While it took some struggle to assemble, the final product does not appear too secure, in this writer's opinion. The top of the cabinet can easily be pried off by hand. We are seriously considering welding it if the metal will hold up to the procedure. It looks nice but if someone really wanted to get into it and steal or use the guns stored there it would not take much effort. If all you want it to do is keep small children away this gun cabinet is fine; but theft prevention is not among its qualities.
Far more than an ordinary cabinet but a very tight fit for my three long guns. Not quite deep enough for a scoped or carry handle AR unless you turn them all sideways in which case this maxes out as a three gun safe which will do for now. In retrospect I would have been happier with the next size up. If its only a bolt gun or a shotgun without pistol grip or scopes it might allow 4-5 rifles but it will be a tight fit. ALL IN ALL HOWEVER - I am quite pleased that that these long guns are now safely out of their travel cases and are secure under lock and key, bolted down to the floor and wall.
For the price, this really is a nice gun cabinet. The box it came in was beat up, but the packaging was sufficient to prevent major damage. I have been searching for a locking gun cabinet to fit in the closet of my RV which means the gun cabinet/safe can not be taller than 51 inches. There are many sites listing this gun cabinet at 51 inches high, and I even found a review of this cabinet stating it is 51" high not 55". The box it came in says 51" high, but had a sticker that says 55". This being the second gun safe I have ordered that wound up being too tall, I am very disappointed with the manufacturers inability to get the height listed correctly, and now I have two gun safe/cabinets that won't fit in my RV.
