Regal FSR 3660 Gun Safe Review
This safe was discontinued in 2012.
Heritage Safes has a long tradition of manufacturing top quality gun safes. The Regal FSR 3660 model is part of the Regal Series offered by Heritage. The Regal series has 5 different models you can choose. Technically, you may see this model referred to as the Fortress Security Regal Series, hence the “FSR” in the model number.
The Regal Series is a value choice when it comes to safes. It has many positive features, but also has some deficiencies that you will have to either accept based on your personal situation or move on to a different option.
The FSR 3660 is right in the middle of the series in terms of size. Its maximum gun capacity is 48 guns. There are two smaller safes and two larger ones. Let’s take a look at what makes (or does not make) this a possible candidate to protect your gun collection.
Heritage Safes Key Advantages
- UL RSC Certified: While it may get mundane since many gun safes have this certification, it is not automatic and is a key starting point to evaluating a residential gun safe.
- 75 Minute IRT Certified Fire Rating: 75 minutes is a good fire rating for a value oriented safe. It is funny to see some safe manufacturers tout how great 30 or even 20 minutes is for their value series. You don’t have to sugar coat this fire rating.
- UL Group II S&G Lock: Again, Like the RSC certification, this can often be overlooked because a lot of safes have this type of lock. Nonetheless, a lot don’t, so I will list it as a definite advantage.
- Locking Bolts: The Regal FSR 3660 has 14 locking bolts distributed on all four sides of the gun safe door. Seems basic when talking about more expensive options, but not so basic when evaluating value gun safes.
Heritage Safes Key Disadvantages
- Height: The FSR3660 gun safe height is only 60 inches. If you have taller guns, make sure they will fit.
- Steel: The entire Regal series uses 11 gauge steel. This is not awful, but a little thinner than I like to see.
- Weight: The weight of this safe is 800 pounds. I list this as a disadvantage because I like to see a heavier safe (typically 1000 pounds or more). However, viewed only in the context of a value level type of gun safe, this is pretty good.
- Warranty: As stated in other Heritage reviews, Heritage Safes have a good warranty, but not an outstanding warranty. I feel there is too many conditions and limitations compared with other similar level manufacturers. I think they listened to their lawyer a little too much!
Fit and Finish
You have 4 glossy and 4 textured exterior finishes to choose. Only one interior color, beige, is offered. There are multiple interior configurations possible. Lighting and dehumidifier kits are available.
Some anecdotal pricing is that the Regal Series is in the $2,000-$3,500 range, depending upon which size model you choose. This is generally puts it in line with other mid tier options. I like this safe, but do not like the warranty. If they would have done just a little better on the steel gauge, I would like it even more. Again, if you have longer rifles, make sure they will fit before you make this purchase.
