Gun safes are great for keeping your gun collection safe and secure, but they can be an absolute nightmare to move around. The Steelhead Outdoors Modular Gun Safe models change all of that. These unique safes come in six panels, making transportation a one or two-man job. Once you’ve got your spot picked out, these modular safes are easy to assemble in place.


The Steelhead Modular Gun Safe looks most compelling as a gun safe that you can move all by yourself. You don’t need a 6-man team to help move it. You can also move it to a new house or location without destroying the drywall and/or door frames. Moving is a reality—and it’s a shame when a perfectly good safe has to be left behind.

Counterintuitively, Steelhead Outdoors ships this modular gun safe in 6 panels. You assemble the pieces with a hex wrench. If you ever need to move the safe, it’s easy to disassemble again.

The assembly bolts remain accessible only from the inside. That means the door must already be open to assemble or disassemble the safe. The visible carriage bolts on the outside of the Steelhead Outdoors Modular Gun Safe attach to braces that hold the interior panels in place until final assembly. They also serve to reinforce the shelving system.

Steelhead Outdoors claims the interior racking system of the Modular Gun Safe offers infinite possibilities of shelving and gun rack configurations. Their standard options include a single horseshoe gun holder, a double horseshoe gun holder, and multi-row maximum gun racking.

You can also upgrade with gear panels for your doors, rechargeable motion-activated lights, a collection of different colors, and upgraded electronic locks.

Steelhead Outdoors sells the Modular Gun Safe directly from their factory in Minnesota. They come in a variety of sizes, and you can choose a number of options and configurations. Starting with the smallest model with the base configurations, these safes start at $2,495 and move up from there.

You should note though, that because your gun safe is built-to-order, you can expect from 2-4 weeks from when you place your order to when your safe is shipped.
