5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate weapon protection, September 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pelican 1750 Rifle Case with Foam (Long Case, Multi-Purpose) - Desert Tan (Camera)
We used these for my tours in baghdad and Central America with special ops, and never had a problem, so when I saw the pelican cases on civilian purchase I snared one years ago. This is my third one, as I now hunt with my kids and that means several weapons.
Bottom line: the gorillas at the airline baggage system cannot hurt your weapon or scope once it is in this case.
Simple setup: put your weapon on the foam, draw an outline. Use anything you want to cut the outline (they sell fancy melting wires, not needed if you can handle a kitchen knife without severing a digit) out of the middle foam layer. Your weapon will then be cradled with firm foam intact layer on the bottom, form fitting cut out soft layer around it, and then another firm layer on top.
The foam is just the beginning of the protection. The case seals solid with 4 lockable snaps. The wheels roll well and are protected. It is relatively light and easy to handle.
Buy the extra foam and you can use it for more than one type of rifle, just switch out the custom cut layer.
I can fit 2 hunting rifles, even 1ar15 and a hunting rifle in a single case.
You can also cut out for one rifle and optics.
It will only fit one African safari type rifle due to barrel length and muzzle brake.
War story: we once accidentally dropped one of these cases with a sniper rifle in it from about 80 feet off the back of a chopper when the pilot flared in a aggressive pattern too high. When we got on the ground and recovered the weapon, it was still sighted in and scope was intact. Don't try this at home.

Well, reading that made my decision for me in an instant. It also reminded me, once again, what this reviewer and so many of his brothers in arms have done for us. Thank you.
