I flipped over one of the foam inserts and custom cut the foam to fit my gun and accessories with an exacto knife.
Love the case it's awesome
First off the dimensions listed here are for the outside of the case. I had a suspicion that was the case...no pun intended. Keep in mind this case is all sorts of funky bevels and recesses so you loose a lot of actual internal space because of this sci-fi design.
However, even the internal dimensions that Plano lists on their literature, like the hand tag that came attached to this case (which is curiously absent from here) are, shall we say...wishful thinking. They claim internally it's 13" x 9.5" x 2.5". Well the 2.5" is close at least.
Here are the actual useful dimensions. Distance in the center lengthwise between padlock holes; 11.5". 12.75" otherwise. Distance in the center widthwise where the handle is; 7.125". Distance widthwise between latches; 8.25". The rest of the space widthwise is wasted space. You might, MIGHT be able to jam a thin 9" cleaning rod in there in that small space between the latches and the handle hole.
I bought this case for a particular gun, and it won't fit because of a matter of .25" widthwise.
What with a bit of slack in your padlock hasps, and the leverage effect, a determined person can reach into the case and pull a pistol out, even though it is, in theory, 'securely' padlocked.
I've got away with inspections by four TSA officers, but I don't want to push my luck any further.
As a regular gun case it is fine and good value, but for flying, not recommended.
S&W 22a with SCP-DC3039W red/green dot - fits like a glove with scope attached, room for a couple mags. No movement within with the case closed. Accommodation for a couple sizeable locks, if required. Bout what I expected based on the description.
Because of the lock holes and handle the internal usable are is 7 1/8" (7.125) by 11 5/8" (11.625) clear. Just keep that in mind when ordering. I was cautious based on the other size reviews so I was lucky in that my Neos fit snugly into the case.
Beyond the size issue though I love the case. It doesn't feel like a cheap case at all. The snaps have good resistance indicating a solid closure and there's good resistance if you press on the sides.
Of course this isn't some super hard case and you shouldn't expect that for this price. It's just a nice basic case. I can't give it a 4 star simply because the dimensions are misleading. There's *no possible way* that I could get my Neos in this box with a scope.
+ Everything fits
+ It has a handle (unlike many hard Irish flute cases)
- Not gonna lie...it's ugly
- Less spacious than I thought it would be (even after reading reviews & measuring flute against expected internal measurements). The little bits that come inward at the middle are the thing I like least.
I'll come back later and update if anything goes awry, but so far I'm happy!
