will accept as baggage with out extra fees? Was told that the overall dimensions is 62" but the ones I have found either fall far shot of this dimension or exceed it by a inch or two.

Just ordered one. Right at 62". Don't have it in hand yet so i can't verify their claim though.

Prices seem to be about the same everywhere. Around $194 with foam.

......it cost $175 for all the slots I wanted in it. It's cheaper if all you do is the rifle.

Shipping is $44

I have a 1700 and it's about 36" long. That's the same model case that I used for my Steyr last year. I just bought a new one for my TM1000. I plan to take the action out of the stock to travel with it by airline. It does look a lot like normal luggage when traveling. So, I like using the shorty case since it doesn't draw attention in the airport. It also falls well within the airline luggage size limits.

I think you guys may be referring to the Pelican model 1770?
