Custom cut foam gun case

Post by Tmiller » Sat Oct 13, 2018 9:07 pm

Does anyone know where I can purchase either a Pelican or other hard case with a custom cut form insert for a M53.

Not sure,I think most guys buy a gunners box to hold everything. That would have to be one hell of a case to have cutouts.Its a very heavy weapon I cannot imagine foam holding it and it not shifting while carrying,but a gunners chest has supports cut out and are made specifically to hold it. The pelican cases i seen for tge 1919a4 were not cut out and were sandwhiched.

PE (Polyethylene) is a hard closed cell foam that would probably hold up to a MG42. As said though, that would be one heavy case. Still, if .50 cal shooters can lug their cannons around in a Pelican case, a MG42 would be doable too. mycasebuilder.com is just one place to look.

Anyone got links to places that make the gunners chests mentioned?

I used a plastic case made for two shotguns and cut the foam myself. It's a lot cheaper than a Pelican case, and holds my 42 securely.

Buy a Pelican or Nanuk case and cut the foam yourself. It's quite easy. I did mine with masking tape, a box cutter and a paint mixing stick (to help cut straight lines).
