Thanks,

draw a tight outline of the gear w/ a sharpie, use a serrated bread knife, electric knife or hot wire cutter if you have access to one, or feel like making one, to do the cutting.

I should've thought of the bread knife!

Thanks.

Looks great!

Are there 3 layers of foam? 1 on the lid and 2 in the case? Or is the case a solid piece?

Dace,

The red dot sight you think is from airsoft is a SPOT sight I got from Grant @ G&R. After buying an ACOG for my M4gery and building my 1928 Navy Prototype Thompson SBR, I just didn't have the scratch for an Aimpoint. The SPOT will do just fine for a while. I was going to get an Aimpoint this month but I am looking at the Springfield XD-45ACP instead. Just can't seem to get my priorities straight.

I was just like "damn thousands of dollars in guns and equipment in that case and then an asian red dot sight.

But I can understand the priorities thing. Seems like I am always buying the guns and never the accessories to finish those guns.

Since you are in PA, I'll give you an important tip on cutting the foam- leave it outside when the temperature drops below freezing. The colder the better. The foam will be easier to cut straight and perpendicular when "frozen." I wish I had known that trick for my starlight foam. You could of course put it in a freezer if you have one big enough...
