    Im looking for something that will hold 18-20 long guns, that fits inside the safe, and spins around. Anybody know of a company that makes something like this? The gun I want always seems to be in the very back of the safe these days.

    I thought it would be a great idea until I started asking around. Click on the address above.

    Good luck,

    Andy.

    I have one in my corner safe and it's a pain in the b--. It's has shelving around the turn table & in all reality the amount of guns is about 60%. Hope this helps. Joe

    I bought two of the ones above. I put one in the safe but took it out, wasted more space than it was worth. The spaces are too close together to put anything next to a bolt action or semiauto unless you remove the bolt and/or charging handle.

    I built my own. Picked up a lazy susan bearing base at the local hardware. Cut the gun holders from 3/4" plywood. Lined the cuts with stick-on felt where the holder touches the stock. Used black pipe and floor flanges to mount the gun holders to. I ran a smaller piece of pipe into the top and secured it to the shelf above for added stability. I made mind with the muzzles pointing down so any bore oil/solvent will not run down into the stock.

    Thanks all for your information. I called the place today, and there is a catch to the product. First off a 16 gun rack won't hold 16 guns with scopes, only 8. If you stagger them back and forth, say a bolt gun then a single barrel shot gun, you may get 14 in the rack. But the bolts may have to be removed. And it won't work one barrel up and the next barrel down cause the stock won't fit in the barrel notch/holder. I'm just going to buy another safe, so I can buy more guns. It never ends, does it?

    The carousel is 18" in diameter. It holds 14 guns.

    I built the gunsafe (copy of a Browning). It's 36" wide, 24" deep and 72" high. It weighs 1000 lbs. without the interior.
