I'm using this for an AR-15 w/ handle-mounted scope, (4) 30-rd mags, detachable bi-pod, and cleaning kit. Using high-density foam in place of the included soft egg-crate and hand-cut compartments on one side, everything fits comfortably.
The case, hinges, rims, and latches are sufficiently strong to resist average human physical abuse, but is no match for that of subhuman airline baggage handlers. Overhead throw-downs, roundhouse wall-bashes, tandem stair sleddings, booted kick-stomp combinations and other time-saving baggage handling techniques would surely bust it wide open, causing a most indiscrete spilling of guts.
I was hoping for a relatively secure case with real, adult proof latch locks. Instead, two of the four latches are equipped with shallow cylinder(1.5mm deep) key locks and stealthily packed Fisher-Price keys. Using a standard-head screwdriver, the average 10 yr old could pick the locks in < 15 seconds, or if of above average intelligence and dexterity, gain entry in 1/10th the time by applying the screwdriver to the latches themselves. Poor quality latch-locks came as little surprise, but what did surprise and disapoint was the lack of any means to use a secondary cable or padlock.
If you want a hard case for damage-protection and carrying purposes, this is a great buy. If you want a SECURE hard case that can resist the ravages of United Airlines AND screwdriver-wielding children, look elsewhere.
Pros: Strong case for normal use
Cons: Mickey mou...
