    Default Hard Case

    I'm looking to buy a hard case. I've looked in at a few local dealers and it seems it will be best to order one from the US. At the prices I'm getting I could buy the wife a AA S200!!

    Make one ! I am just completing my third one . As I go along they just keep improving !

    A bit of pine , a bit of masonite , some nylon type foam , a couple of brass hinges & hasp & staple , a brass handle & you got it .
    Foam is the most expensive component !

    Total cost is under R 300 .

    I bought plain flat foam & make cut outs to fit rifle , pellet boxes , tools , silencer ( I take it off to make a more compact box ) & so on ,

    The box for my CZ is 1 m long & 350 mm wide , & 120mm . The box I made for the AIR ARMS S 400 , is a bit longer , I made it to fit with the silencer on & a bit generous all around .

    The one now is for my Cannon 737 , only 900mm long , 230mm wide , same depth .

    The egg box foam is a bit more expensive & you cant customise the inside to have a little hokkie for every thing .

    I just got one of those hard black plasitic flight cases with 4 clasps and 3 places to fit padlocks. Can take 2 rifles at once with the egg box foam in it, and it cost R350.00 from the dealer.. pretty good price I think considering they were selling the aluminium ones for R1650.00..

    There are lots of options. From Docasil (sp?), Flambeau through to a custom built aluminium Alpine case.
    How much do you want to spend?

    I rarely use my hard case now. Too bloody heavy to hulk around.

    Gerry, you got any pics of your cases ? Maybe we can ask you to make some custom ones for the boys down south ?!

    Hard cases are expensive if you go the Alpine route, otherwise ABS from +-R280 and Alu upto R650.
