During the beginning of December 2007, I started shopping around for a gun case to fit my HW97K. I needed the case purely because I couldn't fit my rifle with the hamster attached into a gun carry bag. (Yes I know I could have removed the damn hamster but I dont want to remove it every time...)
I started shopping around a bit on the net and in almost every gunshop in and around PTA. I was quoted prices in the region of anything between R800 (half case) to almost R3000 (double case) and really couldn't understand the neccessity for such a REDICULOUS price for a few pieces of Aluminum and plastic, and obviously some sponge...
Following this I decided to make my own Double rifle case, to my own specifications. I made it from pine plywood which I stained dark and sealed.
My case is 120cms x 40cms x 11 cms. All lined with the casing foam and it is lockable. Only drawback it it is obviously not watertight, but that wasn't one of my requirements.
It set me back the full amount of R200 for some stain, locks and a handle.
My intention with this post is to advise you guys to maybe try and make it yourself instead of paying rediculus amounts of money for the readily obtainable item. Unless you want to obviously.
