TRUNK CASES FOR TAKEDOWN SHOTGUNS AND DOUBLE RIFLES

Premium leathers such as Cape Buffalo, Elephant, Rhino, Alligator and many others may be used for binding the exterior of your case. Case frames and wood trim are available in many exotic woods. Fitted tools may be made with our standard Ebony and Rosewood or ivory, horn, Coco-Bola and Padouk. Brass furniture can be engraved and custom lid-mounted nameplates may be made to order in any size, shape and material. Gold-embossed leather and parchment labels can be fitted inside the lid with any text or logo. Almost any item may be fitted into the interior along with the firearm. Prices quoted on request.

SLANT FRONT OR "COFFIN" CASE

For those desiring a case of minimum weight and dimension with few or no accessories, we have recreated an early style trapezoidal case commonly known as a “Coffin Case”. By fitting shotgun barrels on their side with the forearm attached, this style case can be made about fifteen percent smaller than a standard trunk case.

FITTING CUSTOMER SUPPLIED TOOLS AND ACCESSORIES

Customer-supplied tools and accessories may be fitted in a variety of configurations, usually in a layout that will utilize the least amount of space within the case, as seen here.  While we offer a good variety of basic cleaning and maintenance tools, we can often special order bespoke items from gun makers and tool suppliers.

TWO TIER TRUNK CASES WITH LIFT-OUT TRAY

This is the strongest and most convenient configuration for casing guns and pairs of guns with multiple barrels and large numbers of extra items such as scopes, tools, cleaning and loading implements, etc. A very wide flat case (wider than about twelve inches) can be inconvenient to access and carry and can be vulnerable to breakage at the hinge line when the lid is open and back against it’s stops. The bottom tier may be partitioned to carry cartridges so long as the weight factor is considered. Campaign style flush brass handles may be fitted at each end for ease of transport.

TRUNK CASE FEATURES

We offer nearly unlimited customization options, lift out tool trays, hand stitching, brass corners, padded covers and custom made to order tools.
