Lincoln Ratings and Reviews
There are only three (very) minor things notable.
(1) We thought, for a few minutes, that the flex gun rack was missing. The installer did not show us how it works. The manual also does not speak to it. We just happened to bend over and look up and noticed that the flex gun rack was beneath the flex rack cover (which looks just like any of the other shelf). Either better documentation or demo by the installer would have been nice.
(2) Our safe included the accessory door panel. It has pockets for hanging your pistols. These work great for my glocks and 1911's. But, alas, the Desert Eagle does not fit in the pocket. Granted, the DE is a big pistol, and that would be a lot of weight hanging on the door pocket ... but, it would be better if the barrel holes were slightly bigger or adjustable (velcro? )
(3) There was still sawdust and some other small debris inside the safe. Would be nice if they cleaned it up before delivering.
Just received our second Lincoln LZ-50 series ? one can never have too many Liberty safes ? they are the best! The first one was sufficient but was "minimally" crowded, and our smaller ancient Browning over the past two years became overstuffed. It has since been sold. Now with the additional LZ-50, all contents of two safes are spread apart for much easier access, with no more digging to the back for accessing items. There is also plenty of room for future expansion --- a lot more than I thought there would be. However at this point we do not intend on adding many more items to the safes. The first LZ-50 has the standard one-side rifle storage. The new one was custom ordered with some extra shelves, as we are not storing rifles. Don't add junky plywood shelves to your safe ? it deserves better and your dealer can order shelves for you; they are much better looking, extremely strong, and not that expensive.
Hey Liberty --- What is the difference between an LZ-50 and an LX-50? Is an LZ-50 simply a custom-ordered LX-50? Just curious!
INTERIOR AUTOMATIC LIGHTING SYSTEM:
The new safe arrived with a dead automatic lighting system. While the safe was being installed, I phoned Liberty about the problem and they assured a replacement light kit would go right out to me. The safe and my custom combination also got registered during that call, VERY convenient. It's a shame that the lighting was not tested beforehand. Replacing the parts is very easy, but this chore was a real time-wasting annoyance needlessly heaped upon a customer; a real let-down. For an almost $3800 safe, issues such as this should not be going out the factory door. Customer Review Posts at Liberty within the Lighting Accessories section show these lighting system failures are "seemingly" not all that uncommon, either at or not too long after (within a year or so,) of the safes being delivered. Quality of the lighting system needs to be dealt with better at manufacture. It would not take but a few minutes at the factory to verify a lighting system is 100% functional. On the other hand, the automatic lights in my 2014 LZ-50 have operated flawlessly from day one --- with probably thousands of operations.
BTW, there is no point of manufacture listed on the lighting kit box or on any of the parts themselves, not even a "USA." Odd. Wonder where it is made.
It turned out that there were two problems with my lights. First, it was the movement sensor that was dead. Second, after replacing the bad sensor with the new one, one of the two-wand light segments did not work. Plugging one end of it into the new sensor made only the wand segment CLOSEST to the sensor function. Turned around, it was the same deal. Both segments are good, but only one at a time will light. This means there is likely a broken wire BETWEEN the two segment sections. Liberty got the new kit to me in four days, weekend included. All is well now with the lighting system and I now have a good spare power supply and a good spare 4-segment wand section --- just in case.
SHELF "RETAINING PROJECTIONS":
Shelves have "projections" at the rear end sides that catch on the vertical clip bars, I imagine to prevent "forward" shelf movement. Unfortunately the projections are not at the right place, so the shelves "can be moved" about 1-1/2" forward if moving something heavy on a shelf. If the projections were changed to be positioned correctly, the shelf projection would contact the clip bar with no "gap" and the shelf would not move forward at all. This is a very picky point, but it is a correction that could be easily made on the cutting machine setup and would not cost anything to correct.
DIAL LIGHT ACCESSORY:
I do highly recommend that all safe purchasers (at least for a safe with a manual dial lock) ante up a few dollars more for the magnetic dial light accessory. The lights are more than an excellent bargain for their low cost and anti-glare usefulness. Two red LED dial lights were purchased aftermarket at the time of the second safe and we REALLY like these lights. Much better than annoying overly-bright, blinding flashlight glare when you need more light. Our safes with the gold dials and black paint-fill are quite reflective with glare and are actually difficult to read when a flashlight may be necessary. My ancient Browning safe (exact same lock dial design) with a black dial and white paint was always so easy to read and had no glare.
JEWELRY DRAWER STOPS:
The jewelry drawers could benefit with a safety-stop addition. For our own peace of mind -and any future owner- I modified the jewelry drawer boxes by installing two small angle brackets to each box's upper panel so that the drawers cannot be accidentally pulled completely out, dumping contents to the floor. (Users may have a hard-surface floor and do not need any fine watches or fragile or heirloom jewelry going there.) It would be a good future feature for Liberty to update the drawers to incorporate drawer stops. To remove/install the drawer, it merely needs to be angled somewhat up or down to make it clear the rear drawer panel past the brackets. Wood screws that are short enough not to pierce through to the upper surface were used on the brackets. The factory could add a glued-in block of wood at point of manufacture for a very low-cost, effective drawer stop. No need to add any expensive mechanical drawer slides.
One thing I have liked as much as owning Liberty safes themselves is watching all the videos that Liberty / youtube has posted. The interior dynamite video is fascinating they way the competitor's safe is blown to smithereens while the Liberty safe merely "burps." Not a real life scenario, but it does highlight typical construction superiority that is incorporated into Liberty's products. It is both amusing and scary how the competition grinds down their welds (for aesthetics) until they are very thin and weak! "DUH!"
Even considering the minor annoyance points I listed above, I will still give the Liberty Lincoln LZ-50's a Five Star rating for overall quality and value for the dollar. Not to mention that their great size and weight is quite intimidating.
The guys at Moore Security made the whole buying experience great from the store to the delivery the service was outstanding.Will highly recommend them.
I've never regretted getting the large Lincoln model. You will use it for much more than guns.
Made in USA
Product quality is as expected except the door tolerances may be off. With the door shut you can easily see the light on inside.
We ordered the Lincoln 25, Green Marble w/the Gold Trim and electronic lock. The safe is absolutely beautiful, the powder coating is excellent, and looks great in our bedroom.
We hope to do another safe with you guys in the future - the Lincoln 25 is a great size, especially for the bedroom, but would love to do a larger Presidential Model for my office.
Keep up the great work - we would definitely recommend Liberty Safe (and have) to our friends and family.
Liberty's Response:Sounds like your safe had a rough ride getting to you. I assure you we will get you fixed up and taken care of. We will be in touch in the next 24 hours.
I purchased this safe online from Gander Mountain because of the substantial savings. I wisely used a portion of those savings to employ three movers from a local specialty mover (A1 Movers, Prairie du Sac, WI), with extensive safe moving experience, to move the safe. With the safe barely off the truck lift they unwrapped the safe on the street, inspected the safe for damage in transit and proceeded to protective wrap the safe and move it to my garage. While in the garage we opened the safe, removed the shelving, tested the lock, and again prepared it for a move to the basement.
The safe arrived at its final location in the basement with no damage and no unnecessary excitement. I recommend you save some money by buying this from Gander and then find a great local mover to get the job done. Enticing a few friends with beer to move a safe is a pretty bad idea compared to hiring experienced professionals to handle the job.
The safe is great - well made and arrived in perfect condition. My only negative comment is that the black decals on the burgundy finish do not pop like they should. Liberty should have used gold or white to really enhance the graphics and beauty of the safe. Otherwise, this is an heirloom purchase which will protect our valuables from fire and theft for years, and perhaps generations, to come.
Also, I wouldn't mind to find a door gap shrinker... they are a little wider than I would like, looks easy to get a pry bar in there. If it ever happens I hope the safe does its job.
After about 3 months I noticed that the electronic lock developed an annoying plastic squeeking sound when you turn the ring on the outside. I may try to take it apart and rub the friction points with a bar of soap or a light oil to stop the squeeking.... but it shouldn't do it in the first place.
All minor things, still a great investment and would purchase again. Have recommended to several friends that ended up buying one too.
It has a total of 18 one inch diameter locking bolts, two on top, two on the bottom and seven on each side.
My Lincoln safe matches the size of the Presidential 40 series safe in height, width and depth.
The quality of the safe is very good. I store my collection of 1911 Les Baer and Ed Brown pistols in this safe as well as a Colt Python, Beretta 92 FS, two Sig Sauer's a P226 and a P229 and a Kimber TLE II 1911. I also store my camera bodies and lens' in this safe as well as important documents.
I decided that I wanted the dial combination lock instead of the electronic lock as Koons Locksmith who I bought the safe from recommended the dial combination lock being less prone to future failure.
I highly recommend the liberty line of safes and fully recommend the Lincoln, Presidential and National Security models.
After a few days, I went into the room where I keep the safe an noticed a place on the front that looks like it was scratched while the paint was still wet. When the light coming through the window hits it, it looks really bad. Once you see it, you see it every time you look at the safe.
I called Dee at Liberty Safe customer service. Dee was professional and very eager to help me resolve my problem. She stated she would call the original installer to schedule replacement of my safe and I was impressed and happy to know that Liberty would stand behind the safe.
I waited a few days and called my original installer, Mark at 360 Security in Lyman, SC. This was after I sent him a text with no response. He was indignant and totally changed from the helpful person he portrayed when selling me the safe. I asked him how long it would take and he was evasive and said he had to get paperwork from Liberty and then schedule a time to pick up the safe from another dealer. He seemed not to really care about my problem. He has my money. He said he was too busy working and did not have time to respond to my text or answer any questions. Said he would call me when he heard something. Crappy attitude.
Not happy at this point. Liberty seems willing to do the right thing, but now I am thinking I don't want 360 Security back in my home. I do not recommend them for installations and wonder now what will happen.
I left Dee a message but no response.
So like I said, the Jury is still out on this one!

Liberty's Response:Yes, you have a valid concern regarding the completion of your service. I will let the customer service manager know and we'll see what we can do from a manufacturing standpoint.
Police and Sheriff's deputies had been to that house a few times, and the most recent undesirable family had a really bad-tempered evil guy who the police told us was known to them and was on probation. Judging by problems he was causing not only within his own family, it seemed as though he was not trying at all to avoid going back to the Graybar Hotel. They moved away only a few months after appearing, and we hope the evil guy eventually returned to where he belonged.
Scary and dangerous neighbors since 1991 urged us to become well armed, trained and concealed-carry certified since 1993. Two safes were purchased during those early years. (We made an oft heard typical mistake of not initially going with a very large safe.)
Fortunately, as mentioned above, the problem house was ultimately foreclosed on in 2012 and the new ownership company obviously does actual tenant background and financial checks. The new renters are a really nice family.
Over the years the two safes we had obtained became packed like sardine cans. A new large capacity safe became mandatory. Shopping ensued. But this time it was fun as it was not being forced on us out of fear.
No new safes researched were as impressive as the features, security and pricing of LIBERTY.
The newest Browning's looked at had a very sickening and bizarre odor emanating from their interior components - something that at the very least was awful, albeit we would hope not a health issue. Also I was not impressed with their 'in-door' rifle storage feature dimensions. But perhaps that is just me.
A Cannon-made SAFARI model viewed earlier at a Sporting products store was rather unimpressive.
In June 2014 a Lincoln model LZ50 was custom ordered from The Safe Store in Phoenix.
Our safe arrived at The Safe Store on July 18. Due to their workload it could not be delivered and installed to our home for eleven days. Not any big deal for us. They did check it over and stated it was in perfect condition.
Our transaction was exactly six weeks to the day from placing the order to delivery and installation.
Naturally we have always opted to have our safes anchored to the concrete slab. This is a no-brainer for its very miniscule $50 cost. Burglars have been known to tip safes over out of frustration and anger, resulting in unnecessary damage to contents. Why risk that.
By the way, the Safe Store technicians were very pleasant, professional and efficient. The installation went quickly and they thoroughly explained features and checked and adjusted the door closure. A tech had also set and tested my custom combination before they brought the safe to my home.
The interior appointment of the Lincoln is fairly good. Materials appear to be durable, protective, they are easily adjustable, nice looking, and the 'rope lighting' is excellent at illuminating most of the interior. Proper lighting is a valuable asset. Our other safes often require use of a flashlight and that is an annoyance. HINT: A safe with a lighter colored interior such as Liberty installs is a real benefit.
However, the Lincoln should have an LED lighting strip across the top. It is pretty dark up there on the top shelf. (The Safe Store told me that the Lincoln does not come with an across-the-top LED strip.)
The Lincoln 50 is so much wider and deeper than our old Browning. This safe is cavernous. Large Browning's are now standardized as shallower units at 27 inches.
The model 50 safe has nicely accepted 'overflow' from our other overly crowded safes.
The USA-made Lincoln LZ50 was $4743 with tax and other inherent charges. This well engineered, primarily unbreachable fire resistant #1-rated safe is worth the peace of mind, cost and storage volume.
Plan ahead that over the years your family will accumulate very important things, and may even unexpectedly inherit valuables and sentimental items. Therefore, if you are a 'first safe' buyer, be smart and spend your money on nothing less than the largest and highest quality safe you can possibly afford and accommodate.
