    Default Pelican Gun Case Cut-Outs?

    Is there anyone in the interior that custom cuts the foam in Pelican cases, as a business?

    I have a Pelican case to fit my rifle and accessories, just need to find someone in the interior that does that.

    I understand Wild West Guns in Anchorage does that, but looking for someone in the interior.

    Slowpoke,

    Run down to Big-V and buy yourself a used electric knife. Outline your rig in Magic Marker then cut the outline away. Or if you are a glutton for hardship, use a scalpel or Exacto-knife.

    Thanks, Brees, but the pick-n-pluck foam leaves squared off edges. I have the single piece foam inserts that came with my Pelican case.
    I may take on the project myself this winter, trying the electric knife method. I understand that some people outine it with toothpicks first as the magic marker on black foam may not be visible?
    Looked at the hot knife/ wire set up sold by AIH but they wanted $200, plus for that. Have seen cheap hot wire units on the web, though.

    I guess there is a u-tube video for everything, including wiping your.......
    I've cut many gun cutouts from the foam in Pelican cases...It just take a sharpee marker, a sharp knife (not a cheap cutco) and a little patience. It ain't rocket science.

    Where would we be in times of need were it not for scanning our witts off the internet and viewing utube??!!
