    Trying to find a good rifle hard case and soft case for my rig. I have a sendero with with an nightforce NXS 3.5-15x56 on it. In the future I may put on a longer barrel. I figure the case has to be at least 52" long.

    I have heard of cases made out of cordura are good.

    No complaints with my Pelican,it's been on a couple a flights and worked well. Got those handy little wheels also. Found a sharp electric knife does a great job of cutting the foam.

    Where can you get a good price on a 52 inch Starlight?

    I've bought them direct from Brock at Starlight. Recently there was a apparently a deal between Starlight and Sam's Club that went to hell in a hand basket and final outcome was apparently that Starlight was not pleased. Sam's had them for prices below $100.00 but with less than premium foam. Brock is a good guy and makes a good product, I'd try calling direct to him and getting the premium foam at the same time.

    I did a search on ebay and a number of them are selling for 80. Maybe they are from sam's club with crap foam???

    I bought two starlights. One from Starlight directly and one from Sam's ($89). The foam is the same in both. I'm totally happy with them. The latches on both are super tight and tough to open. I had to shave them down a bit so I could open them without a tool.
