Does anyone make a hard case for the AR-15 that splits the lower and upper receivers? So you can case them apart, and also has room for mags and whatever else. I have searched everywhere, and I couldnt find one, but I thought Ive seen an ad for them before in some gun magazine.

Thanks in advance.

I know Cav Arms has a soft-case version:

But for a hard case, I'd recommend looking in paintballing sections of stores, as that would be about the right size for a split AR. Not sure how well those would hold magazines, however.

If money isn't an issue, I'd look at Pelican cases, as I know they make some really nice ones (waterproof and all that). Here's an example of one of their weapon cases: http://pelican.com/cases_detail.php?Case=1700
Not sure if that was what you were looking for. You might have to look for a case that is the size you need for your AR.

The blue Rock River Arms safe case sounds like what you are looking for. They aren't practical for much but shipping and storage, so I figure you can probably get one on the secondary market as I don't know if they sell them direct.

Here's an ebay auction for one: http://cgi.ebay.com/Rock-River-Arms-rifle-case-also-fits-Armalite-Colt-etc_W0QQitemZ110158018682QQihZ001QQcategoryZ22699QQcmdZViewItem

I was going to suggest the RRA blue case as well. I have one that the gun came in - although as stated it isn't much good except for shipping and storage.

I was looking for a nice lockable foam inserted case. I have seen one before, company was Starlight. I just found it in a gun mag, It was holding an Armalite Super SASS. hmmm.... I looked on their site, but its about useless, I will have to contact them and see if they make them, or I may just have to buy a case, and make my own cutouts.

edit: Nevermind... my suggestion (Pelican 1700) was already mentioned.

If you're looking for a starlight case, try here: http://www.starlightcases.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=starlight&Category_Code=cases

They have customizable foam as lots of cases do, so you can make it fit whatever you want.
