TL15 or 30 safes are the way to go. Used tl safes are on CL. Find a good mover or find a shop that sells old tl safes. They’ll be able to put in a mechanical lock and deliver.

Regarding price. Think I paid around $150 for a s&g dial lock, maybe a little less. Locksmith charged me around $150 to install and remove the electronic lock.

Years later, he replaced a spline key, serviced lock and changed the combo on a used amsec safe I picked up. He charged me around $200.

This is my first electronic lock..I'm not impressed at all. Sure, it's a lot faster but it doesn't always work on the first try.

I've got a few emails and calls out to local smiths to see what they would charge to install a S&G dial lock.
