary attack, they will replace your safe for free!
