Pistol Racks

I just had a safe installed and now I am looking for pistol racks that will fit in the safe. The pistols I have that will be going into this safe are revolvers all varying barrel lengths. Any suggestions on which racks to look at?

I'd consider

http://www.brownells.com/shooting-ac...009390_d_22546

or

http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/2-VER102110

Both work as advertised.

(Although I'd buy them from anywhere but CTD.)

Try www.manaboutracks.com. He will custom make racks to fit your safe dimensions and the type of guns that will inhabit the racks. Had custom made racks for my safe several years ago and everyone that sees them is impressed.

www.manaboutracks.com was very high on my list off options. But I was not sure how safe they would be. Because I read in several places that some custom made gun racks have issues that could damage your guns. Apparently some of the glues and finished used on gun racks over time releases Chemical vapor that could cause your guns to discolor and even rust.

Go to Walmart and get a couple of vinyl coated plate or lid racks. They hold several autos vertically just fine.

I got one of these two weeks ago:
http://www.meadowsdisplaycases.com/display_gun8.htm

That was $53 + $20.36 shipping.
They don't tell you the shipping they just charge it, so i would call about the shipping.

I got the Oak with green felt for 8 handguns. It was better than I could make, and I am a C+ woodworker.

Picked this up at the local Cabela's. More info about them in my handgun rack review and handgun hanger review.

Second the comment about Walmart racks. I found that the space between my shelf and top of the save was a tad small and several of the racks shown/mentioned above didn't have enough room. The rack from Walmart was just an adjustable length shelf and pistol barrels will fit between the wires and are held by spring tension and the trigger guard inside. It will also hold revolvers though a heavy bull-barrel may not fit. There is enough room under the shelf for a few magazines and other accessories or boxes of ammo. Mine holds 12 assorted and cost about $13 IIRC.

I got a couple more at the gunshow on Saturday.
I talked to the guy that made them.
They were $40 each.
