Our Top Pick for Mesa Gun Safe
Despite its elegant appearance, this is an amazingly tough safe with a lot of thought put into the details. It's easy to see why it's a customer favorite! This gun safe has all steel construction and has been tested to survive a fall from 2 stories high -what other gun safe can say that? It features 1 1/2 inch thick walls filled with fire resistant material that affords it a fire rating of one hour at temperatures up to 1750 degrees Fahrenheit. The interior setup features the standard design for long gun safe with a fully upholstered interior (including the back of the door,) fixed full-width shelf at the top, and four adjustable and removable shelves to allow for greater storage options.
But, what this gun safe has inside that other long gun safes don't have is an internal power strip with standard outlets for a dehumidifier or light, as well as a USB port for greater security options. With the shelving removed, this gun safe can hold up to 30 rifles and/or shotguns. It has four 1 inch diameter steel live action bolts and three dead bolts. External measurements are 59 inches by 32 inches by 22 inches, offering an internal capacity of 14.4 cubic feet. This gun safe weighs 665 pounds and is a dark chocolate brown color.

This gun safe features a lot of the same amazing features of the previous gun safe, with a solid 1 1/2 inch thick 12 gauge steel body, fire rating of one hour at temperatures up to 1750 degrees Fahrenheit, ability to survive a 2 story fall, and fully upholstered interior (including the back of the door.)
It also features the internal power strip with standard three-hole outlets and USB plug, four 1 inch thick steel live action bolts and 3 dead bolts, adjustable shelves (in this case three,) full width fixed shelf at the top, and a limited lifetime warranty.
This is a slightly smaller gun safe, holding up to fourteen rifles and/or shotguns. This gun safe has external measurements of 59 inches by 22 inches by 20 inches, with internal measurements of 55 3/8 inches by 18 1/4 inches by 13 inches to provide 7.9 cubic feet of storage capacity.

32 Rifle Gun Safe with Digital Lock MBF7236E
This Mesa gun safe has an amazing maximum capacity of 32 long guns, never mind how many handguns can be fit on the two fixed full-width shelves at the top. This makes this gun safe an excellent choice for those who are serious about their home protection measures or need more room to hold their gun collection.
It has all the features that you would expect from a Mesa gun safe with fully upholstered interior, fire rating of one hour at temperatures up to 1750 degrees Fahrenheit, 1 1/2 thick walls, all steel construction, and durability to survive a fall from two stories.
Four 1 inch diameter steel live action bolts and three deadbolts offer protection against the door being removed during a forced entry attack. The digital lock is complimented with a decorative brass spoke handle and black finish that give this gun safe a sleek and modern look.
In addition to the two fixed full-width shelves at the top, there are also six adjustable/removable shelves that allow you greater storage options. Of course, the use of these shelves does impact how many long guns you are able to store inside.

14 Rifle Lite Gun Safe with Electronic Lock MGL14E
Mesa Safe Company's MBF series offer great protection but with that comes some seriously heavy safes. For this reason, they offer the MGL series, consisting of gun safes of the same superior durability -but with a noticeable difference in weight. This gun safe has a maximum capacity of 14 rifles and/or shotguns, which makes it a great choice for the no-nonsense hunter.
It features a lot of similar features to the MBF series 14 Rifle Gun Safe which is also discussed in this Mesa gun safe review, but rather than the back breaking 551 pound weight, this gun safe only weighs 245 pounds. With that lighter weight, however, comes a reduced fire rating of thirty minutes at temperatures up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unlike the MBF 14 gun safe, this model features the internal power strip with 3 pronged outlets and USB port to allow you to conveniently plug in a dehumidifier, interior lights, and add additional security measures. The interior is fully upholstered and features one full width fixed shelf at the top (there are no adjustable shelves.) It measures 55 inches by 20 inches by 17 inches.
