New gun case I made!

I thought I'd hop in a show you guys a case that I made recently. I set it up to house my CZ + One with corresponding magazines. Any input is appreciated!
All Aluminum, fully tig welded with Stainless hardware, custom engraving and polished top lid.

Enjoy!









And the beginning of the lids for the latest cases. Got something fresh planned for these guys

Thanks! Just started one for 2 pistols, and another large rifle case. Pretty stoked about how this one turned out.

The shell is comprised of 1" x 1 1/2" channel around the outsides, so there's a nice lip around the inside of the top and bottom shell. We have a roll of foam being delivered today that will pop down inside those slots to make for a clean look on the inside. I'll post some more pics when its set in with a pistol or two to show relative size. We're also trimming the contact faces of the top and bottom shells with very thin rubber to make a seal when shut

That is AWESOME!!! Yours is a work of art and the craftsmanship is very obvious. Very cool and 2 thumbs up.

All I have are crappy display boxes.

Absolutely! I just got some good pics of the foam inserts and the placement of the pistols. The ones to follow will still have a slight flare to the latch side but will not have the large chopped corners that this one do. Offers a little more interior space and ease of assembly. Shoot me a PM after I put the pics up if you're interested.

Great welds. Looks like a roll of dimes on its side.

Carcus - No problem. Give me a length on the can and the options you would want ie: satin polished with 800, mirror finish, and any engraving. Also locking or non locking latches. Coming soon.... Ceracoted cases. Proceed to let your imagination off its leash

Why aren't there cut-outs for the guns in the foam? Looks like they would slide around

Nice work

Very nice, take it to the next level and machine some hinges and latches next, attach with some welds instead of bolts!

Looks like you could use four layers of 1/2 the thickness, then make the inner layers cutouts for better presentation.
