Our Take:

As an avid gun owner, my biggest fear is finding my firearms collection fall into the wrong hands, thieves or be it children. Quite naturally, my collection is large and hence I require a large gun safe. The Stack-On E-24-MG-C-S-DS fits the bill perfectly with its wide expansive storage space and side door hangers, organizers plus top shelf for keeping side arms such as revolvers and pistols or ammunition. The interior space can actually be compartmentalized so you can pack in more than just guns and ammo. I hold boxes, video CDs, documents and valuables that I don’t want lying around the house. While one side offers the perfect spot to keep rifles, shotguns and stuff, the other side has handy zip bags that help holster smaller guns and carry additional documents. Being a gun safe, it naturally comes with state of the art protection system and you get steel plating on the front, to the sides as well as hidden hinges and live locking bolts with a few dead bolts. The Stack-On E-24-MG-C-S-DS is fire safe with ETL testing to confirm its application for domestic purpose. This safe depends on a combination lock to help against unauthorized entries using a three handle lever to lock down.

Space & Size: 4/5

24 guns is what Stack-On says this safe can accommodate but from personal experience, I already knew that it would, at best, pack in 18 guns. My suspicions were confirmed after I received the safe and in fact, it is a tight fit just trying to get 18 large rifles and shotguns together. I don’t personally own that many guns but if I did, I would have been a tad bit disappointed. The reason for this is because there is a lot of compartmentalization in the safe, which is a good thing though as it helps secure much more than just guns and ammunition.

Build Quality: 5/5

The Stack-On E-24-MG-C-S-DS weighs quite a lot and I feel this weight directly translates to its safety record. With steel plates lining the sides as it does the front, you know drilling isn’t going to crack the safe from any side. As for the combination lock, it is fool proof with live locking bolts, dead bolts and thick padded and hidden hinged doors. All-in-all, it appears to be a rugged and air-tight safe. Plus, having fire safety does help knowing that your guns can withstand minor fire mishaps.

Large size with lots of compartments, shelves, bags and 24 gun capacity, easy locking mechanism and solid construction.

Security Features: 5/5

Like mentioned previously, the Stack-On E-24-MG-C-S-DS packs in live locking bolts, dead bolts, hidden hinges and a rugged construction. Together, they are capable of keeping any determined burglar at bay. For the price this 24 gun safe retails at, you probably won’t find another better suited for fanatical collectors of guns.

Packaging & Shipping: 5/5

Amazon is probably the best place to source these gun safes from. Owing to its weight and size, trying to get it from any other source will incur a shipping and transportation charge, which is inclusive of the price on There were no dents, scratches of anything to report on the safe when I received it and the delivery guys helped me get it into the house and into the room where it finally rested.

Warranty & Maintenance: 5/5

Stack-On has a good record with any product of theirs. While the warranty they provide doesn’t cover tampering attempts or fire damage to the exterior, it is exhaustive enough to cover the combination lock, bolt malfunctioning and such trivial issues. Not that you will ever call on their service technicians in your lifetime looking at the construction of this safe but it is good to know that the important things are covered by warranty. As for maintenance, nothing much to really keep your eyes on.

Our Overall Rating: 4.7/5

To some, the Stack-On E-24-MG-C-S-DS might just seem like an old school safe but it is actually much more modern than many in the market. Not only is it built like a fortress but also fire resistant. Lack of visible hinges, thickened plates to the sides, live locking bolts and a fool-proof combination lock all add to its safety ratings.
