Thinking about purchasing a #1700 Pelican Case for my B/M Carbine. B/M has collapsable stock and fixed handle w/ Trijicon TA11. Q). Any owner with this type set-up have Pros/Cons. Good fit, Bad fit? Your anticipated input and opinions are greatly appreciated.

if you do not have a break on the barrel, then it will fit perfectly. i have my dissipator in a 1700, excellent case for sure.

hoosier, thanks for your thread. I do have a break on mine. It's the 3-port comp Bushmaster sells. Sure glad you advised me. Thanks.

If you have a collapsable stock, the length (even with a brake) will not be a problem if you store it with the stock in its shortest position. My 16" M4 with hider and stock collasped fits with about 2" to spare.

What I would worry about is the height of your rifle with the TA11 mounted on the carry handle.
It would probably be close. You should measure it using the bottom of your PG as the lowest point and the top of the scope as the highest point.

Here are the inside dimensions: 36"L x 13-1/2"W x 5"D.

HKocher, Thanks for the info. I know the weapon will fit inside but it will not have a lot of space once it's centered in the case. It will only have about 1.5 inch of space above the scope, below the grip, left of the butt and right off the comp end. Will the case close and seal properly given those dimensions.

Awesome. Nice set-up DVDTracker. I think the #1700 is a lot smaller. I thought the case came with solid foam on the bottom half and the other type of foam that has ridges (for lack of proper terminology) on the top half.?

Is the brake on a 16 inch barrel or 14.5? With a 14.5 your rifle should measure out to an exact 32 inches.
