Was wondering what you guys thought was comparable to a pelican rifle case
I’ve used Cabela’s and Storm cases, no complaints.
Pelicsn now owns storm..its called the pelican storm
Boyt harness makes cases for cabelas and bass pro. Metal replaceable cam style latches, o ring seal, wheels, top and side handles with steel pin hinges, multiple pad lock bosses. I like my h51 double long gun case alot.
I got my FDE "H51" branded as a basspro case on sale for $159+free next day shipping about 4 years back--it works well, fits my 26" barrel xbolt with brake (just barely) and you can buy a new foam insert for about $30 from boyt so you can have it cut for different rifle set ups.
I put butterfly, flower, and rainbow peace sign stickers on the outside of mine for when I fly/travel, it seems they treat it nicer than my all black pelican case.
I like Explorer Cases better? I have 2 of these..I'm happy.It's hard to find cases long enough..
Little too expensive I dont wanna pay over 300ish
Buy a Pelican.
The case mentioned above is a better case but it cost 50% more.
I have 2 Boyts that have been all over the country with me - they are amazing. I’ve watched the airlines people throw them and drop them. My guns have come through unharmed everytime...
You put a rifle and scope worth like 7-8K in it and they cost too much? OK.
Also I like 28" barrels with a break so 30" and most Pelicans are too short inside.
They do make one for Surveying equipment that's long enough..
not everybody has rigs that cost $7-$8k. Lol. For some people thats hard to wrap their heads around
even if you have a set up that costs $1k i get wanting to protect it - and I really don’t see what the explorer case brings to the table that the boyt case doesnt other than length. Street price for the boyt is $200 ish.
I hate the foam in my Cabelas case and wish I had not bought it. It’s super soft foam which means it’s hell to cut.
I have a browning X-bolt white gold medallion in maple with octagon barrel on top I have a meopta meostar r1r with there new reticle
1 have had a boyt for a few years and would definitely buy another.
