Maybe OK for a slimmer rifle, maybe my Steyr is too chubby, I wouldn't be happy with a sidewheel scope in it.

As for the "security" features, (which aren't what i bought it for at all), 3s with a flat blade screw driver for them.
To be honest if you want a case to fit a full blown FT rig "properly" and you want security a Peli case is the only solution. They are expensive, yes but what value do you place on your FT rig? Mine went through the baggage carousel at the airport in Budapest and looking at the state of the locks someone had tried and failed to open the case yet when I opened it and went to the zero range the rifle/scope hadn't moved by as much as a click. If you want a case that fits properly and will protect your precious rifle and scope the Peli is the "only" answer.
