Ok...someone has to have a way.

Lets see some pics of how your store your Encore brls.

Getting a new safe and Im converting my old safe into an ammo and Encore storage safe. I just have to figure out how to hang the brls.

Any ideas?

I have frames for all my barrels BUT did see one guy who used dowels in the barrels so they would stand in the gun safe slots.

Use the children angle for getting the safe(If you have any young enough)It works good!! LOL
If that angle fails tell her she could keep some of her more expensive pieces of jewelry in there to guard against theft------LOL
I will think of more for you if those 2 fail!!!!!! LOL

TCP...watch leaving a gun in a case like that. I just pulled a gun out of a case a few weeks ago and it was soaked with condensation and covered in rust. UUUGGGG

Dependant on how your safe is configured, you could fashion a hanger to hang in place of the "gun rests" that would go through the hinge pin hole. Or make a plate on with dowels going up for the barrels to fit on, However I prefer to keep things away from my rifling. Unless its a patch/brush/projectile.

Jon8777 and I have been talking about this for months. He found this on another site. I think this is what we might try.

The problem is finding the plastic. Right now the only place we can find it is online. Any idea where you can buy stuff like this?

That almost looks like the kind of teflon that I had used for some motorcycle parts that I made and I think that it may have been purchased out of the Graingers catalog, If I get a chance I will try to find it again.
Care to share any measurments on the one already made in the pic?
Great idea and it looks good, I just may have to make one for my safe.

I got a safe this past weekend. I purchased the 10 gun safe from tractor supply by sentry safe. Its nothing special, just something as a deterant for would be thieves. And yes, I did bolt it to the floor and will be bolting it to the wall as well this weekend.

The plastic in question, I believe is Derlin. We machine a lot of that in my machine shop I work at.

They keep pretty close tabs on the material we have on stock. But I do know someone that knows someone...lol I will see if they have any laying around in the scrape bin. Highly unlikely though.

Keep me posted it anyone figures out any dimensions.

I will ask a guy that does some machine shop stuff for us if he knows any other place to get it.
