    Uncle Mikes' black cordura case is very good.

    Blackhawk is more expensive and better yet.

    Ditto on the pelican. Why would you not spend money on a top of the line case, for a firearm worthy of such attention?

    Lowest price padded full length zippered with wrp around nylon hand straps you can find. Think Natchez has some that are very utilitarian for about 11 bucks. Not a option if you plan to travel by air and take the piece with you. Then it needs to be a lockable hard case that is airline certified.

    Tactical Tailor makes some nice soft-sided rifle bags. Not sure how their prices compare to the other options out there these days, but the one I bought from them for my M4 has help up really well for several years of use.

    I actually did a comparison of several soft cases somewhere here (Firearms Accessories I think) and went with the i-Shot; but the Tactical Tailor was a close runner up and good value. The TAG product was also nice. The Blackhawk looks cool but has limited utility compared to the others and like most Blackhawk products has a giant BLACKHAWK! label sewn on to the outside, so if you are looking for a discrete case, it may need some more work.

    blackhawk's quality never really impressed me. and as long as their marketing reminds me of extreme shock ammo, I can't imagine ever owning anything with their name on it. frankly, i'd wear pastels before blackhawk.

    but i am in the market for a good hardcase. ckay is the 2nd "storm is not worth the money" i've heard this month. (the other was closer to "not worth the money unless you're jumping out of airplanes with it")

    i'd love to hear any other storm vs pelican insights. also, comments on cut foam would be appreciated.

    taliv, I have a Pelican 1700 for another carbine. The Storm is made better IMO and a bit cheaper. If you were really set on spending up to $200 on a case, I'd get a Storm before going with a Pelican.

    My only issue with these cases is what you have stated. I'm not jumping out of airplanes with it.

    Cool cases, and once you cut the foam it offers a cool presentation for the rifle but the added weight isn't cool.

    The case will take a good beating though, that's for sure.

    I have a Pelican 1750 for my LR-308. While I am VERY impressed with the case, it weights a ton.

    Pelican

    I have my MK14 SEI Mod 0 is in a Pelican 1700 ... I think my LE 6920 will end up in one of the same.

    I agree with the sentiment that you probably don't need something like a Pelican or Storm for general use.

    I got Pelican 1750 for a good deal-- $175 so I grabbed one. I chose this one because my use for it was to be strapped to the back-rack of a 4-Wheeler during hunting season and driving through swampy trails.

    It may not be jumping out of airplanes, but that is certainly up there on the need for sercure transport.
