AMSEC Gun Safes

Best Gun Safes Made in America

American Security gun safes, also known as AMSEC gun safes, are recognized as one of the world’s most secure safes. Built in the USA, AMSEC has long been known for its exceptional quality, dedicated customer service, and top-rated quality control protocols.

Founded in the late 1940s, AMSEC began as a small shop. Founder Glenn Hall saw the need for high-security safes that protected against fire and theft. With little more than a welder and a lathe, he began to build just that.

Today, the AMSEC building process has evolved. Their fully staffed engineering and ensign department uses the most advanced CAD system for rapid development and precise manufacturing.

American Security BF Series Gun Safes

The NW Safe Edition BF series features an extra-strong door made with a ½-inch of solid steel. The large, two-inch-thick bodies made these safes extremely hard to penetrate with power tools. And the 12 massive 1.5-inch chrome-plated bolts helped earn this gun safe series a UL Residential Security Container Burglary Classification.

BF Series AMSEC Safe FAQ

What kind of locking system do BF Series gun safes use?

A gun safe locking system, formally known as a locking mechanism, is the lock which keeps the door from opening. In the case of a BF Series gun safe, this is the lock which keeps the 12 massive 1½” Chrome Plated Bolts extended, holding the door closed.

All of the BF Series NW Safe Edition gun safes can be outfitted with a dial lock (aka a combination lock), electronic lock, or a biometric lock.

Is a BF Series safe considered a quick access safe?

While a digital keypad can reduce the amount of time it takes to access your BF Series safe, it is still not considered a quick access safe. Even for those with a lot of experience and practice opening the heavy duty door, it typically takes longer to open a BF Series safe than a safe designed to be opened quickly.

Does the BF Series have any additional features?

While a digital keypad can reduce the amount of time it takes to access your BF Series safe, it is still not considered a quick access the safe. Even for those with a lot of experience and practice opening the heavy duty door, it typically takes longer to open a BF Series safe than a safe designed to be opened quickly.

Is a BF Series Gun Safe a Good Rifle Safe?

Each of the high quality safes within the BF Series features a flexible interior. This allows gun owners to control how much of their space is utilized for shelving and how much is utilized for long gun storage, such as rifles and ARs.

For those with extensive gun collections, removing the shelving on both sides allows for more rifles and rifles with scopes to enjoy theft and fire protection.

Do you need a handgun safe when you have a BF Series safe?

The top shelf of our BF Series gun safes can be used to store a variety of valuables, including watches and hand guns. The complementary door organizer is also outfitted with handgun storage. However, many individuals are buying a gun safe, they like to also buy a dedicated handgun safe that can be installed in a more discrete location.

Burglar-Proof Gun Safe

Construction Ratings were established by the insurance industry to indicate the degree to which a safe will protect against an attempted burglary. In 1984, the independent non-profit Underwriters Laboratories was founded to offer a global independent resource for safety science.

Underwriters Laboratories developed the Test Performance Ratings for gun safes — the most highly respected testing method for determining how burglar-proof a safe is. All AMSEC gun safes and locks are tested by Underwriters Laboratories.

NW Safe in Enumclaw, your local safe and vault store, is proud to carry American Security BF Series gun safes. Our entire BF Series is outfitted with a UL rated lock to offer a high level of theft protection.

2 Hour Fireproof Gun safe

The gun safe industry is not regulated. Safe manufacturers can assign any fire rating to their product without being held accountable. While some manufacturers have developed internal testing procedures, AMSEC uses the stringent third-party testing provided by Underwriters Laboratories.

All of Underwriters Laboratories’ fire rating tests require that the product is brought to 1200° F within eight minutes and kept at that temperature for the duration of the test.

BF Series gun safes are outfitted with Seamless DryLight Fill — a concrete composite that is extremely heat resistant. Additionally, dual door seals help keep fire and smoke from breaching the safe through the minimal seams around the edge of the doors.
