    E Cat Safe

    I got carried away at an estate auction and brought a gunsafe. Turns out its E Cat, and just way too much for me.
    It must weigh about 100-120kg - its made of 6mm steel. Double locks - covered hinges, with internal covers to stop levers.
    No brand that I can see.
    Approx external dimensions w=45, d=28, h=121

    I'm after $550 - but would do cash + trade on a smaller A Cat safe.
    Pickup Wellington area - I can hardly move the thing on my own. If you want freight I could drop off to Mainfreight in town - but you would need to get them to have a pallet ready.
    Few paint scratches, but in good condition mechanically.

    Will go on trademe this Friday, as I need it out of the garage - its in the way and its a pain.

    I would say that the single lock and the external hinges mean it wouldn’t pass as E-Cat.
    But still a decent A Cat safe.

    Its dual lock, just took a photo of one of them - top and bottom.
    Fair point re the hinges - I'm not up with the play re E cat etc.

    The external hinges are fine for e-cat as long as the door can’t be removed if the hinges are cut when it’s locked.

    The angle iron welded to the inside of the door on this safe are there for that purpose, they hook around the frame. I’d say it’s good for e-cat.

    Makes sense - thanks for that.
    I suspect that previous owner had it full of pistols, there is what looks like a homemade rack that came with it for sliding pistols onto.
