    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?

    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...

    I use Hardigg-Storm Cases which are now owned by Pelican Cases

    I use a Storm iM3300 case.

    Excellent Cases to protect your investment.

    They aren't cheap, but the best.

    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.

    For all mine will be getting transported I might just take that option.
