My Pelican 1700 case is all fitted for my TM1000 and ready to travel to Norway next week. I used one of these cases last year with my Steyr and found it to be rock solid. This case meets the luggage standards for airline usage without generating extra baggage fees. I also prefer to negotiate airport terminals with the smaller, less conspicuous case. It just doesn't "scream" gun like a standard long case does.

I also like the hey this might not be a gun felling in the airport. I would travel to my fathers house in AZ and bringing the 1750 was a pain in the ***. I also like the two point sling. Im in the process of putting one on as we speak.

God speed and break a leg,

Brent,

Thanks! I also like the fact that my TM1000 only has one screw holding the stock to the action. With this set up it's really easy to pack up and go.

I have my sling attached at two points, but I shoot offhand with it using the one point configuration. It has a quick release on the rear stud that allows me to quickly detach and use as a single point. It works great that way. Of course it meets WFTF core rules as well.

Take care,

Harold

I like the layout of the components in the case. Well protected.

Good luck in Norway.

Remember to have fun while there.

Best regards,

Nice set up. It's the same case I use with my Steyr for the same reasons. Small enough to avoid extra charge and not as "gun casey" as some. I even put a Taylor Guitar sticker on mine!

Greg,

I was in a hotel a few years ago on an elevator with one of my really large rifle cases. Another guy on the elevator wanted to know what kind of guitar I had in the case. So, I guess even an oversized case will pass sometimes as a guitar case. It's just a lot less conspicuous using the shorty case.

Good plan with the sticker!

I see that many break their rifles down to fit into the smaller cases to avoid extra luggage charge. What do you do when traveling to and from your hotel and the range? Do you break the rifle down every time and case it back up? Or do you bring a soft case to carry it around without having to tear it down for short trips? Or some other plan?

Thanks
