I own a number of safes of various sizes.
Stack-on: cheap, not good for much but keeping kids out.
Winchester: heavy, thick, and roomy. This one is about 600 lbs. Combo dial lock (older model), 1" bolts on at least 3 sides, 1.25" hinges, fully padded interior.
Liberty: bought with our new house. Probably 800 lbs. Push button code lock. Same hinge and bolt stats as the Winchester. Lighted and padded interior, with a fully pocketed door panel. Newest safe I own.
Cobalt: the granddaddy of em at 1200+ lbs. 1.25" bolts, about 30 of them. 3 1.5" hinges, with a dial combo lock. Full padded interior. Will not fit through the door without taking the door jamb apart... The walls are 1.5" thick steel.
These weights were all "empty" and approximations. My advice, buy the biggest one you can manage, keeping location in mind. A refrigerator dolly is a must when moving these heavy beasts.
Also, the sharp corners will cut 2" ratchet straps... Don't ask me how I know.
