Pump Gun Case

Hey guys, i recently picked up the empire sniper and love it. I was just wondering if anyone knows of a cheap but sturdy case that i could pick up. Im open to all ideas even if it takes a little modding.

Leave ur opinion and what u use to take ur gat to/from the field whether it be put together or thrown into ur bag with all the pieces taken off.

I personally use Gen X Global's gun bag, they're affordable and simple. They have two velcro strips to secure your marker in place.

Personally, I just use a giant towel wrapped in some duct tape (like a true budget baller lol), although I have had my eye on the Body Bag by PBMafia. They also have a bunch of cool pump harnesses.

Does anyone know of a good case that will hold multiple things, like the empire box, just a more durable one. One that will hold a couple barrel backs, tips, parts kit, stock class tube, etc?

It all depends on how you pack and how much gear you want to carry.

Most people throw their marker in a laptop sleeve and it works well.
There's aluminum cases that are for tools that you can buy from Lowes/Home Depot.
Plano makes pistol cases and the 4 pistol case will hold a marker, barrel, backs, and other stuff comfortably.

When I'm running light setups, I tend to use either my Empire Heater backpack or my NXE Gun bag. It holds everything except clothing, cleats, and my mask.

I run a big box rolling duffle bag and i like to keep my stuff safe and neat; while bringing my pump and electro setup to the field. Im just going to pick up a plano case because it will most likely be able to carry all the stuff included with the empire sniper. Does anyone know who would most likely carry them?
I checked walmart, but im going to check big5 and dicks later on.

Cabela's tactical pistol case. It's got pockets on the front for some extra storage as well.

What is the foam like?

I had the single for my SR9 and two magazines. The it was the egg crate kind.

I know it has the flat foam
But is it the tear away type or do you have to cut it?

You can find pistol cases for less than $20. Here is something similar to what I use:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Plano-Gun-...Black/20893850
Got mine at Big 5 sporting goods.
Holds my pump on top layer then barrels, inserts, and tools on bottom.

For now ill stick with the box that comes with the empire sniper, i just think it takes up to much space in my gearbag.

Those pistol cases work good. I got one from Bass Pro Shop then just took out the foam and replaced it with the Empire Sniper foam straight out of its box.

I use an aluminum case with foam from Lowe's....cheap, extremely sturdy and you can fit the foam to the gun. $25.00.
