Steelhead Outdoors Adds Rustic Nomad 38 Modular Firearm Safe

Popular custom option added to line

Shakopee, MN (January 27, 2023) A custom finish offered on Steelhead Outdoors modular gun safes has become so popular it’s become part of the line. The Rustic Nomad 38 features the Rocky Mountain Rust finish highlighting the authentic beauty of natural age, patina and rust.

Based on consumer demand, Steelhead Outdoors set out to create an authentic rusty finish for their modular gun safes. In order to create a natural oxidation, the raw steel panels are cleaned to remove oils and contaminants, then acid washed to create the same oxidation that naturally occurs from years in the elements. The acid process simply accelerates the process. After the panels are oxidized, they are run through a neutralization process consisting of a multi-stage wash, pretreatment and an application of matte clear powder coating. This creates an authentic rusty finish with an outer layer of protection to slow the formation of any additional oxidation and to create a smooth contact surface on the entire safe. The Rustic Nomad 38 starts at $4,600 USD.

“The positive response to the Rocky Mountain Rust finish was exciting,” explained Steelhead Outdoors Co-Founder Corey Meyer. “We decided to add it to the line and offer it in the 38 size which is great for a larger firearm collection.”

Steelhead Outdoors offers three sizes of Nomad Series safes which feature many high-end security features expected in a premium gun safe. Prices start at $2,700. The patent-pending construction features a fully dry insulation system, eliminating the need for a dehumidifier. This system utilizes a radiant heat reflecting coating to reject incoming heat from entering the safe. The metal interior provides additional protection and is made from nearly 100 percent nonflammable materials. The panels are filled with ceramic fire insulation that is rated to 2300 degrees and is non-moisture trapping so it does not require the use of a dehumidifier and will not release steam into the safe in the event of a fire.

Steelhead Outdoors Gun Case Keeper is a great tool for hunters to help organize and store hunting gear. This magnetic accessory is designed to attach to the upper corner of a safe and can hold a maximum of 30 lbs. The adjustable system is capable of holding soft cases, game calls, rangefinders, optics or other items capable of hanging on a hook. Case Keeper will work on any 18 inches or deeper safe from any gun safe manufacturer and fits on all Steelhead Outdoors modular gun safes. Like Steelhead Outdoors line of modular gun safes, Case Keepers and accessory hooks are Made in America. Available at with a suggested retail of $49 USD.

Steelhead Outdoors also recently introduced the stealthy, Made in America Recon 38 tactical safe. The Recon 38 modular gun safe offers storage for firearms and associated gear in a flat textured black finish with graphite colored logo and handle and custom blacked out hardware. This tactical package includes a custom bolt-on roof rack for stowing extra gear and range bags. The rack’s raised perimeter helps keep items in place on top of the safe. The interior can be configured to hold from 10-35 long guns. Prices start at $4,400 USD. Tactical roof rack accessory hooks expand storage options on the safe exterior.

Steelhead Outdoors created its Homestead Vault Doors collection as an alternative to modular gun safes for people with large gun collections or who want to create a safe room in their home. Safe rooms aren’t just for Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes. More people are incorporating safe rooms in their homes to protect their family and keep their valuables secure.
