Starlite cases are very strong and impact resistant. They cost more than the Pelican. But my M16 or M60 is worth it. Someone sells them in the EE, I think, about $185. Do a search.

I'm on a starlight kick. I've picked up 4 used ones, and they're great. Very sturdy.

Pelican 1750 for an M4......................... BWWWAAAAAAAHAHAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAA­A He didn't say for an AR-10(T). Dave S ...but the 1700 should do rather nicely.

i second that.... the 1750 is WAY oversized for a carbine. i just picked up a 1700 and it is absolutely perfect.... it fit my Dissipator (16" plus CavComp, Cavalry Arms C1 Stock), 6 mags, and plenty more room to cut out when i figure out what else to put in there!

Go do research on Starlight cases. Not only are they BETTER than a Pelican Case they are CHEAPER too (retail price) and used for all delicate equipment by our own military. Starlight is THE case to own. [url]http://www.starlightcases.com/[/url] The following link is Starlight Vs Pelican. Pelican looses... [url]http://www.starlightcases.com/comparisons.htm[/url]

Starlight all the way, baby! This from a Pelican fan. Starlight is EVEN BETTER! I compared them myself and I am telling you the Starlight is the shiznit!

I have an SKB general purpose case (2SKB-3613G) that my carbine fits perfectly into (literally). I was sold on it based on prior experience with the quality of their cases. I have an SKB LP style case that my Gibson Les Paul Studio is kept in. SKB build is fantastic. It wasn't overly expensive either. If I recall, I paid about $130 for my rifle case.

[b] The bad part about my suggestion is I was thinking the smaller case . I even have the smaller one but for some reason I was thinking 1750 was the small one not the 1700. Either case you decide on , try looking on Ebay you can usually get a good deal there . [/b]

The problem with both Pelican and Starlight is that they don't have an intermediate rifle case size. The 52" is way too large for a carbine, and the 38" model won't accept most AKs equipped with a muzzle brake or full-length stock. At least most of the soft case manufacturers offer a 42" size.

An AK 74 fits in the smaller Starlight when inserted diagonally.

A VEPR-II with a muzzle brake won't.
