    They are pretty comparable.

    If it was me I would recomend spending a little more change and go with a BF series AMSEC. The plate on the door is much thicker and the fire protection is made from a poured compound instead of pieces of sheetrock glued to the inside of the box.

    I've seen A LOT of that sheetrock fall over the years and cause lockouts on safes by blocking the boltwork.

    Safes, like locks, keep honest people honest. My main worry is theft, not fire. I have a large steelwater (slightly different from new ones - 39 gun?) and am quite happy with it. Free shipping and rolled it right into my garage. A few bolts to the cement floor and away we go. They are good safes for the money and I saved a ton over the local vendors who would not deal.

    good luck!

    I decided on the Liberty.
