I'm tempted to buy it but its hard for me to justify spending $150 bucks on what happens to be a plasic box with some foam.
indeed. you can get a Plano case for $30 that's the same description but having handled the two, I can tell you "plastic" and "foam" are the only two things they have in common.

that said, I've decided I'm going soft-cases with shoulder-straps. Much easier to bring more than a single rifle to the range.

I bought one. It's cool. That's the only justification.

It is not practical, because it is only configured for a folder, and is set up to specifically fit a rifle plus a pistol. I have never travelled with a rifle and a pistol.

Buying it just to rip out and replace the foam does not make sense either.

But it's cool.

Pelican Cases

Living in a hurricane zone, Gulf Coast Texas. I have several Pelican cases, two large ones 1600, 1620 with wheels, and one 1510 with wheels that is the largest one that can be carried on the airlines. In one of the 1600, it came with foam that was designed to carry 12-94f, I cut the foam in half to carry pistols in each of the larger cases. The foam takes up half of the case and the other half is to carry accessiors, bullets, mags and stuff like that. The 1510 is my gun range case, hearing protection, targets, shooting glasses and on and on...I am very happy with the cases. The only thing is one can load up the larger case to a point you can not lift them, hence the 1620 with wheels.

I bought one right after I bought the Classic. The reason I bought the Pelican product is because we use them where I work. We ship extremely sensitive equipment in these cases and have never experenced a damaged item. If you have a scope you will have to cut out the foam for that. Are they worth the money, that's up to you?????

i thought it was neat but didnt have a use for it so I passed. Sig already gives you cases when you buy their guns :p
The Pelican/Sig case is O-ringed and very heavy duty unlike the case that the Sig comes in.

Muzzle your toally missing the point. It's not what it looks like, it's what it does, which is keep your rifle protected from damage and water/moisture, everything but fire basically. When all is said and done, add ons etc. most guys have about 2K invested in their rifle. I think less than 10% of that cost to protect it for life is a good deal. Just my $.02

I really hope people dont use rifle cases for long term storage, if that is what you are suggesting.

Just received the Sig Pelican case. Very nice case!! Tough, heavy ... and with two "keyed alike" masterlock padlocks, fairly secure.
I think they are definantly worth the $$$

sig sauer overrun pelican case

I bought one, and it is great. Better protection for longer storage of the gun. A person had more options with a pelican, as you can custom cut foam.

I can't find the SIG556 Pelican case on SIG's website anymore... Would this happen to be similar to the Pelican 1700? I have a Classic with Swiss side folder stock and I'm wondering if the 1700 would work. The interior dimension is 35.75" long, so it wouldn't work unless the stock is folded. Does anyone have the 1700 and use it with a folding stock? Here is the 1700: http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail.php?Case=1700

Basically, I'm looking for the smallest hard case that would work with my Classic with side folding stock. Any help or suggestions for cases would be very appreciated!

I haul my guns back and forth in the bed of a truck. I need the strongest case I can get in case I get into a crash or roll over. I don't want my weapons bouncing on the asphalt. I use Pelican/Storm and Anvil cases most of the time. I also have a couple of other older high end hard cases, but I don't remember who made them.
