5.0 out of 5 stars Why buy anything other than a Pelican??, February 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pelican 1750-000-110 1750 Black Rifle/Shotgun Case (Sports)
To start with, I live by the saying "you get what you pay for". YES, Pelican brand cases are expensive. YES, you can find similar cases much cheaper. NO, they aren't the same! I own MANY different brands of cases, and if you're just transporting a gun or two from your home to the range, ok fine. A Plano or similar case will "work". If you plan on transporting your gun on a plane somewhere, or you have a high quality expensive firearm (or camera equipment, computer parts, etc), then just "works" doesn't work for me. I have purchased other Pelican cases in the past, and with good reason. They have the highest quality, the most durable materials, and stand behind their products 100%.

Pros:
Durable, high impact case with 4 latches AND lock eyelets with steel rings for security
high quality foam inserts, not the cheap egg crate foam
automatic pressure release valve
TSA approved for airline travel (NOTE, not ALL cases can be carried on a plane!
high impact wheels for easy transport, also has a top carry handle to give you options

Cons:
the case itself is very heavy. you could drive a car or truck over the case and it wouldn't break. Once you load a 10-15lb rifle (or in my case, a 35lb rifle) it's a bit of a chore regardless.
price is high - yes, but again you can't expect high quality AND a cheap price. That's not how it works
foam is somewhat difficult to work with. Plan on spending some time PREPARING to do your cutouts. You don't want to mess it up, since replacement foam is upwards of $30. Plan, draw, review, THEN cut!

That's my review in a nutshell. Hope it helps!

Can it carry two scoped rifles (say to Remington 700's)?

It would depend on what brand and model scope. Standard scopes less than 3" above the top of the rifle will probably fit without too much trouble. Again, just plan then plan again on your foam cutting!
