While the Stack-On GCB-908 gun cabinet is not technically classified as a safe, it does meet the firearm storage standards set by the California DOJ. The three-point locking system secures the door at the top, bottom, and side, making it a suitable security option against pry attacks. This safe has the ability to store up to eight rifles or shotguns while also providing a top shelf for storing smaller items like ammunition or certain valuables.
Each Stack-On GCB-908 features all-steel construction, making it generally durable and resistance to basic brute force entry. The key-based lock is also double-bitted, making picking the lock more difficult than other key lock designs. Additionally, the locking system includes a plate that passes through to top and bottom, making the design more secure, and steel fastened plates increased the durability of the door from. The included mounting hardware and pre-drilled anchor holes allow you to secure the safe to the floor or wall, and the flush mount bottom facilitates easier fastening.
However, since the lock requires a key, the Stack-On GCB-908 might not be suitable in all situations, such as emergency home defense. To meet that need, the key would need to be kept relatively nearby, which may not be ideal depending on your household.
The Stack-On GCB-908 gun cabinet features patented molded, and padded barrel rests, allowing your rifles to be stored safely even with attached scopes or other accessories. The bottom is also padded to help keep your firearms protected against accidental damage when placing them in or removing them from the interior.
This gun cabinet measures 21 x 10 x 55 inches, making it suitable for storage in many smaller closets for added discretion. However, it only weighs just over 60 pounds, so proper installation is required. Otherwise, the cabinet can be lifted and carried with relative ease should a thief decide not to attempt to gain entry onsite. Further, the light weight shows that the steel used is relatively thin, so the interior could be accessed with the proper tools.
While customization options are limited, the upper shelf can be removed if necessary.However, it does not fully extend to the back of the safe, meaning it will not inhibit the storage of long guns that reach beyond the height of the shelf.
The Stack-On GCB-908 received four out of five stars.While it is suitable as a cabinet, it does not provide the level of security one would receive if they chose an actual gun safe instead.
