My $5 hardshell carbine case

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Carbines' started by Biggunz, Feb 4, 2008.

  1. So there I was wandering around Dicks sporting goods store with a $ 20 gift card in my pocket, when I come across a hardshell arrow case that I think can be modified to hold my 995 ( ticketed price $14.95). I take it to the register and it rings up $4.99 much to my pleasure ! :wink:

    I threw in some old foam pieces I had laying around. When the little lady goes to the craft store I will have her pick up some full length foam and re-line the case.

    As you can see in the last picture, I will need to trim out a section of the plastic storage compartment to accomodate my hi-rise scope mount.
    The compartment on the opposite side is perfect for about 3 mags.

    Good deal, probably clearance because the foam liner was missing.
     
  6. Not a bad deal... perhaps I will head over to the local Dicks and see what I can scrounge up.

    I like that case! I've got mine in a Doskocil rifle case and it's about 2 feet too long. They just opened a new Dick's close to here...I've been looking for a reason to check it out :)

    Nice find Biggunz!
    I found the same deal about a year ago, still has the $4.97 sticker on it :lol: I guess it's that time of year for the archery stuff going on sale again.
    Those storage areas hold a 50 rd box of ammo perfectly, and I stick mags in the arrow slits so they don't go anywhere.
    My only complaints are that the case is a little small for 2 995s, and I didn't grab a second case when I had the chance.
    *AKs fit this case too*
