My birthday last week and the girlfriend told me that I had a small gift coming. Today the Brown Truck of Happiness brought a 1750 pelican hardcase. I always saw them and thought they looked kinda cool but these things rock. sturdy as all hell. Problem is Now I got to figure out which rifle to make the cutouts for. That won't be easy. Just had to gloat a bit. Cheers Jim

been thinking about a 1700 for my CAR-15. did it come with "pick & pluck" foam or will you have to cut it out. My shopping/pricing showed the 1700 to be cheapest at www.cases4less They have foam replacements. also. Do you expect any gun oil - foam reaction? And will you be concerned about condensation in an airtight case? Seems a little ironic to have to leave an airtight case propped open to avoid a problem like that. NICE gift

Peliccan's are nice. I have one for my first aid kit on my truck.

You have to cut out the foam. I messed mine up by trying to cut it for two AR15's. Botach has a good price on foam replacements for those who dare...

I know that alot of folks don't like ordering from Botah, BUT.... ...the 1700 for $131.00! (They have them in stock, too) That's $100 LESS than JT.

Pluck foam falls apart eventually. I'd recommend avoiding it.
