    you don't need to spend anymore then what the foam will cost you make a custom foam fit your gun in. you can do it yourself and be done in under a hour.

    they are a ton of tutorials on YOUTUBE that will guide you through how to do it. it's not rocket science doing it, or so complicated that you have to have someone else do it and pay a bunch of money for that.

    you can use a carving knife or a xacto knife, box cutter etc... here is a example of one of the many tutorials on it,

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmGjcwHOJ0k

    there a bunch of others on there.

    I cut the foam for my 9mm belt fed AR upper. I used a box cutter, because that was what I had, wasn't about to go out and buy a carving knife or a long razor blade like in the tutorial.

    if the darn upper wasn't so thick all around, I would have just layed it in like the lower.

    I went for sides and corners. Damn thing liked to bounce around so it did hit and bounce off multiple sides on each drop test. I wanted to break the thing. I am still tempted to do one more test and thats throw it out of a moving vehicle at about 40mph.

    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    Not that I have seen, BUT Sams club has a 44'' one that I will be purchasing to do a test on in the future. I am almost 100% sure the units from Sams and HF are the same mfgr just rebranded.

    Thanks for the review as I saw them and was interested but since it was HF wasn't sure if it was a good deal or not!

    shibbykins , lets see how you are using your case for.


    below is my case for the MP5K. didn't need to spend money on foam, there was a cushioned chair that has been in my basement for the last 30 years or so, cushions was filled with huge foam blocks, it's what I used for my 9mm belt fed and had PLENTY more, so I just had to cut it to fit this NVG case . the bottom of the case I was able to cut out 5 slots for the mags to fit in.
