So the lever on my gun safe broke it is made by Sentry safe. It only has a one year warranty and i am at 2 years.

has anyone had a problem like this with a safe?

I was trying to open it and i noticed the weld on the lever was wiggly and after a few times opening and closing it finally snapped at the weld. It is clearly a manufacturer defect. Heres the pics. Oh and it broke with all my guns in it so i had to take a flat head screw driver and pound it in the hole and twist it to open it.
I sent Sentry safe an email but i have not heard back yet...

UPDATE: got an email back today almost 1 month later and they asked for a serial number and then they will send me the part to fix it.

Idk how the hell im going to replace that part myself???

Wow! what a cheap door handle. I would complain very loud to the company.:?

Looks like a thief could do the same thimg to steal your guns. Pry off the handle, get a screwdriver and open the door, take all the contents.

I agree with this. Remember to continuously use the word "unacceptable" seems to be the magic word with customer service people.
