Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GMD Not bad
My unit arrived with damage to the base. I have contacted them for a replacement. Took me 30 minutes to assemble. Here is my suggestions to the manufacturer for improvement in this product. 1. A lock for the clock door. 2. A shelf under clock to hide firearms below. 3. A clock that chimes like a grandfather clock. 4. Better packaging to prevent shipping damage. Yes, I would have paid up to $100 more for those improvements. Please American Furniture Classics, take my advice and add those features PLEASE.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteelShot Very good concept; average finished product
I saw this item listed on several sites online, but ordered it through Home Depot because of their ship-to-store option. The item arrived in the time frame promised, and I picked it up at my local HD. The carton is tall (just fits upright through a standard door frame), so I took the whole thing (carton and clock) to the place I was going to put it (end of a long hallway). I laid it down and opened the carton, and everything looked good, nothing was damaged. It took less than 5-10 minutes to unpack it, get it into place, and running. It looks really good overall, but upon close inspection, you can see that this is not fine furniture. The clock is keeping accurate time, and the overall look is very good, and a great focal point at the end of the hallway. But, I can't give it "excellent" since there are some minor flaws in the construction - fit and finish. But I can live with them for now, and can correct them later. Note: The space behind the clock face is open to the storage area below, my guess is, to accommodate longer firearms. The clock door does not lock, which is a security problem for the firearms below. I personally don't need the extra length, so I will be modifying the inside to close off that potential access. I do recommend this product, with some reservations - it is NOT a gun safe, if that's what you're looking for. But it is an attractive way to keep your firearms close at hand, but out of sight.
