Browning ProSilver SR59 Safe

Browning Gun Safe

Browning announced a new gun safe that it is selling called the Silver SR59. This safe is in the company’s ProSteel line and is a tall, extra wide model. The safe is 72″ tall, 56″ wide and 25″ deep. The company states it has a total long gun capacity of 59 firearms, though that depends on the gun sizes. For example, 59 Ruger 10/22 rifles are doable, but I wouldn’t expect to you would be able to squeeze very many Barrett Model 82 rifles in there.

The company has an organization system called the DPX Storage System and Axis adjustable shelves. These help to manage all of the guns and other gear you want to store. If you are stacking pistols in the safe, it can definitely hold more than 59 total guns.

These safes are made in the United States and use 11 gauge steel for the body. The door is 1 11/16″ thick with an 10 gauge inner plate. All four sides of the door have 1.25″ chrome locking bolts. A mechanical lock is standard and both electronic and biometric locks are optional.

Browning opted to include fire resistance in this safe. The company rates the safe’s fire resistance at 1680˚ F for 100 minutes.

According to the company, the suggested retail price starts at $4,249 and goes up to $4,999 depending on options added.

Note: I am using the term “safe” in this article as the common use term, not the technical term used when describing a specific level of locking box security.

    Never Buy a safe with a laminated construction. Never.

    • Phil Hsueh

      Is this safe made with laminated construction?

      • ostiariusalpha

        No. In fact, as Mr. Johnson reveals in the article, this isn’t actually what would be considered a safe in the technical sense. It’s just a decently built residential security container.

    Just my opinion,but multiple smaller safes are a better choice. I have everything stored so they would need to get into at least 2 to come away with an operational firearm. Plus, more affordable per unit and much easier to move.

    • AndyHasky

      So if only 1 safe gets stolen you have twice as many non operational guns? You’re weird man…

      • DrewN

        Hey, I’m insured. if my stuff is going to get stolen I’d rather it was broken stuff. besides, they would need a rotary hammer at the very least to cart off one of mine.

    Hard 90deg corners means cheap shell, probably made in China and shipped here for final. “Safes” typically have rounded edges because thick steel doesn’t bend well 😉

      Not true. I have a Diebold Cashgard made of 1/2″ plate with a 1″ plate door. Its all square edges with fully welded seams. Its UL rated TL-30.

        ie…no bends at all…LOL

    Five grand for an 11 gauge container? Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. Lots of better options out there than this.

    • lamarlamar

      Actually, I agree. I worry about cordless grinders with 11 gauge metal!

    God. That video is just one big infomercial – ad.

      There’s two videos, not sure if you see it but the 2nd is a little more explanatory.

    Looks kinda pricey. Liberty Safes much more affordable and yet are professional quality.
