I have been looking about getting a new safe and after quite a bit of research the best two (for the money) I can find is a Sturdy and I also found a company called Griffin Enterprise. The Sturdy looks like they are built very well and have heavy steel in them and the Griffin safes has quite a bit of steel with concrete as the fire liner and also has 3 glass plate relockers. They said the Griffin has 1/4 outer plate,1" concrete,1/8" steel another 1/2" concrete and then 1/8" steel in the door and the body has 1/8" steel then 1" concrete and another 1/8" steel plate on the inside. When I called them they confirmed that it is Concrete in the door and sides and not some knock off mixture.
Here is a link for the Griffin safe. This is thru another company but I called Griffin and they confirmed this is Griffin safes.

So does anyone have a Griffin and if so how do you like it? Does anyone know of another I should look at? Or how do you like the looks of the Griffin?
They make these about four hours away and I think I may ride down and take a look but I wanted to see what kind of different ideas other poeple has. From what I have seen is most everyone is using thin steel if they have thick steel the price goes out of sight. My old Liberty safe I have was built in 94 but is was before they started making them out of 12 ga. material. The two things I don't like about the Sturdy is only two fixed bolts on the hinge side of the door and then it has ancle iron at the top and bottom made from the bolt carrier. And the lack of a glass plate relocker.
