Steelhead Outdoors designs innovative gun storage solutions. The latest innovation is the Small Fast Access Pistol Box that offers security for compact pistols like a Glock 19 in a smaller, lighter package. Steelhead pistol boxes are American-made with quality steel and are designed to be drill and pry-resistant. Weighing less than 15 pounds, these lockboxes can transport 1-2 handguns or pistols, and many can accommodate handguns with attachments. Each lock box has mounting holes to allow for secure mounting to a wall or floor or use the optional beefy security cable to tether the lock box to a vehicle.

The Small Fast Access Pistol Box features a Genuine Simplex lock for fast access without electronics, batteries, or keys. This pistol box was built for travel with easily going from nightstand to vehicle, to the hotel room. Formed and welded entirely from heavy duty 12-gauge steel, it’s engineered for security, usability and portability with the ability to secure the Fast Access Pistol Box with Steelhead’s signature 3’ long, 6,000 lb. rated, ¼” galvanized cable with 5/16” coating. No competitor offers a security cable this strong. The Fast Access Pistol Box measures 8.5” wide x 12.25” long x 3” tall and weighs just under 15 lbs. Suggested retail $300.

The Small Fast Access Pistol Box is a smaller, lighter fast access pistol box featuring the same heavy duty 12-gauge steel as the standard version. Measuring 6.5” wide x 11” deep x 3” tall, it can accommodate a compact pistol the size of a Glock 19. Weighing just under 12 lbs., this model is very portable and even easier to transport. Suggested retail $280.

The Small HD Pistol Box and Large HD Pistol Box feature a high-end key lock with a unique multi-sidebar arrangement that makes picking with traditional tools all but impossible. The lock has 6 billion key combinations and features a hardened drill-resistant body. This lock style is more secure and pick resistant than tubular and traditional wafer locks that are found on almost all other lockboxes. Steelhead engineers incorporated a double shear lock mechanism to provide increased pry support. Formed and welded entirely from heavy duty 12-gauge steel, Steelhead HD lock boxes are 75-160% thicker than most competitors who manufacture overseas using 16–20-gauge steel. Two keys are included.

The Small HD Pistol Box is 6.5” wide x 10” long x 3” tall and weighs just under 9 lbs. Suggested retail $170.

The Large HD Pistol Box measures 8.5” wide x 11” long x 3” tall and weighs just over 11 lbs. Suggested retail $190.

Massive ¼” hinges are staked, welded and feature an integrated pin guard to prevent punch attacks. Steelhead’s hinges are twice as thick as most hinges. Steelhead lock boxes come in a durable black textured powder coat finish with a charcoal grey handle. The lock box bottom features two layers of 3/8” foam to fine tune the gun fitment, while the top includes thick, compressible convoluted foam to hold firearms firmly in place.

The lock boxes base features four holes to allow for anchoring. A cable accessory can be used to secure the lock box within a vehicle or other settings. The optional Steelhead 3’ security cable accessory is American-made featuring a heavy duty ¼” 7×9 galvanized cable coated in nylon to 5/16” thick and rated to 6,000 lbs. The Steelhead cable is thicker than competitor cables and helps deter thieves.

Portable pistol lock boxes are relatively lightweight which makes them easy to transport and use in homes, vehicles and offices. Lock boxes help prevent accidental shootings and makes theft more difficult. A portable pistol lock box may also help a firearm owner comply with state or local laws regarding secure firearm storage. Peace of mind is an intangible, but it can be reassuring that a firearm is locked out of the reach of children, pets and unauthorized individuals. Firearms should be placed in locked storge and out of sight whenever a firearm isn’t under the owner’s control, according to National Shooting Sports Foundation literature.

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.

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. Headquartered in Shakopee, Minnesota, where all products are proudly designed, manufactured and shipped. Learn more at
