Brown Safe “Tactical” Series Luxury Safes

Brown Safe, a “luxury” safe company, has within the last year started to get into the tactical firearms market. Rather than dipping their toes into the market with a single offering, Brown has gone whole-hog with the option of no less than 5 safes, including a rather interesting double-doors model, ranging from 10 guns to 44 guns.

Like other safe manufacturers, Brown sells the safes in custom configurations. Options abound including, but not limited to:

  • Various interior configurations
  • Adding fire protection (noted they are serious about it, adding it adds 5″ around the safe in all dimensions – rated 1700 F for 90 minutes.
  • Glass plate relocking device
  • Silent signaling with interface to alarm or home automation systems.
  • Molle panels
  • Entry methods
  • External storage
  • Colors
  • LED Lights
  • Picatinny Rails
  • Etc.

Perhaps most interesting is the “Tactical Elite” package which updates the safe with not just steel for protection from theft, but from ballistic threats as well. By the company’s video, the safes will take .50 BMG.

All these fancy options come a steep price. The safes start at around $3,000 with the double-doored option starting price clocking in at over $8,000. The options are not cheap either. For example, the molle panel on the large safe is over $2,000! For those curious on the Tactical Elite option on the big boy, it runs over $16,000.

Basically, if you have to ask, you can’t afford them. Still, it’s always fun to play around with the configurator on their site and see what could be with a lucky lottery ticket.

    If money was no problem I would think building a vault room would be a better option. Maybe for the summer homes in the mountains and the beach…………………………………………………….oops, lost myself thinking about winning the lottery.

    How many cheerleaders will that thing hold?

    (asking for a friend)

    • ostiariusalpha

      Texas cheerleaders or California cheerleaders?

          Does that require more abrasion resistance for au natural body hair?

    • plumber576

      Do they have to be in one piece?

    • Ambassador Vader

      Does it have a freezer add on?

  • ostiariusalpha

    $3000 is actually pretty cheap for a real safe. That’s not a bad deal, and I’m thinking about getting another unit. ?

  • Jt David

    I second the vote for a vault room if money was no object. However, Brown Safe’s seem to be priced competitively with other UL rated safes like Graffunder but they are a lot more spendy than the average residential security container.

    I was thinking of saving for a Graffunder model 7248 but that Brown Tactical Series model 7256 is pretty slick looking with some nice options, comparable UL safe ratings, and what appears to be a better price save a couple options. I guess I’ll look into it a little further to make sure I am comparing apples to apples.
    Thanks for the heads up on another option for a true gun safe.

    • John Yossarian

      Are these Brown Safes UL-rated? I looked, but couldn’t find that anywhere.

      • ostiariusalpha

        You probably won’t find a clear UL rating, but the design is a basic B-rate.

        • John Yossarian

          They shouldn’t cost as much as UL-rated safes unless they are UL-rated – I’d be looking at the Inkas Titan or Neptune instead.

          • ostiariusalpha

            Well, the Brown does cost about $1000 less MSRP than the Titan for the same interior space. I do like that TL-15 rating, so that’s something to think about. Thanks John.

    Why do we care if it can withstand bullets?

    • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

      So your house isnt destroyed if your Glocks and 1911s push each other over the edge and start a war inside your safe. An unfortunate circumstance that happens all too often…

      • VanDiemensLand

        My bad, I’d forgotten about their animosity! Hopefully you’re .500 S&W stays neutral!

  • iksnilol

    I really want to get a fake, super visible safe and fill it with counterfeit money.

    Just on the off chance that somebody breaks into it.

    A real safe I’d fill with a really messed up (albeit legal) porn collection in front, then hide money and valuables behind it.
