Some sort of luggage is always needed to transport firearms and MTM’s 42” Tactical Rifle Case is a great option. It is perfect for compact rimfires, short-barrelled centrefires, AR-15’s or air rifles.
MTM are a long-standing injection moulding specialist with excellent quality control. This is subtly demonstrated by the four snap latches allowing the case to open and close without misalignment from the hinges or bowing of the body. There are thick foam liners within, each offering plenty of neatly cut slots to position the anchor straps exactly where you need them for a specific rifle or additional accessories. These Velcro loops show steel eyelets, fastening securely to the sturdily webbed and stiffened injection moulding with the supplied screws. It takes around 10 minutes to set up the case to secure an air rifle, spare buddy bottle, pellets and magazine for transit.
External padlock tabs are moulded in for security and carry points are also offered for aftermarket straps. The durable polymer has survived freezing weather without cracking if dropped on the ground, conditions where other units have often failed! The maximum internal dimensions are 42x12.5x3.5” (1065x317x89mm) and the outer measures 43x14x5” (1095x350x130mm). A 52” version is soon to appear with all the same features for larger rifles from a brand whose injection moulding back catalogue inspires confidence in new products!
