5.11 Tactical 42" Gun case

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MO Written on April 13, 2013
This is my first 5.11 gun case and I was amazed with the quality. The firearm is protected on all sides and ends with thick, dense padding. It's easily the best protection that I have seen in a gun case. I bought this for my Benelli M4 shotgun and it fits like a glove. The case is tall enough so that if I decide to add a sight to the shot gun, the case will accommodate it. The case does have the hard to find velcro tie down straps that so many cases don't include. The case has 4 different tie down straps so that it could hold 2 firearms, if they don't have scopes or large protruding magazines on them. If your firearm has a large magazine, or a scope or red dot sight on it, you will probably be limited to just one gun per case. The velcro tie down straps slide into a series of loops sewn into the case. It is possible to move the strap in a higher or lower loop to adjust where the tie down holds the gun, but they are not adjustable side to side to allow you to move the tie down to find the best place on your gun to fasten it down. They should be adjustable so that you can move them from side to side. On the plus side, the case does have two cinching straps that run around the center of the case so that when everything is loaded, you can cinch them down to securely hold the case contents in their place.
The case already has several storage compartments that are built in, but another big plus is the molle system which allows you to add additional pouches/cases to the inside...

Good case for what I needed

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MN Written on June 2, 2012
Good quality case, bought for an AR with a 20" barrel given that the smaller 36" case would be a pretty tight fit. Padding was better than expected, and quality is very good. Would have liked a couple AR magazine pouches in the pocket, but it's not an AR case so I can't complain.
Pros: Well made, good padding, light weight
Cons: General use case - e.g. no AR mag pouches, etc....
Would recommend: Yes

Exxecelent; just what I wanted

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IN Written on May 7, 2012
Wanted a rugged case for my Scattergun Tech. 870. This fits the bill perfectly, and with the retaining straps I found I could also carry my Benelli M1 Super 90 as well. This case excells, as do all 5.11 products.
Pros: Construction, features, versatility
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Best tactical rifle case I've found!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CT Written on April 3, 2010
I'm sorry to say I ordered this case from another store, and then found out a week later that it was backordered. I should have called Optics Planet first. I called on a Tuesday,looking to have this case delivered for Friday. Service was great! They checked to see that the item was in stock, took my order, and I had my 5.11 tactical 42" gun case on Thursday.Just in time for my first range trip of the year!
I highly recommend this case to anyone looking for a good quality padded rifle/shotgun case. I have been shooting for over 20 years now, and have tried many different weapons cases. The 5.11 Tactical cases are the best I've found. I like them so much, I now gave 3 of them, and will continue to purchase them for all my future rifles. Quality is top notch, on par with much more expensive cases, plenty of MOLLE atatchments, large front pocket, padded shoulder strap, and plenty of padding to protect my "baby".
I only wish it came with the removable backpack straps, like my 36" double rifle case. Other than that, this case has it all.
While this case is fairly new, I have 2 others that have held up very well for several years now, so I can tell you from experience, these cases are tough! Thanks Optics Planet!
Pros: Extremely durable, versatile, plenty of padding,great price
Cons: Does not come with backpack straps...
Would recommend: Yes
