Although a lot of gun cabinets are available with a separate internal ammunition compartment, they are usually too small to hold sufficient quantities. Therefore, it becomes necessary to get some extra space to securely hold ammunition. This also allows you to store it well away from your guns, for added peace of mind, plus some police forces insist on this anyway.
Westlander carry a large range of cabinets for firearms and ammunition, with capacities of up to 15 guns. The Pioneer range are all manufactured using 2mm steel with fully welded seams and double thickness reinforcement around the fixing points. The IH-800 ammunition safe on test weighs 25kg and is a very well built and solid unit.
Ideal for storing large volumes of ammunition, this cabinet comes complete with two heavyduty shelves, which can be easily set at any height using the adjustable support rail system. The shelves and supports are strong and can be fully loaded with rifle ammunition or shotgun cartridges without them bending or failing.
The very substantial door features five large locking bars, three at the side and one at the top as well as the bottom. They are all secured with a seven-lever, double-bitted, key-operated lock. The door is an excellent fit in the frame and locks securely with no movement or play, plus shows no gaps to get a pry bar into. A clever feature is that you cannot remove the key when the mechanism is unlocked, so no danger of wandering off with the key and leaving the cabinet open.
With the bolt holes being reinforced with two thicknesses of steel you get a very secure fixing. The holes are located on the back as well as the bottom of the cabinet, and once correctly secured in place you can tell the safe is going no-where.
Although this is not the cheapest ammunition safe you can get, it is certainly one of the best. Gun and ammunition security is not something to cut corners on and you must ensure that you get something that satisfies all of the guidelines on firearms security. This safe exceeds those guidelines and provides great security for ammunition or even black powder pistols. The full range of Pioneer safes can be viewed on the Westlander website and can be ordered through one of their stockists.
