WTT Pelican 1500 for rifle case?

Recommended Posts

I have a Pelican 1500 that is a perfect size for taking many pistols and ammo to the range.  Or a variety of cameras.  I have had it for about 5 years with little to no use.

Looks just like this.

Foam inside is the type that has those little rectangles you can tear out to get a custom shape.  It's clean too.  This case is serious...it feels unbreakable.

 

I'd like to trade for a quality rifle case.  Does not have to be Pelican..but should be equivalent quality.

I have nothing to trade, but I can make a recommendation. I have one of these. Great case and I've compared it side by side with a Pelican. I'd give the Pelican the nod until you consider price, then it goes to the Plano.

At MSRP it looks like a decent deal, at Amazon price it's quite a bargain.  What are the internal dimensions?  Pretty stupid that they don't list that and reading reviews and customer answers revealed several different dimensions.

I have the 42" and it's 42.5" long on the interior.

42" would be a rifle case, 42cm is a pistol case.
