Default Recommend me a good value hard case

Hi fellas

Newbie to the forum so firstly .... Hello.

Just spent a considerable amount of cash ( to me anyway ) on a rifle and am looking to pick up a decent hard case for it.
Need something suitable for a big scoped FT set up and hopefully looking to spend not much more than 100.
Is it possible? What does everyone use?

depends on what you want it for... travel in the car, or by air?

might help to get an idea of size, ie rifle length, and the most common problem, depth... if it's shallow, it will open quite a few possibilities... if its a deep FT rig, you start to lose the cheaper alternatives.

or, have you considered a softbag?

These are good sized gun cases for 55

http://www.shooting-the-breeze.com/f...ead.php?t=4318

Their not great at being driven over by a BMW, but at least your Gun will be ok if its in it at the time.
Comes with locks, but i think i would say they are not flight cases?

fits Big ft rig.

Cheers for the replies
It's a Daystate GP and through time will have something like a Big Nikko or equivilent.

I just want it for transporting in the car and protection in the house.

After seeing those pics I won't grudge shelling out whatever it costs me for a hard case

Softbag would be ok if I could get a decent very well padded one.

if a soft bag will do and you want a really good depth bag have a look at one of these.

Have a look at KarlC 's post in the for sale section, he had a couple of very good ones 2nd hand, but in good nick.

I do find a softbox nice for most work... got some hard cases, but they tend to only come out for stuff abroad...

Excellent Cases to protect your investment.

They aren't cheap, but the best.

You can also get cheaper replacement foam inserts from

Not a recommendation just a note on experience....
Bought a Gungaurd AW Series about 3 years ago for 120. THis was one of the few cases that would take my FT rig. The handle fixing snapped on the first time I pickled it up with a gun in situ. Replaced the fixing and been OK since. Wanted a another box about 2 months ago and posted on here to seen to what was available. No response. Since bought another Gungaurd. This time it cost 170 and guess what? ... the handle broke on the first time it was used. Now waiting for replacment handle.

Just my expererience.

Dean
