Hear What Our Customers Are Saying
  • The safe arrived today. I am extremely pleased. It is finely made, and the level of security gives me great peace of mind. I move often, and the fact that it comes apart is extraordinarily valuable to me. I am very happy with it.


    T.J. Gaithersburg from Maryland
  • I can’t say enough nice things about my Zanotti ZII safe. I have had it for a decade now and it looks and functions like it did on day one. I know my firearms are safe and secure which means my family is safe and secure. I have moved it twice and it is super simple to break down and reassemble. I would highly recommend any of the Zanotti products.

  • This safe is even better than the rave reviews I’ve seen on various firearm forums. With a few tools, careful prep, and patience, it went together smoothly and you cannot tell it is a kit safe. In fact it is heavier duty, and far better made, than any of the cheap box store Chinese safes you’ll see. I literally never write reviews of products but I am so thrilled with the quality of this product that I felt it was worth throwing a few comments out there. Zanotti makes an awesome safe and it is clearly worth the price. They are THAT good.

  • I must say that I could not be happier. Any other safe would have required the enlistment of a moving crew. Thank you for making a quality product at an affordable price.

  • The deciding factor for me, and many of my friends, was their unique knock-down design. I have installed and moved the safe twice, both times in spaces that a fully assembled safe would not fit. Clever design, top quality components and hand assembly make these gun safes a great investment.

  • I can testify to the ease of moving the ZA-2 into my basement and its simple assembly; further to the challenge of getting the much smaller old safe it replaced out.  I will never buy another brand of safe.


    Michael from Topeka, KS
  • I had high expectations and can honestly say that they have been exceeded. The attention to detail and the quality of materials and workmanship are first-rate. I’m glad I bought your product, keep up the good work.
