    Man.....they seem to be hard to find:

    I need a decent case for traveling; at least 52" internal dimension, but can't be too heavy. The Pelican 1750 is too heavy.

    Any help would be appreciated

    For air travel, gotta be lockable

    Ordered a Pelican 1770 today. 36 pounds empty, 54-1/2" internal. Been looking around for about a year, not many choices. This one should do the job but it put a dent in my wallet. $500.00. It will hold 3 or 4 long guns though.

    I love the Pelican cases; but they are too heavy for this rifle. When you go over 50 lbs at the air port you get hammered with fees.
