Steelhead Outdoors Introduces Innovative Scout 25 High Security Gun Cabinet

American-Made, Modular Gun Cabinet

Shakopee, Minnesota (February 5, 2024) – Steelhead Outdoors, a leader in innovative gun storage solutions, introduces the Scout 25 Gun Cabinet. Engineered with the Made in USA quality you expect from Steelhead Outdoors, the Scout 25 offers affordability without compromising quality. Until now consumers shopping at this price point have been limited primarily to imported safes, discount locks or light duty sheet metal locking systems.

Built with 14-gauge steel and patent-pending vertical beam locking technology, the high security Scout 25 gun cabinet offers features not found anywhere else. A high-quality, UL listed Sargent and Greenleaf Spartan lock is protected by a single layer hard plate. The vertical beam locking technology positions the ¼” carriage on end and is fully supported to prevent bending, offering increased security over traditional bolts or bars floating behind a sheet metal door jamb. The locking carriage has 8 locking points that will lock every few inches along the door and each locking point engages with 8 reinforced slots to thwart pry attacks. For comparison, competitors’ products have simple 3-point mechanisms where they lock on the top and bottom with a small rod and lock in the middle with a rotating mechanism.

With the Scout series high security gun cabinets, firearms owners get modular, multi-panel, flexible construction with American steel and high-quality components. Because the Scout is assembled onsite, it can fit in places a traditional safe could never go. It can also function as an ammo cabinet when outfitted with Steelhead’s shelving kit instead of the 9-gun rack.

The Scout 25 comes in Badlands Brown with Recon Black accents and measures 25” wide x 60 “ tall x 15” deep. It features an inline 9-gun rack and a full width, adjustable steel shelf. It is customizable with additional shelves, door organizer panels and other accessories such as the Steelhead Outdoors 15” Case Keeper or Bow Keeper. It ships in 4 boxes, 6 panels – with the heaviest panel weighing only 60 lbs. so it’s easily assembled by one person. The completed cabinet weighs 175 lbs. The Scout retails for $1,600 and ships for $150 in the lower 48 United States.

"Our Steelhead Outdoors Scout high-security gun cabinet offers significantly upgraded gun cabinet features versus the competition," said Steelhead Outdoors Co-Founder Corey Meyer. "Our goal was to provide a best-in-class gun locker at a price point lower than our safes."

Firearms owners looking for safes with fire insulation, thicker gauge steel and more security will want to learn about Steelhead Outdoors safes starting at $2,700.

All Steelhead Outdoors Nomad and Recon modular gun safes are built to provide security, versatility and American-made quality for hunters, shooters, and firearm collectors.

What sets Steelhead Outdoors's modular gun safes apart is their ease of mobility and assembly. Unlike traditional safes that often require hiring specialized moving companies, Steelhead Outdoors's safes can be moved and assembled by just two people, eliminating costly or dangerous DIY misadventures.

The patented construction of the Steelhead Outdoors safes features a dual-stage fire protection system that does away with the need for dehumidifiers. A radiant heat reflecting coating rejects incoming heat, and the metal interior, made from nearly 100 percent nonflammable materials, provides added protection. The ceramic fire insulation used in the panels is rated to withstand temperatures of up to 2300 degrees, ensuring optimal security for precious firearms.

Steelhead Outdoors safes feature numerous high-end features, including double-wall construction with 12-gauge welded, powder-coated exterior panels and 20-gauge interior panels, along with a 7-gauge plate door (3/16”). A fully modular interior racking system ensures limitless configurations of shelving and gun racks, catering to individual needs and preferences.

These premium gun safes are available with either UL listed Type 1 S&G Titan direct-drive electronic keypad for rapid access or the group II dial lock for battery-less mechanical dependability, providing customers with reliable security solutions. The slip clutch in the handle protects the entire lock mechanism from attacks, while the cam-over-center direct-drive lock mechanism boasts metal bearings at every moving point.

Steelhead Outdoors's commitment to customer satisfaction extends to offering custom color options and configurations, enabling customers to personalize their safes to complement their living spaces and preferences perfectly.

About Steelhead Outdoors

Founded in 2016, Steelhead Outdoors is an innovative safe company offering the only American-made, modular, fire-insulated gun safe available currently on the market. Longtime friends, engineers and avid outdoorsmen, Charlie Pehrson and Corey Meyer, searched for a gun safe that was Made in USA, adaptable and offered a respectable level of fire and theft protection, but they soon realized this product didn’t exist. Since they couldn’t buy it, they decided to build it. Steelhead Outdoors was created with the goal of building a safe that customers could, and would want to, take with them from one home to the next, or pass down from one generation to the next. Four years of research and development went into the flagship Nomad Series, to create a durable, lasting and innovative modular gun safe.
