    but their foam price (both sides solid too rather than eggshell on one side) isn't bad either

    going to cut the foam (that's the plan). Thank I can fit a 16" and 10.5" ar plus maybe 5 mags (stacked side-by-side), 2 glocks....maybe something else? I am going to have to to draw this out with tape on the floor and figure it out

    I bought my 1750 case from Westside Wholesale for $185 shipped. Not a bad deal, no shipping, no sales tax, and the cheapest price that I found. Should be here some time this week.

    I have a 1720 (1750 won't fit in my car lengthwise) and I got it from cases4less.com as well.

    The foam seems to do its job.

    I can fit an FN TPS (18" bbl, Magpul CT/R) and an LMT AR (10.5" bbl, Magpul CT/R, Aimpoint ML3) in mine, but, I have to take the Aimpoint off.

    There's enough dead space to where I could fit a slot for mags too probably (which is where the Aimpoint goes, in a cutout that used to hold 8 M14 magazines).

    I still need to do more research on cutting. I want to go the hot foam wire cutting, but need practice before I fuck up. The replacement foam isn't cheap by any means.
