Plano's AirGlide™ Rifle Case Popular with Shooters

Among injection-molded rifle cases, Plano’s AirGlide™ case is unique in holding a rifle vertically, in foam cradles. This allows ample room for the 3″-wide fore-ends on BR and Varmint rifles. The foam blocks front and rear can even be trimmed for a custom fit, and velcro webbing straps hold the rifle securely. The AirGlide’s hinged top-opening lid provides ample clearance for large target scopes, with no side load on the turrets. (We’ve found that some eggcrate foam-lined gun cases can put enough pressure on scope knobs to alter your zero.) Measuring 51 1/2″L x 7 3/4″W x 12 1/4″H, the AirGlide can easily handle rifles up to 50″ in length. That should hold BR rifles with barrels up to 29″.

Priced attractively, ($29.97 at Sportsman’ Guide), the AirGlide has proven very popular with Varmint shooters and BR competitors. We’re told that, at last year’s West Pennsylvania Groundhog Shooting Championships, 1/3 of the competitors stowed their rifles in Plano AirGlides. Lockable and airline-approved, the Plano AirGlide offers excellent performance for the price.
