Pelican Protector Cases are made with Copolymer Polypropylene, using an open cell core and solid wall construction, which is stronger and lighter that the completion. You can tell its a Pelican case by the distinctive "twin-ribbed" top surface. Stainless steel pins are used for hinges and handles. The new Double-Throw latches are much easier to open.

ANATOMY OF A PELICAN CASE
Ultimate Equipment Protection
For over 30 years Pelican has built a reputation for manufacturing the toughest cases in the world. As a matter of fact, we invented the category. Over these years we've seen our cases used for some fairly crazy activities...and important ones too.
Pelican Cases have been thrown out of helicopters in Iraq, floated through frigid fjords in Norway and rolled over by SUVs in Tanzania. With only a few scratches to show on the outside, contents inside are left unscathed. These are minor details for major bragging rights. And that is really what it's all about. Getting your gear from point A to point B in the condition it's meant to be in: intact and functional. Because it might contain a large format camera that will shoot next month's magazine cover or a heart defibrillator that could save a person's life, you can't put a price on it.
Stronger by DesignPelican Cases are made with a proprietary combination of homo co-polymers, using an open cell core and solid wall construction, which is stronger and lighter than a solid core wall. Stainless steel pins are used in hinges and handles.
The secret is the tongue and groove fit with a polymer o-ring acting as a waterproof seal.
Cool Under Pressure
Automatic Pressure Equalization Valve releases built-up air pressure while keeping water molecules out, resulting in a watertight case that is even easier to open.
Stainless steel ball bearing wheels last longer and ride smoother. The nylon hub adjacent to the stainless steel is made to resist heat. The result is less wear and tear on the polyurethane wheel.
Stainless steel hasp protectors are a Pelican exclusive. The Double-Throw latches are smarter and easier to open: it's the classic "C" clamp design with a secondary movement that works like a pry bar to start the release and offers plenty of leverage to open with a light pull.
Custom engraved nameplates are available for a nominal fee.
Reinforced Padlock Protectors
Stainless steel reinforced padlock protectors provide added strength and extra security against cutting and theft.
Top Customer Reviews
Cutting the foam was easier than expected. I initially planned to use a hot nichrome wire to cut the foam from a stencil, but found that a serrated knife worked just fine. I followed the instructions and used chalk to outline, then cut in about 1/4" from the outline. This creates a very snug fit. In the end this was exactly what I was looking for to carry my gear to the range. It's overkill in that I'm sure I could drop the loaded case from a three story building and the gear would survive (and I really don't need that). All that protection adds to the weight, and while I knew it would be heavy, it's a lot heavier than the no frills factory case.
Only things I would change is the non-collapsible side handle and the fact that it won't stand up on the narrow edge with the wheels (minor issues). Here's a tip when arranging your gear: consider the weight distribution so the case is balanced from the handle.
Regarding the solid-core foam, it makes for an absolutely beautiful case layout if cut properly. Don't use an electric turkey knife! Just go to YouTube and search "Custom Hot Wire Foam Cutting Pelican Case". There is a great video showing how to make and use a Hot Wire Cutter for the Pelican cases.
I recommend watching youtube videos for tips on cutting the foam, but its a piece of cake with an electric knife. Just be sure to cut a few starting points with a pocket knife or boxcutter.
My only "negative" for this case would be that I wished it came with the pluck and pull foam, but I knew it didn't ahead of time. If you are looking for a durable, long lasting storage and traveling solution for your firearms, you owe it to yourself to check out this case. You wont be disappointed.
Pelican products are simply the gold standard for travel cases. They are extremely durable, the warranty is amazing, and their designs are well thought out. My experience with this case follows their reputation.
The case has two metal reinforced holes for padlocks and 2 additional non-reinforced holes, perhaps for use with tamper-evident tags, zip ties, etc.
Note that this case has foam that must be cut to fit what you are placing in it. The best way to do this is put your items backwards on the bottom of the foam, trace the outlines of the items in the arrangement you want with chalk, a chalk pen, or a sharpie-type marker, and make cuts. Then flip over. This will hide any markings (if you used a sharpie) and unclean edges from piercing into the foam.
The preferred method to cut is with a hot-wire knife, with a power knife (think turkey on thanksgiving) coming in second. However, a long bladed knife or a disposable box cutter extended all the way works as well.
The ONLY thing I would change about the 1700 case is I wish it had the fold down handle like the 1720 does.
FYI...I used a set of ABUS 64TI/40 locks(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G7P3A2W?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_4) to secure the lid, per TSA regulations, and they were a perfect fit.
