I have to go with the 1770, 50" is just a tad too short for a 11-111 LRH and way too long for the 11 Lightweight 308.
Of course I was wondering about the foam cutting procedure, but if it works, so be it. I'll have to buy an electric carving knife or 'borrow' one for the ocassion.
Ars there any other alternatives to the Pelican? I see Plano makes an airline approved case and there are some aluminum ones out there, but I'm leaning toward a Pelican because it 'looks' very well built, injection moulded I mean.....
I'm presuming it's heavy in weight, even empty so it does have substantial wheels and handles?
Finally, what type of locks do I need for commercial airline travel? Is there some particular brand or style that the airlines want?
I want as little issues as possible and I want my guns to travel in the plane's belly without mishap.
