I live on top of a mountain, deep in the woods and have been researching safes for about two years before purchasing this safe. I had the electronic lock replaced with the mechanical combination lock by the dealer and I'm very satisfied with the function and security of the lock and safe. The only complaint I have is the arrangement for long guns inside the safe. In order to place or remove rifles in the back rows I have to remove several of the forward stowed rifles. This is a minor inconvenience, and the sense of security from burglary and fire is definitely worth it.

The quality and workmanship is outstanding. The fire rating was the game changer when I made my selection on which safe to purchase. I would recommend this safe to my friends.

written by Jason on December 9, 2018
Excellent safe and I am happy with the product. I am having some trouble with the dial combination and have to rattle the dial to get it to catch and allow the lock to release to open the safe. I thought the dial was the safe route to go for dependability.

Liberty Safes - good value & selection - American made
written by JimmyT in Folsom on October 25, 2018
Liberty Safes offer a good value and good selection. Be sure to do your home work and get prices on safes, accessories, and delivery/setup. You should be able to negotiate a little bit with the dealer. Ask for rebates & incentives, or 'dinged' or display models.

So far I have plenty of room I was told if I see a safe that fits me to get the next size up, so I did and I'm so happy so happy I did that.
Liberty Fat Boy Jr., a . great combination of features for the p
written by Greg A on October 11, 2018
This is the 2nd Liberty Fatboy Jr. I've purchased. This one went in my vacation home. On this one, I changed it up a little and found one with a custom green/ turquoise color , which I didn't even think they made until I saw it in the showroom. My first one was black. This one also has the electronic combination lock. I already like it better than the dial on my first one. As long as it works forever and ever, that will likely never change. For the price, I looked and looked, and did find another safe with the better capacity, features, build quality and warranty. If this is in your price window, it's also the best safe you can buy for the money.
Great Buy & Fast Delivery
written by HellFireOne on September 15, 2018
Bought the Fatboy, Jr. on a Tuesday and it was delivered on Wednesday. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Delivery was fast and efficient.

Good value for the size and quality of the safe. Delivery an anchoring fee is a little pricey but otherwise no complaints. I let the safe stand open for the first few weeks to make sure any carpet glue, etc. had time to dry out. When I went to go put in my stuff I discovered the door seals fell off. I called customer service and they were helpful in sending me some new ones.

GREAT SAFE FOR THE PRICE, COULD IMPROVE ON LOOKS AND ADD LIGHTS ON THE INSIDE TO TIDY THINGS UP LIKE THE PRESIDENTIAL. ALSO SHOULD HAVE KEYPAD LOCK, IT SHOULD'NT BE AN ACCESSORY ITEM. ALSO SAFE SHOULD HAVE THE ELECTRICITY PORT ON THE INSIDE. OVERALL GREAT SAFE FOR THE MONEY.
Gun Safes Are Not Just For Guns
written by Skid the Kid on July 15, 2018
This safe is not as deep as the fat boy and works better for rare books and documents. I had to have the dealer get extra shelving and covers to make the gun slots disappear so the shelving would hold books. The chrome combination dial is a little too bright and too small increments are displayed. A larger black dial with white digits would be easier to read. The safe works great but the spindles are sort of puny looking and I would prefer a beefier appearance like the old "railroad" safes dials and handles and spindles.
VERY HAPPY WITH PURCHASE
written by Happy Don on July 14, 2018
Dealt with a great dealer who offered free delivery and was in and out of my house fast. Setup and instruction was easy. The safe is great. It has the "Military Style bars"instaed of bolts(still trying to find out more about them). The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars instead of 5 was because I thought that they could have offered a better organizer for the inside of the door. The one it came with seems very, very minimal and really seemed to detract from the whole impression. Many other brands that I looked at had quite impressive, well thought out door organizers. That being said though -I did come to the conclusion that this would be the best safe for me - cost, size, fire rating and a nice interior! I also added an electrical package with a dehumidifier and 5 wand LED Light package installed by the dealer.

This safe has lots of room, the inside was very well put together and can be organized in many ways, it also came with a door organizer. I had an outlet and heater installed for moisture. (American made except for some of the parts) I went with a bigger safe than I originally thought but I don't think I will be sorry. I just got the safe so a little hard to rate everything but so far so good.
written by John on May 4, 2018
I've had my safe for two days now and love it! I was considering the purchase when my wife purchased the safe as a surprise while I was out of town. I also got the led lighting kit and the electrical outlet.
Great safe, great quality
written by Go for quality over price on April 29, 2018
I received my safe and guys installing it where super nice and friendly. Upon installation we noticed one of the handles was not able to screw in due to obstruction in threads, still waiting on warranty work to be done but otherwise happy with service and quality of safe.

Big Enough, Secure Enough
written by Silent Ninja on April 9, 2018
It has an interior that is clean and can be customized. And it is large enough to put guns and other items (sensitive documents, hard drives, etc.) in the safes. Works for me.

Not Fancy but Adequate
written by The Original Fatboy on February 15, 2018
Great safe for the price. No bells and whistles and not the same level of security as some of the more expensive models, but this will keep out anyone who isn't a professional at breaking into safes. Lifetime warranty and made in the USA are just added bonuses.
Great Price point for a size easy to get into a house

I chose the Fatboy Jr safe upon the salesperson stating that it was the safe he was looking at when financially able. My intention was simple to get another safe to meet my needs but upon the sales counselor recommendation I am very happy that I was directed to a much larger safe to accommodate guns and ammo for approximately the same price that I would have paid on a smaller safe with more bells and whistles that I could care less about.
If you want a large, quality safe without a lot of features at a great price go no further than the fat boy jr.
Love the FatBoy jr. hate the installation by mike wards.

Great safe, would have been 5 stars except for the installation by Mike Wards.
May fit half of the stated amount long guns
written by Nick on January 5, 2018
Very nice safe. The only complaint I have is I could only fit 13 guns comfortably in one side using their dividers.

The one in showroom was everything I was looking for a good price. Having an issue with the door but so far the retailer and customer service are treating me very well.
Too soon to tell
written by Stargrazer on November 2, 2017
Just got the safe. Its definitely a budget model but is well put together and roomy. Glad we bought the big size. It definitely needs to be screwed down to the floor/ cement and will be doing that this weekend. When you open the door the whole safe leans forward a little. it will settle into the carpet were told and wont do that so much.
Buying my 1st safe.
written by Larry Neff on October 26, 2017
The salesman was great and very helpful. Knew what he was talking about. I have only had the safe at the house a few days and the only real downfall is it is so dark inside. A built in small light would be great. My wife and I actually had to move it from the room where we had it originally set up into a brighter room just for lighting. Looking forward to enjoying this purchase for many years to come.

Happy with my Fatboy 48 Jr.
written by Stradibarrius on October 6, 2017
The Fatboy 48 Jr. is a well built heavy safe with a flexable interior shelving. I gave it 4 stars and not 5 because my competition rifles are a bit long to fit under the top shelf. also the door will not close unless I put the larger guns in the back of the safe.. After I play around with the shelf arrangement some I might be able to find a better solution.

Good strong safe. External quality very good. Internal shelving quality leaves something to be desired. Internal padding could be secured better.
Great safe. Broken light kit with delivery.
written by Walt on September 6, 2017
Downside is door accessory panel that comes with the regular Fat Boy safe is not an option for the Fat Boy JR. But the doors are the same size.
Nice safe for the money
written by J. Larson on September 4, 2017
VERY solid safe. I like the interior flexibility. Its not too small, and yet not too big. My biggest complaint is there is NO way this should be advertised as a 48 gun safe. 30 guns if you are lucky is more like it. unless all you have is shotguns or .22's. Still for sub $1,500 a SUPER solid safe and great bang for the buck.

New purchase. Currently very satisfied.
written by Newby on August 30, 2017
Just purchased the fat boy Jr. So far I am satisfied with my purchase. The size both exterior and interior are perfect. The workmanship appears to reflect the pride taken in making the safes to produce a durable product. I think this will be around for a while and I feel comfortable securing my contents in my new Liberty Fat boy Jr. I would recommend the Liberty safe.
written by Rolly Stromberg on August 21, 2017
I only own a couple guns so actually my goal with this purchase was to be able to store the guns and also maximize storage of family heirlooms, etc within the safe. Only had the safe a few days but believe this one will suite my needs just fine.
Best Value based on Features
written by higgmic on August 15, 2017
Bought this safe after considering the cheaper alternatives at Tractor Supply (Cannon). While the Cannon is a great deal at $599 in my area, it did not compare to the quality of the MADE IN USA Fat Boy Jr. This safe has better fire rating, heavier steel construction, and better quality hardware. At double the cost, I still felt I was getting what I paid for and have better piece of mind that my money was well spent. The dealer did not have the combination lock model on his floor so I ended up with the electronic lock model. Although I think the electronic lock is easier, I worry about the longevity. I think the combination lock would be timeless. May consider changing this in the future.
so far so good...
