Thread: Decent rifle case

  1. #1

    Decent rifle case

    Evening all, got the chance for a couple of stalking trips in Scotland. Being based in Hampshire I have sorted the flight options, form and fee with flybe to take my rifle.

    i now need a good quality rifle case. Happy to pay £££ once for good kit as my rifle and scope is worth a lot of £. Any recommendations welcome please. Thanks in advance

    One of the Peli's should do the trick. Something like this

    there's a load of them that take two rifles etc. I've got one and it's a good quality piece of kit. Haven't lobbed it out of any helicopters yet, but looks like it'd be fine.

    I have a peli 1750 great bit of kit, bit on the heavy-bulky side but affords the best protection for your equipment and great peace of mind that its all safe and protected.

    Nothing but a peli for me. Have you seen the way baggage handlers treat your case!

    I would buy secondhand. They get marked up in transit and at the end of the day you save a few quid. In fact get one wothout foam and buy an AIM drag bag. They fit perfectly inside the 1750 and you can use it for all your kit when at your destination.

    I think you can get the 3300 as well which they seem to claim is lighter.

    When I needed one I bought a Napier/Winchester Alloy and composite case:-

    They have gone up a lot since 2003.

    It has some small dents and scars thanks to the baggage apes but when the rifle was checked for zero in the US it was still fine. I got mine from The Sportsman as I recall.

    Doing a web search also brought this up:-

    Great price too.

    Thanks all, some great advice. I will be going the Peli route as it looks "good quality buy once kit" and it will see plenty of use.

    When I bought mine I had not heard of Peli so I went with what I could find and it's served me well. At the time the shop had offers on these and I believe I paid £75 posted back in 2003.

    Just seen their warranty wording:
