Encore barrel cases

I've been looking, but have been unable to locate an adequate(durable) case for storing and carrying Encore barrels. I would like a hard shell case if possible that can hold 4-6 barrels or more from 12" to 15", that have individual slots for each barrel that can be strapped in place. I've thought about making one, but I know somewhere out there they exist. Any help?

something very similar to that, but not as expensive. I've seen cases that have the "memory" padding in them, and the individual straps for each barrel, but that was along time ago-and before I started acquiring barrels. But thanks for the e-mail address, maybe they have something closer to what I'm looking for.

Gutterman - Are these scoped barrels? You could have a go at making your own case. Get a double rifle case and replace the foam with some high density foam, 2 layers deep. 1st layer is protective, second is cut to hold the barrels. Third layer actually goes in the other half of the case. I have a cheap double rifle case that will hold a CVA Optima elite with 2 scoped barrels and my garand. Some new foam and an exacto knife would go really far... expecially if your barrels aren't scoped. If the case is just for storing barrels, a cheap break action shotgun case (about 80 dollars round here for a metal one, plus another 50 in foam) with new foam should be exactly what you are looking for.
