I am currently considering Starlight cases and pelican. I am moving and want some good hard cases for my guns. If there are other good brands please refer me to them.

The Starlight cases from SKD have two layers of foam, one for each rifle. Just buy one that's long enough for your AR-10.

I know nothing about Pelicans. I skipped them when I found the Starlights for $100 less...


ETA: Starlight cases also have a lifetime guarantee. The Army uses them for NOD cases. They are waterproof and airtight, with a pressure valve. They are not very pretty, and you can have any color you want so long as it's Olive Drab.

I fly with tools every week. My Pelican cases have survived 3 years of airline baggage tossers without significant damage. They get more and more scarred, but they don't break. It's also nice to have a waterproof case, as airline storage facilities aren't always covered.

Other guys I work with have other cases and they just replace them every other year or so. BSW

Go with a Pelican 1720 or 1750 they rock and are lifetime guaranteed to hold up to normal FWT. The 1750 is heavy even empty but there is so much room in there you could fit three ARs in there if you wanted them close with no lights or scopes. Look at their web site search on Google or another site. The Army uses them a lot.
Very REspectfully,

Some Sams Clubs have had Starlight double rifle cases at unbelievably cheap prices (like $65 for a $200 case), so you may want to try them first. My local Sams did not have them, but I was able to pick up a few not too far away. I own both Starlight and Pelican cases and the Starlight is slightly better IMHO.

I think the Hardigg storm cases are nicer than the pelicans. The latches are much nicer as are the handles. Just a nicer fit and finish than the pelicans, and what i would expect of a 150$-200$ case.
