MTM Double Rifle Case

MTM Case Gard is introducing its new RC51D double scoped rifle case, a hard case that can hold two scoped long guns or any combination of firearms which measure up to 50.5 inches long. Though the RC51D has plenty of interior storage space, the outer shell of this case was designed to be as compact as possible in order to take up less space when stowed in vehicles and making it less cumbersome to use. Additionally, the high impact molded plastic exterior clamshell of the RC51D case has tie down grooves to make it easier to strap onto the luggage rack of any ATV or similar outdoor-oriented off-road vehicle. The RC51D’s exterior also has robust snapping latches in addition to strategically placed holes to allow users to lock their case with up to four different padlocks. The interior of the case is lined with egg crate style convoluted foam padding that helps keep firearms in place during transportation.

While hard sized rigid cases with interior foam padding provide the best impact and transportation protection for any firearm, these types of cases are prone to trapping humidity over extended periods of times as well. If left unchecked, this can damage the finish of a firearm from rust and pitting. Keeping desiccant packets inside your case and your firearms well-oiled can prevent this type of corrosion damage.

MTM Case Gard RC51D Rifle Case Specifications

  • Interior Dimensions: 50.5 inches long x 11.3 inches tall x 3.2 inches wide
  • Exterior Dimensions: 51.5 inches long x 14.4 inches tall x4.3 inches wide
  • Can hold either two rifles or two shotguns or any other pair of long guns up to 50.5 inches long.
